Take this wonderful opportunity to address chronic neck problems. Move and release tense shoulder girdles\, or a clenched jaw.  \nWith effective\, tiny Feldenkrais® movements\, you can get rid of that notorious ‘pain in the neck’. These exercises can be done from anywhere\, at any time. And once your neck releases\, your face will start to look as if it’s had a vacation!  \nFrom 7th Cervical to the Atlas  \nThe neck can act like a bottleneck between our brain and our torso. It’s common to carry tension here\, and it’s an area prone to injury. As a result\, unpleasant\, painful and even dangerous conditions can arise. When we soften and heal the neck\, the possibility of a whole new outlook on life emerges.   \nThis workshop offers simple and easy healing methods\, gentle enough for all age groups and safe for people with most medical conditions. Most movements will be done while lying down. Though the neck will be the focus\, the entire spine benefits to feel longer. \nThis workshop is recommended for all active people\, teleworkers and anyone who wants to feel younger and more mobile. People with chronic pain often find relief with Feldenkrais. This workshop will be especially effective for tired eyes\, stiff neck and shoulders being overused on computers and cell phones. All ages of adults are welcome.  \nPlease have a mat or rug on the floor.  \nThe Feldenkrais® Method \nThe Feldenkrais method was developed by Judo Black belt and physician Dr. Moshe Feldenkrais in the 1940s to help heal his severe sports injury. His method has helped thousands of people of all ages\, worldwide\, to regain function and recover from injuries\, tension and pain. \nDr. Feldenkrais understood that improving the function of the body starts with increasing the mind’s awareness of the body. With this new awareness\, we re-pattern our movement and musculature. We drop excess effort and move with greater ease. Without even realizing it\, we are resetting your nervous system. Our brain and body now work together more smoothly as we move. \nThe Feldenkrais® Method is a wonderful and potent method that almost anyone can do. It only requires a curiosity about our own movement habits. Some of those habits have been causing limitations\, pain\, inflammation and over-exertion for perhaps years. We’ve learned certain unhealthy habitual movements and postures so long ago that we may no longer recognize them or know that we can actually change our old patterns. With the Feldenkrais® Method we can recognize those hindering habits and find better ways of moving that are healthy\, strengthening and pain free. This happens not only on the physical plane – it also ripples out into the rest of one’s life. \n \n \n \n Eva Alewa Geueke\nStudents appreciate Eva’s sincere care for their health and excellence on every level. Her range of personal experience in various moving art forms and her understanding of movement in the human body are vast. She studied Dance in Holland at the prestigious Rotterdam’s Dance Academie and then went on to later study in New York City. She has trained in a wide range of dance forms such as: Ballet\, Modern Dance\, Post Modern Dance/Release Technique\, Axis Syllabus\, Body-Mind Centering\, Contact Improvisation\, African Dance and currently Hula. \nEva Alewa Geueke has been a guild certified Feldenkrais® practitioner for 30 years. She came to the Feldenkrais Method® as a young professional dancer and it changed her understanding of the brain\, body\, movement and therefore\, herself forever. Since completing the 4-year Professional Feldenkrais Training in 1987 she has been teaching the Feldenkrais Method® internationally in thousands of private sessions\, week long seminars\, and hundreds of week-end workshops and evening classes. \nEva loves to share her knowledge and passion for conscious movement and to help people improve and excel in all areas of their lives. She taught Yoga Aerobics® in NYC in the 80’s before getting to know the Feldenkrais Method. Eva is a teacher of Contemporary dance\, Qigong-Universal Tao of Mantak Chia\, a Capoeirista (Brazilian martial arts)\, WaveContinuum practitioner and a choreographer. \n \n \n \n \n \n \n \n \n \n \n \n \n \n \n \n \n \n \n \n \n \n \n \n Get the Still & Moving App\n \n APPLE APP STORE\n \n GOOGLE PLAY STORE URL:https://stillandmovingcenter.com/event/pain-free-neck-feldenkrais/ LOCATION:HI\, United States CATEGORIES:Feldenkrais,FITNESS,Healthy Living,Mindful Fitness,Senior ATTACH;FMTTYPE=image/jpeg:https://stillandmovingcenter.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/04/IMG_0138-2-scaled.jpeg END:VEVENT BEGIN:VEVENT DTSTART;TZID=Pacific/Honolulu:20210605T093000 DTEND;TZID=Pacific/Honolulu:20210605T113000 DTSTAMP:20210507T092022 CREATED:20210416T005923Z LAST-MODIFIED:20210427T194817Z UID:15072-1622885400-1622892600@stillandmovingcenter.com SUMMARY:Intro to ELDOA™ workshop - LIVE ONLINE\, Interactive with Stacey Stone DESCRIPTION:Intro to ELDOA™ workshop – LIVE ONLINE\, Interactive with Stacey Stone\n  \n \n \n \n Saturday\, June 5\, 2021\n9:30 – 11:30 am HST  *** 12:30 – 2:30 pm PDT\, 3:30 – 5:30 pm EDT \n$39 \n20 % Golden Circle & Platinum member Discount \n \n Sign Up Now\n \n \n \n Perhaps you’ve wondered about the ELDOA technique – a class Still & Moving Center began offering just under a year ago. Intriguingly\, the French government commissioned a doctor to create this movement practice to prevent and address the vast amount of back pain that their national health system was paying for. And it’s working! \nMuch simpler than the translation from French may sound*\, this highly effective movement method lengthens the spine and decompresses joints. Through gentle movements\, the body receives maximum relief. \nIn this workshop Stacey will introduce the basics of ELDOA to get you ready for your first class. You will learn:  \n\nWhat is ELDOA?