Martha Randall

Nia Teacher Trainer
Toronto, Ontario, Canada

Martha is a Nia Black Belt teacher and on the International Nia Training Faculty presenting Nia Education intensives across Canada. She runs classes and workshops in Toronto and mentors Nia teachers worldwide. She brings 35 years experience and practice as a professional dancer and body/mind/spirit specialist, helping people take delight in their bodies and their dance.

Martha began her Nia career in 1996. One class was all it took to create a resounding ‘Yes!’ in her body/mind/spirit connection and start her on her way to complete the Nia ‘rainbow’ curriculum. She became a White Belt trainer in 2002 and Green Belt trainer in 2009.

Formal dance training began at York University where she received her Bachelor of Fine Arts in Dance (1979). Throughout her movement career Martha has played and studied in an eclectic range of movement modalities including: modern dance, ballet, contact improvisation, Gabrielle Roth's 5 Sacred Rhythms, tai chi and karate, yoga and clowning. Her current explorations include Pilates and Butoh dance workshops.

Martha has been a dance artist with Claudia Moore's Moonhorse Dance Theatre and choreography by Sylvie Bouchard for the series “Older & Reckless”. She often collaborates with musician and sound therapist Gary Diggins who offers live music with his group Triund to her classes. She has offered body awareness classes to educators through the Toronto Board of Education and has taught an expressive arts movement course at the Haliburton School of the Arts in Canada. She has also volunteered Nia classes at Gilda's Club, a support centre for women affected by cancer in Toronto.

Her compassionate and intuitive teaching style is informed by her passion for physical, psychological, emotional, and spiritual vibrancy in every day life. 

"I love to teach Nia and train people through the White Belt intensive so that we can all grow deeper roots and greater pleasure in the dance of our lives!"
