For the beginning to seasoned mover, for the person looking to begin their teaching path to the person looking to deepen their connection to their body, movement and life. The White Belt Training takes you on a journey of self-discovery exploring the art of sensation. Beginning with the Joy of Movement, you will learn the foundation of Nia – 13 principles that will lead you to greater health, wellness and fitness for life. The gift of the White Belt is receiving the tools to take the magic of your Nia experience off the dance floor and into your life – “dancing through life.”
Personally, the White Belt is movement journey of self-discovery, self-healing and self-mastery. It is an amazing 7-days of immersing into the wisdom of the body, the study of Nia movement, music and joy enhancing life practices.

The post-training program includes 52 lesson plans that take you on a journey of the body’s way using Nia’s “look-listen-image” approach to anatomy. Laurie has knowledge of this practice and program from the inside out - having worked with its creator, Debbie Rosas, in its development since 2007.
Personally, the 5 STAGES program, specifically the post-training course of study, has deepened my understanding of anatomy from simple design of bones and joints to the body’s systems. It’s cognitive and poetic approach has increased my body’s intelligence. I apply the vocal tools to the way I teach, deliver trainings and communicate in life.
