The Profound Healing Power of Subtle Movement and Rolling: a Feldenkrais®/SmartMoves Weekend Workshop
February 9, 2020, @ 4:30 pm - 7:30 pm HST
Sunday, February 9
4:30 -7:30 pm (HST)
Both: $105 (for $23 savings!)
Roll your spine healthy, strengthen yourself by connecting to your center (hara / tan tien), where the gut instinct lies. The Hawaiians call this place na’au where the wisdom of your body, mind, and spirit unifies.
We will do movements lessons again with small and subtle movements, as on Saturday, and will do more rolling on Sunday.
All of us need to be able to easily roll – minimally to get in and out of bed and our cars. As babies we learned to roll before we could sit or stand. Rolling is a critical skill in connecting our body and limbs again back to the center where it all started. Through gentle, mindful rolling, we will re-activate our powerful coordination abilities. These rolling lessons are executed again slowly, gradually developing step by step, so all ability levels can participate. For some, the movement can be bigger, less meditative and more playful.
Rolling movements bring us back into our proverbial ‘happy place’, and students often start laughing and giggling! Reorganizing the center often frees up the neck, and discomfort in back and neck can disappear.
You won’t believe how much better you will feel by the end of this weekend of workshops! See Saturday workshop. Both days are a perfect combination and are built to complement each other. If time does not permit you to do both, you may take them separately.

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
