The Nia White Belt Training is the first level of a five-belt training series that presents a body-centered approach to health, wellness and fitness. If you have a desire to share Nia in a professional capacity, the White Belt Training is your entryway into teaching. Those who choose to pursue the path of personal enrichment use this training as a starting point for becoming a master student.

Over the course of one week, you will comprehensively explore physical sensation through five core-competency areas of study including movement, music, anatomy, science and philosophy. This joyful journey into the self is instrumental in helping you develop body knowing by learning to listen, interpret and consciously respond to the information your body communicates to you via sensation. Enroll in an upcoming training today, and positively shape the way you feel, look, think and live.

Upon graduation, you are eligible to become a livelihood member. As a livelihood member, you obtain a teaching license (whether you decide to use it or not) and have exclusive access to an in-depth continuing education program, an online forum, and special benefits and privileges. You may enroll in the Green Belt Training - which is dedicated to the craft of teaching - at any time after completing your White Belt Training. You may also enroll in the next level of training, Blue Belt Training.

Kelle is a unique teacher trainer. From her 13 years of being a Rolfer and Rolf

Movement Therapist, she brings a rich understanding of the human form and an

'integrationist' approach to looking at, sensing and moving the body. Her classes

are athletic and undeniably packed with power, yet her years of work in the

Healing Arts bring depth, compassion and choice into every move, making the

class experience deep, yet intuitive. Kelle teaches from The Body’s Way

perspective, encouraging students to ‘Know Thyself’ in order to become a great

healer to all. Beginner’s mind is a touchstone in Kelle’s trainings, as she brings a

sense of curiosity and wonder for being alive. Spontaneity, humor and an

undying love for the work of Nia are a few of the unique gifts she shares with her

students.

"As a trained and certified Rolfer and Rolf Movement Practitioner, I have

discovered how to get in, move and successfully thrive in my body and my

profession with The Nia Technique. How? I use my body and movement as

medicine. I invite you to join me in a week dedicated to blending the concepts of

the Healing Arts (Rolfing Structural Integration) with Nia. The Nia White Belt

Intensive Training is designed specifically for somatic practitioners and

consumers desiring to add movement tools of body/mind/emotions/spirit into any

field of therapy. I love sharing my ‘integrative’ perspective of the body and

teaching new ways of creating systemic health and wellness by synthesizing

anatomy, movement, somatics and therapeutics. You'll learn how to attract

conscious dancers, movers, and seekers of whole-being wellness, how to

provide practical body and life movement tools, how to enhance your personal

enjoyment working in your field of health, and how to use movement to enhance

getting in, and living in the the body."
