About Jackie

Jackie Adkins says

My background is in dance – mainly Contemporary Dance, Release Work and Contact Improvisation.

As well as specialising in the Feldenkrais Method, in which I qualified as a practitioner in 2002, I have explored various mind-body approaches including Body-Mind Centering, Gabrielle Roth’s 5 Rhythms, Pilates and Alexander Technique. During 13 years living in London I worked as a freelance dance and movement teacher in many community settings as well as Adult and Higher Education Institutions. I moved to North East Scotland in 2005, where I lived and ran my Feldenkrais practice for 9 years. In 2014 I  re-located to Frome in Somerset where I run my practice as well as teaching Movement Skills on the BA Acting degree at Bath Spa University. I have full Membership of the Feldenkrais Guild UK.”
