Testimonials

  • After participating in Joanne's Awareness Through Movement classes, my movements feel more fluid.  I become very relaxed and more flexible.  It's a wonderfully unique feeling of being physically 'free' and very connected to my body.

  • -- Ann H. Rux, Ph.D.
  • In the most gentle, soothing and inclusive way, Awareness Through Movement is like a guided meditation facilitated by Joanne.  To feel the result of lengthened limbs and opened joints is nothing short of miraculous, and something I have not experienced anywhere else.  My wife says I look like a different person when I come home from class, and I feel like one too.

  • -- Will Byrd, working professional/amateur musician
  • Joanne helped me get rid of my neck pain.  I could hardly move my head!  She uses rich verbal imagery to lead her students to an expanded physical and mental awareness of how their bodies can move most efficiently.

  • The positive changes in my body, such as standing and walking pain-free for several hours, (instead of one hour), keep me coming back to Joanne's classes, who I consider one of the best teachers I have ever met.

  • -- Bruni Hopkinson
  • Joanne Fagerstrom's class in body movement the Feldenkrais way, provides me with a wonderful experience each time I go.  The exercises feel like a rich, nurturing bath in warm water.

  • -- William Hengst, writer and gardener
  • My flexibility has increased and I have better balance.  Joanne's own stories of experience in her work is very helpful in peaking my awareness of my body and it's movements.
