Show Notes

This is a recording of a mini class that I taught during the first few months of the Covid crisis, when many of us, including yoga and movement teachers began looking at screens for many more hours a day than we were used to. This class does not include much asana at all, but is more of a meditation and yoga for the eyes. It is informed by the Feldenkrais practice, of which I am also a practitioner of. This lesson will help calm the nervous system, relax your eyes, let go of Zoom fatigue, help you find ease in the face and eye muscles, and may even help you fall asleep.

You will not need any props for this class. The class is mostly done in a supine savasana position, so be sure that you are warm enough and comfortable. If you enjoy this class, you may be interested in more of the Feldenkrais offerings that I have on my website

I am currently teaching live yoga asana classes via Zoom. You can find my full weekly schedule at BODY MATTER

Sarah has been creating podcast classes since 2007. Each podcast is an originally crafted yoga class taught by Sarah Baumert. There are currently over 50 episodes that range in length, level and style. Sarah's teaching is alignment based, unhurried, and rich with somatic inquiries. The cueing is effective, easy to follow, and uses visualizations of postures to allow for unexpected growth and depth. You will find live unplugged versions of her classes from yoga studios, as well as classes that are specifically produced for the podcast medium.
