Brown Belt Focus: Sensing and Perceiving Energy | Intent: To live as an energetic being
By the time you reach Brown Belt, the third level of Nia education, you have developed a proficiency in sustaining awareness of your physical body and paying attention to the sensory details of the four realms: physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. This level of training explores the experience of living as energy beings, as every experience of sensation in the body is an energy experience.
Brown Belt Principle 1: The Joy of Movement in the Zone, introduces “The Zone,” a place of no thinking, auniverse unto itself. The Zone is a state of heightened sensation inside and out, from which you can think with the both the logical mind and the intuitive parts of your being. In The Zone, energy fields are tactile and readily available to you; Brown Belt teaches you how to tap into this energy to make positive changes in each of the four realms of your life.

Malia is an authentic Kumu Hula: a recognized hula teacher, officially having graduated after 17 years training from a hula halau (school) of a long and esteemed Hawaiian hula lineage. In over a decade of teaching her own halau, Kumu Malia counts as her students dozens of hula teachers throughout Japan as well as many hula dancers in Hawaii. Fluent in Hawaiian, Kumu Malia frequently composes her own original oli’s (sacred chants). Kumu Malia is the originator of the Sitting Baby Hula program, the choreographer of numerous hulas in both the ancient and modern forms, as well as being the repository of myriad traditional hulas, oli’s and general Hawaiian cultural knowledge. In keeping with her tradition, she is an observant and reverent student of nature and keeper of the land – the ‘aina.
