Nia Teacher Trainer

I saw a sign that read, “Body, Mind, Spirit Workout.” I had not seen the word ‘spirit’ used in any other courses offered. Immediately, my curiosity drew me to take the workshop. It was a Nia workshop, and I clearly recall watching Debbie and Carlos enter the room. Every cell of my being recognized their radiance. They took the stage and did something unheard of at that time in the fitness industry – they invited us to take off our shoes. Those first barefoot seconds of conscious movement had my wounded knees saying, “Ahhhhhhh” as they experienced healing through movement.

Words cannot express the infinite gifts my heart receives from the privilege of sharing the Nia Belts. I travel internationally teaching Nia, and I am passionately in love with what I am privileged to share. I am now a 2nd degree Black Belt.

"What is nia?"

Ask any Nia practitioner to describe Nia and you will get a number of answers. More than just a workout, Nia fills a void where other traditional fitness programs fall short.  A powerful fusion of dance, martial arts, and mindfulness practices, Nia is a holistic movement & wellness practice addressing each aspect of your life - body, mind, and soul.

  • Nia has a class or program for everybody, regardless of age, health or fitness level.

  • Using a system of 52 simple moves, each Nia workout delivers full-body conditioning leaving you energized, mentally clear, and emotionally balanced.

  • Practiced barefoot, Nia’s purpose is to inspire and guide people to listen to the wisdom of the body, choose movement that feels good, and find connection in community.

  • Nia is for every person who desires to discover, explore, unleash, and enhance their individual potential to live a healthy and meaningful life.

Nia is for EveryBody, Nia practitioners come from all walks of life, from different backgrounds and nationalities. They are bound together by a shared vision: creating healthy bodies and lives. There is a place in Nia for anyone who wants to live their best life.

-Debbie Rosas, Nia Founder
