  • Britta von Tagen: White, Green and Blue Belt Trainer:
    I have been passionate about educating humanity to help heal the world through the dance of Nia since 1995. I have been training Nia to teachers since 2002, first in Idaho and now worldwide. I have found over the years of training, that the Nia practice has generated an even stronger intention of Peace on Earth inside me. Not that I have to love or save everyone, but create an positive environment for individuals to be transported while getting a great workout no matter what their age or ability. Nia is an international language, like nature is. It is the language of sensation or words without words, an alchemical formula for magic! Presently, I have combined my 20 years of experience working with children, my degree in Elementary Education, and the depth of Nia, to create a movement-based, educational program for pre-school age children. I will forever continue to share the joy and love of movement with all ages, playfully and energetically! My mantra: I am, therefore I teach”
    Britta leads trainings in the US, Scotland, Australia and Israel –  and this will be her fourth trip back to South Africa (pulled back by her love for the Nia community here and the community’s love of her!)
  • Susan Sloan – White Belt Trainer :
    “I qualified as a Yoga Instructor and started practicing and teaching Reiki Hands-on Healing in 2000; moving on to become a Kahuna Level 6 Massage Therapist over the next 10  years.  I live by the principals of Kahuna Massage, which teach me to live in Aloha ( The joyful sharing of life energy in the present). In 2003,  I was drawn to Nia with the desire to heal my knees and became an Nia Instructor in 2003, opening up Studio Kairos (which means “Timelessness” or “Natural Time”; the 2nd principal of the Nia White Belt-the first level of training). Currently I am a Black Belt Nia Instructor and qualified as a White Belt Trainer in 2011.  I believe my Life Purpose is to bring more awareness into my life, so I can lead myself and others, to find the best way to live in Joy”.
    Susan is South Africa’s resident (and only) Nia White Belt Trainer – having followed her love of the work when becoming one of the pioneer Nia teachers in Gauteng over 10 years ago!
