MOVEMENTWISE Movement Education


Classes in Corvallis

Joan offers Feldenkrais Awareness Through Movement® classes Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays at her office, Movementwise, in downtown Corvallis.  No matter what your level of physical skill and ability, these classes will help you learn to move better. You will enhance both your physical and mental agility by making a better connection between your mind and body. 

Classes consist of easy, step-by-step movements verbally directed the instructor, with a different topic each month, listed below. Usually, the movements are completed lying on the floor, but may also include sitting, standing and walking activities. Assistance is available at each class to help you get up and down from the floor if needed. 

Classes are appropriate for nearly all skill levels, from those recovering from an injury to those working to excel in physical fitness. Class activities are designed for both those new to Feldenkrais and those with years of experience.
