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 about the Nia Moving to Heal online program with Casey:
1.I loved having the course be 2 hours a week for 7 weeks. I feel that I was truly able to digest what we were learning and apply it during the week in between sessions. I definitely think that the time it took to complete this course has mattered in my receiving such rewards from it. Mia Thayer Nia Black Belt
2. I gained “permission” to be creative in adapting the 52 Moves and I gained a deeper joy in seated classes as well as classes at a slower speed. Slowing down and adapting and simplifying the routines made me more aware and respectful of my body choosing joy at a deeper level.
It gave me more mental focus too, and attention to the how I move the moves so that I can transmit them with more clarity and attention to the details.
I learned to be more coherent to a focus and stay longer in its exploration in many creative ways.

3. Casey is truly a master “giver”, she is effervescent, positive and inspirational, I am so looking forward to meeting her in person one of these fine days. Her journey in the healing profession has been vast and profound, I have loved listening to her life experiences.
