Local Spotlight: Gail Condrick – Master Nia Instructor
Local Spotlight: Gail Condrick – Master Nia Instructor

I would argue that her name should be spelled G-A-L-E. Gail Condrick has the internal energy of a tropical gale force wind, though you’d never know it by her peaceful presence. She’s lived and taught in the Sunshine State for more than 24 years, and has been a Manatee County resident since 2007.

Most people readily recognize her as a Nia instructor, but what they may not know is that Condrick is a member of the Nia Technique Training Faculty, and one of only 44 people in the world licensed as a Nia Teacher Trainer, and the only Florida-based trainer.

Nia is a somatic education program that integrates practices from dance, healing arts, yoga, and martial arts to make fitness accessible for all. Much like belt ranking for martial artists, Nia offers its own levels of training, and Condrick received her First-Degree Black Belt – the highest ranking achievable – this past Valentine’s Day.

“I discovered Nia more than 18 years ago, and it completely transformed my entire being – my body, my life, my whole philosophy of wellness, living fully and healing on all levels – at any age,” Condrick shared.

Condrick refers to her classes as “soul-stirring joy through movement,” and she offers training in Sarasota, on Longboat Key, and on Anna Maria Island – quite the leap from her former stressful career as a government leader and award-winning television executive.

These days, Gail Condrick shares her passion and knowledge of fitness energy as a coach and teacher trainer. She’s also a Caroline Myss Archetypal Soul Coach, Reiki Master, and she facilitates Women’s Wisdom Retreats throughout the year.

What’s next for Gail Condrick? How about Gail Condrick – author? Her new book, Your Destiny is in Your Closet: Dressing Your Archetypes to Empower Your Life, will be released in 2014.

Gail Condrick offers Nia Taster Workshops to explore the art form for prospective students and teachers. Check her website for the latest events: www.GaelaVisions.com. Or, email Gail at info@GaelaVisions.com.
