This Nia mentorship series is for ANY Nia Belt graduate interested in teaching. This is geared toward a community preparation for the Green Belt certification with Winalee Zeeb Feb 14 – 19th, 2016 at Still & Moving Center.
You will find important instructional tips and a huge virtual hug of support and encouragement. Our participants range from Australia to Canada, from Florida to Pennsylvania, 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; and teaching classes of their own.
In this series, you will:
- remember how learn a new Nia routine
- gain solid familiarity with the 52 moves
- practice matching choreographic notes to the 8BC’s
- learn to lead classes through body sensation
- give yourself permission to progress in natural time, your body’s way
- get clarity with your struggles and kudos for your successes in Nia!
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. This is not an abstract study of a movement form. Here we explore how Nia concepts and practices are meaningful to our daily lives.
The series is conducted in person at Still & Moving Center as well as online via GoToMeeting, on which all participants can be seen and heard, live time.
Note about the routine Passion: When you register for the mentorship series as a White Belt Graduate, an online version of the Nia routine Passion we will be sent to you. The hardcopy DVD and CD is available, free, to all participants in the Green Belt training – no one else is currently able to purchase it.
