Catherine Wycoff

Catherine has been a physical therapist for over 30 years, with an undergraduate degree from Belgium and a doctorate degree from Des Moines University. She is a lifelong horse lover and rider, starting with jumpers and dressage competition, and continuing with hippotherapy and a little bit of driving. She was introduced to the Feldenkrais Method in the early nineties and was amazed by how such gentle Awareness Through Movement® sessions can rewire our brain to improve the way we move and live our lives. She has been teaching Feldenkrais ATM classes since 1999 and loves to watch her students learn to improve their flexibility, balance, posture, and rediscover how to move with ease and joy at any age.
