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
Charlotte is a Black Belt Nia Instructor & Trainer. She has been teaching group fitness classes for 28 years. Also certified as a Group Exercise Leader (GEL) through the Cooper Clinic in Dallas, she began her Nia journey in a class led by Joanie Brooks in 1997 at the Concord Athletic Club in San Antonio. She became a White Belt Nia Instructor in February of 1998, with Trainer Holly Curtis and is an AFAA Certified Group Exercise Instructor.
In November 2010 Charlotte opened The DragonFly Studio, a small studio behind her home. With heart-felt Joy, she is teaching One-on-One Nia Sessions, Nia 5 Stages of Healing and Classic Nia at her studio. In addition she teaches at Two Hearts Yoga, subs Nia classes at the JCC and leads private classes at Diva, a non-profit for breast cancer survivors.
In September of 2011, after one year of extensive study and passing her Practicum, Charlotte became a Nia Trainer. Her White Belt Intensives are available on this site for registration. Charlotte is certified with AFAA to provide 15 hours of CE for the White Belt Intensive.
The mind-body-spirit approach of Nia has changed Charlotte's life. Her life's journey is to become whole, one conscious moment at a time. As a fitness professional, Charlotte has increased her flexibility, strength, creative expression and body awareness through her Nia practice. She joyfully brings this awareness to each of her classes and client sessions. Her hope is that each of her students will learn to deeply love their body in their journey to become Sensation Scientists.
