Designed with the unifying theme of healing, the Moving To Heal Teacher Training provides you with the knowledge and skills to deliver therapeutic benefits to students through the Nia class experience. Founded on the art of movement and the philosophy of The Body's Way, you will learn techniques to successfully engage people using Nia movement with White and Blue Belt principles to feel better.
Topics covered include philosophy of healing and The Body's Way, sensation science, somatic anatomy, Nia movement, and how to work with music to enhance a therapeutic movement experience. The training places specific emphasis on the ethics of healing and compassionate leadership while considering the needs of diverse students, e.g. cancer patients, Parkinson's Disease, trauma recovery or healing post-injury. The course includes topics on business and marketing.
This training is open to all individuals. In order to teach the program, you must be a current Teacher Member and complete the teacher apprentice program.
What people are saying:
"I love your specific approach to moving to heal, using new music, analyzing the moves and offering them in a simple but broken down kind of way is genius.
I also want to say that the training played a role in changing a belief that I had that slowing down or using the chair is not fun, creative , conditioning…blah blah blah. My experience was just the opposite and I’m proud of my capacity to listen to my soul and be guided to your training. I think this work is going to change my life in a profound way. I would really like to come back to Albany and take some MTH classes with you as a guide while Im in the beginning of creating my new classes." Robyn M. LCSW Nia Black Belt
