Movement and dance have always been a satisfying part of my life. Teaching Nia has been the perfect context for me to deepen awareness of myself and to share my gifts with people of all ages over the past 17 years. This year I have new locations to serve you. As Nia celebrates her 30th anniversary, I celebrate my 10th as a Nia White Belt trainer. Nia trainings bring the richness of Nia’s body of work into a beautiful setting for exploring our sacred potential as wholesome, artistic athletes, living in our bodies and our lives authentically and well. The White Belt is for individuals wishing to enliven their connection to themselves through movement and is the first step for those wishing to share Nia with others.

White Belt Training

Step into this challenging and powerful week, designed to empower your body and your life with practical body-centred education. The White Belt is the foundation for learning and teaching Nia. Everything begins with Principle #1 - the Joy of Movement. The principles of this belt focus on the physical realm of the body and learning how to sustain and increase sensation in the body for pleasure and self-healing.The White Belt weaves conditioning, meditation, music appreciation, experiential anatomy and creative expression on a dancing path of love and joy. The circle is alive with exploration and discovery!

There is something extra special to doing Nia to live music! Gary Diggins and Martha have been collaborating for 30 years so when his trio Triund shows up at class the interplay of bodies and music, art and sweat, sound and silence, breath and heartbeat is a real celebration.
