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.

Shannon first experienced Nia on the 2003 Shape Your Life Retreat with Shape Magazine at Red Mountain Spa in St. George Utah. Recognizing the power of the unique movement, she returned to Dallas and immediately began taking Nia classes. Shannon completed her White Belt in February 2004, her Blue Belt in June 2005, her Brown Belt in July 2006, and her Black Belt in July 2008. Dedicated to developing her Nia practice to share the power of awareness, pleasure, and sensation with others, Shannon has also completed For All Belts (2004) training, EMT training (2007), and the 5 Stages of Self-Healing Certification (2008) with Debbie and Carlos, the co-creators and founders of The Nia Technique. She completed the Green Belt training in February 2009 with Carlos Rosas. In October 2011, Shannon became a member of the Nia Faculty of Trainers as a Nia White Belt Intensive Trainer. She completed the Nia 52 Moves training in July 2012 with Nia co-founder Debbie Rosas and most recently completed her 1st Degree Black Belt with Debbie Rosas in February 2014.

For Shannon, her Nia training changed her path and her life, empowering her to shed 45 pounds and to step into the role of Nia teacher!
