About the Nia White Belt
The Nia White Belt Training is the first level of a five-belt training series that presents a body-centered approach to health, wellness and fitness. If you have a desire to share Nia in a professional capacity, the White Belt Training is your entryway into teaching. Those who choose to pursue the path of personal enrichment use this training as a starting point for becoming a master student.
Over the course of one week, you will comprehensively explore physical sensation through five core-competency areas of study including movement, music, anatomy, science and philosophy. This joyful journey into the self is instrumental in helping you develop body knowing by learning to listen, interpret and consciously respond to the information your body communicates to you via sensation. Enroll in an upcoming training today, and positively shape the way you feel, look, think and live.
Upon graduation, you are eligible to become a livelihood member. As a livelihood member, you obtain a teaching license (whether you decide to use it or not) and have exclusive access to an in-depth continuing education program, an online forum, and special benefits and privileges. You may enroll in the Green Belt Training - which is dedicated to the craft of teaching - at any time after completing your White Belt Training. You may also enroll in the next level of training, Blue Belt Training.
Meet the Trainer
My passion is movement. I took two Nia classes at a Spa in California, USA in 1991 and knew instantly that Nia was something I would do for the rest of my life. My degree is in dance and I was dancing professionally in New York City. I felt that with Nia I had found the secret to keeping myself in shape and the tools to teach dancers and non-dancers how to find fitness, freedom, and joy in movement. I am a Nia Teacher and Trainer, a certified personal trainer, certified yoga instructor, Gabrielle Roth 5 Rhythms instructor, and creative movement specialist for kids. I design Nia programs for people with Parkinson's disease and cancer and for schools and health clubs. I also design Corporate Wellness programs. My main focus as a teacher/trainer is to deliver Nia in a way that is fresh, creative and deeply rooted in joy. It is very satisfying to watch someone discover how to move his/her body in a way that is healing, expressive, and unique. The creativity of Nia is what keeps my passion for it alive. I am based in New York City and travel with Nia wherever I am called to teach/train. Come dance with me!
