Free Gyrokinesis Movement Class
The Plus One Foundation will be sponsoring a free Gyrokinesis movement class at Seattle Changing Room with instructor Jamien Cvjetnicanin. The class will be geared towards people with mild-moderate symptoms from neurological disorders, such as MS and traumatic brain injuries. People with more severe symptoms are welcome to attend with a caregiver. No prior experience is necessary, and most of the movements are seated. The classes are entirely free and open to anyone in the Seattle area with neurological injuries or disorders, as well as their family and caretakers. Please note that while the studio is wheelchair accessible, the bathroom facility is not large enough for a wheelchair. Parking is plentiful and free.
Below are some websites for further information
Our Mission at Plus One:
According to the World Health Organization (WHO), neurological disorders, ranging from epilepsy to Alzheimer’s disease, Traumatic Brain Injury to Multiple Sclerosis, affect up to one billion people worldwide. They affect people in all countries, irrespective of age, sex, education or income. More than 500 different conditions are considered neurological disorders. We have a lot of work to do.
The Plus One Foundation assists children and adults with a neurological injury, disorder, or disease to achieve goals, expand opportunities and ‘feed the soul’ through activities that offer education, rehabilitation and training.
We fund classes, workshops and life experiences that are proven to assist individuals on their path of rehabilitation and recovery, but are rarely covered by insurance, such as; art and music therapy, therapeutic horseback riding, integrated movement therapy, martial arts, meditation, yoga, and aquatic therapies.

Plus One provides grants to children and adults with neurological diseases and disorders.
Usually this means individuals, but sometimes our grants can help whole families. Summer's a time when kids are out of school and at home with their family, and we wanted to highlight a family that you've helped with your donations.
Cara and Matt both are parents to three young children. They also live with MS. We were able to provide a grant to get Cara and Matt a membership to the YMCA. With this membership, not only can Cara and Matt focus on their own health and wellness, they can also set a great example for their children.
Please consider making a donation today so we can help more individuals and families like Cara and Matt.
