Feldenkrais/Bones for Life (private instruction)
"I have found Feldenkrais classes very helpful in reducing pain from osteoporosis and hip replacement surgery, and I wanted to focus specifically on the osteoporosis-prevention aspect... I now walk daily, without serious pain."

Leadership Embodiment (Watertown Center for the Healing Arts)
"During Feldenkrais method fitness training, I also was impressed with the Leadership Embodiment portion of the class, which taught ways to change posture and body position to increase overall confidence and reduce stress. I found that these exercises significantly improved my work productivity."

Cardiac Rehabilitation and Maintenance (Holy Family Hospital, Methuen)
"My participation in this program allows me to continue my education regarding cardiovascular disease risk management. In addition, the supervised exercise training part of the program helps me maintain a healthy lifestyle in my retirement."
Stretch and Strengthen (Newton Wellesley Hospital Wellness Center)
"Let me thank the QCC Board for their generosity and foresight in providing this reimbursement incentive for members to pursue healthful and helpful personal objectives. The added incentive tipped the balance scales for me in favor of trying something which I would probably have put off again otherwise. Both of the courses I have taken... focused on improving posture and balance while increasing muscle strength and flexibility."

Pilates and Therapeutic Exercise (Your Center, Cambridge)
"Both my back pain and balance are improving significantly with these sessions and the customized attention [that the instructor] gives."

Adult Weight Management Program (Lahey Clinic Medical Center)
"The benefit of having taken this course has been increased awareness of what my nutrition needs are and the benefits of weight loss after a bypass."

Essentrics Stretch and Tone (Steinberg Wellness Center for Mind and Body at Emerson Hospital)
“A unique full-body workout that strengthens and lengthens your muscles simultaneously resulting in longer, leaner, and stronger muscles without using weights or equipment.”
