Rolling is something we did as kids when our spines and ribs were still very flexible. In this workshop you can learn to have such a flexible spine again that rolling becomes pleasurable and informative to the health of your nervous system. Finding easier movement in the spine, you free the ribcage, and with it your breathing.

The ability to roll when you fall can be life saving. To be able to feel the enjoyment of rolling on the floor and giving your connective tissue a nice massage instead of feeling stiff will make your whole being happy.

The genius of the Feldenkrais© Method is to teach movement so that the impossible is possible, the difficult becomes easy, and the easy becomes elegant. Wouldn’t it feel wonderful to bend down easily and to get onto and off of the floor without any difficulty?  

This workshop will be playful and eye opening. It will open the chest, correct round backs and help your breathing. Your neck as well as your lower back may benefit. Your whole spine can achieve health and strength!  

This workshop may be taken by itself, yet Saturday will be a good preparation as it will get the spine ready for rolling.

 

Eva Alewa Geueke

Eva has been a guild certified Feldenkrais® practitioner for almost 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 also a teacher of Contemporary Dance, Qigong-Universal Tao of Mantak Chia, a IAO healer, a Capoeirista (Brazilian Martial Arts) and a choreographer. She also teaches Authentic Movement and Wave Continuum, a spin of Continuum Movement.

 

I have taken 2 workshops with Eva and she is a wonderful instructor/therapist. These classes are very informative and have helped me tremendously in my knowledge of body mechanics and movement and making healing connections in my body. – Ruth

I loved Eva’s Feldenkrais class! My shoulder felt stiff and sore for almost a month. With just a few simple and gentle movements it was feeling so much better! My spine was stretched out and my feet were more evenly holding my body weight. I plan to take more classes in near future.  Thank you Eva. You are Excellent!!! – Diane

I like the variety of classes offered, and the Center’s focus on the mind-body-spirit connection. I particularly enjoy Eva Geueke’s Feldenkrais classes. The facilities are beautiful, and everyone is so warm and welcoming to students and guests. – John

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 and disease resistance! 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. The diaphragm pulls equally, releasing unwanted curvatures in the spine. Your ribcage frees up and softens, and your spine elongates. The breath benefit travels up through your thoracic spine into your neck!  Who knew?

While you may take this workshop by itself, you will find that Sunday’s back-rolling workshop will reinforce the mobility and ease of breathing that you gain on Saturday.

During this workshop we’ll explore how the long Vagus Nerve communicates with the face, brain, and heart. When we were in the womb, the head bowed to the heart, connecting through the vagus nerve early on.  With unique sounds, breath, and spiral movement, we will explore this vagus nerve communication axis in the WaveContinuum way. 

In WaveContinuum, we evoke the healing power of water through sound, breath, and spiral movement, delving into the wisdom of “our inner biology.” Here we invite our inner waters to penetrate and saturate all the different layers of ourselves: muscles, connective tissue, organs, and cells. 

We learn to sense movements that come from deep inside and let them flow outwardly. In our body, we carry information from all the different stages of life, from the single cell-protozoa to the upright walking being. Diverse movement possibilities expand and provide new opportunities in our life. 

WaveContinuum can help dissolve pain and limitations. We learn to evoke fluids and spark electrical pulses through the body to heal and multiply healthy cells. Through the gentle, intuitive spiral movements and sounds, we explore beauty, strength, and creativity. We may even reverse aging. We tap into the wisdom that lies inside of the body’s fluid system and create a balance between Water, Fire, and Earth elements.

Life flows in the healing energy of spiral movement, breath, sound, love, and awareness! 

With this practice, the heart opens and strengthens, the mind calms, wisdom flows, and the spirit soars.

 

Eva Alewa Geueke

Eva (Honolulu / Cologne) practices the path of embodying the sacred through conscious movement and dance. Originally a professionally trained dancer who performed and made her own evening length dance pieces she ultimately felt that teaching would bring more healing and positive change into the world than performing.

After her Feldenkrais training and working intensively with Emily Conrad, the founder of Continuum Movement and Susan Harper in the 80’s and 90’s, Eva created Wave-Continuum. This beautiful healing movement practice opens the heart and connects the mover to the wisdom of life embedded in the fluid system of our cells and the universe. Undulating movement meditation, breath and sound bring this ancient awareness to the surface of our consciousness.

Heart, Neck, Shoulders & Wrists Connection

This workshop will serve to calm and strengthen the heart and nervous system, addressing neck, shoulder, wrist and hand issues along the way. In the last workshop we opened up the thoracic spine, which we will continue. Now we will increase our understanding of how the nervous system and the heart are linked. In Chinese medicine, the heart and pericardium’s electromagnetic circuit (meridian) flows through the arms and hands.

Physiologically, the heart extends itself through the muscles and connective tissues of the back and torso, into the shoulders, then to the arms, wrists, and hands. Metaphorically the heart expresses itself through the hands – as we see in hula, dance in general, acting, and everyday life. If we can imagine a healthy blood flow from the heart, perhaps we can imagine our emotions also flowing healthily out from the heart to the outer extremities. These are the signs of a strong, resilient heart.

Attendees will have access to a video recording session for a days after the workshop, at a modest price.

Enhance your lung health as you straighten your spine – it’s important for a healthy respiratory system. Eva will be offering live feedback to students during this interactive workshop.

This workshop will help your spine heal and/or stay healthy. If you have a twist in your spine (scoliosis) or suffer from roundback (kyphosis) this workshop can teach you how to lengthen your spine and undo curves that hinder free movement. Your neck, thoracic, and lumbar vertebrae will benefit and feel more mobile yet stable. You may be able to reduce headaches with these movements.

