Nia and Horses® Special Application Training, developed by Nia Faculty Trainer and equestrian educator, Randee Fox is for Nia White Belt graduates and above wanting to deepen their Nia practice, both dancing in the studio, in nature and with horses. Whether you are drawn to horses (no horse experience necessary) or are an equestrian, or an equestrian educator, you will resonate with this special Nia Special Application Training. 

The prerequisite for this training is the Nia White Belt Training. This training is the prerequisite you will need to license as a Nia and Horses® teacher - bringing Nia to equestrians and horse lovers.

All of Nia’s 13 White Belt Principles are applicable and synchronous to movement with horses, enhancing sensory IQ, physical awareness, body language and energetic communication with horses.

Because it is in a horse’s nature to ‘mirror’ our movement and energy bodies, their feedback can inform us of our leadership qualities, teaching styles and ability to connect to our own sensations moment-to-moment. Nia and Horses® Special Application Training will give you new tools to greater self awareness, movement habits and how you present yourself as a leader in the world.
If you are wanting to deepen your Nia practice or are an active equestrian or equestrian educator, Nia and Horses® Special Application will open opportunities for you to create a more finely-tuned sense of aesthetic, rhythm by offering a wide range of physical, expressive movement and musical enhancement tools.
White Belt Trainees 'creating the space' together outside on the ranch with the ranch's dog, Lil'Ley. This is a ritual that is taught during the White Belt Training, done twice daily. It is a time for stillness, a time to give honor to ourselves, our classmates, our teacher, the space and the practice of Nia, helping us settle and remove all distractions.
Feed your creative appetite and immerse yourself into the week-long Nia and Horses® Special Application Training and retreat, grounded in nature, harmony, ease and physical sensation at The Blue Heron Ranch.
At Blue Heron Ranch, White Belt Trainees have the opportunity to learn
some of the principles outside including exploring choreography
on soft grass. 


Nia and Horses® Special Application Training also offers opportunities for you to somatically connect more deeply your nature, your ‘animal self’. Sessions are taken in a beautiful light-filled 1,500 square foot dance studio, in the horse arena with horses, on wooded trails, under trees, and on hillsides with soft beds of grass while experiencing your body’s nature in nature. Nia and Horses® Special Application Training is fun, filled with adventure and surprise.
Blue Heron Ranch Studio is an inspirational movement space with sprung wood floors, high ceilings, surrounded by nature, horse pastures and filled with light - a perfect place to take your Nia and Horses® White Belt Training.
