Weekly Classes for Autumn Term

Please Get In Touch> if the dates below don't work for you, join our mailing list and get regular schedule updates, or to arrange a free 10-15 min phone call to discuss your needs.


Tuesday evenings 6.30-7.15 Online

31 October, 14 & 21 November block of 3

Exploring shorter (45 min)lessons in sitting.

These lessons offer not only an understanding of the mechanism of sitting but also a range of self-help 'tools' that facilitate being seated and work with typical discomforts. These classes are also a great option for those who are unable to lay on the floor or get up/down easily.

"I have engaged with Feldenkrais method classes for many years. I am finding these online zoom classes very effective and enabling. Since classes are always guided by listening and individual, personal internal attention to movement, (not watching or accessing movement from a visual exterior), they are extremely successful, offering Nikhila's presence and voice directions in lived time (attentive to what you are doing, via the zoom), in comfort of your own space, with ease of immediate resting after, able to quietly digest the wisdoms that the class has offered the body-mind. I highly recommend them." Jill Lewis

"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.

"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


"I find the work totally amazing- I feel like my whole central nervous system is being re-wired.." G F 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


"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."  SW
