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 Trainers
I want to share this amazing practice with you!
I believe that JOY is available to all! The spirit of Nia is JOY, a way to touch peoples lives, discover our creativity and get our "stuff" done! With Nia we get to explore through movement, through the body, I love that, and I would like to share that with you. Regardless of what is happening in your life, you can walk into a room where Nia is occurring and experience Joy. Joy as a physical sensation in your body. Joy that you can use to heal your body and your life. A physical joy that allows you to feel better… by putting the drumbeat in your feet, the tambourine in your chest and the violin in your spine you can change your body and your life. In my Nia classes, events and White and Green belt trainings; you'll learn how to move in a way that's unique for your body, that honors your natural time and rhythm. Movement that makes you feel ALIVE. Come join me.
NIA IMMERSIONS: As a seasoned Nia Trainer, offerning trainings since 2003, I facilitate both the White and Green Belt trainings. The Nia White Belt is an opportunity to deepen your understanding and connection to Nia. The Nia Green Belt is a continued incredible experience and teachers you to master your movement with certainty from the perspective of a martial artists as well as a dancer and healer.
As a student and teacher of Nia, I am constantly discovering and sharing ways to live a sacred life in a pain free body. I travel internationally, as well as through-out the U.S., teaching in venues large and small.
Nia has increased my enthusiasm and curiosity for studying many modalities; Chakras, Kundalini Yoga, Continuum and Breema. I weave these disciplines into all that I do and weave Nia into all these disciplines. I am also passionate about art, storytelling and gardening. Through Nia, my creativity is at an all time high, allowing me to create workshops and retreats such as Chakra Journeys and DreamAlice.
Please let me know how I can help enhance your life through Nia classes, workshops and trainings
Testimonials: Stephaney Robinson is clearly the teacher I was meant to study and dance with. A vibrant, warm woman, Stephaney creates a welcoming community space, one in which laughter, creativity, and contemplation are at home. She walks a path that is deeply rooted in the earth and highly spiritual as well. And she brings a creative spirit to movement that I ~ and her other students ~ greatly appreciate. — Rene Caputo North Carolina
“Dancing with Stephaney is like venturing into a sensory bath that is part tribal, part heady reflectionist, and part git-down hootchy kooch. She inspires a vivid meditation that rocks the mind, electrifies the body and tickles the soul.” — Willi Jones, Performer, New York, New York.

My own discovery of Nia in 1989 was an invitation to healthy body, mind and spirit. Twenty plus years later, I am still fascinated with the creativity and depth of a of Nia workout. Dance with me in New York City at Shape Up NYC through Equinox, YMCA of Greater NY and Upstate New York. Beignning the fall of 2013, I will be offering white belt trainings for personal development and entry into teaching.
