Here we are, at the start of a new year and I’m really excited about the possibilities that could be waiting! January got a great start last weekend with the first First Saturday workshop “Improve Your Stride” at Breathe Pilates. We had a full class, full of a really interesting range of people all keen to explore better ways of moving. If you want to see the dates and themes of the next workshops, head over to
I’m part of the Feldenkrais Guild UK and about four times a year we get together for advanced training, sharing ideas and developing our skills as Feldenkrais practitioners. Last weekend, I had an enjoyable two days looking at new business ideas for my clients (lovely short of the back of my head here!). Watch this space for news of events, offers and classes in 2017.
Here are the latest Feldy events coming up soon…

Sunday workshop at 199 Rustlings Road: “Improving Balance and Coordination” Balance affects everything we do in moving – standing, walking, dancing and running. Most importantly, it affects how we feel about ourselves as we move through life. This workshop will help improve your movement efficiency and confidence. 10 April 2016 from 11.00-12.30pm. Please email to book (£18 for workshop – £5 deposit on booking)
We had a really enjoyable workshop yesterday on Releasing Neck and Shoulders – a very full class but everyone managed to find room on the floor! I hope to continue our monthly workshops in Sheffield so watch this space for the next date and theme
Had a very enjoyable class yesterday at Breathe Pilates where we explored flexibility in ankles and feet which is so important for supporting movement in the whole body and giving knees some much needed help! This month we’re going to develop the theme of flexibility in feet, ankles and knees and how we can integrate the whole body in this.
This morning I’ve been listening to this excellent programme from Australia’s ABC network “The Body Sphere”. It contains one of the clearest explanations of The Feldenkrais Method and also has an interview with Dr Frank Wildman who wrote “The Busy Person’s Guide to Easier Movement” – a publication I recommend to anyone interested in an introduction to The Method.
The Mindful Body has found a new home at Breathe Pilates. The studio is warm and sunny in a lovely building right next to The Botanical Gardens. Ideal for these chilly mornings when everyone needs a gentle way to loosen tensions, shake out those bones and move into an easier day!trevordiy.wordpress.com
