By the time you reach Brown Belt, the third level of Nia education, you have developed a proficiency in sustaining awareness of your physical body and paying attention to the sensory details of the four realms: physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. This level of training explores the experience of living as energy beings, as every experience of sensation in the body is an energy experience.

Brown Belt Principle 1: The Joy of Movement in the Zone, introduces "The Zone," a place of no thinking, a universe unto itself. The Zone is a state of heightened sensation inside and out, from which you can think with the both the logical mind and the intuitive parts of your being. In The Zone, energy fields are tactile and readily available to you; Brown Belt teaches you how to tap into this energy to make positive changes in each of the four realms of your life.

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.
