Seldan Edwards, the headmaster of the private school I taught at after graduating from college, passed this advice on to me early in my career.  I had all kinds of new ideas for the drama classes I was teaching, things the school had never done before, things that might have seemed a bit risky to an institution whose reputation for classic, quality education went back nearly a century. Yet Selden did his best to accommodate my requests, seeing my enthusiasm and best intentions. He taught me a lot with his response.

Saying yes to something new allows us to change and grow, keeping pace with shifting circumstances, evolving ideas, and different life perspectives. That very willingness to go with life’s flow is healthy. It cultivates our resilience, braves us to face the unknown, to take risks, to potentially fail, then to learn, and try again.

When someone asks something of us that challenges the way things have always been done, or the way we were planning to do that thing, we may feel tempted to put up resistance. Even considering the possibility of saying yes renders us mentally and emotionally more flexible. On the physical plane, we’re less inclined to go into a stress response to change. And spiritually we’re more porous to light flooding through – perhaps from unexpected sources. This open stance can only make us healthier as whole human beings.

Good for: MD’s, RN’s, DO’s, OT’s, LMT’s, PT’s, NP’s, professionals working with people in pain, children, the disabled or the aged.

Read this remarkable story:  “The Brain’s Way of Healing: Remarkable Discoveries and Recoveries From the Frontiers of Neuroplasticity”

 

Dr. Feldenkrais was intimately acquainted with the workings of our nervous system and anatomical structure. He developed a system of moving the body in gentle, non-threatening ways that re-educate the nervous system so that our intent and our action will be concurrent. Muscle and brain functions can be restored. In some cases, the Feldenkrais Method leads the student/client/patient through performing movement on their own; in other cases the Feldenkrais practitioner works hands-on. Through gentle touch and careful, slow movements, the nervous system is informed, mostly non-verbally, on how to coordinate movement more functionally. The results include healthier movement habits and possibilities, reduction of pain and inflammation, and increased awareness of body and self – among many other benefits.

 

jerrymosheMoshe Feldenkrais studied how children learn and move. Obviously people make the biggest learning steps in the beginning of their lives. It is in the time when children are allowed to learn organically before they go to school. After examining organic learning Dr. Feldenkrais incorporated the principles of organic learning into his method. This workshop will shed light on organic learning and movement patterns associated with it. This is an experiential workshop! Dress comfortably for movement. Bring 2 towels. Mats available! This is an Intro into a 12-month Feldenkrais Intensive for Professionals.

Freedom for Neck and Shoulders, Arms and Hands

 

In this workshop, you learn movement lessons that will help you to free your neck, get rid of pain and benefit your shoulders, arms, hands and entire posture.

The neck is like a bottleneck between our brain and our torso. Unfortunately that is where we carry around lots of tension and injuries making that narrow place even narrower. That results in many unpleasant, painful and even dangerous conditions. If we can soften and heal there we may have a whole different outlook on our life. These Feldenkrais movements are easy to do and good for all age groups (from 9 to 99) and most medical conditions.

Turning freely around your Axis: Neck & Spine Mobility, Better Vision

The benefits of this seminar are better eyesight, memory enhancement, good posture and more mobility in your neck and entire spine. There is an intimate relationship between eyes, neck and spine: The eyes organize the spine. They can help it to turn better and become more elongated. Eyes do not have to deteriorate when you get older. Glasses are not the cure for bad vision; it is merely a good crutch. If your eyes are not as good as they should be, you can change that with these wonderful Feldenkrais eye lessons.

From long Neck to stable Sacrum: Free Spinal Function

You learn to balance the curves in your spine. Through mobilization of all the vertebrae you will find better posture, health and healing for the bones, stability and mobility.

The Atlas and the Sacrum have a special relationship. The sacrum is one of the most fascinating bones in the body. The sacrum is literally the middle of the person, the center and originating point for the energy which ascends and descends through the spine. The sacrum is the lower pole of the cerebrospinal system. It conveys the greatest energy charge in the spine, so it is very important to have the sacrum well centered and stable!

 

malu_evageuekeEva Geueke studied Continuum Movement with founder Emily Conrad and S. Harper for many years. She loves teaching Wave Continuum, a spin of Continuum Movement, as it brings her and her fellow movement surfers into a very special heart opening loving creative state.

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. Eva also teaches Contemporary Dance, Qigong-Universal Tao of Mantak Chia, and is a IAO healer.

The Feldenkrais Method is a wonderful and potent method to rebalance, realign and heal areas in our movement coordination. The method is slow-moving, very gentle, and only requires a curiosity about our own movement habits. Some of those habits are causing limitations, pain, inflammation and over-exertion. We’ve learned certain unhealthy habitual movements and postures so long ago that we may no longer recognize them or know that we can actually change our old patterns. With the Feldenkrais Method we can recognize those hindering habits and find better ways of moving that are healthy, strengthening and pain free. This does not only happen on the physical plane but also ripples out into the rest of ones life
