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.

What gets measured, gets improved

What gets measured, gets improved. It sounds simple, does it not? We have experienced and seen over the past year that the simple act of merely measuring something can have a tremendous influence on the thing itself (Covid 19 pandemic). If you track your steps with an app you will strive to complete your 10,000 a day. If [...]

Why am I out of shape?

Why am I out of shape? Why do I never lose weight? Why do I never get rid of my chronic pain in my back, knees and hips? Why do I wait for someone else to fix me? Why do I spend endless time and money on medical professionals and therapists with only short term [...]

“Only those who can attempt the absurd, can achieve the impossible” – Albert Einstein

I get so many enquiries for everything and anything from chronic pain and weight loss to business and mentoring advice. When clients attend my studios and don’t get the results they wish to see, it”s always because they are not changing their behaviour, habits and belief systems outside the studio. I never just throw anyone [...]

Could it be health, diet, business, relationship, bank balance, chronic pain and the list goes on…  What are you willing to do about it?

What’s holding you back?

I get so many enquiries for weight-loss, chronic pain and rehabilitation programs, but in reality, most people won’t take action. They stay where they are, the want to change but don’t. This is because they actually see more benefit in staying the same than changing. We are like a compass needle; it will only point [...]

Is mould/myotoxic exposure causing your illness?

Unfortunately, exposure to toxic mould from water damp buildings is very common and completely under-diagnosed. At least 50% of homes and 60% of commercial buildings have some kind of water/damp issue — this includes churches, schools, dorms as well as office buildings (and don’t forget your car).  With at least 20% of the population being susceptible to [...]

Are health & medicine the same thing?

Is it time we step up and take accountability for own health, behaviour and lifestyle? We all want to spectate in life, taking full participation and to be able to critical think takes effort and good health. “Real thinking is hard work, that’s why most of us rearrange our prejudices.” William James. We of course need [...]
