Jag has been passionate about maintaining optimum health and physical fitness since childhood. At the age of 30, discovering Nia and meeting Debbie and Carlos changed his life and he never put his shoes back on again. Now, Jag says, “I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to teach this technique that does such a thorough job at conditioning the body and is also so creative and expressive as well.” Jag first obtained his White Belt in 1996, and acheived Black Belt in 2001. Since then, he has taught many classes and workshops from coast to coast and all across the USA and Italy and Ireland. In February of 2014, Jag took the next step and joined the avant-garde of Nia by obtaining his First Degree Black Belt. He is also trained as a Nia Five Stages teacher and a Nia FreeDance DJ. He got his Second Degree Black Belt in January 2019.

These days Jag maintains one weekly Nia class in Seattle and also drives all over the United States with River in the passenger seat. His intention is to teach Nia in any place along his path that will welcome him and his puppy pal to share the beauty and pleasure of Nia.
