About the Nia White Belt
The Nia White Belt Training is the first level of a five-belt training series that presents a body-centered approach to health, wellness and fitness. If you have a desire to share Nia in a professional capacity, the White Belt Training is your entryway into teaching. Those who choose to pursue the path of personal enrichment use this training as a starting point for becoming a master student.
Over the course of one week, you will comprehensively explore physical sensation through five core-competency areas of study including movement, music, anatomy, science and philosophy. This joyful journey into the self is instrumental in helping you develop body knowing by learning to listen, interpret and consciously respond to the information your body communicates to you via sensation. Enroll in an upcoming training today, and positively shape the way you feel, look, think and live.
Upon graduation, you are eligible to become a livelihood member. As a livelihood member, you obtain a teaching license (whether you decide to use it or not) and have exclusive access to an in-depth continuing education program, an online forum, and special benefits and privileges. You may enroll in the Green Belt Training - which is dedicated to the craft of teaching - at any time after completing your White Belt Training. You may also enroll in the next level of training, Blue Belt Training.
Meet the Trainer
hi, I am Susan Sloan, the resident White Belt Trainer for South Africa. I was one of the first White Belts trained in South Africa and opened the first Nia class in Johannesburg in 2003. I had been a Yoga Instructor before I found Nia, running a few regular classes/week. After the debut of the first Nia class in 2003, Studio Kairos, the home of Nia Technique in Gauteng, was created by me and a wonderful group of co-creators, some of who are now also Nia Teachers with their own classes. Studio Kairos now offers 14 classes/ week, with at least 7 contributing teachers and has hosted many trainings including the Blue Belt and Green Belt. My passion is to teach myself and others to become more aware and to do this in a Joyful way. I believe everyone is destined to live a more Joyful life, and when you do what you love doing, you inspire others to follow their best journey too. The White Belt teaches you the tools of how to live in your body and learn to listen at every twist and turn on your path. What better way to learn about how to be more of You, than through movement awareness and Nia! I look forward to dancing with your body.......
