The Nia 5 Stages Training
"I am so impressed and excited the Nia 5 Stages Training. It is most assuredly more than a two-day training; it is an incredible personal experience and the educational content is amazing. If you are looking to offer your health seeking clients, students, and members the most innovative practice to self-heal, if you are looking to expand your own somatic education of the human body, if you are seeking your own self-healing, if you want to compliment your Nia FloorPlay cycle, or if you are looking to add to your class offerings, then I highly recommend taking this course."

"Nia 5 Stages is amazing, transformational work. The weekend spent with Debbie blazed a new trail of knowledge for me. I started teaching a Nia 5 stages class after returning to San Antonio, and the community loves it. Nia 5 Stages is another opportunity to grow as belts, as teachers, and also in our personal journey of life!"

"The process of Nia 5 Stages is remarkable and profound. In my experience of teaching through movement I am continually touched by starting with awareness and knowing of how far I will go. The materials are wonderfully done. I particularly enjoyed how I could craft the class in moving from Part 1 to Part 2. My workshop experience has me thinking about Nia in a completely new way as to the breadth and depth of the work; moving way beyond the dance of Nia into the integration of healing, health and fitness. Thank you for your work; I am inspired!"

"For everyone looking to really dive into embodying the wisdom of The Body's Way, the 5 Stages is your answer. As a lover of the body, always interested in learning the how, what, and why, this unique somatic course makes it possible to learn, teach, and get paid to do what you love all at once. I am extremely excited about the learning process I created, which uses a simple class format, with 52 unique lesson plans, each designed to teach you and the student what makes living and moving in the body an amazing sensory experience. The Nia 5 Stages takes teaching to a whole new level, giving you language and body knowledge to turn every class into a rich somatic experience."
