Hang out with Nia belts (White, Green, Blue, Brown & Black Belts) and interested Nia students, digging a little deeper into understanding the body. Each month, Nia Black Belt Krista Hiser will share with us highlights of one topic from Becoming a Sensation Scientist, a monthly program by Nia’s co-founder Debbie Rosas. Exploring The Body’s Way, Debbie takes us through the anatomy and sensations of the skeletal system and body processes.
Immediately before this Education session, you can take Renée Tillotson’s 6:00 pm Nia class in which you will move the topic for the evening. After the Education session, participants may choose to share snacks or go for dinner.
