Nia 5 Stages Training

Embryonic, Creeping, Crawling, Standing and Walking

"For everyone looking to really dive into embodying the wisdom of The Body's Way, the 5 Stages is your answer. As a lover of the body, always interested in learning the how, what, and why, this unique somatic course makes it possible to learn, teach, and get paid to do what you love all at once. I am extremely excited about the learning process I created, which uses a simple class format, with 52 unique lesson plans, each designed to teach you and the student what makes living and moving in the body an amazing sensory experience. The Nia 5 Stages takes teaching to a whole new level, giving you language and body knowledge to turn every class into a rich somatic experience."
