The Nia White Belt @CMH! A rare opportunity in December.


Britta vonTagen says a few words about The White Belt and what you can expect from taking it.



We’re so pleased that Nia trainer Britta Von Tagen is returning to The Center for Movement for a White Belt Intensive over two weekends in December: the 8th, 9th and 10th, and the 15th, 16th and 17th.

The White Belt is a special experience.  And If the desire is in you, we highly encourage you to take this White Belt with Britta for very concrete reasons.

One, it’s over two weekends. Most Belt trainings are a solid week, requiring some to expend several days of vacation time. And it’s worth it to do that…but wouldn’t you rather keep your time off?

Two, it’s here in Seattle…which means if you live in the area, you can head back home in the evening, sleep in your own bed, soak in your tub, order your favorite pizza — you catch my drift. Belt trainings in other cities are fantastic…but you have to pay for lodging and food.

Three, and this is a big one: This will be the final Belt training to be held at The Center for Movement & Healing. CM&H is transitioning into  Limber Yoga in Jan. 2018, and there will not be space available in the schedule for the multiple hours the trainings need.

Please register by November 8 to secure a slot for this incredible opportunity. Questions? Feel free to ask me or Ann Nicolaysen, or read more about the White Belt by clicking here.

New Class: Pilates With Liz

Liz Dilley - Pilates with LizHappy New Year! Starting Monday, January 9th at 5:15 PM, classical Pilates instructor Liz Dilley (PilatesWithLiz.com), will begin an ongoing weekly Pilates Mat class. Join her for a 55 minute class with an emphasis on alignment, safety and repatterining. This is a fundamentals class that challenges everyone from the seasoned mover to the new discoverer. We will focus on the Pilates fundamentals: Breath, Concentration, Control, Centering, Flow and Precision.

Pilates is a beautiful way to alleviate pain from musculature imbalances in the body while strengthening and lengthening. Working the mind body connection is a proven way to not only improve brain functionality and sharpen the mind, but also, similar to mediation, improve mood, memory and relieve stress. One of Liz’s constant goals while teaching is for her clients to leave her feeling longer, stronger, more balanced and hopefully in a lighter mood.

Liz Dilley grew up on Vashon Island, and danced in London, New York and Seattle. Most recently she was living in the five burrows of New York City, where she received her full Pilates Certification from Core Pilates NYC, a school based in Romana Kryzanowska teachings. She was in New York for 12 years pursuing a performing career. First as a contemporary dancer and then as an actor. She found Pilates while healing from a shoulder injury. Pilates did more for her than any other form of movement. She found her dancing was stronger and more supported when working with Pilates. Like many others Pilates has not only changed her dancing, but also her day to day life and how she feels in the world. She has been teaching Pilates since 2013.

Liz is very excited to be a part of the collection of dedicated teachers at the Center For Movement And Healing and is looking forward to meeting more of the wonderful clientele.
