Using tools from Pilates, ELDOA and Yoga … Marla will add to your personal tool box giving you the tools to help keep your spine feeling healthy and strong.

Lower back pain is an uncomfortable and often debilitating condition that many people deal with on a daily basis. The ELDOA can effectively alleviate and over time help fix acute and chronic back pain. ELDOA exercises, when done on a regular basis, can help offset many of the risk factors that can cause degeneration and herniation of the intervertebral discs. 

The flexibility you gain from the myofascial stretches can help improve your joint mobility, and overall health. As the quality of your tissue improves, you’ll find that you have better posture, greater range of motion, that you are able to perform tasks with greater ease, and you’ll suffer fewer injuries.

What Marla’s students are saying:

“Marla has an incredible understanding of the body as well as the generosity and intelligence to communicate her knowledge in a way that can be shared with others.”

  • Lesley Telford

“Marla is a great instructor and an amazing, kind person. I attend both her yoga and Eldoa classes. I particularly like the unique stretches and posture focus Marla has for my computer neck!”

  • Jeff Appelbe

“As a chiropractor, with a broken lumbar vertebra, I’m very picky about who I let treat my body or provide me with exercises. When I heard about Marla’s ELDOA in Vancouver, I had to check it out. Apparently, Tiger Woods has used this technique to help him with his spine, so it had to be valuable, right? Right. Marla is very professional, knows her functional anatomy, and is an excellent teacher. Even with my 20 years in practice, she taught this old dog some new tricks! I have already recommended a few clients to her classes, and they are getting a lot of benefits too. Great complement to chiropractic care.”

Marla Waal

Marla was a professional dancer, trained in classical ballet among other styles. Based out of Montreal, then later Chicago, she travelled the globe performing and teaching. In 1998 she began to study various styles of yoga, from extremely gentle restorative, to more vigorous Ashtanga. Marla then studied Pilates with Diane Miller, Dynamic Anatomy with Eric Franklin, ELDOA Method created by Guy Voyer and more recently Buteyko Breathing created by Russian Doctor Konstantin Buteyko.

Marla is passionate about helping people feel more free and strong in their bodies by educating and directing them to learn through practice, and by sharing tools that promote independence.  She lives in beautiful Vancouver, BC, Canada with her two children. If you are in Vancouver and would like to attend one of her classes in person, she teaches at Qi Integrated Health.
