Nina la Rosa

Nina la Rosa

Since 2007 Nina LaRosa has taught the “user-friendly but industrial strength” approach to mindfulness meditation developed by Buddhist teacher and scholar, Shinzen Young. Shinzen’s pragmatic and scientific approach helped Nina experience a freeing shift in her sense of self and the world and she became inspired to share mindfulness meditation as her life’s work.

In 2012, while working in clinical neuroscience research on mindfulness at University of Vermont, Nina founded a mindfulness meditation training and psychotherapy practice to support people in their meditation and mental health. She continues this work today and specializes in addressing chronic pain, traumatic brain injury, and spiritual emergence challenges. Her heart is most alive when assisting people through sticky spots on the meditative path. Making the dharma accessible and leveraging its potential for healing of systemic injustice also fuels her work.

Nina lives in Burlington, Vermont, and offers her services in-person at Stillpoint Center, Burlington and online. As a mother of two young children, she’s also found the crucible of parenting to be a great way to put mindfulness to the test!
