Grea Wessels: Physiotherapist
“The course at Universitas Hospital opened a whole new dimension in my thinking about the body as a system, about the relationship between parts; rather than a narrow focus on the problem. It was also like a weekend away at a spa, it was so relaxing”.

Reville Nussey: Senior Lecturer in Education
“Barbara is an extremely skillful Feldenkrais practitioner: she has helped to relieve my ongoing lower back and hip problem in an intuitive, warm and compassionate manner. In addition, Barbara has taught me how to help myself in a non-judgmental way, and I am most grateful for her insight and wisdom”.
Claire Louw: Springbok Triathlete and Orthopaedic Physiotherapist
“Far and away the best way to spend three hours on a Saturday morning is lying on a mat, in a class, where Barbara McCrea guides you through effortless movement using the Feldenkrais Method.
No experience is necessary and athletes or the infirm are able to benefit as the nervous system re-engages with the learning we did as babies. Whenever I reluctantly arise from the mat after one of these sessions I marvel at the fact that I feel completely calm and balanced - free from stiffness and with a profound feeling of wellness.
I would also wholeheartedly recommend Barbara’s one-on-one sessions. She has very good hands and is an intuitive therapist.”
Lisa Firer: Ceramicist and Dancer
“I have had the great honour of experiencing Feldenkrais work with Barbara. She is a deeply skilled practitioner, facilitates the hands-on work with gentleness and to great effect. I had an ongoing rotator cuff injury that I spent years trying to sort out and reached full recovery through the process with Barbara. Her Saturday morning workshops are extremely nourishing and have helped me to integrate many aspects of the Feldenkrais practise. I cannot recommend Barbara enough!”
