Aloha Kakou,

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. Still and Moving Center has a tech person working in the back ground to help you with difficulty. Once you sign up for the class the link will be send to you. 

I continue teaching 5 classes a week Monday 4.15pm, Tuesday 8.30am Qigong, Wednesday 5.15pm, Thursday & Friday 9.30am and Saturday 11am. Just sign in at www.stillandmovingcenter.com.

Miraculous Communication between Heart, Brain, Face and Gut: a WaveContinuum Workshop – 

LIVE ONLINE, INTERACTIVE 

June 5 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm

$49 Shoestring Budget Price: $32 

Sign up now! 

 

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.

Easy Breathing with Tension Relief for Neck & Back: Feldenkrais©/SmartMoves Workshop – 

LIVE ONLINE, INTERACTIVE 

June 6 @ 3:30 pm - 6:00 pm HST

$49  

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.

Easy Breathing with Back-Rolling to Health:  Feldenkrais©/SmartMoves Workshop – LIVE ONLINE, INTERACTIVE with Eva Geueke

June 7 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm

Sign up now! 

 

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.

 

Eva Alewa Geueke

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.

I have taken 2 workshops with Eva and she is a wonderful instructor/therapist. These classes are very informative and have helped me tremendously in my knowledge of body mechanics and movement and making healing connections in my body. – Ruth

I loved Eva’s Feldenkrais class! My shoulder felt stiff and sore for almost a month. With just a few simple and gentle movements it was feeling so much better! My spine was stretched out and my feet were more evenly holding my body weight. I plan to take more classes in near future.  Thank you Eva. You are Excellent!!! – Diane

I like the variety of classes offered, and the Center’s focus on the mind-body-spirit connection. I particularly enjoy Eva Geueke’s Feldenkrais classes. The facilities are beautiful, and everyone is so warm and welcoming to students and guests. – John

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.

Feldenkrais for Children and Babies:

Early intervention can save a life-time of difficulties for the child, and wear and tear on the whole family system. It is never too late to change the course of a child’s inadequate development, whether physical or emotional. The earlier the intervention, the better the outcome, but the brain remains remarkably adaptable throughout childhood. If you are concerned about even subtle difficulties your child is experiencing we may be able to offer a surprisingly simple solution.
