The Whole Picture: Spinal Mobility & Better Vision – Feldenkrais Workshop Weekend – Part 1

October 19 @ 1:30 pm - 4:00 pm

The 2 days of Feldenkrais/ SmartMoves lessons aim to align your spine, free your neck and arms and help your precious eyes to stay healthy and clear. These Feldenkrais movements are easy to do and good for all age groups (from 9 to 99) and most medical conditions.

The two workshops build upon each other, yet if it is not possible to attend both days, you may take just one. Please note that Sunday’s workshop starts earlier than Saturday’s.

Part 1: Turning freely around your Axis: Neck, Better Vision

Saturday, October 19, 2019  

1:30-4 pm

What are you actually doing for your eyes? Eyes are so vital to our everyday functioning, let’s help them out.

The benefits of this workshop include better eyesight, memory enhancement, good posture and increased 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 we age as much as we might think. If your eyes are not as good as they should be, you can change that with these wonderful Feldenkrais eye lessons. 

Part 2: Freedom for Neck, Spine, and Shoulders

Sunday, Oct 20, 2019

12:30-4 pm 

In this workshop, we continue improving our vision. You also learn movement lessons to free your neck, get rid of pain and benefit your shoulders, arms and entire posture. 

The neck is like a bottleneck between our brain and our torso. Here, where we carry around lots of tension and injuries, we can constrict this narrow place even more, resulting in many unpleasant, painful and even dangerous conditions. If we can soften and heal in our neck connected to our shoulders, arms and the rest of our spine, we generate a whole different outlook on our life. 

Price:
Single Workshop $69
Workshop Weekend $120

WaveContinuum: Water is Life…And so is Movement! with Eva Alewa Geueke

October 19 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm

 

Evoke the healing power of water through sound, breath and spiral movement, delving into the wisdom of “your inner biology”. Here we invite our inner waters to penetrate and saturate all the different layers of ourselves: muscles, connective tissue, organs and cells.

In this workshop you will learn to:
– Restructure your movement and reverse aging.
– Evoke the fluids and spark electricity in the body to heal and multiply healthy cells.
– Explore your beauty, strength and creativity through wave movement and sound.
– Tap into the wisdom that lies inside of the Body’s fluid system.

With this practice:
– the spine aligns, joints open,
– muscles lengthen and strengthen,
– heart opens, mind calms, wisdom flows and spirit soars.

Life flows in the healing energy of spiral movement, breath and sound! Moving with love and awareness we create balance in the body between the Water and Earth elements.

Eva Alewa Geueke

Eva (Honolulu / Cologne) practices the path of embodying the sacred through conscious movement and dance. Originally a professional 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 80ies and 90ties she created Wave-Continuum. This beautiful healing movement practice opens the heart and connects the mover to the wisdom of life embedded in our fluid system of out cells and the universe. Undulating movement meditation, breath and sound bring this ancient awareness to the surface of 

 

 

WaveContinuum is an invitation to experience life as Movement. This spontaneous, organic dance is full of surprises and reaches far above the movement possibilities commonly known to us. We use the supple vibrations of sound and breath to open muscle tissue and joints. Through this softening we invoke rippling waves into our torso, pelvis and limbs. These oceanic undulations can be experienced as a kind of love. We become more resonant, open and capable of communion with all life. In the natural beauty of your movement, you can sense your organism finding itself. From there you take off to dance freely in your flow.

 

 

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.
