Episode 107:Today I am going to share a lesson that introduces us to how the hip and shoulder joints relate to our spine, and how they coordinate for walking. This is an intro class for the Feldenkrais Walking Series: Walking From Your Spine. The context for this series is to learn about how our limbs and our spine move in relation to each other.In today’s podcast you will first hear me introduce the class and how we will approach the subject of walking from a Feldenkrais pers...
Episode 106: Today’s class is a short meditation that can be done lying down in savasana or sitting upright. Our inquiry of study during this meditation was inspired by two of my most influential teachers, Insight Meditation teacher Mark Nunberg and Feldenkrais trainer Jeff Haller. You won’t need anything for this class, except a cushion or blanket to sit on, or if you choose to lie down, please have any props you will need if you choose to do the meditation lying down. Sarah Baumer...
Episode 105: In this 35 minute practice we will be utilizing a thin blanket roll to wake up spinal flexion, extension and rotation all along the spine.

Episode 104: Today’s class is a short breath awareness meditation done in savasana with a weight placed on the belly.You will need something heavy that you can place on your abdomen. If you have a yoga sandbag, this works great. Most people don’t have that, so I suggest finding one or two very thick books. A thick textbook could work well. If you are using a book, then you will also want to have a blanket or a towel that you can place underneath the book, so that the weight is not hard or pre...
Episode 103: Today’s class is focused on calming the eyes. This class is similar to Episode 56, but I wanted to re record and re-teach the class, as it has been a popular episode and I wanted to get a higher quality audio version of it for you. In this short Feldenkrais lesson, the eyes, their state of calm, and the quality of our dark vision becomes a marker of the overall state of the nervous system. When one’s visual stimulation calms down, it can have a relaxing effect on the neck, jaw, b...
Episode 102: Today’s class is an exploration of the breath. In yoga, we call this pranayama. However today’s lesson will be more of a Feldenkrais inspired way of paying attention to the breath. With each proposal, each variation of breathing, I invite you to listen and take care. If at any moment you feel the way you are breathing creates tension or shortness of breath, please do the breathing proposal with much less intensity or even imagine the movement. If you enjoy this lesson, you m...

Episode 100: Today I am going to share with you an episode of the Expand Your Abilities Podcast with Jeffrey Schwinghammer. Jeffrey is a filmmaker and Feldenkrais practitioner and the director of the upcoming documentary on the Feldenkrais Method. I’m really enjoying how his podcast is breaking down some really complex principles of the Feldenkrais method. In his recent interview with me we discussed my background, how I came to teach both yoga and Feldenkrais, and how learning to move e...

Episode 95: Today's podcast is constructed in two parts. First, I will be talking about posture as a dynamic system and giving some information on my Feldenkrais series, Posture Matters, explaining how a Feldenkrais approach to posture restoration is different from other modalities. Then we will go into an abbreviated lesson. The lesson portion of today is a little taste of the first lesson in the Posture Matters series and begins around 21:33. Posture, including the tension in the...
Episode 94: A 60 minute live class blending Feldenkrais and gentle yoga poses. In this class we explore creating a sense of width in the body. Oftentimes if our eyes have a more narrow focus (like when we are looking at a fixed object such as a screen), then our whole body can start to shrink inward and feel compressed. This is a fantastic practice to juice up the spine after a day of sitting and integrate the eyes after a day of looking at a screen. Sarah Baumert has been teaching movem...
