"I am finding the work deeply interesting on all levels - physical, emotional and mental. And, very relaxing". Sarah C


“I came to Nikhila 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

"This was my first experience of Feldenkrais.  I really enjoyed the workshop. It felt warm inclusive and relaxing.  As the workshop developed, working consciously to scan areas of stress,  I began to realise how much tension I have been holding in my body and the degree of pain I have been ignoring . It was quite a revelation. After the workshop I felt lighter and brighter  and inspired to do more." Ruth


Thank you so much for making me more aware of my body and how I process feelings in my body. I took home a sense of what my body should be doing and can do and so I can work towards that. Thank you! Anoushka


"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! A lot of water has flowed under our respective bridges. I enjoy taking ATM 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
