Welcome to Freedom of Motion Wellness LLC

Offering SomaYoga and Feldenkrais® classes and individual sessions via Zoom.


Tuesdays 8-9 AM CST   SomaYoga – yoga for everybody and anybody! A gentler approach, with many modifications demonstrated. Exercise with the amount of challenge that suits you. Classic asanas done with your alignment and health in mind. You are in charge of how much or how little you do.

MarySusan is a 2022 graduate of Yoga North International SomaYoga Institute, integrating the best of Somatics with traditional yoga practice.

Please have a yoga mat, or other surface to practice, a couple of towels, a blanket, a chair and a wall nearby. Yoga blocks, strap, and bolster if you have them.

Wednesdays 9-10 AM CST Feldenkrais Awareness Through Movement® classes are rejuvenating and enlivening. These classes are designed for learning, so come with a beginner’s mind, and your curiosity wide open. Developmental motions done without strain or force will leave you feeling younger, more balanced and upright.

Please dress in stretchy, comfortable layers.

We usually start the lesson sitting and then move into lying down. 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.

  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.

    • 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

    • 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.
