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.

Martha Randall and Nia – An 18-year Love Affair!

When Martha met Nia in 1996, she was smitten with love at first step. Martha was searching for a movement practice that invited infinite possibility into a practical and body-centered system of education and Nia needed teachers committed to the transformative power of exploring fitness, fun and freedom the Nia Way. Martha is one of two Canadian trainers offering the Nia White Belt and Nia Green Belt intensive trainings across Canada. Martha’s students lovingly call her the Queen of Nia for her passionate and precise teaching of the Nia Technique in both her Toronto classes and her trainings.

Martha received formal dance training at York University in Toronto, receiving her BFA in 1979, and has studied and performed an eclectic range of dance forms, including modern, ballet, contact improvisation, karate, yoga, Butoh, clowning, Pilates and 5 Sacred Rhythms. Her compassionate and intuitive teaching style is informed by her passion for physical, psychological, emotional, and spiritual vibrancy in every day life. Nia is a dynamic context to discover, explore, unleash and enhance one’s individual potential to live a fulfilling and meaningful life, engaging our senses and listening to our bodies while enjoying the spirit of dance with a like-minded community.

Producer and Blue Belt Nia Teacher Johanna Timessen invites you to beautiful Yellowknife, Northwest Territories where she has been teaching Nia for 14 years. Her bright and sunny studio, Collective Soul Space, encourages learning, healing and peacefulness – a perfect surround for your White Belt journey. Yellowknife is located in a remote and scenic part of the Canadian Shield where you can experience all the wonders of nature alongside the amenities of a modern city. Fall is a perfect time to visit as the air is still warm, the water is still accessible and the night sky returns for the Aurora Borealis to be seen.
