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 member. As a 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.

Nia Teacher Trainer
I was first attracted to Nia by its diverse influences. I had studied modern, jazz, and creative dance in school, folk dance with my social group, and dabbled in yoga, judo, and Tai Chi. I was amazed and pleased that someone else had made an integrated program out of my haphazard lifetime curriculum. I attended a master class with Debbie Rosas and Carlos Rosas when they visited my town and I was smitten with a sense of authenticity. I knew I wanted to study with them. Within a year,

I was first attracted to Nia by its diverse influences. I had studied modern, jazz, and creative dance in school, folk dance with my social group, and dabbled in yoga, judo, and Tai Chi. I was amazed and pleased that someone else had made an integrated program out of my haphazard lifetime curriculum. I attended a master class with Debbie Rosas and Carlos Rosas when they visited my town and I was smitten with a sense of authenticity. I knew I wanted to study with them.

Within a year, I registered for my first training. As I began preparing to attend the White Belt, I discovered that Nia provided a refuge of comfortable movement following 20+ years of knee and neck pain. Never an evangelist before, now I wanted everyone to know how much better their bodies could feel.

I continued my career as a gerontologist, offering recreation and exercise for older adults, never imagining that my Nia hobby would someday blend with my professional training. And now, I am certain that Nia has not only given me a fitness and lifestyle practice I can do for the rest of my life, but that many elements of Nia philosophy and implementation offer exactly what research is telling us is the path to healthy longevity. Nia provides myriad tools for resilience and sustainability for the body, the mind and the spirit. It addresses the many aspects of wellness, not only physical, but mental, emotional, social, environmental, spiritual, and vocational.

 I love adding helpful applications of the White Belt curriculum to the latter third of life.
