Count down to the Easter Break

Just to let you know that there will be two more Feldenkrais classes before the Easter break – this Thursday at 5.45-6.45 and Saturday 10.30-11.30 at Breathe Pilates, so treat yourself to a little pre-holiday class. Then I’m taking a break until 18 April when I’m running – by popular request – a half day workshop entitled “Releasing your Neck, Shoulders and Upper Back”. The workshop will be from 10.30 – 1pm with a break for tea and biscuits halfway. I’m attaching a flyer for this and please let me know if you’d like to book.
For those who have paid for a block of classes, don’t worry classes will start again on Thursday 23 April and Saturday 25 April as before. Its £35 for a block of four classes (doesn’t have to be consecutive and you can mix up Thursdays and Saturdays). Drop in rate is £9.50 with a 20% discount for Equity, M.U. members and full-time students. Keep an eye on the website for more information.
Happy holidays everyone and hope to see you soon.

Refresh yourself with a Spring Workshop!

SATURDAY 18 APRIL 2015 WORKSHOP: “Releasing Your Neck, Shoulders and Upper Back” 10.30 – 1pm. Lack of flexibility and tension in your upper body can affect everything you do. This workshop will help you find easier ways of improving your everyday movement and different approaches to your yoga and sports practice. If you would like to try a one to one session with Dianne where individual issues can be explored, there is an opportunity to book a half hour taster session following the workshop. £20 (£18) Please go to for more information releases Doidge chapter on Feldenkrais

Salon, a news and entertainment website, decided to release a free chapter of Norman Doidge’s latest book “The Brain’s Way of Healing” and that chapter was the one all about The Feldenkrais Method and Moshe Feldenkrais’ work in neuroplasticity. Its interesting that Norman Doidge has spent a good deal of this chapter describing Moshe Feldenkrais’ personal history as opposed to his work in the field of neuroplasticity – which is the main topic of Doidge’s book. Feldenkrais was a remarkable man and had a remarkable life, that shouldn’t undermine his worth, even if it does read “more like a spy thriller than a neuroscience textbook”. Personally, I think there is nothing wrong with making science textbooks accessible. See for yourself: moshe_feldenkrais3
