Notes About This Event

I am so excited to be hosting and producing the Nia White Belt Training this spring at Communio in beautiful Pensacola, FL with visiting Nia Trainer, Kate Finlayson March 9-15th, 2019! Communio is one of the most beautiful studios I have ever had the opportunity to dance in. With its natural light, floating hardwood sprung floors and healing energy, it's the perfect place to embark on a journey of self-exploration and self-healing.

The Nia White Belt Training presents a body-centered approach to mastering the art of moving, living & fully BE-ing in your body. Over the course of 7 days, you will comprehensively explore Nia’s foundational principles, taking you into deeper awareness of you & your body...accessing greater Joy & pleasure...& consciously living with PURPOSE. Whether you enter this training to go deeper into your personal practice, or to become a Nia Teacher, this experience will TRANSFORM you! Don’t miss this sensation-rich opportunity of self-discovery! Designed for all ages, fitness levels & educational backgrounds.


Nia White Belt Training takes you on a journey of self-discovery by exploring the art of sensation. Beginning with the Joy of Movement, you learn 13 principles for body-centered awareness. Each principle teaches you a variety of somatic skills for connecting to physical sensation in your body. Through the science, craft and art of sensation, you will learn Nia’s body-centered approach to health, wellness and fitness. Crafting with sensation is the starting point for all Nia teachers. The Art of Sensation is what brings magic to the Nia class experience.

The Art of Sensation is rooted in Nia’s philosophy of The Body’s Way. Sensation guides you to create health and vitality by moving your body in ways that feel good. Nia White Belt teaches you to develop body literacy – the ability to listen to your body, making choices that lead to health and total body well-being.

Nia White Belt teaches you the Art of Sensation through five core areas of study.

  • Movement – the study of moving, health + potential
  • Anatomy – the study of body parts + systems
  • Science – the study of body awareness, health + vitality
  • Music – the study of sound, health + expression
  • Philosophy – the study of the body’s inherent wisdom.

MEET THE TRAINER: Kate Finlayson, 1st Degree Black Belt:


What participants have said about Kate:

“Kate conveyed a mountain of information in a clear and precise way and held the attention of all 10 of the White Belt students in my class. Her zest for life and for Nia shown through her and infiltrated every one of us. Being with Kate, watching her,
learning from her, taking from her lead was a life-altering experience for me and I will forever be grateful to her for her patience, skills and desire to share this wonderful experience! “ ~Bonnie Carlin, Nia White Belt, Asheville, NC

“No words can adequately express the tremendous value of the white belt training. I wish every person could experience this training. I would repeat this training over and over and be able to discover something new every single time. Kate is an incredible trainer, whose passion and compassion for others is undeniable and makes the experience that much more memorable. I wish I had signed up sooner!”
~Alicia Castrogiovanni, Nia White Belt, Raleigh, NC

“I signed up for the White Belt as a true beginner. It felt like signing up for camp for ME! Kate and the White Belt curriculum came through for me in ways I didn't know I needed. I DID have fun, in fact, and learned that's it's not only okay, but also imperative that I move my body for the sheer joy of it. I made dear friends (younger and older than I) and we bonded like sisters. I learned that every single piece of Nia choreography is designed to HEAL the body and is based on solid research and ancient wisdom. Immersed in Kate's loving and clear reassurances, I relaxed into just absorbing the wisdom without worry about achievement or tests or regurgitating
facts. Best "camp" EVER!” ~ Eleanor Cole Levinson, Nia White Belt, Durham, NC
