Nia Green Belt Training
March 4, 2012 Soma Ranch Retreat Center in Montgomery, Texas, US
About the Nia Green Belt
Green Belt is an optional training, which focuses entirely on developing and embodying the skills to effectively teach Nia. All belt levels who teach or desire to teach are strongly encouraged to attend this training.
The Nia Promise and Delivering the Nia Experience are phrases we use to express the transformative power of Nia; to a Nia Teacher's ability to deeply move and touch people within the classroom environment. As a teacher, your role is to guide people through a meaningful journey of physical conditioning and self-discovery. Teaching Nia is all about sharing your personal experience – your physical and emotional sensations, visual images and feelings. To do so, you must have a solid understanding of the form, objective curriculum and communication techniques.
Green Belt comprehensively explores all mechanics of delivering the work, including embodying the choreography, cueing, creating intentional silences, dancing to the music and helping people achieve their personal fitness goals. Whether you are a novice or a seasoned teacher, Green Belt will further your teaching skills. 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.
The Green Belt training includes a pre-training course based on the 13 White Belt principles. As part of the training, you will learn and work with the routine, Passion.

Thank you for considering a training with Helen Terry at SomaRanch.
My initial Nia trainings were all residential experiences with Debbie Rosas and Carlos Rosas. I found this learning style to be optimum.
A residential experience:
- removes distractions like figuring out what & where to eat each day
- eliminates the challenges of navigating your way to and from a studio
- provides a safe, nurturing and vibrant environment to relax and learn with others.
With spacious land and accommodations there is
- plenty of room to be alone AND
- opportunities to socialize, meet like minded folks and have fun in the process.
Let me know how I may help you more with regards Nia and training. Yours truly, Helen
