Train with Me

Combining dance, martial arts and mindfulness, Nia is a holistic fitness practice that addresses each aspect of your life - body, mind and soul. The foundation of Nia trainings is the White Belt Training, which focuses on physical sensation and body awareness. Each successive training (Green, Blue, Brown, and Black Belt) adds a new focus to develop your holistic knowledge of the body, enhance your fitness practice and expand your movement creativity. Join me in a training and learn how to tune into your body’s innate wisdom!

Taking a training or class from Britta von Tagen is a truly magical experience. As a trainer, Britta powerfully blends the joy of child-like play and exploration with the intensity and focus of a master who has spent a life-time dedicated to her craft. She enlists the “help” of fantastical and magical “characters” who join the training to lead trainees on a magical journey into deeper relationship with themselves. As a teacher, Britta invites her students to access and experience the deepest, strongest, most powerful aspects of themselves and bring them to light. I can say that, personally, it has been a true honor and privilege to study with Britta through belts and workshops and classes. My relationship with Nia has deepened profoundly because her teaching and guidance.
