About Nisha Srivastava

Nisha is a certified Chek practitioner and holistic lifestyle coach.Her journey started when a visiting Laban teacher introduced her to Pilates at Dance College during her first year. It's effects were forgotten but she then re discovered Pilates through Michael King eleven years later whilst running her dance school. Her background spans over 25 years with formal training in classical ballet, modern dance, tap, national choreography, stage production and theatre. Her formation includes Pilates, Thai bodywork, Yoga, GYROTONIC, GYROKINESIS, Garuda and anatomical studies. Her particular interest is fascia, and the connective lines and movement patterns that allow a full moving structure rather than the isolation of bones and muscles. Her fascination with questioning the traditions of modern medicine and fascination with searching for meaningful answers has taken her in many different directions and has offered her an abundance of opportunities gaining a wealth of knowledge. “I tried many movement modalities and extended my search after experiencing fascia, because of its simplicity in movement. Quickly, I noticed my own body changing as well as the bodies of my own clients. In the last 25 years of teaching I’ve developed a workout unique to Yoga Anatomy". Throughout her studies Nisha has done numerous dissections with Julian Baker and Cery Davies and has the opportunity to take lectures and courses from James de Silva, Robert Schleip, Joanne Avisons, Tom Myers, Matt Wallden, Emma Lane, Gary Carter, Paul Chek, Dan Hellman, Peter Blackaby plus many many more Nisha's teaching method promotes reflective self-discovery and provides the requirements to integrate a shift in consciousness for attaining individual goals. She maintains that an attitude of compassion, consistency and joyous humor are excellent components to growth and expanded potential. She welcomes all level of movers from the beginner to the seasoned athlete who have a desire to increase their skill potential, also teachers and students. Her specialties include assisting post rehabilitative individuals, injury prevention for dancers and athletes and advanced movement programs.

Every one of you is a winner

I have just had the pleasure of chatting with Richard Attwood (nickname Dickie).  Richard “Dickie” Attwood competed in 17 World Championship Grand Prix, racing for Lotus, Cooper and BRM; he also won the 1970 24h Le Mans.  I asked him what his biggest attribute has been in his life. He said winning the F1 formula [...]

Are you constantly distracted and procrastinating?

Distraction is a decision, not a disease - a thing that prevents someone from concentrating on something else. We never get distracted from the things that we value the highest. We all fall victim to distraction and procrastination including myself. This can be the phone, the internet, the computer, the Ipad, the washing, the cooking, [...]

Nelson Mandela’s bodyguard

I was fortunate enough to be invited to listen to activist Chris Lubbe in Liverpool last week. He was Nelson Mandela’s bodyguard. He told the most defying story of his upbringing, torture and apartheid (segregation/apart on the grounds of race) in South Africa. The audience was full of tears. Chris’s purpose in life is to [...]

Posture, high blood pressure, mouth breathing and the virus.

Myth - Exercise alone will restore your posture! (But it won’t). Everyone expects only one piece of the puzzle to work. We have to take a holistic view of the body, including breath work, hydration, sleep, mindset and nutrition. Breathing is an essential component of life and can both energize and relax you when performed [...]

The hardest thing to do is to change our behaviour from yesterday to do something different today, tomorrow, next week, next month, next year.... This is [...]

Being uncomfortable for personal growth……

I have just signed up for the SAS fan-dance on the July 1st 2022. My mind has gone through over a thousand excuses of why I should not or cannot do it, but I have pushed myself. Yes, I am scared and not really looking forward to the event, but guess what it will benefit [...]
