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.

The secret to coping with our emotions.

Why is it that we feel happy, inspired, excited and enthusiastic yet other times we feel angry, jealous, sad, overwhelmed and depressed??? We are all too quick to blame someone or something for the way we feel in life. As soon as we say: “I feel”, we give our power away. Easier said than done, [...]

“It’s not what happens on the outside of you, it’s what happens on the inside of you that determines the quality of your life”.

I have many new enquiries from clients and want to be teachers recently. You may be suffering from back pain, want to lose weight, give up smoking, stop drinking, leave a relationship (personal or work), start a new career or stop suffering from emotional/mental health issues. Well this is thing; if what you are doing [...]

“We don’t see things as they are, we see things as we are”. Anais Nin.

This is related to the idea that each person who sees a thing will see it filtered through their own perceptions. So none of us really see any situation objectively. This is known as confirmation bias. Each person sees life with their own beliefs, preconceptions, interpretation, and attitude. It means that the way we see [...]

The good, bad and ugly……..

Reading all my reviews you would think I have 100% positive results. Well this is the truth. NOT EVERYONE GETS AMAZING RESULTS when they join my Pilates, teaching programmes and chronic pain programs. Why? Well, not everyone does the work, or is prepared to look at different narratives. We tend to do what we have [...]

Do negative, friends, relatives, partners, boss, work colleagues actually exist???

Did you know that we spend and waste too much time and energy on other people? Their behaviour, their actions, their words, thoughts and deeds. So this is really IMPORTANT. I am not excusing people’s behaviour here or accepting it. However people's behaviour is reflection of where they are, what they are, and how they [...]
