Sophie Marsh

Nia Teacher Trainer
Brisbane, Queensland, Australia

Australia's first Black Belt teacher and only Nia White Belt Trainer, Sophie has dedicated nearly 2 decades to educating and inspiring people to move, heal and transform through Nia, while collaboratively building a vibrant Nia Australia community. Her passion and Joy are contagious as she connects with people of all ages and walks of life, guiding them to nurture, trust and understand their innate body wisdom as a path to self-love. She shares Nia as both a life-enriching practice and as movement medicine for body, mind, spirit and heart.

To her classes, playshops and trainings Sophie weaves knowledge and experience from self-mastery techniques, somatic psychotherapy, energy healing, conscious sexuality and sacred feminine practices. Her contribution to Nia Technique International as a Trainer has been recognised with awards in 2013 and 2014.
