Letter from the Director, by Renée Tillotson

As a kid, I always loved big ideas. Maybe all kids do. Did you? I recall coming across our rambunctious 5-year-old son sitting still, alone in the middle of a play day, on top of his bunk bed. “Whatja thinkin’ about, Shankar?” I asked. “Infinity,’ he startlingly replied. For me, Still & Moving Center is becoming a place, more and more, where large-hearted, deep thinking takes place, as well as fabulous physical activities..

Imagine ideas giving the mind a workout, just as play, calisthenics, dance, etc. exercise the body. Little Renée also adored her time on the playground. Pumping back and forth on a swing, to the very top of each arc, is akin to viewing the world from a broad sweep of perspectives, from the top extreme to the opposite extreme. Hopscotch requires a light-footed agility, similar to mental agility in the face of new facts. Swinging from ring to ring on the monkey bars involves a shoulder motion called brachiation, suggesting the looseness with which we can release fixed points of view and move onward. Jumping rope strengthens our base – feet, ankles, knees, legs and hips – requiring steadiness, timing, and repeated grounding. The see-saw challenges our sense of balance. The metal push merry-go-round teaches us that going to the center gives us the still point, while going to the edge whirls us wildly through space. Down the slide requires letting go, enjoying the ride!

So, to me, exercising the mind goes hand in hand with exercising the body for whole health as a human being. I’ve been on a quest to find both.

As a bird longs to be on the wing in the open sky, I crave to live in the wide world of thought. From my earliest times, I’d quietly hang on the outskirts of adult conversations, listening for ideas that would carry my mind to broader perspectives. And I read a lot. I mean, I ate up books. One of my favorites was a big book on World Religions. That fascinated me with many ways of explaining how the world began and why we were here. 

Of course every child loves stories. A story drew me in like a spider wrapping up a fly. Why is that? I think stories help us make sense of the world. We can see how the causes people set into motion play out into logical – even if surprising – results. Look how Scrooge in Charles Dickens’ Christmas Carol comes to see how his life so far has damaged others, and finally chooses to utterly redeem himself from his tight, mean, miserly life to one of full-hearted generosity. Such stories teach that transformation is possible!

Watching sad news on black and white television made me deeply wonder how such terrible things could happen, and how we could make the world a more livable place for everyone. Surely you had events in your childhood that led you to similar questions. Remember?

My parents were part of the World Federalist movement, and I especially liked listening to their discussions with those friends. I’m just learning now that famous advocates of World Federalism include Albert Einstein, Mahatma Gandhi, Martin Luther King Jr., Albert Camus and Winston Churchill. Wow! No wonder I was interested in THOSE conversations! World Federalism started during and after World War II, as a way a way to avoid future wars.

I devoured fantasy and science fiction books that envisioned worlds that COULD BE. “A Wrinkle in Time” captivated my imagination: three youngsters “on a journey through space and time, from universe to universe, as they endeavor to save [their] father and the world…. The novel wrestles with questions of spirituality and purpose, as the characters are often thrown into conflicts of love, divinity, and goodness,” per Wikipedia. Yep, that’s my kind of book!

One day, probably when I was home buried in a book and all the other kids on the block were outside playing – my mom suggested that I might want to make some more friends. I responded, “My books are my friends, and when I want more people friends, I’ll go out and make some.”

By 7th grade I left my bookworm habits behind, but you know, I didn’t really know who I was looking for. I could not have put into words, “I’m looking for friends with big ideas for the world.”  By the time I got to college, I was finally able to find people like that, including my now husband Cliff.

At UC Santa Barbara. I heard about a Professor Raghavan Iyer, as an amazing speaker who always wore a red or orange or gold colored shirt to class. I recall sitting in the big lecture hall next to Cliff, waiting for the professor, when suddenly a small-statured Indian man, wearing – yes – a deep orange shirt under his dark jacket, came striding down the aisle. As he began speaking, I was transfixed.

