What happens in the brain as we age? How can we use the Feldenkrais Method® to continue to improve ourselves and do the things that are important to us in life? We each share our insights on how the Feldenkrais Method can keep you moving and vital while aging.
We discuss how Dr. Lisa Feldman Barrett’s books “How Emotions Are Made” and “7 1/2 Lessons about the Brain” confirm what Dr. Moshe Feldenkrais taught decades ago and offers a modern way to language what we do as Feldenkrais practitioners. We go into detail about how language creates an internal response in the speaker and listener. Language matters while guiding Feldenkrais Awareness Through Movement® Lessons.
What is spontaneity? How do social constraints inhibit our spontaneity? Experience spontaneous changes through Feldenkrais Awareness Through Movement® Lessons. Discover how we develop responsiveness to our changing environment.
We talk about implicit memory, explicit memory, and re-evaluating memories to create a new present-day experience. We discuss childhood development and learning and how we build new memories while experiencing Feldenkrais® Awareness Through Movement lessons®.
We discuss the Feldenkrais Method referencing: sensing, thinking, moving, and feeling. We define what a “category of experience” is and create a category to build a new referential concept. We also consider the pleasure of an un-categorized sensory experience and what is the Weber-Fechner principle.
Learn to move from negative states into positive ones. Experience pleasant sensations of the present moment. Integrate feelings for more effortless flow from one state to another with the Feldenkrais Method.
We discuss the concept of Prediction Error Correction as  Dr. Lisa Feldman Barrett presents it in her book, “How Emotions Are Made,” from subtle adjustments in our nervous system to errors that cause accidents. This process is an essential element in developmental learning and Feldenkrais lessons. 
What is truth?  We find a unique reality in the contact of the heels on the floor. We explore the idea of a body budget. 
We consider the impact the restrictions of the pandemic have had on our brains and nervous systems. We discuss strategies to reduce stress from Zooming and computer use. Why is it “incorrect to correct” from Dr. Feldenkrais’s point of view? How do Feldenkrais lessons provide a better way to self-improve?
We discuss pain as a motivator to seek the Feldenkrais Method®; how movement affects acute pain and chronic pain. Donna shares how she managed pain and regained the use of her hand and arm using the Feldenkrais Method. 
The Feldenkrais Method® can enhance and invigorate your mindful practice. Whatever your practice - yoga, meditation, Tai-Chi, Aikido, or moving boulders - Feldenkrais lessons can make what you do easier.
The Feldenkrais Method® includes movement, sensing, thinking, and feeling in the development of Awareness. Movement quality, how you move, integrates these primary aspects of the experience. Recognize the pattern of anxiety as described by Dr. Feldenkrais in his book, The Elusive Obvious. 
What is the difference between implicit and explicit memories? Learn to make pleasant memories stick. Become familiar with strategies of learning within the Feldenkrais Method®.
Conforming to socially accepted learning norms may create habits of tension in the body/mind. What is the Weber-Fechner law, and how does it apply to learning the Feldenkrais Way? Play and problem solving make us smarter.
Learn about Dr. Feldenkrais and the professional trainings he developed. Consider, competence, confidence, and how beliefs shape our self-image. Donna shares how she became a painter and Al discusses how he overcame his voice's significant limitations.
Join us, and experience simple, easy-to-do, powerful Feldenkrais movements that demonstrate the nature of habit. 
Understand the difference between Feldenkrais Awareness Through Movement® and exercise. Experience a short movement learning experience. Recognizing habits. What are they? And how Feldenkrais lessons impact them.
We introduce ourselves and give you a preview of what’s to come in the first season of our Feldenkrais for Life podcast.
