You will leave with practical tips to heal yourself from any dis-ease in the body, including acupressure. We will also do a guided relaxation exercise to help you tap into your unique intuition for healing.

With Marma therapy we harmonize our prana (primary vitality) in the physical body, the most direct method available to enhance health and longevity, and for the treatment of a variety of disorders. Energy points (marma) range in size, from the large area at the navel, to the smaller center at the sole of the feet. We will work with Aroma therapy, applying specific aromatic oils to the marma, learning to treat headaches,insomnia, digestive problems, inflammation and stagnation/congestion.

This is an interactive workshop, combining yoga poses (asana), breath work (pranayama), acupressure and gentle massage. We will close with a guided relaxation moving through the eighteen yogic pranic control points, creating balance and vitality. No prior yoga knowledge is necessary, just bring your curiosity. Please wear comfortable, loose-fitting clothing.

Feb 14: Improve Pelvic Floor, Pelvic Power and Hip Joints!

Feb 21: Diaphragm, Easy Breathing & Neck Tension Relief!

Feb 28: Improve Eyesight, Atlas and 7th Cervical Vertebrae!

Feb 28 WORKSHOP DETAILS: Eyes are precious and important to our wellbeing. The muscles that move the eyes interconnect with the neck. With stress and age, those muscles tend to harden, diminishing the eyes’ ability to look near and far. These wonderful Feldenkrais lessons can change that. These 3 hours are a well-invested time to improve your eyes and detangle your neck. The 7th cervical vertebra, lowest in the neck, will be taught to ease the tension that it carries around. The atlas vertebra on which the head rests, can find its proper, healthy place and co-work with your eyes. This area is the opening to the brain stem and needs to move and breath. You will leave feeling brighter, more relaxed and with clearer vision. Some of these Feldenkrais movements can be easily repeated at home. Feel free to bring pen and paper to take notes!

GROWING  YOUNGER WITH FELDENKRAIS

What really makes a person old ?  Is it wrinkles or is it the way you think and move ? Aging is a habit of tension and stressful responses that are learned and practiced unconsciously every day. The Feldenkrais Method works on the premise that it is the brain that organizes movement.  We will explore new strategies and unlearn some of those habits, learn to work smarter rather than harder with improved sensitvity and awareness. As a result you can then move with new vitality and ease and appear much younger than your chronological age.    

May 17 – Comfortable Sitting and turning in Chair, what a relief for the Neck, Shoulders, Back and Hips                       

Some people have a static idea of how to sit in a chair. Sitting on a chair can create lots of pressure on  the spine and discs and cause pain in the Back, Neck and Shoulders.     We will find  new ways of how to relate to a chair  which will help   you to sit more dynamically, sit taller in an easy and relaxed way.  Of course we will also do lessons on the floor !!!

May 24 – Joy of Walking 

You see a person at a distance, can’t recognize the face but you know who the person is by the way the walk.  Walking is a habit. Have you ever worn out a shoe or a sock more than the other parts ? You will learn to walk with many parts of your feet and discover the relationship to the way you habitually move your hips, knees back and your upper body. You’ll experience better balance and the joy of a more graceful, youthful walk . 

May 31 – Moving into Relaxation and Finding More Restful Sleep                                                                                   

Through very easy Movements you will find a pleasureable and comfortable way of releasing excess tension and stress and learn to take the path of least resistance to Relaxation and Restful Sleep.  

Brigette KawakamiBrigitte (Bebe) Kawakami was born in Austria, and grew up in a family where alpine hiking and downhill skiing were part of the physically active lifestyle. In 1976, Bebe came to the US, and eventually to Hawaii where she came to live and married a Hawaii born local.

Here in Hawaii, Brigitte was once hit by a car crossing the street and tossed in the air. She had back pains for over 25 years and tried Rolfing, chiropractic care, Pilates, yoga, and shiatsu massage…all helped, but only for a few days and the pain always came back.

Bebe discovered the Feldenkrais method with Eve Strauss in Honolulu and experienced relief. This led to further study and training with Jerry Karzen in Maui, and after practicing Feldenkrais for 8 months she was pain free. Her studies continued at the main Feldenkrais Institute in Vienna, Austria with Jeremy Krauss, Luci and Carl Ginsberg, and Miriam Pfeiffer, and she is now more agile than she was even as a child.

Bebe is a now a Guild Certified Feldenkrais ® teacher and is dedicated and passionate about the Feldenkrais method, and being a former kindergarten teacher, enjoys teaching ATM (Awareness Through Movement) lessons and One on One FI (Functional Integration) lessons.
