  • Britta von Tagen - White, Blue and Green Belt Trainer:

Britta , from Idaho in the US, grew up near the source of Nia in Portland, Oregon where she took her first Nia class taught by the creators of Nia, Debbie Rosas and Carlos Rosas. Inspired by this unique freedom of movement combined with mental focus, she received her White Belt in Nia and started teaching in 1995. While pursuing her Elementary Education degree at The University of Idaho, Britta also taught Nia for the University’s PE department. Upon completion of  her Elementary Education degree, Britta trained a s Black Belt in Nia, and combined Nia and working with children, creating a multi-age movement and brain development center in Sun Valley, Idaho where movement and education come together for all ages. Britta is the leading specialist on Nia for Kids and is creating this new specialty training programme for Nia HQ. Britta is an international trainer, having led belts in the USA, South Africa, Scotland and Australia.

“Nia is my life! I apply Nia to all ages and all walks of life. I teach Nia to ages 2 to 90 and Nia in the water! Nia has always been a conduit for me as an educational crusader! I am. Therefore I teach”.

  • 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”.
