Apologies to those of you who are longing for an in-person class - these will come, I promise! in good time.  Eventually my intention is to have one in-person and one online class per week.  Plus a range of workshops.

 

Did you know?  Results of a national study by the UK Feldenkrais Guild showed that Online Feldenkrais Awareness Through Movement classes are one of the few things that work really well in favour of participants?  With very little screen time (since you mostly have your eyes closed), you can tune in from anywhere on the planet and, you're totally in charge of your environment, it's temperature - and if you forgot your sweater, your socks, or your mat, you can just go get them. And you have no travel time to consider, or travel costs.

Hope to see you there soon.

A different topic is introduced each time to explore... read more>

.

If you have persistent pain or injury, at least one 1-1 'Functional Integration' lessons is recommended prior
to attending workshops or classes. It just basically means I can help you more - you get individual attention, lessons are tailored to your specific interests.. An 'FI' or two will enhance the benefits of the groupwork and accelerates your learning, healing and improvement when you then come to a Course, or Workshop.

TESTIMONIALS

 

"What I got from your classes was relief from neck pain which used to disturb my sleep. The relief goes on!" Joyce M, counsellor


" I have been so vastly grateful for the online Feldenkrais classes Nikhila is offering. They have kept my whole system feeling ‘lithe’ and alive, resilient and … hopeful. They have nourished flexibility and a calmness inside. They resource my relationship to breath – which seems so vital in this pandemic. And every time they have lifted my spirits and a sense of possibility. I consider them a vital resource in this time of disconnect and worry (I have been sheilding for 3 months now). The method itself combined with Nikhila’s particular way of being and teaching, the very spirit of her work, fill me with deepest appreciation".
Jill L.


"You have a lovely and hypnotic voice. It's a pleasure to listen to" Wendy

 

"Thank you for today's lesson - I've been drawn to working with you for many months but live too far away and often work in London so it's always been too difficult to attend. Since todays class I have felt much taller and looser in my neck and shoulders - wonderful for me as this is where I hold on tight! I have also felt much calmer just being in the open honest envirnment you hold, albeit online and brief". Tracy

 

"ATM Gave me a feeling of deep physical and mental relaxation which stayed with me for days. It was as if my body had been taken apart and put back together, but in the right order. It was a great day." William

 

Thank you for introducing me to a body work method that makes so much sense!" M.Kaan

 

"I find the work totally amazing- I feel like my whole central nervous system is being re-wired.." Gretchen Faust, yoga teacher

"It's amazing how the body can change so much from lying on a floor making small gentle movements. My body is more relaxed with better posture and has become more interesting; my mind is no longer inclined towards extra effort. At both mental and physical levels Feldenkrais is so very helpful” Stefan Karpik

 

"Another wonderful workshop! I am so happy for all the new found movement in my body! I look forward to more!" Alicia G.


"when we were on holiday recently my husband injured his back. Thanks to all the sessions and classes I've had with you over the years, I was able to help him, and he was better within three days! a big thank you! it meant we could enjoy the rest of our holiday" Amanda C.

 

"I found the experience very relaxing, and I feel it's brought a new and more subtle awareness of my body which is very interesting. I appreciated your gentle manner too." 

 

"Thank you for your kind and powerful teaching" Sally W.
