Dr. Feldenkrais had injured his knee badly in his youth and by the time he turned 40, he was on crutches. Rather than accepting his situation, he set out to understand his body, brain and nervous system. Thanks to the brilliantly orchestrated movement plan that he devised, he was able to rehabilitate himself. This was the start of the Feldenkrais Method. In this workshop we connect the dots to help the leg joints and also the pelvis and sacrum to move optionally together, as Dr. Feldenkrais did. You learn to put your weight through your knees and to align the knees better with your hip joints, ankles and rest of your body so that they can self-heal.
Through the sophisticated movement sequences of the Feldenkrais® Method and Eva’s SmartMoves, you re-find joint health, regain range of motion and undo tension and pain. Instead of being adjusted or treated by others time and time again, you can now learn what it is that causes you discomfort, tension or effort, as well as how to avoid it. In the course of this workshop, you assimilate easy and gentle movements to take your health into your own hands.
Students appreciate Eva’s sincere care for their health and excellence on every level. Her range of personal experience in various moving art forms and her understanding of the workings of the human body in motion are both vast.
Eva Alewa Geueke has been a guild certified Feldenkrais® practitioner for 30 years. She came to the Feldenkrais Method® as a young professional dancer and it changed her understanding of brain, body, movement and therefore, herself forever. Since completing the 4-year Professional Feldenkrais Training in 1987 she has been teaching the Feldenkrais Method® internationally in thousands of private sessions, week long seminars, many hundreds of week-end workshops and evening classes.

Eva is a teacher of Contemporary dance, Qigong-Universal Tao of Mantak Chia, a IAO healer, a Capoeirista (Brazilian martial arts) and a choreographer.
