Nordic Body Kinetics & Gyrotonic® Method Nordic Body Kinetics is a precise exercise method of mindful movement, stretching, core strengthening & breathing that builds deep body awareness & functionality.

Balance & Mindfulness

In our fast paced lives, particularly for those living in an urban environment, we lack balance and mindfulness. That pace fragments our time as we are encouraged to jump from one complex challenge to the next. Sleep is often fragmented too.

It is my belief that this pace combined with the constant requirement for attention and focus at all times, slowly but steadily, depletes our energy until there is a disconnect between our inner selves and our bodies.

Nordic Body Kinetics aims to restore that balance through a practice that is unique, mindful, holistic and totally natural.

Our classes are fun, and incorporate  movement, functional breathing, deep core strengthening and dynamic stretching.

You will benefit from greater freedom of movement, better posture and an increased feeling of wellbeing.

I first came to see Shirley due to RSI in my fingers and she's worked a programme that relooks at my posture, habits (good and bad) to retrain my body to work in a more economical way so that no one part will strain again.

Shirley is incredible. She really knows her stuff. Every session I feel lifted and empowered ..she's helped me recover from injury, and maintain a healthful relationship with my body.

After years of muscle pain, physiotherapy and chiropractic "fixes", I finally found someone who can help me fix myself.

Federico G

I had a disc collapse 2 years ago.. lots of pain.. many repeated visits to the physio & chiro. I tried Pilates, Yoga, Water Gym and more to improve my back, but only since starting with Shirley can I do sport and be injury free. I feel lucky to have met her and have recommended her to many friends.

What an improvement! - I thought I was going to have to see the surgeon again about my pelvic prolapse. I haven't always been conscientious about my homework, so this was an unexpected result. A big thank you.

My body feels nurtured and understood; more mobile than it has been for a long time. Shirley has a deep knowledge of the body, a keen eye and attention to detail. She skilfully connected me from top to toe, using movement, breath, and specific exercises.

Lynn Rae

Facial Pilates Instructor & Massage Therapist

My first 1:1 with Shirley - I learnt a lot of new movements to help with my balance, breathing and maintaining good posture. The relaxation at the end of the class was just wonderful. Really enjoyed every minute as well as a noticeable difference when walking out of the studio.

Every class is different, challenging and engaging. Shirley is not only helping me with specific problem areas, but continues to help me improve with all aspects of body mindfulness. There is always more to learn and attempt! Today's class was incredibly specific, focused and intense in such a positive way!... so worth it!

Julianne White

At last I've found someone who really understands how the body is put together! I am embarking on a journey of discovery at every session... Having been round the houses with different exercise regimes, now in my mid-fifties, I am finally able to activate my core and pelvic floor to give me the stability I have been searching for! I feel de-stressed and refreshed after each session.

Tina T

I have been taking lessons with Shirley for just over a year ...she has completely transformed my body. Shirley has helped me make my body work by activating muscles I didn't know I had and I feel the best I have felt in my life.

CA (Aged 60)

I'm a physically fit, active 17 year old who didn't think stretches of any kind could be beneficial to my physical wellbeing. I suffered pain after running long distances & decided to see if Shirley could help me. She quickly indentified ... and the results I saw after just a few classes were just incredible..I continue with Shirley alongside my training in the gym and on the pitch.