The ideas that streamed non-stop out of Professor Iyer’s mouth for the next hour filled every nook and cranny of my mind… and then kept pushing it out farther and farther. The topic was something about politics, religions and literature… I can no longer recall the subject matter – only that these were stupendous ideas about the human race, its problems and its possibilities. My note-taking hand cramped trying to keep up with his full flood of remarkable notions from East and West, ancient times and modern headlines. But my hand cramp was nothing compared to the panting satisfaction that my mind and heart felt bathing in his colossal vision of a possible world that we – those of us sitting there in that very hall – could bring into being.

When Professor Iyer’s soaring lecture finally touched down and came to a close, a breathless pause ensued, then every person in the hall sprang to their feet and burst into a long, standing ovation. And for the next three years that I took Professor Iyer’s classes, I experienced all of our eyes brighten, our hearts swell, and our minds sail on the winds of his ideas for a more intelligent, compassionate world. 

Soon Cliff found out that Professor Iyer, with a number of his students, were restoring an old Victorian house in downtown Santa Barbara to create something called the Institute of World Culture. Danson from Kenya, Ingrid from Germany, Carl from Quaker country in Pennsylvania, and all manner of other idealistic people worked through the weeknights and over their weekends to restore the house to the stately beauty the Institute deserved. 

On July 4, 1976, the Institute of World Culture opened with the Declaration of INTERdependence! I include that Declaration below in Word to the Wise. From then on, Cliff and I feasted on endless programs devoted to lifelong learning, from Mozart’s music, to Ramunagen’s mathematics, to Vandanava Shiva’s seed banking, to Shakespeare’s play the Tempest, to how saving the wolves transformed Yellowstone National Park. And most of the programs were put on by the members themselves, learning about and presenting the subject matter. We also received remarkable visiting presenters, such as His Holiness, the 14th Dalai Lama.

Moving to the islands in 2002, I missed the Institute’s programs and conversations – my life of the mind. However, Cliff and I found so much richness in the Hawaiian culture, it hugely helped the transition. Cliff dove into paddling Hawaiian canoes, encountering the legendary Hawaiian kupuna (elder) Nappy Napoleon. And thank my lucky stars, I met kumu Mālia Helelā, who so graciously shares her tradition through hula, ōlelo (language), history, love of the ‘aina (land), and the generous heart of aloha.

Fortunately, too, I became better acquainted with a vast range of movement practices from around the world through Still & Moving Center. In addition to hula from the islands, we had Bharata Natyam dancing, Bollywood and yoga all from India. Tai Chi came from China and Qigong came from Korea. Israel gave us Feldenkrais, and we got belly dance from both Egypt and Turkey… and the list just keeps growing – like the new ELDOA from France. We are essentially creating a world university of mindful movement. And we have always kept conversation going through our weekly Satsang centered on our Still & Moving Center Almanac of inspirational quotes from around the globe.

I still keenly missed our wide-ranging programs and conversations at the Institute of World Culture. 

With the pandemic came a pause, a pivotal turning point, and something shifted. Suddenly, at the time of our 9th birthday, Still & Moving Center went online, and went global. Overnight, our friends from across the map could join our classes without flying to Hawaii. I realized, “This is our chance at Still & Moving Center to cultivate the life of the mind!”

Our banquet table for the mind grew more plentiful. All our meditative offerings are free of charge and online. We now provide two seated meditation sessions a week. Our Sunday Satsang gathering is now frequented by off-island participants for a fuller diversity of viewpoints. On Fathers Day, for example, we talked about how the living practice of fatherhood has evolved over the generations in Japan, the Philippines and the U.S.

Our ‘Gems from the Wisdom Tradition – a Conversation Circle’, an online weekly gathering, launched in April with 14 participants from various islands, states and countries, all talking about fascinating, make-a-difference ideas. Some of our friends from the Institute of World Culture attended, too! Yay!  Last week at Gems, kumu Maliā approached the Buddhist topic of Right Speech by addressing the Hawaiian proverb:“I ka ʻŌlelo no ke Ola” – In the Language there is Life, complete with chanting in Hawaiian. And I loved hearing the ancient Greek story of Prometheus stealing fire from the gods on Mount Olympus for humanity – hearing that fire in fact represents the light of the mind, which, like a candle, can be shared over and over, illuminating the darkness, without ever being diminished itself. Wonderful stuff. My body and mind are now both satisfied now!

