Feldenkrais for Life Podcast
Ep 1: Self-Regulation, Dealing with Stress, and Improving Posture
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?
Ep 2: Truth, the Heels, and Body Budget
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.
Ep 3: Prediction Error Correction
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.
Ep 4: Are You Comfortable in Your Misery?
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.
Ep 5 - Categories of Experience
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.
Ep 6: Memory and Development
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®.
Ep 7 - Spontaneity and Aging
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.
Ep 8 - How Language Creates Experience
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.
Ep 9 - Feldenkrais Aging with Ease
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.
