The Joy of Movement Studio at Chatham Mills

480 Hillsboro St, Pittsboro


Optimize your body and life with the White Belt Training, the first level in Nia's five-belt training series that presents a body-centered approach to health, wellness and fitness. Open to all. Register here.

Words from Kate:
Spend a week focused on “you getting to know your body's needs.” It is a journey worth taking. Fulfill your deepest desires to live a full, vibrant, healthy life. Step out equal parts student & teacher, inspired to share all that you are learning.

Whether for personal growth or to take steps to become a Nia professional, this investment in you will continue to pay dividends throughout your lifetime.

Nia is a physical experience, a workout first, that turns into a lifestyle and for some a profession. It's Physical. It's Dynamic. It's Somatic Education.

Draw in a deep, purposeful breath and imagine yourself as a teacher. A teacher to your kids, your partner, your parents, your co-workers, your friends, your foes, to many.  Modeling principles learned in your Nia Intensive and embodied in your personal Nia practice.
