Moving to Heal Teacher Training

Moving to Heal Teacher Training


Designed with the unifying theme of healing, Moving to Heal (MTH) teacher training provides you with the knowledge and skills to deliver therapeutic benefits to students through the Nia class experience. Founded on the art of movement and the philosophy of The Body's Way, you will learn techniques to adapt Nia therapeutically and how to successfully engage people using Nia movement and Dancing Through Life principles to feel better.

Topics covered include philosophy of healing and The Body's Way, sensation science, somatic anatomy, Nia movement, and how to work with music to enhance a therapeutic movement experience. The training places specific emphasis on the ethics of healing and compassionate leadership while considering the needs of diverse students, e.g., cancer patients, Parkinson's Disease, trauma recovery, or healing post-injury. The course includes topics on business and marketing.

Upon successful completion of the Moving to Heal program including the training and independent assignments you will receive a certificate of completion authorizing you to teach the Moving to Heal class program.

This training is open to Livelihood Members.
