Welcome!

Welcome to the Home Page of The Mindful Body, Feldenkrais and Yoga in Sheffield.

I am a qualified teacher of The Feldenkrais Method and I teach classes, workshops and individual sessions in and around the Sheffield area. I also travel to colleges and universities to teach specialist modules for dancers, actors and musicians.  If you are interested in learning more about The Feldenkrais Method,  please follow the different pages on this website. If you would like to book a class for yourself or for a group of people, then you can go straight to my Classes page to book or leave a message.

I am also a qualified teacher of Hatha Yoga and again, I teach classes for individuals and groups in and around Sheffield. I am passionate about people finding physical and mental wellness through movement and my style of teaching yoga encourages you to find ease, comfort and confidence in the physical postures as well as discovering the benefits of relaxation and mindfulness. You can find out more on my Classes page and on my Yoga and Feldenkrais page.

I hope you enjoy looking through this website, if you’ve questions or comments, please go to the Contact page and leave me a message.

Putting a Spring in Your Step!

Yes, apologies for the pun but here we are nearly at the end of a soggy February and many of us are looking forward to better days and drier weather. I’m grabbing any respite from the rain to get out in the fresh air – as we all now, daylight and the open air is good for our mental and physical health. My next workshop is all about better walking and running, whether you’re a couch potato that needs to find the propulsion to get up and go, an active walker/runner that keeps finding discomfort after activity or you would simply like to find a better swing to your stride, come along to “Improve Your Stride” on Saturday 7th March 2020 from 10.30-12.00pm. The workshop is at Remedy House, 24 Wilkinson Street S10 2GB and costs £20 per person or £36 for two. I guarantee you’ll feel the difference.

More Workshop Reviews!

In my last post, I mentioned some of the comments following my January workshops. Here’s another: “I loved the way we stretched in the class which had a significant impact later but was almost unobtrusive in that I don’t realise the extent to which I’m stretching whilst I’m doing it. Most certainly felt two inches tall at the end and “active” once I arrived home. There were a number of stretches I can do in bed too which is a great way of starting the day.”

Happy New Year!

2020 has got off to a great start for the Mindful Body with two fully booked workshops. The first – “Moving with Your Whole Spine” – was on 4 January 2020 and I got some lovely feedback from participants. “I feel like I’ve got a whole new body!” one woman said at the end of the session. It is so rewarding to give people the experience of better movement. Workshop No.2 was in the lovely Equaminity Studio at Penistone on Saturday 11 January and that theme was “Functional Feet”. Here’s one review: “Thank you for a great workshop, Dianne. As a Reflexologist, I don’t often get a chance to ‘twiddle with my own toes’! This gentle and subtle Feldenkrais movement therapy really makes your brain work – strangely! I felt relaxed and sleepy afterwards – and yet more aware of my body and more alert at the same time. Looking forward to the next workshop.”  Upcoming classes and workshops can be found here

I’m very pleased to announce that I will be starting a new Feldenkrais class at Equaminity Studios in Penistone this week. The new class will be from 10 – 11am every Thursday and is suitable for those new to the Method and for people who have already enjoyed the benefits of The Feldenkrais Method and how it can help you to improve your movement range with ease and comfort.
