Portland, OR -- Tuesday, July 1, 2010 -- Those who wish to hone their Nia teaching skills can now register for one of ten Green Belt Trainings. Nia Trainer Helen Terry will be hosting four of these trainings at RanchONia, the new residential Nia training facility in Montgomery, Texas. The first training is scheduled to begin August 1, 2010, and the second will start on November 7, 2010. The following two will take place next year beginning on February 19, 2011 and November 16, 2011. Helen will also be offering Green Belt Trainings in Sussex, UK on April 10th - 14th, 2011 and in Charlottesville, VA on October 9th - 13th, 2011.

"It's phenomenal how many lives are being changed through Nia. I consider it a privilege to teach and share this wonderful technique," says Helen.

In Hamburg, Germany, Nia Trainer Ann Christiansen will lead a Green Belt Training from September 6th - 10th, 2010. Nia Trainer Holly Curtis Nastasi will lead three Green Belt Trainings in Santa Fe, New Mexico. The start dates for these are November 8, 2010, March 14, 2011, and October 10, 2011.

The Green Belt Training focuses solely on the craft of teaching Nia. Students learn to deliver choreography, cue, create intentional silences, and help people achieve their personal health, wellness and fitness goals. This optional training is strongly recommended for all belt levels who teach or desire to do so. It can be taken any time after completing the Nia White Belt Training. Spaces are sure to fill up quickly, as this is the first time the Green Belt Training has been offered by a Nia trainer other than Carlos AyaRosas, co-founder of Nia.

Nia Trainer Holly Curtis Nastasi began practicing Nia in 1993 following 11 years in the fitness profession. She holds a B.S. in Kinesiology and a Master of Education in Health Education from the University of Texas in Austin.

Ann Christiansen was the first Nia Teacher in Germany, and continues to spread the joy of Nia throughout Europe. In addition to teaching and training Nia students, she has worked as a physical therapist and kinesiologist. She also has experience in stress management, chakra balancing and sound therapy. 

Helen Terry has been teaching Nia since 1993. She holds a master's degree in Exercise Physiology and a Bachelor of Education in Physical Education. She is also an international and wellness presenter and Certified Body Ecologist.
