Here are four reasons to take a Nia White Belt training.

Tap into your highest creativity and knowledge through movement. Take the Nia White Belt training and dive into an experience all about YOU and YOUR body. More than a fitness class or instructional course, Nia is an ecstatic jump into dance, music, and body sensation that will enliven your health and vitality.

Four reasons it’s time to take the plunge.

  1. Learn to be in your body

Everyone wants to feel good. How can we do this if we’re disconnected from our body and how it feels in this moment? The White Belt training supports you to bring awareness to how your fingers feel, your elbow, the left hip, your whole system. As you incorporate the physical movement forms of Nia – dance arts, martial arts, and healing arts – your body, mind, emotions, and spirit shift to create a more aligned, dynamic you, that feels better.

  1. Gain greater body knowledge and become body literate

After the White Belt, you’ll walk away with a toolbox of body knowledge. Gain a better understanding of your body by studying anatomy through movement and observation. Identify, and embody the sensation of muscles and bones in the bottom of your feet to the crown of your head. Gaining body literacy is the number one body wisdom technique to staying healthy and sustaining a vital lifestyle.

  1. Become certified to teach Nia and qualify to teach Moving to Heal classes

Love Nia? New to Nia? Do you have a desire to inspire other movers and fitness seekers? Learn to teach. Assist others to re-model their body, mind, and spirit. Learn how to lead a class, create dance choreography, and get people in their bodies. Everyone who takes the White Belt training becomes a testament to a body-centred Nia lifestyle, a transformative practice that transfers from a Nia class to one’s whole life experience.

  1. Tap into your creativity

Dedicate an entire week to the Joy of Movement. Tap into your body flow and move how your body desires. Be seduced by the music in an environment that supports freedom and exploration – organically your movement expression will expand. You have vast amounts of creativity inside you, and the White Belt is the perfect platform to allow your dance to shine.
