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 Trainers
I have been passionate about educating humanity to help heal the world through the dance of Nia since 1995. I have been training Nia to teachers since 2002, first in Idaho and now worldwide. I have found over the years of training, that the Nia practice has generated an even stronger intention of Peace on Earth inside me. Not that I have to love or save everyone, but create an positive environment for individuals to be transported while getting a great workout no matter what their age or ability. Nia is an international language, like nature is. -It is the language of sensation or words without words, an alchemical formula for magic! Presently, I have combined my 20 years of experience working with children, my degree in Elementary Education, and the depth of Nia, to create a movement-based, educational program for pre-school age children. I will forever continue to share the joy and love of movement with all ages, playfully and energetically! My mantra: I am, therefore I teach.
Letizia Accinelli discovered Nia in 1999 while she was living in
Germany, and once she had a taste of this practice, she never missed a
class. In 2000 she started the Teacher Training with Debbie and Carlos Rosas
for her personal growth.
Given the opportunity to sub for a teacher a few months after her White
Belt graduation, she discovered that teaching Nia was an even better
experience than simply enjoying it as a personal practice. She started
teaching Nia in Hamburg and once she moved to Italy – her home country- she
cultivated the dream of spreading Nia there and starting a community. Her
students appreciate her sharing the joy of movement, her authenticity and
her warmth.Nia combines her passion for dancing, communicating, speaking different
languages, and teaching. Nia is one of the best gifts she has ever
received and one of the best she can offer.

Nel 2000 ha
cominciato la formazione con i fondatori della Tecnica , Debbie e Carlos Rosas seguendo i loro corsi di formazione e le loro lezioni in Germania e negli Stati
Uniti. Inizialmente la sua era una ricerca di crescita personale. Quando però
ha provato ad insegnare, supplendo una collega, ha scoperto che condividere Nia
era per lei molto meglio che praticarla soltanto.

I suoi allievi
la apprezzano per la sua capacità di condividere con gli altri la gioia del
movimento, per la sua autenticità e il suo calore.
Nia unisce la
passione di Letizia per la danza con il suo interesse per la comunicazione in
lingue diverse e per l’insegnamento.
Nia è uno dei migliori regali che Letizia abbia ricevuto e anche il regalo migliore che, con
gioia, Letizia può offrire.
