Enhance your ability to learn and teach Nia routines!
Prerequisite: Nia White Belt or higher
The focus of the routine Joy, by Ann Christiansen, is to sense life force energy, experience Joy! The intent is to sustain and increase the sensation of Joy, tweaking as needed, to create sustainability in the body.
Renée teaches you tools to unpack each song of a Nia routine, musically and choreographically. She shares insights from her 15 years of Nia practice and teaching, including life lessons from both of Nia’s founders, Debbie Rosas and Carlos Rosas.
And we’ll delve into the 5 principles of the Body’s Way, a signature feature of the Nia practice. Using the Body’s Way, Renée carefully models and explains body positioning, song by song, to ensure ease and safety of movement.
Here we go beyond studying movement sequences and explore how Nia practices are meaningful to our daily lives. We’ll learn to recognize in ourselves the 4 realms of the Nia practice: Body, Mind, Emotions & Spirit: the uniqueness that is you!
You will find in this mentorship program important instructional tips and a huge virtual hug of support and encouragement. Our participants can range from Japan to Canada, from Georgia to Wyoming, and of course Hawaii.
The bonds of fellowship and interconnectedness that you will share with your fellow mentees and mentors are almost palpable. Participants in former mentorships series have evolved into teaching single songs as guest instructors; teaching partial or whole classes as subs; to teaching classes of their own.
We enjoy time for check-in and sharing our individual Nia practices, time for experimenting with our Nia toolbox of skills, time for decoding the music, and time for moving with the music.
$130 for the 13 week Series. Normal drop-in rates of $17 paying online or $20 paying in person will apply for those who can only attend the parts of the series.

“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.