Our ribcage and diaphragm often reflect our spine’s habit of shortening to one side or to the front. To make lasting change, we will address mobility of the ribs and learn to balance the intercostal muscles to be more functional in all directions. With a freer ribcage and spine, we breathe more easily!

You’ll take 2 lessons with a water break in between.  We plan to record the lesson to make it available to workshop attendees for a small fee.

Important for a healthy respiratory system. Enhance your lung health as you straighten your spine. Eva will be offering live feedback to students during this interactive workshop.

Through the easy and gentle movements prescribed in the Feldenkrais Method, we learn to recognize and eliminate many of the common habits that interfere with deep breathing and good spinal organization. This workshop will focus on the diaphragm and lungs, neck, 7th cervical vertebrae, and how to lengthen rounded backs or scoliosis from the inside out.

We know that the diaphragm works, day in and day out, to move our lungs. Did you know the diaphragm also has an intimate relationship with the heart and the neck? The 7th cervical vertebrae- with many nerves going down the arms and the spine – is the key vertebrae in this connection. Dr. Feldenkrais once said: “We would not have neck problems if our lungs could glide freely.”

The diaphragm is a large muscle in the center of our body that is badly understood and neglected. When it does not move well, the diaphragm not only hampers oxygen intake but also pulls on our chest and neck. 

Through our mindful movement today, we’ll help the 7th cervical vertebrae to communicate with the diaphragm and lungs, freeing up the neck!

You’ll take 2 lessons with a water break in between.  We plan to record the lesson to make it available to workshop attendees for a small fee.

Happy Feet / Healthy Hip Combo: $115 

 

Your hip-pelvis-lower back connection is your powerhouse of locomotion. Free that area up, and just imagine how you will move again! 

In this three hour workshop we gently open the hip flexors to increase healthy mobility and prevent hip damage. The psoas muscles connect the legs to the lower back through the pelvis. The sacrum being centered  between the hip joints, we balance the sacrum and lower back to prevent herniated discs and sciatica.  

These subtle Feldenkrais sequences will help you to regain your range of motion, undoing hip and back tension and pain. As you move mindfully, you can sense your legs connecting into your hips, pelvis and torso, so that all parts work together for powerful, flexible and pain free movement! 

In the course of this workshop you learn to take your health into your own hands with easy and small movements. Instead of being adjusted or treated again and again by somebody else, you can now learn what it is that causes you discomfort, tension or effort, then learn how to avoid it. You learn to replace unconscious movement patterns with healthy ones that will make life easier and smoother.

Who Benefits from the Feldenkrais® Method?

Everyone can benefit from the Method. The Feldenkrais Method helps those experiencing chronic or acute pain of the back, neck, shoulders, hips, legs, or knees, as well as healthy individuals who wish to enhance their movement abilities. 

Feldenkrais has been very helpful in dealing with central nervous system conditions such as multiple sclerosis and stroke. Seniors enjoy using it to retain or regain their ability to move without strain or discomfort. 

Musicians, actors, and artists can extend their abilities and enhance their creativity. Athletes and Dancers can refine their skills, improve their efficiency and keep their bodies healthy for the long haul.

Roll your spine healthy, strengthen yourself by connecting to your center (hara / tan tien), where the gut instinct lies. The Hawaiians call this place na’au where the wisdom of your body, mind, and spirit unifies.

We will do movements lessons again with small and subtle movements, as on Saturday, and will do more rolling on Sunday. 

All of us need to be able to easily roll – minimally to get in and out of bed and our cars. As babies we learned to roll before we could sit or stand. Rolling is a critical skill in connecting our body and limbs again back to the center where it all started. Through gentle, mindful rolling, we will re-activate our powerful coordination abilities. These rolling lessons are executed again slowly, gradually developing step by step, so all ability levels can participate.  For some, the movement can be bigger, less meditative and more playful. 

Rolling movements bring us back into our proverbial ‘happy place’, and students often start laughing and giggling! Reorganizing the center often frees up the neck, and discomfort in back and neck can disappear.

You won’t believe how much better you will feel by the end of this weekend of workshops! See Saturday workshop.  Both days are a perfect combination and are built to complement each other. If time does not permit you to do both, you may take them separately.

In this Feldenkrais®/SmartMoves Weekend Workshop on February 8 & 9, we learn to dwell in the Alpha state where we are most open to new learnings. Our nervous system gets the chance to reset.

In Saturday’s workshop, we will work with the subtle movements of tongue, eyes, jaw and breathing. The subtleness of movement – executed slowly, minimally and with full awareness – is the best way to undo a lot of chronic tension especially in face, neck and back. We use imagination and mind/body connection, enhancing our neuroplasticity.

The last lessons of Saturday’s workshop will be an easy rolling lesson that realigns the entire spine, shoulder girdle and hips and brings you into your center.

The world we live in is not subtle: we are pushing and ‘efforting’, sometimes for years without a break. That lifestyle costs us dearly. We deplete our adrenal glands’ contents and open the door to many illnesses. After a while we do not even know how to rest: we sink exhausted into bed and wake up exhausted. Added to our daily stress, we tend to push our bodies in sport, workout classes, dance or even in yoga, as we do not remember how to be subtle in inhabiting our bodies.

This workshop invites you to cultivate small, peaceful movement that is restorative and replenishing. As you develop greater awareness through movement, you can find new movement possibilities and experience ‘Aha!’ moments about yourself and life.

You won’t believe how much better you will feel by the end of this weekend of workshops! Sunday workshop. Both days are a perfect combination and are built to complement each other. If time does not permit you to do both, you may take them separately.
