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. Tops and pants ARE 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, 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 optional at this time (subject to change.) Suggested price is $15 per hour class. Or $50 per month.  Please use PayPal here, or contact me to mail a check. Then, send me a message noting which date and time you would like to attend: “I would like to attend Wednesday April 15th and 22nd at 9 AM CST.”


When Covid19 isolation is lifted and we are permitted, Wednesday class is expected to resume at Dole Center in Oak Park IL, and this date and time will not be offered online. 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.
