Hilde Kaiser lives in Evanston, IL and teaches movement classes and leads women’s circles in the Chicago area. A true Gemini, she is fascinated by the infinite possibilities for creating and offering classes that feed the mind as well as the body. She has been teaching Nia, a holistic dance movement class, since 2015 and facilitating circles in one form or another since 1999. She feels that Nia and Primal Vinyasa are very complementary, and is looking forward to how the relationship between these two movement practices unfolds in her teaching.

A recovering academic, her career path has felt meandering at times. She has been everything from a breastfeeding counselor to a writing group facilitator. She studied earth medicine with Pixie Lighthorse for several years, completing all four cycles of earth medicine school. She is a practicing poet who has learned the hard way that we have to get out of our heads and into our bodies, and so she brings poetic language into her movement classes, and body awareness into her women’s circles. She is passionate about expanding her clients’ creative practices as well as their body confidence. She believes that art is made with the body. She is happiest when she subverts assumptions by combining modalities in unexpected places, such as bringing a full moon dance ritual to a medical gym and a literature-based women’s circle to an art studio.
