Winalee Zeeb

I began teaching in the fitness industry in 1981. I had a passion for exercise, and teaching aquatics courses, water exercise and aerobics filled that passion. These traditional fitness practices and my unconscious movement patterning ultimately led me to exhaustion, burnout, and physical pain. In 1984, I severely injured both my knees. I had numbed myself to my body’s voice of pain and I required surgery.

In July of 1991, I was on the edge of quitting teaching. I attended the IDEA Fitness Conference and I saw a sign that read, “Body, Mind, Spirit Workout.” I had not seen the word ‘spirit’ used in any other courses offered. Immediately, my curiosity drew me to take the workshop. It was a Nia workshop, and I clearly recall watching Debbie and Carlos enter the room. Every cell of my being recognized their radiance. They took the stage and did something unheard of at that time in the fitness industry – they invited us to take off our shoes. Those first barefoot seconds of conscious movement had my wounded knees saying, “Ahhhhhhh” as they experienced healing through movement. After tearfully dancing a profound healing awakening, I registered for their next White Belt Intensive. I sensed a deep knowing within myself that Nia had much to teach me. I eagerly attended the Blue, Brown, Black, and First Degree Black Belt trainings in succession.

In February of 1997, after years of practicing Nia and many hours of teaching, I was blessed with the honor of becoming a Nia Trainer. Words cannot express the infinite gifts my heart receives from the privilege of sharing the Nia Belts. I travel internationally teaching Nia, and I am passionately in love with what I am privileged to share. I sing professionally. I am a motivational keynote speaker, and a yoga teacher. On February 14, 2009, I opened Heartdance Studio – a magical space. The teachings of Nia have brought me my ability to balance all I am passionate about, and I am so very grateful.

I am honored to joyfully dance in the sea of life with all of you!

“My ideal? to contribute to you personalizing your Nia journey, help dreams come true, encourage you to be the best you can be and live a glorious life.” – Helen Terry

Spend time around Helen and you will learn something, receive inspiration, and garner support for your dreams and desires (not to mention be highly entertained by her loving sense of humor and English-Texan accent, which many mistake for Australian.) “I’m passionate about moving people physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. I bring people together and inspire them, at my Studio, the Ranch and around the world. That turns me on.”

Helen has been helping people love their bodies and lives through Nia Technique since 1993. She immigrated to the US in 1990, as an International Teaching Fellow. Helen has a Royal Society of Arts Certification in Exercise to Music, B. Ed. (Hons) Physical Education, M.Ed. Exercise Physiology. She is a Certified Body Ecologist and Dance Therapy Specialist.

Recognized by Origins Magazine as a “Top Inspirer in Texas”, Helen is multi-talented with a magical formula. She combines experience and knowledge with determination and faith, to consciously create and bring ideas to life. Helen founded NiaMoves Houston in 1996, a successful Nia fitness studio in Houston, which she sold in 2016. Helen now co-owns and runs Soma Ranch Retreat, Montgomery, Texas with her husband Joe.

Helen has a special, and very effective, way of catering to the unique needs of each individual. She helps folks feel great while giving them the skills they need. When she’s not leading Nia trainings worldwide, you’ll find Helen at Soma Ranch feeding the rescued donkeys, checking in with her daughter, Liliana (who’s studying Computer Science/Linguistics at University of Texas) ; enjoying a kombucha tea on the porch with her awesome “home-support” husband, Joe; and being corralled by their Border Collie, Phelps.

“Helen Terry is one of the best teachers, mothers, and trainers, and because of her mastery in Nia and in her ability to build and create a successful personal and professional life she was one of the first two trainers chosen to step into the role of Blue Belt trainer!” Debbie Rosas

Unlock energy and stimulate multidimensional movement creativity with Nia FreeDance. Nia Black Belt Krista Hiser teaches Nia FreeDance every Wednesday at 7pm, with a monthly FRIDAY FREEDANCE version to celebrate and develop Oahu’s conscious dance community.

Cultivate life force energy though this 60 minute conscious dance experience of music, movement, and magic. Nia FreeDance is lightly guided through the realms of physical body, mental body, emotional body, and your spirit, to intentionally craft multi-dimensional creativity. Benefits include enhanced physical conditioning, self-healing, deep listening, and emotional self-awareness.

