Sophie Marsh

Nia Teacher Trainer
, Queensland, Australia

Sophie Marsh is an inspirational teacher, community builder and movement-based life coach. She was the first Australian Nia Black Belt and is Australia’s only Nia White Belt Trainer. Sophie holds a welcoming and safe space for people to creatively explore and express their potential through the Joy of movement. Her passion is sharing Nia as movement medicine for healing and enlivening the body, mind, spirit and heart. 

In her own journey, practicing Nia has brought self-love and self-knowing, and a profound respect and gratitude for The Body's Way. Sophie integrates over 20 years studying and sharing self-mastery techniques, holistic movement, energy healing and sensuous embodiment. She connects people of all ages, backgrounds and fitness levels in her Nia classes, playshops, retreats and White Belt trainings around Australia and beyond.

Sophie also offers one-on-one sessions, weekly mentoring calls, and community-based classes to diverse populations including Women's WellBeing Association, Brisbane City Council GOLD program, Micah, Mental Health Association of Qld, Harmony Place, Diversicare, Joining Hands, Cathay Home & Aged care, Commonwealth Respite, A Place to Belong, Inala Job Seekers, TAFE (ESL) students, Griffith University (Midwifery) students, ARAFMI (mental health carers), and students at both State and Private High Schools.

"For people like me who had previously lived from their ‘head’, Nia offers a path to the 'Self' like no other.  Nia encourages inner knowing, grounded presence and trust in the body through awareness and choice. And that is where the power is. That is where the healing comes. 

“Nia's blend of cutting-edge science with ancient wisdom taps us into our innate somatic (body-centred) intelligence. There is something magical and therapeutic that happens in the dance that invites people to learn, embody and share in meaningful ways. Nia brings amazing people together. I feel excited and blessed to be part the international Nia training faculty and a thriving Nia Australia community."
