The results of practicing the ELDOA Method are a sense of ease in your body, especially in your back, improved posture, and an overall sense of well-being. This practice promotes independence. You will learn how to relieve, heal and strengthen your own spine!

A French Osteopath named Guy Voyer created ELDOA to eradicate back pain. Using the body’s fascial chains and the principle of tensegrity, the postures of ELDOA set up specific lines of traction to open up spaces in our spinal column as well as shoulders, hips and ribs. Marla blends this powerful practice with yogic breathing and gentle stretches.

Many of Marla’s Eldoa students feel relief from pain after other approaches have failed them. They leave class feeling relaxed, empowered and taller. They understand her clear instruction with images that help them to remember the movements. Students sleep better, move more easily, and improve their posture!

What Marla’s students are saying:

“Marla has an incredible understanding of the body as well as the generosity and intelligence to communicate her knowledge in a way that can be shared with others.”

-Lesley Telford

“Marla is a great instructor and an amazing, kind person. I attend both her yoga and Eldoa classes. I particularly like the unique stretches and posture focus Marla has for my computer neck!”

-Jeff Appelbe

“As a chiropractor, with a broken lumbar vertebra, I’m very picky about who I let treat my body or provide me with exercises. When I heard about Marla’s ELDOA in Vancouver, I had to check it out. Apparently, Tiger Woods has used this technique to help him with his spine, so it had to be valuable, right? Right. Marla is very professional, knows her functional anatomy, and is an excellent teacher. Even with my 20 years in practice, she taught this old dog some new tricks! I have already recommended a few clients to her classes, and they are getting a lot of benefits too. Great complement to chiropractic care.”

-Christian Guenette

 

Marla Waal

Marla was a professional dancer, trained in classical ballet among other styles. Based out of Montreal, then later Chicago, she travelled the globe performing and teaching. In 1998 she began to study various styles of yoga, from extremely gentle restorative, to more vigorous Ashtanga. Marla then studied Pilates with Diane Miller, Dynamic Anatomy with Eric Franklin, ELDOA Method created by Guy Voyer and more recently Buteyko Breathing created by Russian Doctor Konstantin Buteyko.

Marla is passionate about helping people feel more free and strong in their bodies by educating and directing them to learn through practice, and by sharing tools that promote independence.  She lives in beautiful Vancouver, BC, Canada with her two children. If you are in Vancouver and would like to attend one of her classes in person, she teaches at Qi Integrated Health.

Elegant walking is not only beautiful but also efficient and healthy!

This workshop will relax and organize the many bones in the feet, strengthen the ankles and set the hip joints and knees in right relationship with the  feet and pelvis. In walking we coordinate many joints together, from the circles that the feet make, to the hip joint and shoulder circles, to the uprightness of the spine and the clarity of the head resting on top of it. Efficient and elegant walking requires an elasticity from the feet to the neck and vice versa. We learn how to let go of unnecessary holding and unconscious stiffening.

The eyes organize the spine. They can help it to turn better and become more elongated. Eyes, neck and back are intimately connected.

The potential benefits of this seminar include better eyes, improved memory, good posture and more mobility in your entire spine. Eyes do not have to deteriorate when you get older. Glasses are not the cure for bad vision; They are merely a good crutch. If your eyes don’t work as well as you want them to, you can improve them and your spine with these wonderful Feldenkrais eye lessons.

The Feldenkrais Method® is a very advanced approach to body-mind integration and healing. We learn to re-pattern our movement as we develop awareness of how our brain and body co-function while moving. Feldenkrais Method® share many of the same principles and techniques with qigong. These movements are simple and gentle and can be repeated at home once you learn them.

Learn to breathe well, and you’ll lose that pain in your neck… Wait, what?!?

Surprisingly, learning to move the diaphragm and ribcage can unlock neck tension, scoliosis and immobility in the spine! Proper breathing provides huge benefits, including mental health! Oxygen is our primary source of energy, our lifeline, even before water and food: breathe well and everything changes.

In this workshop you get acquainted with your biggest muscle, the diaphragm. Once you learn to ‘drive’ this ‘motor’ in the center of your body, you move everything connected to it with greater ease. The diaphragm and the musculature between the ribs learn to work together. Your ribcage frees up and softens, and your spine elongates. The breath benefit travels up through your thoracic spine into your neck!  Who knew?

 

What others say about the Feldenkrais Method:

“I suffered a back injury on top of scoliosis for 8 years until a Feldenkrais practitioner asked me, ‘Do you know that you don’t need to be  in that pain?’ And, thanks to Feldenkrais, she was right.” – Renée Tillotson, Director, Still & Moving Center

“… It has allowed me to play pain free golf, without worrying about injury.” – Duffy Waldorf, PGA Tour Golfer

“… It has had an enormous effect on the way I run and on the way I live my life. My knee problem vanished. I’ve increased my mileage considerably without a trace of difficulty. And I’m running faster.” – Bruce Holmes, Runner’s World

“Feldenkrais has given me the power to take responsibility for any habits that don’t serve me, and the skills to transcend them.” – David Fein

“ … It has taught me how to shift a moment of pain into a lifetime of curiosity.” – Buffy Owens

“Movement is life. Life is a process. Improve the quality of the process and you improve the quality of life itself.” – Moshe Feldenkrais

Opening the hip flexors in this workshop increases healthy mobility and prevents hip damage. These Feldenkrais® movements enable you to sense the connection of your legs into your pelvis and torso so that all parts work together for powerful, flexible movement! Your lower back will also benefit.

Both Feldenkrais and Qigong agree that for our Chi/Energy to flow well, we need to drop straining and striving and apply awareness and breath. The similarities of Feldenkrais Method and Taoist understandings of the body allow for the two practices to enhance each other greatly – whether on our feet, on a mat or in a chair.

In this workshop you’ll find the right alignment of your spine for the energy centers in your body to naturally open. As you gain an easy alignment of your spine, feet and knees, your standing and sitting become simple in any situation. Your back feels better. You enhance any meditative practice, whether sitting, in Tai Chi or Qigong, etc. If you do not know anything about Tai Chi or Qigong this may be a good intro.

Dr Feldenkrais, a black belt judoka in France, applied abstract eastern concepts into a palpable western method of moving that enhanced his judo and helped him to overcome a serious knee injury.
