Interview with Nia Co-founder, Carlos Rosas

Celebrating 25 Years of Nia—A Conversation with a Fitness Pioneer

In 1983, Carlos Rosas and Debbie Rosas created the Nia Technique, an internationally acclaimed “body-mind-spirit movement and lifestyle practice.” They have presented at many leading health conventions, and currently sponsor Inner IDEA, an association of holistic fitness professionals.
