“When you know what you are doing you can do what you want.”
I teach gentle Awareness through Movement mat classes where you can explore your whole self (body and mind), with movement as the medium and awareness as the primary means.
Lessons adopt a softly, softly approach, immersing you in the moment, mindfully. You are guided to explore familiar and novel movement patterns, with an emphasis on comfort, curiosity and attention.
In this way, you increase sensitivity to yourself, identify unhelpful habits and fine-tune co-ordination. You start to rely on your body’s own wisdom. The result is more mobility, skill, balance and power.
All ages and abilities are welcome; sessions are for everyone - let me know if it is tricky for you to get up and down from a mat as I can prepare accessible variations.
Both studios are light and airy, with mats and props provided. Just come in comfy clothing you can move in.

For only £8 per class, book a block of classes to make substantial changes in how you move and feel. You will grow your movement intelligence and come home to your body
Class sizes are small for individual attention
Classes in the block develop a theme; by coming to all classes you have the chance to enjoy all the steps
With built-in flexibility, you can swap to a different class if you can’t get to your usual one - just let me know so I can check there is space for you
I teach in ‘terms’ or around 4 - 7 weeks, with a week or two off in between when the studios are closed. You don’t have to come every week, just book for the number of classes you can attend that term

Book to pay and reserve your spot. Or pay when you come. But, to save a wasted trip, please check there is space - call / text on 07817 362281 or email. Thank you
Come to a workshop for an unhurried way at a weekend to explore this practical method of movement and well-being improvement
We do three Awareness through Movement lessons to introduce the Feldenkrais method and develop a theme
Each theme starts with a focus on one part of the body, but develops to become effective for your whole body and mind
Time for refreshments, breaks, Q&As about anatomy, neuroscience or self-care techniques
Try a mini taster session first (with a max of 1 other person), to find out more about how these classes may suit you before you join a group class
Book a one-to-one masterclass for the lesson to be tailored to you personally - perfect if recovering from injury, or you are an athlete or performer wishing to refine your movement mastery
