The Yoga Deep Release class [at the Shala] is a wonderfully relaxing and gentle way to relieve tension and wind down at the end of a stressful day.  I love the stillness of the poses and find Raluca's warm and engaging teaching style extremely soothing.

One of my favourite things in a Mysore class is the tinkling sound of Raluca’s giggle as she adjusts and connects with her students.

This is my "go to" class of the week - a perfect way to let go of the week and to ease in to the weekend!

[Raluca] is such a gentle teacher and delivered the classlike she was giving a gift.

[Raluca’s] Yin classes are varied and interesting - every class bringinga different emphasis.

Feldenkrais Method

The Feldenkrais Method is a form of somatic education that uses slow and specific movement sequences to create an awareness of the self from within. The method was developed by Dr. Moshe Feldenkrais in the second half of the twentieth century. Feldenkrais was a visionary who anticipated the discovery of neuroplasticity by developing a method that used movement to rewire or develop damaged or lost brain connections. His work was not only designed to repair, but to improve the abilities of people seen holistically, as inseparable mind and body units. This is a learning method that redefines movement as the key to our being and learning process as humans.


If you are interested in trying the Feldenkrais Method and helping me practice as part of my training, please contact me:

In April 2022 I enrolled on 4 year Feldenkrais Professional Training Programme. At the end of this training I will become a qualified Feldenkais practitioner, delivering Awareness to Movement group classes and hands-on Functional Integration one-to-one lessons. Until then, I am offering free short sessions to those who want to help me train and experience this amazing movement and learning method.


Somatics refers to practices that focus on an internal awareness of the self through movement. 


My approach to somatics is derived from the Feldenkrais Method and is informed by mindfulness and yoga.

 “Movement is life. Life is a process. Improve the quality of the process and you improve the quality of life itself.” 

Moshe Feldenkrais
