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.

The stomach muscles can only be working well if the back muscles are released and vice versa. There is a much more effective way to get all of your stomach muscles to work together smoothly than just doing sit ups.
Dr Feldenkrais who was a black belt judoka who knew a lot about a strong core or to say it more accurately how to use his core effectively as an accomplished Martial Artist. He developed many Feldenkrais lessons to have a functional sense of center and core power that nowadays so many people are looking for.
As always in the Feldenkrais Method this is not only a power on the physical level but also an inert sense of centeredness and inner strength.

A strong core starts with a functional, powerful pelvic floor. The pelvic floor facilitates many of our basic life functions as varied as digestion, elimination, reproduction and breathing. Improvement starts with awareness. The movement of the pelvic floor is subtle, and yet it is possible for everyone to feel its effect. Once you can feel the pelvic floor muscles working, you can learn greater control, both in relaxing and contracting. 

This workshop will help you to discover how to sense and contract the pelvic floor in all directions combined with easy movements of the whole body. The pelvic floor also supports the alignment of the spine. It is like the lower diaphragm in the trunk: if tonified it will act like a trampoline pushing upwards. 

From the pelvic floor we will move on to address the pelvis and lower back. If the pelvis is strong and well used it can relax the back muscles and stop muscular fatigue and pain in the back.

This workshop is an ideal preparation for the next day’s theme, but can also be taken by itself!

A revolutionary way to move your mind and body into alignment for complete wellness

Come and experience how to come into alignment on all levels, rid yourself of pain, tension and discomfort and start your vibrant life 2019. On a physical level you sense more mobility in your joints, less tension in your neck and lower back, and a longer, more upright stance. You clarify your inner image of your movement, recognizing old movement patterns that no longer serve you, and you learn to move more efficiently, either for healing and or for increasing your skill level.

Dr. Feldenkrais understood 50 yrs ago what recent research is confirming about the neuroplasticity of the brain. Instead of merely exercising, with the Feldenkrais technique we use our higher brain capacity to increase our awareness through this very gentle practice.

Eva is just returning from her trip to Europe where she has been teaching several week-long programs and is excited to offer her expertise in Honolulu again. When she teaches she draws from her long experience working with thousands of people of all ages and walks of life.

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.

Eva  (Honolulu/ Cologne) practices the path of embodying the sacred through conscious movement and dance. Originally a professional trained dancer who performed and made her own evening length dance pieces she ultimately felt that teaching will 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 80ies and 90ties she created Wave-Continuum. This beautiful healing movement practice opens the heart and connects the mover to the wisdom of life embedded in our fluid system of out cells and the universe. Undulating movement meditation, breath and sound bring this ancient awareness to the surface of our consciousness.

This workshop is for anyone who wants to safely stand on their head. Feel the the benefits of being upside down, including a freer neck and greater space between the vertebrae for a more flexible spine, as well as lowered anxiety and improved blood flow to the brain. This workshop can assist yoga students, dancers, and martial artists in their practices. Dr. Feldenkrais taught thousands of people through his method to stand safely on the head, his most famous student being Ben Gurion, the founder of Israel.  The process cured him of a crippling back ache. The smartness of the Feldenkrais Method introduces a safe method to learn to stand on your head and improve your neck and back.

Eyes are important for more than seeing and jaw troubles can be dealt with!  This workshop helps to improve your vision and gives you the practical knowledge and skills to alleviate suffering from jaw pain or dysfunction, which is often linked to seemingly unrelated challenges, including migraine headaches and eye strain. When we use our eyes properly and release our jaw, our neck improves and even shoulder pain can subside.

The by-products of this form of training include a body at ease, efficient breathing and a quiet clear mind. Movements feel fluid.

Because the movement of our eyes organizes the movements of our body, our vision impacts and interacts with every movement we make throughout our whole body, as well as how we feel and think.

Vision is the primary sense through which we experience the world. Unfortunately, the quality and clarity of our vision can weaken and degrade over time or we have developed bad habits of tension already early on. However, through easy and gentle movements as prescribed in the Feldenkrais Method, we can learn to recognize and eliminate many of the most common habits that interfere with easy, effortless vision and good spinal organization.  We can also learn new skills that transform the use of our eyes, helping us to see more clearly.

As our thoughts move busily here and there, our eyes respond and move busily here and there. When our neck and posture is tight and tense, our eyes will be tight and tense. When our breathing is held or frozen, our eyes will be held and fixed. When our jaw is tight our eyes and neck are tight. As above so below: if the jaw is tight the pelvis and iliac sacral joint tends to be tight.

This Intensive workshop is a wonderful opportunity to get informed and learn to release tension by effortless movements that are done lying down and Tai Chi master Yan Yang, from New York City called ‘Lying down Qigong’!  With these wonderful exercises people have healed severe vision problems, as in the case of Toronto based Feldenkrais Practitioner David Webber http://www.feldenkraiscentre.com/pdfs/DWebberArticle.pdf
