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. The Green Belt Training focuses on the craft of teaching Nia. This optional training is strongly recommended for all belt levels who teach or desire to do so. Wherever you are in your Nia teaching practice, this belt will take you to the next level.
