Recordings are usually available as well for a small fee.

 "I have found the classes have been very supportive and yes given me structure also but have managed to keep me 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

 

schedule>

Individual sessions - Online: are next available from 8 September as I am now on Summer Break. I offer either individually tailored Awareness Through Movement lessons or Somatic Counselling sessions - unique because of the focus on the body and felt sense. Effective in iilluminating psychological and physiological patterns that underly postural and movement issues. Both are also available by a sliding scale fee. Functional Integration hands-on sessions are expected to be available again from 15 September.

and here's what someone says about their online sessions:

 

"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 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

 

"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.

 

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.

 

"I look back over almost 12 years (eek!) since we met in your lovely garden studio 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.
