Nia Blue Belt Intensive

Nia Blue Belt Training

When: February 4-10, 2023

Focus: Art of Communication

Intent: To create intimacy through somatic relationships

Blue Belt, the second level of Nia education, explores how to create healthy relationships through body-centered communication. This intensive introduces the next set of 13 Nia principles, which focus on the 4 realms of body, mind, emotions and spirit. While the White Belt curriculum focuses entirely on awareness of physical sensation, Blue Belt applies these skills to explore internal sensations as perceived through – but distinct from – physical sensations in the body.

Blue Belt Principle #1

The Joy of Being in Relationship, integrates the sensation of Joy with the awareness that Joy is something outside the self, which we can invite into our physical experience. As a result, we begin to deepen our ability to listen with clarity and sustain awareness of details outside our body.

Kelle as an Educator/Trainer

Kelle is a unique teacher trainer. From her years of being a Rolfer and Rolf Movement Therapist, she brings a rich understanding of the human form and an ‘integrationist’ approach to looking at, sensing and moving the body. Her classes are athletic and undeniably packed with power, yet her years of work in the Healing Arts bring depth, compassion and choice into every move, making the class experience deep, yet intuitive. Kelle teaches from The Body’s Way perspective, encouraging students to ‘Know Thyself’ in order to become a great healer themselves and to all. Beginner’s mind is a touchstone in Kelle’s trainings, as she brings a sense of curiosity and wonder for being alive. Spontaneity, humor and an undying love for the work of Nia are a few of the unique gifts she shares with her students.

From Kelle Rae Oien

“As a trained and certified Rolfer and Rolf Movement Practitioner, I have discovered how to get in, move and successfully thrive in my body and my profession with The Nia Technique. How? I use my body and movement as medicine. I invite you to join me in a week dedicated to blending the concepts of Nia and the art of sensation. The Nia White Belt Intensive Training is designed specifically for anyone desiring to add movement tools of body/mind/emotions/spirit into their lives. I love sharing my ‘integrative’ perspective of the body and teaching new ways of creating systemic health and wellness by synthesizing anatomy, movement, somatics and therapeutics. You’ll learn practical body and life movement tools, how to enhance your personal enjoyment of movement, and how to use movement to enhance getting in, and living in your body. I hope you’ll join me in a training, workshop or class!”
