The White Belt is a week of body nourishment, community, fun, learning and transformation. I now understand why it was so difficult to explain to others what Nia was, it has so many layers! Sophie Marsh is an incredible human and inspirational trainer. I felt like the entire week was designed specifically for ME!

This training was one of the most inspiring journeys of my life.

White Belt Graduate

I thought I was coming just to learn about Nia. What I received was so much more. Every principle helped me come back into my body and myself. I now have a clearer sense of my life purpose and how to have more awareness and Joy every day. I met an amazing community of authentic, fun, and loving people. I didn’t want it to end.

Zanthe Gneist

White Belt Graduate

It is difficult to describe how much joy I received from being with and relating to these magnificent women for a week of music, movement, magic, and friendship! I learnt to truly listen to my body and to trust the sensations I experienced. In these strange and unsettling times, I would lovingly suggest to consider stepping into this precious space with Sophie Marsh. You will feel nourished, invigorated, energised and ready to return home with new skills, knowledge, and resilience for the road ahead

Carol Greenwood

White Belt Graduate

During the White Belt, I experienced a real calming of my nervous system; much greater connection to myself, like I was landing back in my body; and many juicy and joyful moments.   I’ve done plenty of workshops, but this is the best thing I’ve done for myself in a long time!

Robyn Robinson

White Belt Graduate

The training exceeded all my expectations. Accepting and loving ‘ME’, even the parts I have rejected or judged in the past, is my biggest take away
