Weekly Awareness Through Movement® Classes

Currently, all weekly classes are on-line.

Class themes relate to daily activities, such as reaching, bending, walking, working at the computer, playing with children or grandchildren.  Each class is a stand-alone lesson related to a theme.  Students move slowly, within a comfortable range, in a non-comparative and non-competitive setting.  I am committed to addressing individual limitations and needs, allowing students of any fitness level and ability to participate.  Time for comments and questions encourage applications to daily life situations.  Students frequently comment: “It’s not your usual exercise class!”


Classes are about an hour in length.  Often we lie on the floor for the lesson; sometimes we stand or sit in a chair.  Dress comfortably in layers and arrange a mat or blanket for lying on the floor.  Have a towel or small pad available if you need something under your head when lying on your back.


When we return to in-person classes, a raised platform will be available to allow participation by those unable to get to and from the floor easily.  Contact me in advance to check platform availability.

To Register:

The Corvallis Community Center will offer an Insurance Option as a way to take certain classes beginning in January.  My Awareness Through Movement® class is one of them. It will no longer be possible to pay for a class series through the Community Center.

There are three ways to sign up and pay for a class. The links below provide details:

1.  Rec Fit Membership** -- $40/month for individual Corvallis   residents  to take as many group exercise classes or lap swims as you wish.  Details HERE. -- New Members sign up Jan 2-29 and GET JANUARY FREE!!!

2.  Renew Active passes** -- a yearly insurance benefit available January 4. CLICK for more details.
3.   Drop-in for $7 (per day per class) -- call the Community Center each week to pay for a class, get the online link, etc. How-to info and answers to common questions: HERE

Wait until January 4, 2021 to sign up for classes if you are not already a Rec Fit member or think you have Renew Active in order to get everything for free in January!    If you have a United Healthcare Medicare Advantage plan, you may be eligible for Renew Active. Check with your plan at the beginning of January.

And, if none of these options seems right for you, you can still take my class, either as one or two 5-week segments or sign up for the whole quarter.  Topics and details below or go HERE to register.

Please don't hesitate to contact me or call the Community Center directly (541-766-6959) -- it is complicated!
