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.

Martha is a Nia Black Belt teacher and on the International Nia Training Faculty presenting Nia Education intensives across Canada. She runs classes and workshops in Toronto and mentors Nia teachers worldwide. She brings 35 years experience and practice as a professional dancer and body/mind/spirit specialist, helping people take delight in their bodies and their dance.

Martha began her Nia career in 1996. One class was all it took to create a resounding ‘Yes!’ in her body/mind/spirit connection and start her on her way to complete the Nia ‘rainbow’ curriculum. She became a White Belt trainer in 2002 and Green Belt trainer in 2009.

Formal dance training began at York University where she received her Bachelor of Fine Arts in Dance (1979). Throughout her movement career Martha has played and studied in an eclectic range of movement modalities including: modern dance, ballet, contact improvisation, Gabrielle Roth's 5 Sacred Rhythms, tai chi and karate, yoga and clowning. Her current explorations include Pilates and Butoh dance workshops.

Martha has been a dance artist with Claudia Moore's Moonhorse Dance Theatre and choreography by Sylvie Bouchard for the series “Older & Reckless”. She often collaborates with musician and sound therapist Gary Diggins who offers live music with his group Triund to her classes. She has offered body awareness classes to educators through the Toronto Board of Education and has taught an expressive arts movement course at the Haliburton School of the Arts in Canada. She has also volunteered Nia classes at Gilda's Club, a support centre for women affected by cancer in Toronto.

Her compassionate and intuitive teaching style is informed by her passion for physical, psychological, emotional, and spiritual vibrancy in every day life. 

"I love to teach Nia and train people through the White Belt intensive so that we can all grow deeper roots and greater pleasure in the dance of our lives!"
