This workshop will give you tools to align your spine, especially your neck, relieving lower back pain, tension, disc issues, headaches, stiffness, and TMJ issues. On this 2nd day we add the pelvic floor to find center and to balance the head and spine from below.
Our smaller muscles usually work unconsciously, sometimes too hard, sometimes unevenly, sometimes unable to access functional movement. While many modalities focus on large muscles only, Feldenkrais® / SmartMoves instead re-educates the smaller muscles to improve the efficient working of larger muscles.
Men and women both accumulate unconscious patterns of under-use or overuse of the pelvic floor. As we age, the pelvic floor starts to weaken with gravity, trauma (such as childbirth), or lifting. Let’s retrain the smaller muscles in the pelvic floor, for example, to contribute to the big muscles of the stomach, back and legs working efficiently.
Eva Geueke offers a wealth of information and movement solutions to improve health of the spine from the neck to the lower back, and well-being for our entire self through Feldenkrais/ SmartMoves.

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