\nHow can it help neck & back pain?\nWhat are the basic postures & cues? \n\nOnce the renowned French osteopath Dr. Guy Voyer created the ELDOA Method over 30 years ago\, this method has become popular worldwide. It’s helping people regain comfort in their bodies and rediscover the ease of good posture. ELDOA has more recently spread to the United States\, growing in popularity for its effective results. People who appreciate Feldenkrais also tend to appreciate ELDOA. \nWhat ELDOA can do for you:\n\nAlleviate back and joint pain\nFacilitate healing of the joint tissues to decrease inflammation & chronic pain\nImprove arthritic & neurological conditions of the spine\, hips and shoulders\nImprove posture\nImprove mobility\nPrevent injury.\n\n *In case your were wondering\, ELDOA stands for the French acronym Étirements Longitudinaux avec Décoaptation Osteo-Articulaire\, translating to: Longitudinal Osteo-Articular Decompression Stretches (lengthwise opening stretches\, relating to the bones and joints). Basically\, the technique makes use of the same principle of tensegrity that keeps the Eiffel Tower standing upright. Our backs and upright stature for walking depend on all of our connective tissues working together properly\, and ELDOA trains the body to do this again naturally. \nCome give it a try! \n \n \n \n \n \n \n \n Stacey Stone\nStacy was overjoyed to discover a way to greatly help clients with back pain through the ELDOA technique. At the core of Stacey’s teaching is the commitment to honor the body as an integrated whole\, which must be moved accordingly\, not as a collection of bits and pieces.  \nStacey loves helping people to move better and become injury resistant\, to defy the aches and pains of aging. She finds great satisfaction in educating and motivating her students and clients to take responsibility for their own health and well-being\, so they can live more fully and joyfully. Her unique approach to teaching movement stems from 20 years of education\, training\, and experience\, where she has gained a deeper understanding of how the body’s interconnected parts work together. Stacey’s certifications and education includes: BA Psychology\, Certified Personal Trainer\, ELDOA Practitioner™\, CHEK Holistic Lifestyle Coach- Level 1\, CHEK Practitioner- Level 1\, Certified Yoga Instructor\, Buteyko Instructor- Level 1\, Reiki Master. \n \n SEE ALL OF OUR EVENTS\n \n \n \n \n \n \n \n \n \n \n \n \n \n \n \n \n \n \n \n \n \n \n \n Get the Still & Moving App\n \n APPLE APP STORE\n \n GOOGLE PLAY STORE URL:https://stillandmovingcenter.com/event/intro-eldoa-method-stacey-stone/ LOCATION:HI\, United States CATEGORIES:FITNESS,Healthy Living,Mindful Fitness,Pilates,Senior ATTACH;FMTTYPE=image/png:https://stillandmovingcenter.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/04/Screen-Shot-2021-04-15-at-3.03.58-PM.png END:VEVENT BEGIN:VEVENT DTSTART;TZID=Pacific/Honolulu:20210607T163000 DTEND;TZID=Pacific/Honolulu:20210628T203000 DTSTAMP:20210507T092022 CREATED:20210318T175114Z LAST-MODIFIED:20210326T015330Z UID:13942-1623083400-1624912200@stillandmovingcenter.com SUMMARY:ONLINE Lomilomi Training Focus: “Navigating Through Time” - LIVE ONLINE\, Interactive with Mālia Helelā\, kumu hula and kumu of lomilomi DESCRIPTION:Mondays\, June 7-14-21-28\, 2021 \n4:30 – 8:30 pm HST \nPrice: $395  \n20% discout to Golden Circle members\nIn English ONLY \n \n SIGN UP NOW\n \n \n \n Pre-registration is required.

As a whole\, the 8 complementary programs\, each with its own focus\, provide 128 hours of training that comprises Maliaʻs full culturally-based approach to lomilomi massage.  \nHawaiian lomilomi massage is unique in all of the ways that Hawai’i is unique.  Lomilomi acknowledges and appreciates the influence of Hawaii’s natural environment on its healing practices. This training provides a foundation in lomilomi that is appropriate for use in a spa setting or within the family. Malia introduces bodywork in the first lesson\, with options for self-massage for those who may not have someone else to work in this online context. Each weekly session builds upon the last so that lessons and themes are intertwined.Topics in the training include\, but are not limited to\, Hawaiian terminology for the course\, opening and closing protocols\, palpation\, using the bones as guides\, and body systems found in nature. To complement the lomilomi massage techniques\, students also learn relevant components of oli (chanting)\, hula (dance)\, pule (prayer) and ‘olelo (language). Lei-making develops skills in the hands and fingers and illustrates the importance of a firm yet sensitive touch. Students will also learn the significance of the moon throughout this training. \n\nSupplies You Need to Assemble: \n\n\nPrintouts of the handouts that you will be emailed in advance \nPareau/sarong or sheet\nAssorted pillows / cushions\nFloor covering for a bare floor\, such as yoga mat or area rug\, unless you have a massage table\nMassage oil or lotion of your choice\n\n \nKumu Mālia \nKumu Mālia Ko’i’ulaokawaolehua Helelā  strives to live a life of grace.

You can jot in your Gratitude for the day\, your Hope Goals\, your plans to “Move your body” and your “Ahas!”. \nAlmanacs were originally designed to help us keep pace with our physical universe\, providing sunrise and sunset times\, equinoxes and solstices\, etc. Ours does that too!
