Feldenkrais Method - Thinking Big Picture
Breath & Voice | With Brad Thompson & Georgi Laney
Georgi Laney & Brad Thompson, Feldenkrais Practitioners, discuss the intimately connected system of body, breath and voice in this engaging, informative and experiential interview. Join them as they discuss the inter-dependent relationship between postural habits, breathing and voice and its impact on everyday functioning. The interviewers also lead listeners through some snippets of Awareness Through Movement (ATM) lessons, providing opportunities for personal embodied experience. May this interview provoke your curiosity and a desire for further exploration and learning.
Learning & Neurological Conditions | With Suzan Hillier & Jane Searle
Learning happens through the medium of a body that is constantly adjusting to feedback loops. Refining the quality/accuracy of the feedback is what we focus on in Feldenkrais. This is especially relevant when someone has had a stroke, however often getting up and down off the floor can represent a barrier to attending ATM classes. But there are many ways to overcome this hurdle and this interview with Susan Hiller and Jane Searle will inspire you. They describe how participants in a randomised, controlled pilot study, exploring the effectiveness of ATM, find their independence in getting up and down off the floor through successive approximations; how providing a sense of support and safety, is what lets them try.
Embodied Resilience | With Annemarie D, Lynda J, Jenny D & Molly T
The Feldenkrais Method helps us connect with our quiet, confident and playful selves.
Learning to become more connected with our body and breath; with gravity and ground; and with our environments through our senses is a marvelous gift that awakens new experiences for living a easy, pleasurable and choice filled life.
Join Annemarie, Jenny, Lynda and Molly as we discuss how the Feldenkrais Method can support us in finding an embodied resiliency.

More Than Movement | With Zoran Kovich & Anna Yeatman
In this interview Anna Yeatman PhD and Zoran Kovich MSc introduce you to the fundaments of Feldenkrais praxis. Find out why Moshe Feldenkrais unceasingly advised people that the physical benefits they experience in lessons, whilst useful and pleasant, are just a prize, a present, for being and becoming more human.
Horse Riding | With Catherine Hamber
Whether or not you ride horses, we all ride the ups and downs of life. This discussion with Catherine Hamber, on what it means to maintain balance over a moving, conscious base, with it’s own preferences and biases, offers a fascinating insight into the dynamics of a two-way relationship. The main job of the rider is to allow the horse to do it’s thing and not get in it’s way! She explores how emotions / feelings have an associated posture, how the horse picks up on that and how riding is the art of recovering and accessing the state of ‘joyful invincible’ on cue.
