Nia Blue Belt Training with Britta von Tagen
Start: Saturday, January 20, 2018 – 2:00 pm
End: Friday, January 26, 2018 – 3:00 pm
Blue Belt, the second level of Nia education, explores how to create healthy relationships through body-centered communication. This intensive introduces the next set of 13 Nia principles, which focus on the mental, emotional and spiritual realms of the body. While the White Belt curriculum focuses entirely on awareness of physical sensation, Blue Belt applies these skills to explore internal sensations as perceived through – but distinct from – physical sensations in the body.
Blue Belt Principle #1: The Joy of Being in Relationship, integrates the sensation of Joy with the awareness that Joy is something outside the self, which we can invite into our physical experience. As a result, we begin to deepen our ability to listen with clarity and sustain awareness of details outside our body.
Britta has been passionate about educating humanity to help heal the world through the dance of Nia since 1995. She’s been training Nia to teachers since 2002, first in Idaho and now worldwide, finding over the years of training, that the Nia practice has generated an even stronger intention of Peace on Earth inside her. Nia is an international language, like nature is. -It is the language of sensation or words without words, an alchemical formula for magic! She will forever continue to share the joy and love of movement with all ages, playfully and energetically! Her mantra: I am, therefore I teach.
