Here we go!

I’ve just added a whole schedule of workshops and classes to my Acuity booking system. As we move out of lockdown, I’m very happy to offer live classes and – for the time being – a Saturday workshop where you can choose to join via zoom or be there in person. Here’s the link to view all the available classes. https://MIndfulBodyclasses.as.me/

Online Classes are still continuing!


12 – 12.30pm “Home Office – Take a Break From Work” ONLINE

First Saturdays Workshops.

These workshops allow you to go a little deeper into the Feldenkrais Method and find out more about integrated, functional movement. On the First Saturday of every month, I hold a 90 minute online workshop on a special theme.

Saturday 6 February 10-11.30am: “Relief for Stiff Ankles, Feet & Knees”

Saturday 6 March 10-11.30am: “Better Balance and Coordination”

Saturday 3 April 10-11.30am: “Happier Hips”

Please book here


At present, I am seeing 1:1 clients online for either 30 or 60 minute sessions. If you are struggling with your range of movement or are recovering from an injury, I can help you. Please email me on dianne_hancock@hotmail.com for more information.

We’re back to live classes!

It’s been great fun teaching Feldenkrais online whilst we’ve been in lockdown but I’m aware that, for some people, online classes are not for them. Therefore, I’m very pleased to say that All Saints Church is opening its doors again in September. I will be starting live classes again on Thursday 10 September from 10 – 11am. We will be in the main hall, which is large enough to be safely socially distanced, and also much quieter as it’s some distance from the playgroup!
To ease people back into live classes, the first session will be free to attend. I’m sure everyone is aware of the safety measures we need to have in place because of Covid-19, so please bring your own mat or blanket to lie down on; I will mark out the floor so that you have a safe space of 1-2 metres from other people. I will be limiting numbers for this class so please use this Eventbrite link to book, then I can keep an eye on capacity. https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/free-taster-feldenkrais-class-tickets-117549512757
The online classes will continue on Wednesdays from 5.30-6.30pm and Fridays from 11.15-12.15, so if you can use your Class Pass for any or all three classes.
In person or online, it will be lovely to see you in September.

Committing to Yourself

Busy people often have so many commitments, to their families, friends, children, work, clients…the list can seem endless but sometimes what’s missing from that list is self-care. This is the most important item on anyone’s list because – as the Buddhist saying goes:

You, yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection

As a Feldenkrais teacher, I encourage people to take care of themselves but all too often, I see that self-care becomes a low priority when others need care and attention. We understand unconditional love allows the vulnerable to flourish, so why not love yourself unconditionally? If you know that time set aside for exercise, quiet reflection or pleasurable activity makes a real difference to your physical and mental health, then make a commitment to that personal time – but don’t punish yourself if you can’t always do this!

It’s often easier to make a commitment to self-care if you’ve signed up for a block of sessions – it takes more than one session to change your habits and attitude towards yourself! That’s why I created the Class Pass to make life easier for my clients. A drop-in class is £8 but a Class Pass gets you five online sessions that you can take at any time over 90 days – a no-brainer really! Make the commitment today and click on this link
