Susan Tate

Susan Tate discovered Nia in 1997 while she was the Director of Health Promotion and assistant professor in the School of Medicine at the University of Virginia. A certified black belt Nia instructor, and Nia Five Stages of Self-Healing instructor, Susan completed all of her trainings with The Nia Technique co-creators Debbie Rosas and Carlos Rosas and has been teaching since 1999. She teaches Nia internationally and most recently presented her signature workshop, Igniting the Power of the Pelvis Nia, in Seattle, Hawaii, Belgium, New York City, Washington DC, and Toronto.

Note from Susan: As of June 12, 2016, I will not be teaching weekly classes in the Seattle area. My plan is to begin teaching locally again in November. I will be teaching classes and workshop across the United States and in Europe. Please come and dance with me!
