Britta has been passionate about educating humanity to help heal the world through the dance of Nia since 1995. She has been training Nia to teachers world wide since 2002, generating an even stronger intention of Peace on Earth. Presently, Britta has combined her rich 20 year experience of working with children, her degree in Elementary Education, and the depth of Nia, to create a movement-based, educational program for children. Britta continues to share the joy and love of movement with all ages, playfully and energetically!

Her mantra: I am, therefore I teach.

Green Belt comprehensively explores all mechanics of delivering the work, including embodying the choreography, cueing, creating intentional silences, dancing to the music and helping people achieve their personal fitness goals. Whether you are a novice or a seasoned teacher, Green Belt will further your teaching skills. New teachers develop confidence, craft and skill by learning and practicing the foundations of teaching. Seasoned teachers refine and deepen their understanding, building on their craft and receiving feedback from peers to deliver the most powerful experience possible.

Britta says, "I personally feel and have seen Green Belt give teachers the tools to embody Nia on a deeper more physical level for themselves, so in turn they can provide a total MBES fitness class to their students guaranteed every time."

In addition to the 5 days Intensive Training, participants will also be able to take part in

  • a one day routine immersion for SOUL (this is scheduled for the day before the Green Belt starts, SUNDAY 28TH JULY, available at a discounted rate of just £55 for Green Belt trainees, full price is £80)
  • option to teach a track using your newly honed skills in a Celebratory public class in The Space Upstairs at 7pm on the evening of the final day of the training

Where on earth is Burntisland?! Our trainings happen in The Space Upstairs a mirrored studio with underfloor heating in Burntisland - a small seaside town on the East Coast about 30 minutes from Edinburgh. Links with Edinburgh Airport are quick, easy and inexpensive - as is the train from Waverly train station in the capital (just 40 minutes across the famous Forth Rail Bridge). The Caledonian Sleeper is also a good option from London.