Nia Black Belt Krista Hiser guides Nia FreeDance through carefully crafted soundscapes, vocal cuing, witnessing, modeling, and demonstrating the tools and stages of the Nia FreeDance practice. Fans of ecstatic dance will gain new insights, and anyone new to conscious dance will find practical tips to unlock their movement creativity. No experience in anything is required.

After the dance, we share experiences and insights to reflect on the practice. Participants have shared that:

“I feel like I can really just be me.”
“It’s like I’m resetting my aura every week.”
“I thought I was tired but I discovered new energy.”
“I revisited a memory and got a new perspective.”
“I love just listening to the music. It’s an experience I couldn’t create for myself.”

“In my experience, Nia FreeDance Technique®️ dynamically and organically utilizes my own inner knowing. I stay present through seven stages that integrate and realign my physical, emotional, mental and spiritual bodies. Nia FreeDance is more than just joy of movement, it is a freeing architecture that enhances my self-healing and a deep therapeutic relationship with myself.  Being present creates an auric shift to align with my highest Self. Nia FreeDance helps unlock my greatest potentials.” – Lani Kwon

 

Krista Hiser

When I stepped into my first Nia class, I thought “this is it!” It was like a cool dance party, except it was 9 am, and in a gym. I could get fit, have fun, and wear cool pants! For me, Nia is the ultimate in efficiency: in one hour, I get a physical workout, a mental re-set, an emotional experience through music, and an energizing connection to my sacred purpose on the planet. It’s a workout, a dance party with friends, and a therapy session wrapped into one amazing hour! Nia is THE 21st century fitness modality! In my classes, I create an energetic, athletic experience for every-BODY, grounded in the joy of movement, clarity of the 52 moves, freedance, and luxurious floorplay and relaxation. My style is athletic, creative, and zany. I teach Nia from my heart and I’m usually surprised at what comes out. I love to play with the spirit and energy of the group – each class is a unique co-creation that will never happen again! I am committed to Nia as a personal practice, and I teach it as a cumulative subject of inquiry. You can just show up to work out and break a sweat, but if you really choose Nia, my classes can be a catalyst transformative change. I am here to empower each participant to love their body and their life, and to impact our community and the world by doing whatever it is they do, and doing it better! At Still and Moving, the Athletic Nia class is 15 minutes longer, allowing a sustained cardio peak and additional time for conditioning floorplay and strength work. In Nia, “Athletic” refers to options that can leave the ground with a jump, or press into the floor with a push up. I teach Athletic Nia by modeling the edge of Nia choreography and adding improvisational bursts of energy and freedance. But the words you will hear most out of my mouth are: “you choose,” and “here’s an option,” making even my most athletic class accessible and inspiring for all.

45 hours of training

Open to: all Nia Belts, all levels

Register: here. 

For more information, you can email Winalee directly:  winalee@nianow.com

Focus: Music-Movement-Magic

Intent: To condition the central nervous system

This 5-day training comprehensively helps you to transform the White Belt principles into real, on-the-dancefloor teaching skills with clarity.

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.

 

We journey into the Nia’s 5 Core Competencies for increased skills & knowledge with:

  1. Nia’s Philosophy – The Body’s Way and the study of the Body’s inherent wisdom
  2.  Science – the study of  awareness and vitality in order to create knowledge for a healthy body and lifestyle to live as a sacred athlete into your greatest potential.
  3.  Anatomy – the study of the body parts and system for body literacy.
  4.  Movement – the study of healthy potential to use movement to transform the body.
  5.  Music – the study of sound, health and expression.  Enhancing our connection to the language of sound.

We clarify the 13 Nia White Belt Principles so you embody the skill to confidently teach Nia.

All unfolds in a relaxed, loving, and encouraging environment with generative feedback to grow and embody teaching tools.

About the Nia Green Belt

Green Belt is an optional training, which 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 and 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.

The Green Belt training includes a pre-training course based on the 13 White Belt principles. As part of the training, you will learn and work with the routine, Wild.
