If you love Nia and think, “Gee, why isn’t anyone teaching this great class to kids?!?” – wonder no longer! Britta von Tagen has been doing just that for YEARS! As youngest person to have been put on the original Nia Training faculty, maybe she just naturally resonates to the kids!
This 12 hour workshop takes place Friday – Sunday, the 27th, 28th and 29th of July, for 4 hours a day.
Each session of workshop will start with one hour of Britta teaching Nia to kids of various age groups. The next three hours each day will consist of workshop time in which attendees process what the teaching they’ve watched Britta do. Britta will provide tips for multi-age lesson plans, classroom management and suggest guidelines for successful relationships and marketing to parents / clients.
At the end of the workshop, you will be given a Certificate of Completion from Still & Moving Center. Even though Still & Moving is not authorized to say that someone is officially qualified to teach Nia to children, the Certificate of Completion of the Teaching Nia to Kids Workshop will be a nice addition to your professional portfolio!

Britta von Tagen grew up near the source of Nia in Portland, Oregon where she took her first Nia class taught by the creators of Nia, Debbie and Carlos Rosas. Inspired by this unique freedom of movement combined with mental focus, Britta 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. Britta was the first Nia teacher in the state of Idaho and very much a pioneer. Once she completed her education and received her Black Belt in Nia, she decided to combine working with children in the traditional sense with The Nia Technique. She currently travels internationally teaching NIA for both adults and children.
