Nia and Horses® White Belt Training, developed by Nia Faculty Trainer and equestrian educator, Randee Fox is for every body 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 White Belt Training. This training is the prerequisite you will need to license as a classic Nia teacher and/or a Nia and Horses® teacher - bringing Nia to equestrians and horse lovers.

"Boot Scootin' Nia" experience
at AQHA's Region 1 conference at Thunderbird Horse Park,
Langley British Columbia.
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.

Feed your creative appetite and immerse yourself into the week-long Nia and Horses® White Belt 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® White Belt 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® White Belt 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.
