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
I am a Black Belt Nia Teacher, White Belt Nia Trainer and Certified Melt Instructor.
Growing up in Vermont, I love the great outdoors. In school I excelled in dance, gymnastics and athletics. I obtained a degree in Early Childhood Education, taught for over 30 years and was a Director for 11 years. Much of my focus at this time was dedicated to helping children find joy in their bodies and spirits through movement. I've used this background to become an inspirational and supportive Nia teacher and trainer. I've been dancing Nia for 18 years and teaching for over 13 years.
I've spent the later part of my life dedicated to the health and well being of not only children, but adults. In 2012, my husband Marty Diner (Nia Black Belt) and I opened Joy in Motion Studio in the picturesque mountains of Boulder, Co to create a welcoming space for self awareness, community, trainers and events. We energetically strive to lift everyBody to find a lifetime of strength, joy and peace in every piece of their being.
It is the Joy of this practice that motivates me to foster teachers and dancers that not only love movement, but themselves and their bodies. Love your body!
