Covid-19 statement: 07 July 2022  update 

For 1-1 sessions I continue to focus on maintaining as safe an environment as possible for all. Therefore, I am still Lateral Flow testing twice weekly. I wear a mask, sanitize surfaces and hands and space out appointments.. My workspace is well-ventilated. I would cancel if at all unwell. I am asking all 1-1 clients to wear a mask, sanitize hands, and cancel if at all unwell. This is documented here>, I also do forehead temperature checks. All with the aim of maintaining as safe an environment for all who attend.

For classes, no mask is required but participants are expected to be self-responsible, sanitize hands, and not attend if even slightly unwell.

 

From someone who came saying "My back needs loosening and straightening if possible"

"Dear Nikhila, I want to report back to you on my progress. The day after my last session I had to alter the mirror in my car to move it upwards to my new height. Yesterday, I had to go to the dentist - I found it such a better experience as I could sit in the chair comfortably. My head no longer feels as if it is coming off when I have to lie flat. I can also now lie on the floor without any books and am delighted. Thank you so much for your help. It is hard to describe to anyone else how Feldenkrais works as the movements in the session feel so small compared to the results. Best wishes, JC".

 

"I am finding the work deeply interesting on all levels - physical, emotional and mental. And, very relaxing. I experience Feldenkrais as a way of 'moving beyond', of 'unlimiting the limited self' - Exploring my mind body connections at the gentle pace of weekly classes I find that the lessons continue a path of mindfulness that I trust.  My nervous system has learned to relax and let me take risks.  The ground becomes safe. " Sarah C

Testimonials

"After weeks of stiff neck and shoulder pain I decided to try a 1 - 1 session by Zoom with Nikhila. I used to think the effect of 1 - 1 was all in Nikhila's hands which of course is partly true but I realise now that’s not the full story, it’s in something beyond the hands. My neck has released and the shoulder pain almost completely gone. As Nikhila guided me in tiny movements which were targeting the deeper layers of my problem I experienced not only the stiff joints and muscles relaxing but also the underlying emotional tensions releasing that had caused the problem in the first place. She guided me to work on how I was holding jaw, breath, even my tongue stiff as well as working directly on spine and neck/shoulders. I'm so grateful that it’s possible to continue sessions with Nikhila 1 - 1 in this period by Zoom as the world situation seems to amplify body tension so being able to have my own personal mind-body patterns disentangled week by week now is a more precious gift than ever!" E.F.

"I have found the classes very supportive and yes have given me structure but also have managed to help me be more balanced. There have been so many difficult days and the classes have helped me drop into myself and out of the madness!! The impact on my nervous system has been something I have longed for!!" T.HP

 

"Classes with you teaching have been a constant support to my life. They energise me in very subtle (and not so subtle!) ways - and enhance and help me maintain flexibility in mind and body. Often challenging, somehow the classes and your constant reassuring, gentle-but-firm, presence help reassure me that the world is OK! Rose B.

 

"I look back over almost 12 years (eek!) since we met and it's hard to believe how far I have progressed in spite of years of growing older! I enjoy taking lessons as a practice of staying present to the voice and what I can feel - all quite new. And now my husband is benefitting so much as well. Thank you!" J.A.

 

Since taking your classes and workshops I’m far more relaxed in my approach to any physical effort and! I’ve not need to go see an osteopath in nearly 2 years now after a history of regular treatments (((((-:  Muriel S.
