Company historyMind Body Dance Fitness For Personal Enrichment
was founded and started in 2009, by Jan and Sherrie. They chose to create this website in order to show others that transformation is
possible for all of us, if we choose.
and Sherrie had each gained 40-60 lbs. of excess weight over the
years. Sherrie was highly addicted to sugar, sweet tea, soda, pies,
cakes, and cookies. You name it, she ate it! An addiction to sugar is one thing I have to be aware of every single day..says Sherrie. It would be so easy to step into the way I use to eat. I can not have a pie in my home or ice cream in my home. Just knowing there is more makes my body crave more the next day and the next day and. I feel better when I treat myself to a smoothie instead, Sherrie adds. Jan and Sherrie
both realized that their future health could be in jeopardy if they continued
on this path of sugar, overeating, and choosing an unhealthy lifestyle.
both chose to make a change in their lives, removing sugar and
unhealthy carbohydrates from their diet. They began eating a more
healthy and well-balanced diet of fish, chicken and fresh fruits, nuts,
beans and fresh vegetables. Occasionally they would enjoy whole grain
pasta and whole grain bread. They added exercise into their daily lives
and they have both lost weight. Now, they both look and feel younger and
have more energy.
They are true believers of healthy eating in
order to enrich the total mind, body and spirit so the entire body
system can work in harmony and at its full potential, the way that
nature intended it to perform. A total mind and body transformation is
possible for all who choose it with the use of proper nutrition,
meditation and and exercise you enjoy.
Sherrie attended the Nia White Belt Training in May of 2008 and then began her Nia journey bringing Nia to the Orlando, Florida area from 2008 until May 2011.
Nia was new to the Central Florida area so Sherrie decided to rent space
from other mind-body-dance-health and fitness owners who were open to
sharing their space with her. Sherrie was open to other opportunities
from locations such as: public libraries, senior centers that had space
available and wanted to share Nia with their community.
This arrangement gave her the time needed to nurture, feed and grow Nia
and a community overtime in the Orlando area.
introducing and sharing her Nia knowledge and experience to those
interested in an alternative to the standard workout that currently
existed in this area. When beginning her Nia teaching and business in
2008 her dream was to grow a Nia community in the Central Florida area
and one day pursue looking for a building to independently rent and then
expand their business further. Their long-term plan was to include the
construction of a building or existing building that would offer several
classrooms, plenty of space and a variety of opportunities for students
to come, learn, grow and have their personal lives enriched.
October of 2010 Sherrie was informed by her husband that a move may
take place in the near future. In June 2011 Sherrie, Jan and her their
Melissa made the move to North Carolina. Sherrie is currently teaching
Nia at the Gold Hill YMCA 1785 Gold Hill RoadFort Mill, SC 29708

forward to what is to come in the Carolina's. Sherrie has learned so much from those who
have connected with her over the years and wishes to thank everyone who
has stepped into her life and supported her along the way.

the Orlando area, Nia has just come to a gentle pause......until the
