Nia Green Belt Training with Britta von Tagen

Nia Green Belt with Britta von Tagen

November 2nd at 8:00am

The Nia Green Belt focuses entirely on developing and embodying the skills to effectively teach Nia. All belt levels who teach or desire to teach are strongly encouraged to attend this training.

The Nia Promise and Delivering the Nia Experience are phrases we use to express the transformative power of Nia; to a Nia Teacher's ability to deeply move and touch people within the classroom environment. As a teacher, your role is to guide people through a meaningful journey of physical conditioning and self-discovery. Teaching Nia is all about sharing your personal experience – your physical and emotional sensations, visual images and feelings. To do so, you must have a solid understanding of the form, objective curriculum and communication techniques.

Green Belt comprehensively explores all mechanics of delivering the work, including:

  • embodying the choreography
  • cueing
  • creating intentional silences
  • dancing to the music
  • helping people achieve their personal fitness goals

Whether you are a novice or a seasoned teacher, Green Belt will further your teaching skills. New teachers develop confidence, craft and skill by learning and practicing the foundations of teaching. Seasoned teachers refine and deepen their understanding, building on their craft and receiving feedback from peers to deliver the most powerful experience possible.

This training is 5 full days: November 2nd - November 6th, 2018.

Training Investment: 

$599.50 registration fee + $599.50 instruction fee

December 1-7, 2018: Britta Von Tagen's White Belt Training at Move2Center Studio

Move2Center Studio hosts Nia Technique trainer Britta Von Tagen White Belt Intensive

December 1st at 7:00am

West Seattle's Move2Center Studio Is pleased to announce that it is hosting Nia trainer Britta Von Tagen for a White Belt Intensive taking place December 1-7, 2018.

The White Belt Training is a special experience. In pure terms, the training's intent is to help participants embody the foundation of Nia. But what does that mean, exactly?

For many, the training can be a wonderful dive into the realm of self-discovery, inviting you to emerge on the other side with a completely refreshed outlook on life, a new level of confidence and a positive way of relating with others.

It's also the first step on the path to becoming a certified instructor in Nia Technique.

Experiencing this Belt with Britta offers a particularly unique experience, and not only due to her pedigree as the choreographer of two powerful Nia routines, Soul and Dragon. Britta's relationship with the practice is deeply heart-based, and she specializes in conveying information about the practice and principles with clarity and care.

Why take the training at Move2Center?

Move2Center's founders and teachers take great joy and pleasure in creating a magical, comfortable experience for our community. Our studio has two large bathrooms that can be used for changing and freshening up. We look forward to taking extra-special care of our belt trainees.

For Seattle and Western Washington residents, having a training in our area allows the opportunity to head back home in the evening, sleep in your own bed, soak in your tub, order your favorite pizza -- you catch our drift. Belt trainings in other cities are fantastic...but you have to pay for lodging and food.

For those who are heading into Seattle from other cities, however, Move2Center is located steps away from The Grove West Seattle Inn,  a recently restored, well-reviewed and beloved mid-century motor inn. The Grove is reasonably priced, clean and comfortable.

We're also only a couple of blocks away from Chaco Canyon Organic Cafe, serving healthy breakfast, lunch and dinner every day. The studio is within walking distance to Trader Joe's and many great restaurants on California Avenue, featuring everything from some of the city's best sushi to an extraordinary French bakery to, of course, Cupcake Royale.
