We're VIRTUALLY STILL OPEN! and offering for the foreseeable future:

Weekly Classes (3) Online These are live classes, not pre-recorded, Feldenkrais is especially suited to online teaching as we practitioners are trained in teaching to students who can only hear us. see



Individual sessions Online. While obviously no longer hands-on, they take the form of individually tailored Awareness Through Movement lessons, and/or Somatic Counselling work - which is a body-based inquiry method that can help iilluminate psychological and physiological patterns that can underly postural and movement issues.

Meditation/Inquiry groups Online coming soon.

If you are doing these recorded lessons without prior experience: One important tip: 'Do not do anything that hurts' - is basic guidance for every Feldenkrais lesson. If pain persists seek medical advice. These lessons are not a substitute for medical advice given by your doctor.



"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


“I came to Nikhila for series of 1-1 FI sesions to see if she could help me with some long-standing chronic pain problems resulting from injury. Over the course of about ten years I had tried many types of physical therapy, and nothing seemed to help. I had gone past the point of despair many times when I finally discovered Feldenkrais, and suddenly it seemed like there was
a way forward. I started with some one-to-one sessions with Nikhila, and straight away I found that my body had the potential to feel very different, to feel like it belonged to me again. I won't say it has been easy, but I have made steady progress through one-to-one sessions
and group classes, and have reached a place that I couldn't have thought possible 2 or 3 years ago. Feldenkrais has added a new dimension to my life and my way of thinking. I am really grateful to Nikhila for her sensitivity, and for her skill in working on complex
problems and treating the whole person, not just the injury.”
Becky L.


"It's amazing how one's body can change 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 really helpful in unravelling the effects of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome". Stefan


"Big thanks for our session, I immediately felt reconnected and energised - I am more back to myself, after as you know, weeks of dental treatment" Lynne


"I can feel my WHOLE back now, and how it moves! its' such a joy!" Miriam

"Classes with you teaching have been a constant support to my life since moving to the area. They energise me in very subtle (and not so subtle!) ways - and ehance and help me maintain flexibility in mind and body - both! 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.


"Whatever we did in class last week fixed my arm which had been aching and tingling for a while. It's stopped - and it hasn't come back!" George Cole, masseur/acupuncturist


"I look back over almost 10 years (eek!) since we met in your lovely garden studio and it's hard to believe how far things 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!" JP
