Minna Aalto INTO Movement

Like so many of us, Minna Aalto took a few detours until she found her niche.  Instead of following a career with her Master’s degree, she was moved to carve out a livelihood by teaching Nia, a sensory-based movement practice that draws from martial arts, dance and healing arts.  Minna loves to share the joy of dance to people of all ages from kindergarten to seniors. She also creates music based on her poetry under her alter ego ‘Minna Twice’.  Check out Minna’s zest for a soulful life at www.dakinia.fi.
