A dedicated Multimedia Artist, Professional Model, Dancer and Shamanic Guide, Pia Louise Capaldi aims to nurture the many faces of self-expression, as well as help others to unearth their expressive roots.
Having been exposed to the influences of jazz, opera, classical and world music since birth, Pia’s vast musical palate immediately drew her to the study of art and the emotive quality of the creative process. While being completely immersed in classical musical training, Pia Louise had the pleasure of performing in numerous competitive and non-competitive ensembles, as well as a pit orchestra for a theatre company. It was through the opportunity to play for dancers that she immediately felt the affinity for connecting movement and musical phrasing. After over a decade of devoted musical studies Pia shifted her focus to incorporate movement and dance; losing her heart to the strength and emotionally visceral nature of flamenco and the ethereal grace of sacred moving meditation, both of which she continues to train in, locally and nationally.
Pia furthered her studies on the creative process of art at the University of Southern Maine, with concentrations in sculpture, art installation and art history. It was here she finally began to cultivate a well-rounded fusion of her vast repertoire of music, the power of movement and visual design.
As a workshop facilitator and spiritual counselor, Pia incorporates her own adaptation of Shamanic Movement, inspired by her studies of the Andean (Q’ero) Tradition of Shamanic Energy Medicine to tap into artistic expression. .
Pia’s vision is to help others cultivate a healthy, safe spiritual awareness and personal practice rooted directly in the heart. It is her belief that through personal empowerment and the nurturing of the body, mind and spirit, one can reach a state of deep centeredness that can access profound personal clarity needed to manifest life goals, dreams and desires.
Pia feels the most important aspect of her artistic expression comes from a place of confidence, body awareness and aesthetic appreciation. It is through the release of passionate, emotional energy and soulful spontaneity that she wishes to inspire others through art and movement, just as they have inspired her.
Although she is primarily based out of New England, Pia has been a featured performer, artistic collaborator and creative workshop facilitator in events throughout the United States.

Pia‘s shamanic practice is inspired by her study of the Andean (Q’ero) Tradition of Shamanic Energy Medicine, her extensive knowledge of animal medicine and her gift of spiritual sight. Pia also incorporates her own original practice of Shamanic Movement, using moving meditation and carefully crafted dance sequences to remove trauma or heavy energy from the physical body and auric field.
