Through this intensive practice with a group of committed colleagues, you will unleash your creativity, discover an innate freedom of being, gain insights about your past and present, and develop proficiencies in self-expression that are likely to spill over into all aspects of your life. Motion Immersion consists of six weekend workshops and one five-day retreat. There are no pre-requisites for Immersion.

Nina is available to anyone interested in creating a performance work, editing writing, developing skills and confidence in public speaking and presentations, enhancing creative expression … whatever your project or goal may be, Nina will help you see it through.

Refund Policy

Deposits for workshops and classes are refundable in full (less 15% processing fee) if you cancel at least one week before the start date. After that, the deposit is not refundable but you may apply it to any Motion Theater workshop within one year (less 15% processing fee). Once the class series begins, refunds are not available unless you suffer an extreme medical emergency or family emergency. In that case, the cost of the classes you have already taken will be deducted from the total you have paid, and the balance less 15% processing fee will be applied towards credit for another Motion class. This credit expires after one year if not utilized.
