Nia Triads

Posted by terrepruitt on March 23, 2010

If you are going to get deeper into Nia–taking it further than a workout and even further than a practice, if you are going to attend a Nia Intensive, you will be introduced to the triads.  Nia has a method of grouping things together in threes to assist in the learning of the information.  I think that it is a pretty good tool to use.  It helps organize things into little manageable packets.

Each principle in the Nia White Belt has a triad.  Some triads have three additional triads to help further explain the principle.  It is all packaged so wonderfully I just love it.

I have posts about Principle #2 Natural Time and the Movement Forms.  Here is an example of what the Art Forms Triad may look like.   Each art form has three movement forms.

Now, honestly, participating in a Nia Intensive is so delicious I don’t want to take away from all that you will be experiencing so this does not have all the information that you would see if you were to attend an intensive.  With the principles and points on a triad there are usually catch phrases and other things to assist you in learning.  This is just an somewhat striped down version so that you can have an idea of what I am talking about.

Also, with all of my talk and posts and tweets and pages about Nia, I am wanting to share with you a glimpse of the richness that is Nia.  There is a lot of knowledge that Debbie and Carlos want to share and they have created or commissioned to be created some wonderful and beautiful tools in order for anyone who wants to learn can use.

    Wow Terre…I just love this. I love triads. I find that creating a triad for ANYTHING I do…any goal or intention I have…really keeps me focused and allows me to see how the creative cycle works.

    Thanks for posting this my dear. Your passion for Nia moves me. I love reading your blogs.

    With love,
    Jill

    • I love triads too, at least Nia ones. I never thought to use them for myself in something else. Duh? Here I am saying what a great learning/teaching TOOL it is and I don’t even take the tool to use. Duh! Thank you for showing me that!

      This is such a simple one and I would love to share more, but I don’t want to give away all the good stuff! 😉

      Thank you for stopping by and commenting. I love having NiaChick on my blog!!

      XOXO to you!
