Capturing the essence of success for kinesiology practitioners

We up-skill practitioners to take their businesses to a new level.

What is the Nidana Collective?

“Nidana” is a Sanskrit word for cause or motivation for change and the casual relationship between connected links.

The Nidana Collective was born of the ideation of two experts in the field. Two successful Kinesiologists. Two people committed to EMPOWER SUCCESS for Natural Therapy practitioners. We offer a Certificate or internationally recognised Diploma of Professional Kinesiology, complimented with the tools to create a profitable and flexible business.

Kinesiology is underpinned by science, and encompasses the holistic functionality of what it is to be human – physical, mental, emotional, biochemical and spiritual. It accesses the unique essence of each person and empowers them to fulfil on what truly matters to them.

So, you want to be a Kinesiologist? Or maybe you are a Natural Therapy practitioner looking to expand your skill base and offering? Either way we’ll support you in achieving your goals.

We are successful practitioners in our own right. We love what we do, and want to share our success and skill to assist you in creating the same success in your business and your life.

So what are you waiting for?

So you’re ready? Maybe interested? Maybe still unsure? No matter where you are on the consideration scale give us a call or send us an email and we’d love to answer all your questions.

    Sarah is an inspiring teacher and amazing health practitioner. Her knowledge of all aspects of the physical, emotional and spiritual body is extraordinary. As a kinesiology teacher Sarah has a unique ability to break down difficult concepts with examples to make them relatable and easy to understand. I have thoroughly enjoyed studying with Sarah and have also had remarkable kinesiology balances with her as a client. Sarah cares deeply about her students and clients and I can not recommend her more highly.

    Lotte Genillard

    I am currently completing a diploma of Kinesiology with Sarah and I am so amazed at how much we have learnt so far in 6 months. The information we receive both in our textbooks and in our practical sessions are really giving us all the fundamentals to being the best Kinesiologists we can be. The support we get from Sarah is amazing- empowering us to be the best we can be, there for support when we need both in and out of class and she makes class so much fun!

    Sarah Peaocl

    I have studied Kinesiology under both Terese and Sarah and can unequivocally recommend them to anyone interested in learning Kinesiology and making a difference in the world. Both teach the PKP Kinesiology syllabus thoroughly and with integrity, supporting you 100% through your learning journey of this wonderful complementary therapy. Having studied together under some of the worlds best Kinesiologists, including Bruce and Joan Dewe, the founders of PKP Kinesiology; they both have a similar fun teaching style and make even the most complicated of techniques seem easily understandable and doable. Under their teaching and mentorship, I now have my own successful kinesiology practice with over 200 clients on my books (and growing) and enjoy a career that helps others overcome adversity and reach their full potential and optimal health, nothing is more rewarding. Some of my clients are now even studying with Terese and Sarah at The Nidana Collective which brings me a huge amount of joy, knowing there will be more quality Kinesiologists in the world. If you are looking for a new and fulfilling career, want to learn Kinesiology techniques to enhance your current practice, or simply want to have access to powerful Kinesiology tools to help family and friends, I can assure you'll be in very good hands if you choose to study with The Nidana Collective.

    Katherine Anderson

    Terese was one of my Kinesiology teachers and her competence is astonishing. Not only is Terese an inspiring, gifted and successful practitioner who practices what she preaches, she is also a skilled and sensitive teacher. Her care for detail and subtle guidance ensures every learning style is met and matched with exactly the right amount of attention to get the most out of her students’ learning experience. I highly recommend any course Terese teaches. You will not regret it!
