Students of all ages love her compassionate, grounded style of teaching blended with her effortless ability to make a personal connection with each individual. As Vickie says, “I believe that when we live in harmony with our true nature, we naturally increase our vitality.” As a teacher, she aims to create an environment where students cultivate deep connections within themselves to find more aliveness, joy, and meaning.
When she’s not teaching Nia classes and trainings, you’ll find her upside-down in handstand, galavanting up Wind Mountain with her two awesome kids and golden retrievers, and splitting her literary indulgences between meditation books and some action-packed, pre-teen series.

Like a true Leo, Nia Trainer Allison Wright brings a fiery and fun spirit to every class she teaches. Allison has a degree in holistic psychology, and also studied music and neuroscience. She worked at Harvard’s Benson-Henry Institute for Mind Body Medicine, presented at Ohio State University’s Talbot Hall Addiction Medicine Clinic, and spent three years as an arts coordinator for an independent elementary school in Cambridge, MA.
As Allison explains, “Nia wasn’t a decision; it was a calling.” Those who have trained with her know her as a master storyteller, rockstar musician, and truly gifted teacher. Allison shows you how to hear music with your whole body. Her fun yet relaxed approach to the Nia training experience invites you to awaken through sensing; to become more self-aware in body, mind, emotions and spirit as you dance through life.
When she’s not teaching classes and leading Nia trainings, you’ll find Allison trekking through the Columbia River Gorge, writing in coffee shops, or at home, recycling and transforming coffee sleeves into magnificent artistic creatures for her art-education business, Accidental Art Project.
