Classes, workshops and one on one (hands-on sessions) in Honolulu (USA) and Germany
Aloha, When we actually say Aloha or Hawai’i with the correct ha pronunciation, we are not only saying something nice to someone, we actually talk from our heart and we do help our heart as well. That HA sound is the Healing sound of the heart in Mantak Chia’s Universal Tao Qigong. As we can see in Hula the hands do communicate so gracefully from the heart: the hands, healing and heart have all that HA in the word. The heart and Pericard meridian are running through the arms and hands… These days we may need a lot of healing for the heart and we need to take heart and hear the truth in our heart. This got me to think of offering the workshop below. All workshops and classes are online through zoom, which you can download easily for free.

THE FELDENKRAIS METHOD® created by Dr Moshé Feldenkrais (1904–1984) aims to reduce pain or limitations in movement and to improve function in all areas of one's life. By increasing students' awareness of themselves and expanding movement repertoire and quality through smart safe and gentle movement choices, general well being is increased. The method can be adapted work for all ages from babies to the elderly, from people with acute pain to athletes, musicians and dancers who just want to perform better and prevent injuries.
THE FELDENKRAIS METHOD® looks at limiting habits that are causing pain, inflammation, over-exertion, poor performance and injury. Physical difficulties or limitations are seen, from the Feldenkrais perspective, as the result of either incomplete learning or trauma that can lead to dysfunctional habit patterns.
With the Feldenkrais Method® we learn to recognize those hindering habits and find better ways of moving that are healthy, efficient, pain free and enjoyable. One of the underlying understandings of this method is that thinking is movement as well. As thinking, emotions and feelings are woven together and will always express in movement, an authentic change in movement patterns will ripple out into the rest of ones' life.
The founder, Dr Moshe Feldenkrais D.Sc., utilized his background in physics, mechanical engineering and judo to develop a system with an unusual melding of biomechanics, motor development, psychology and martial arts.
THE FELDENKRAIS METHOD® has achieved international recognition for its demonstrated ability to improve posture, flexibility, coordination, self-image and to alleviate muscular tension and pain. it is also highly successful with brain damage issues from CP to MS to Strokes. It consists of two compelling and versatile applications: Awareness Through Movement®, done in groups and Functional Integration®, an individualised hands-on practice.
