Green Belt focuses on developing skills to effectively teach Nia using Nia White Belt Principles.

Delivering the Nia Experience is phrase we use to express the transformative power of Nia. As a teacher you aim to deliver the Nia Experience every time you teach; your role is to guide people through a meaningful journey of physical conditioning and self-discovery. The student's transformative experience comes from your ability to listen to the music with detail, dance the choreography with passion and share your personal experience of sensation in your body.

This 5-day training comprehensively explores the objectives of delivering Nia turning White Belt principles into real on-the-dancefloor skills. 

Open to All Nia Teachers - All Levels

  • New teachers develop confidence, craft and skill by learning and practicing the foundations of teaching.
  • Seasoned teachers refine and deepen their understanding, building on their craft and receiving feedback from peers to deliver the most powerful experience possible.
