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.

Philippe and Sabine, www.niamaste.com are living together in Auroville/India (www.auroville.org), an international spiritual community, based on the ideal of human unity. They are travelling and teaching worldwide, organizing, producing and leading Nia Retreats since many years.
Life As Art is our philosophy.
We are teaching and sharing movement forms, design work, commmunication, personal empowerment and inner wealth with the constant challenge to stay creative and up to date with our knowledge and passion.
Together with our students and other teachers we value life as a piece of art that one can mould, transform, create and define, using his body as the first basic tool to perform actions.
Energy is everywhere in every shape of life itself and serves as primordial aspect of our work, whether experienced while dancing, practicing martial arts, riding a horse or using the click of the mouse to design buildings and marketing material.We love movement as a direct perception of life in its curves, lines, spirals, contractions, expansions, explosions or letting go.
The panel of activities we propose are directly connected to our nomadic lifestyle, drawing influences from europe to asia and from north america to hawaii .
Music has become also an essential part of the puzzle, giving us the chance to develop sensitivity, emotional awareness and physical playfulness.
You are welcome to join us in this wonderful world of self creation and recreation, enjoyment and transformation, as a giant leap towards our true selves giving birth to our own life as a master piece.
Teaching in different Nia communities takes us to experience the realms of magic and spirit, binding the Nia dancers into a spiraling travel into oneself... wonderful time where to learn how to live the body's way , a real encounter with now and the magic of life itself!!!
