Learn to Teach Nia with Nia Creator Debbie Rosas!

Duration: 3 days (22.5 hours) Price: $599


Join Debbie Rosas, Nia Creator, for an amazing 3-day experiential immersion focused on  body-centered Nia teaching skills.

Listening to the voice of sensation is the focus of the 3-day training. Sensation is your guide to understanding the developmental processes that support you in learning and sharing a Nia routine loose-but-tight.

Novice Nia teachers, you will get an invaluable opportunity to learn the specific skills you need to get on the dance floor through personalized coaching by Debbie Rosas. Advanced Nia teachers, this training will give you methods to refine your teaching style and enhance your embodiment of the Art of Sensation.

During the immersion you will work with the sensation of each White Belt principle as a map to practice somatic leadership skills. Learn how to apply this sensory knowledge and consciously refine your teaching skills in context with the 7 Cycle class format using the routine Sanjana as the developmental learning laboratory.
