NOTICE: due to Covid19 isolation requirements, classes are being held online via Zoom.

Private sessions in Feldenkrais & Physical Therapy can be done via Telehealth. Please leave a message if you are interested.


Wednesdays 9-10 AM CST and Thursdays 4:30-5:30 PM CST

Feldenkrais, Posture Alive! classes are rejuvenating and enlivening. Refresh yourself regularly. These classes are designed for learning, so come with a beginner’s mind, and your curiosity wide open.

No special clothing is needed – stretchy and able to move is best. Comfortable layers. Shoes are not required. 

I usually start my lessons sitting and then move into lying on a mat on the floor. So have a chair near the computer and a mat on the floor. If you cannot get down to the floor, then have your device near your bed. 

My ability to see you, helps me to teach you well. Click here for Zoom set up info.


Payment is $15 per hour class. Or $50 per month.  Please use PayPal here, or contact me to mail a check.


Wednesday class is  resuming at Dole Center in Oak Park IL as soon as we have 6 or more registrants. At this time,  Zoom class will be moved to Thursday at 9 AM.   Details for in-person registration will follow.

  1. Hello,
    My name is Donna Wolf.
    I am interested in your therapy & classes. I have
    Lupus & deal with joint pain.

    For decades, I worked out 5 days a week. Since my diagnosis, I find that PT can irritate my joints.

    I am interested in your oakbrook terrace sessions.

    1. Donna,
      Nice to meet you. Posture Alive in Oakbrook Terrace will resume in September. Sessions in Oak Park, Wednesdays at 9 AM are running and you can join at any time.
      I will send you an email with further information also.
      In Health,
      Mary Susan Chen

    1. Sorry for the delay Elizabeth. I usually run a class 2-3 times per year, on Mondays at 5-6 PM in Oakbrook Terrace. I skipped it this season, since we committed to training a new puppy and I’m always ready to scoot home to our furry little one. Will resume in summer or fall. Let me know if I can put you on the email list for this class.
