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.

Are you ready to be truly loving with yourself? With sound, breath, and fluid, free, wave-like motion, you can meet yourself in a way you might never have experienced before. In Wave Continuum we use sounds and spiral movement to warm up. Once we enter our dance jam, we can move either on our own or in a shared dance with others.

Deep authentic healing happens through undulating movement, meditation, breath and sound in Wave Continuum. This evokes ancient wisdom that lies in our fluid system and cells and brings it to the surface of our consciousness.

Learn to listen for the authentic enfoldment of movement, the wisdom of your body, muscles, connective tissue, organs, cells and spirit, the meeting of water and the spark of fire. This is the wonderful practice of creation. We are all longing for that connection, and when we finally make it, our heart opens and may find deep joy.

The founder of Continuum movement, Emily Conrad passed away in 2014. Like Gabrielle Roth of 5Rhythms, Emily was a giant in the movement-somatic-healing-dance community. Her delightfully deep and healing work lives on in the teachings of those like Eva Geueke, who studied with her closely and long enough to be able to pass it on.

 

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 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 80’s and 90’s she 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.

By giving our inner world a physical expression within a space of love, freedom and acceptance, we become aware of stagnant structures, limited belief systems and held back emotions. We put healing and transformation into motion as we awaken our body’s intelligence and open to vitality, creativity, and our divine essence. In this workshop we can have a deep experience with ourselves, each other and with spirit, as well as walk away with tools to integrate and continue healing in our everyday life. Movement Meditation can wash away mental, spiritual, and physical tension and provide ways to live from our truer self.  All movement levels welcome.
