Nia Blue Belt Training
November 3, 2012 Ellen Webb Studio in Oakland, CA, US
About the Nia Blue Belt
Blue Belt, the second level of Nia education, explores how to create healthy relationships through body-centered communication. This intensive introduces the next set of 13 Nia principles, which focus on the mental, emotional and spiritual realms of the body. While the White Belt curriculum focuses entirely on awareness of physical sensation, Blue Belt applies these skills to explore internal sensations as perceived through – but distinct from – physical sensations in the body.
Blue Belt Principle #1: The Joy of Being in Relationship, integrates the sensation of Joy with the awareness that Joy is something outside the self, which we can invite into our physical experience. As a result, we begin to deepen our ability to listen with clarity and sustain awareness of details outside our body.
Meet the Trainers
My passion is movement. I took two Nia classes at a Spa in California, USA in 1991 and knew instantly that Nia was something I would do for the rest of my life. My degree is in dance and I was dancing professionally in New York City. I felt that with Nia I had found the secret to keeping myself in shape and the tools to teach dancers and non-dancers how to find fitness, freedom, and joy in movement. I am a Nia Teacher and Trainer, a certified personal trainer, certified yoga instructor, Gabrielle Roth 5 Rhythms instructor, and creative movement specialist for kids. I design Nia programs for people with Parkinson's disease and cancer and for schools and health clubs. I also design Corporate Wellness programs. My main focus as a teacher/trainer is to deliver Nia in a way that is fresh, creative and deeply rooted in joy. It is very satisfying to watch someone discover how to move his/her body in a way that is healing, expressive, and unique. The creativity of Nia is what keeps my passion for it alive. I am based in New York City and travel with Nia wherever I am called to teach/train. Come dance with me!
