Small friendly classes, great teachers and comfortable safe space. Feldendkrais for all, gentle movement that structures, supports and brings awareness to move in a greater, more flexible manner.  Margaret is an excellent teacher, helps you to fine tune your body with ease. Dance Class and Ukulele, great teachers, fun learning environment, great for your body and brain, keeps both active in a fit and fun way.  All set in lovely surroundings, a garden to sit in, a 10 minute walk from Newtown Station. Friendly and caring staff.

A quiet women’s space in the busyness of Newtown is invaluable to my wellbeing.


Excellent teachers, excellent location. Meeting new and interesting women.  Feldenkrais classes are very beneficial as well as fun.

It has really made a difference in my health and mental wellbeing coming to these classes. They are friendly and welcoming with excellent teachers and they are affordable.  I particularly get a lot from the Feldenkrais with Margaret because it has improved my flexibility and strength.

Meeting with other friendly women.  Coming to Feldenkrais and New Moves and connecting with my body.  A calm quiet time for energetic movement. I love the way we are told we are all beautiful and we look beautiful.
