In a Joy-filled cell-abration of life in a body and in community, we dance in a smooth-moving, varied, spirited routine. With strong yoga, dance and martial arts elements, Cell-ebrate fulfills the the Nia promise of providing us with plenty of movement variety. Giving voice helps to vibrate Joy right into our bodies’ cells! Routine choreographer Adelle Brewer gives crisp, clear structure as well as time to play, dance, and ‘cell-ebrate’!
As your Mentor, Renée Tillotson will facilitate a Nia-Life-Spirit check-in before every session, finding deep relevance to our daily lives as “Spirit clothed in flesh”, as Debbie Rosas likes to talk about our experience in a sacred body. We connect Nia concepts into the theme for the week in the Still & Moving Center almanac, and we learn to set a focus and intent for teaching.
Delving into the routine, we explore the “katas” – movement patterns – that make up each song, and how they fit with the music. We unpack each move, showing you ways to approach each move safely and simply, as well as more energetically intense variations.
BENEFITS OF MENTORSHIP

“I’m grateful to Renée and her mentorship program, and the participants from around the world. We dive deep into all aspects of Nia with our mind, body, emotions and spirit. It is healing, supportive, inspirational and truly transformative. I found my Nia teaching wings in this program and I continue to grow each week. Thanks Renée.”
– Lorna Moglia, White & Green Belt from California.
“The Nia Mentorship Series that I’ve attended online with Still & Moving Center has been such a great opportunity for me to stay “connected” to my Nia practice and Nia community in a way I could not have imagined when I signed up. The experience, love and appreciation of Nia that Renée, Nancy and others that have shared in the mentoring of this class and what they bring to the table and the dance floor is incredible!
Learning a new routine with the class, reviewing and diving deeper into the Nia principles and practices has been such a great learning opportunity for me.Through this Mentorship Series experience I continue to learn and grow in my confidence and ability to share Nia as a newer teacher as well as my own personal Nia practice.
I have also improved immensely the ability to put into practice my learnings as I draw from the “well” of Nia and “dance through life” in my own mind, body spirit experiences of each day.”
– Mikelle Ivers, Nia White, Green & Blue Belt from Wyoming.
