Nia 1st Degree Black Belt Teacher

about Karen

Karen Firebaugh, a licensed Nia® 1st Degree Black Belt Teacher, fell in love with Nia in 2012 before she even danced a step! She's a Nia training-nerd, hooked on Spotify and creating playlists, and loves sharing this powerful movement practice--seems like her personal motto is "Have Nia, Will Travel." Karen weaves together her specialties of Nia FreeDance, Nia Moving to Heal, and Classic Nia to deliver the creative expression of dance, the power of martial arts, and the functional movement of the healing arts--Your Body's Way. Karen also leads Nia FreeDance experiences and teaches Nia Moving to Heal. Karen is an Advocate with doTERRA Essential Wellness and somehow essential oils always find their way into her classes.

Karen teaches in Triangle Nia Jams and subs regularly at the Joy of Movement in Pittsboro. She teaches pop-up classes and workshops in Greensboro, Sewanee TN and Belfast ME. Karen will bring Nia to YOU at your place or hers.

She is also Triangle Nia’s web weaver, so contact Karen with feedback on the website, with RAVES about Nia and your teacher, or questions.

Contact Karen at and find out more at and at her doTERRA site.
