About the Nia White Belt

The Nia White Belt Intensive lays the foundation for all Nia training and education. In White Belt, you are introduced to the first 13 principles of Nia focusing on the physical realm of the body.

The Nia White belt is a 7 day intensive that you can take as the first level teacher trainer, or as personal growth to enhance your Nia personal practice.

  • The 52 Moves of Nia: the language of conditioning and self-healing.
  • How to work with the 8BC system: Developing listening skills to code and map music and sound.
