"Nia inspires me to continue on a personal journey of self-discovery, self actualization and healing. For me, learning is one of the most exciting journeys and being in a body is one of the most poetic and romantic experiences. I thrive on educating, motivating and inspiring people to fall in love with themselves and their bodies. To me, life is my art and my body is the canvas."  – Debbie Rosas Debbie Rosas has been a pioneer and leader in the body-mind fitne

Debbie Rosas has been a pioneer and leader in the body-mind fitness industry since 1976. She has dedicated life to self-healing and self-mastery. Her extensive exploration of dance, martial arts, graphic arts, music, therapy and healing inspired and developed into the creation of the internationally acclaimed body-mind fitness program and lifestyle company, Nia Technique, Inc. Debbie’s work also includes the writing and production of Nia® educational materials and lifestyle products, such as music CDs, DVDs and the NiaWear™ clothing line. Together with creative partner Carlos Rosas, Debbie has co-authored two books: Non-Impact Aerobics and The Nia Technique™, as well as the “Holistic Fitness” section of the AFAA Instructor Training Manual.

Nia brings concepts and forms from eastern and western practices into mainstream fitness classes and has been instrumental in the evolution of the fitness industry. As of August 2013, Nia Technique, Inc. is a thriving business supporting approximately 2,200 Licensed Nia Teachers across 40 countries.

In constant exploration of Nia's philosophy, The Body’s Way, Debbie continues to develop educational curriculum to facilitate optimal health and wellbeing. In addition to the Nia body of work, she has played a key role in developing programs for doctors at The Naturopathic School of Medicine, Shriner’s Hospital’s women and teen departments and the arthritis and autism departments at Oregon Health and Sciences University. Adored by the press, Debbie and Nia have been featured in over 850 publications and numerous television shows worldwide.

My passion is movement. I took two Nia classes at a Spa in California, USA in 1991 and knew instantly that Nia was something I would do for the rest of my life. My degree is in dance and I was dancing professionally in New York City. I felt that with Nia I had found the secret to keeping myself in shape and the tools to teach dancers and non-dancers how to find fitness, freedom, and joy in movement.

My passion is movement. I took two Nia classes at a Spa in California, USA in 1991 and knew instantly that Nia was something I would do for the rest of my life. My degree is in dance and I was dancing professionally in New York City. I felt that with Nia I had found the secret to keeping myself in shape and the tools to teach dancers and non-dancers how to find fitness, freedom, and joy in movement. I am a Nia Teacher and Trainer, a certified personal trainer, certified yoga instructor, Gabrielle Roth 5 Rhythms instructor, and creative movement specialist for kids. I design Nia programs for people with Parkinson's disease and cancer and for schools and health clubs. I also design Corporate Wellness programs. My main focus as a teacher/trainer is to deliver Nia in a way that is fresh, creative and deeply rooted in joy. It is very satisfying to watch someone discover how to move his/her body in a way that is healing, expressive, and unique. The creativity of Nia is what keeps my passion for it alive. I am based in New York City and travel with Nia wherever I am called to teach/train. Come dance with me!
