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
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
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.
