Featured Wellness Ambassador: Maria Whitley
Field/area of expertise: Music & Movement teacher to children and adults
Credentials: Music Together Certification Level Two Teacher, Brown Belt Instructor of the Nia Technique
How did you get into this line of work? I began teaching early childhood music & movement in 2001 after taking a Music Together class with my (then) toddler. I walked out of the first class knowing that I had found my calling - sharing the Joy of Family Music & Movement. As a parent in the program, I realized how powerful of a healing tool music & movement can be. So, when we moved to Louisville in 2007 and opened Shine, I wanted to extend that sharing to everybody. I discovered the Nia Technique and am delighted to offer this opportunity of healing through movement to all ages and all fitness levels at Shine through teaching Nia.
