For questions about the San Rafael white belt intensive, please contact France-Laude (info below).


Nia student-teacher training is fashioned after the martial arts system - advancement through four basic belt levels that spans a minimum of four years.

The first level, white belt, focuses on learning all about the Nia basics and creates a foundation for the advanced study of mind body spirit work in both the fitness and the wellness fields.

The second level, blue belt, focuses on all aspects related to teaching, specifically guiding communication by emphasizing intimacy as the way to establish relationship.

The third level, brown belt, focuses on going beyond the physical, addressing all aspects of energetically working with the body, mind, emotions and spirit. The final first stage, the black belt, focuses on using personal creativity and art to create on-going life-style transformation and healing.

Each Nia Intensive consists of a 40+ hour, 7 day training program. Nia White Belt Intensives with France-Laude are held in San Rafael, Mill Valley and Nevada City California and in Rome, Italy and Paris, France.

Upon completion of the Nia intensive training, one is entitled to teach Nia as a certified teacher, provided that a Nia certification fee is paid annually.