Ironically, I spent a quarter century after college pursuing the life of the mind without much physical exercise at all, until I started practicing Nia and moved to Hawaii in 2002. Through Nia and the moving practices at Still & Moving Center, I had learned an important lesson. So I had slated myself in 2020 to go to San Diego, Brazil and the Ukraine to give talks on the Joy of movement, I wanted to convince some rather sedentary, philosophical groups to get up and move their bodies if they really wanted to have healthy minds.

And instead I’m finding myself bringing more of the life of the mind to a place where people love to move. Don’t you just love it?!?

And there’s more to come! AHHHHHH…………

Rediscover your innate capacity for effortless, organic, efficient, and graceful movement. Some students find themselves freed of years of pain that they thought they would live with forever. Feldenkrais “Awareness through Movement” lessons consist of gentle movement sequences that can eventually become more complex as you progress. After attending the classes for a while, you will find improved flexibility and breathing, coordination and balance. No prior experience necessary.

Feldenkrais® is based on a sophisticated understanding of the human nervous system that helps students continuously improve their functioning in all areas of life. This method uses learning in the way that babies learn: through exploring movement and sensing the environment, in order to get whatever it is we most want out of life.  For a baby that may be reaching for a toy and bringing it to the mouth, but for an adult, that may be learning to play a sport better, becoming a better actor or dancer, living a pain-free life, increasing productivity at work, or finding harmony at home.  Many students of the Feldenkrais® Method find their physical and non-physical problems spontaneously disappearing as they increase their self-awareness.

 

Erica Trivett

Erica knows the body well, both from her own physical practices as a dancer and from her training and experience helping other bodies heal with Feldenkrais Method® and Osteopathy. Whether in class or in a treatment session, you’re in good hands with Erica.

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.

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.

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

 

The full hour dedicated to ELDOA postures and stretching enhances the many possible benefits including:

  • Normalize Disc Bulges
  • Reduced Degrees of Scoliosis
  • Increased Flexibility
  • Improved Muscle Performance and Tone
  • Normalization of Visceral Function
  • Reduced Stress
  • Injury Recovery and Prevention
  • Reduced Joint Inflammation and Arthrosis
  • Delayed Disc Degeneration
  • Increased Disc Hydration
  • Increased Blood Flow
  • Improved Posture
  • Relief of Chronic and Acute Back Pain
  • Relief of Neck and Shoulder Tension
  • Improved Awareness and Overall Wellbeing
  • Improved Recovery Time for Sports and Training
  • Reduced Forward Head Posture

 

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.

Heart, Vagus Nerve, Face & Gut Connection

On Sunday we continue strengthening the heart while freeing the neck, the face, jaw and tongue. With Feldenkrais/SmartMoves lessons we may take years off our faces, make our smile more radiant and our mouth more spacious. Many invisible benefits will become apparent from within.

As highly evolved beings, we possess a very adaptive vagus nerve that connects the brain and its busy activities with our gut. How does it do that? Through the heart! As the longest nerve in our body, the vagus nerve integrates the thoughts of the mind – as they play upon our facial expressions and in our voice – with that “gut feeling” by GOING THROUGH THE HEART! We find that a strong heart center integrates the ideas and sociability of the mind with instinctive information that comes from the gut. This allows us to adapt and self-regulate in ways that reptiles, for example, cannot do, being confined to instinct only. 

This workshop seeks to integrate the work of Dr. Moshe Feldenkrais – an early pioneer of neuroplasticity, who worked wonders on human health via the mind-body connection through the nervous system – with Dr Stephen Porges’ Polyvagal theory, on the vagus nerve connecting our higher and lower centers:the Neuroscience of Polarisation https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vmkG5l7CaGw) Additionally, Chinese medicine teaches that the tongue has an intimate connection with both the jaw and the heart.

To find practical applications for improving your health and strengthening your heart, your teacher Eva Geueke draws from her decades of experience as a Feldenkrais practitioner, as well as her extensive work in Mantac Chia’s Qigong practice and Emily Conrad’s Continuum practice.

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.

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.
