Your life doesn’t look the same from day to day or week to week. When things get hectic or you’re on a schedule that varies constantly, you need movement and meditation practices that fit into your time. Our lessons range from 10-60 minutes, so you can choose how much time to commit.
With the Feldenkrais® and Mindfulness Membership, you can move through our Awareness Through Movement® lessons and Mindfulness Practices on your own schedule in the comfort of your home ...or on the road. Heck, you can even grab a friend or loved one and move together!
Designed to invoke the curiosity & passion you had for movement as a child and merge it with the wisdom & intelligence you have as an adult.
The truth is that you probably stopped learning and practicing new physical skills sometime in early childhood— you rolled around, you crawled, you walked, you ran, you jumped… then what happened? If you’re like most people, you sat down and started working. Before you knew it your curiosity had started to wane and your discomfort began to soar.
Maybe you're simply interested in Meditation but can't sit still? We've all heard that meditation is good for us, and can help with a wide range of problems. But with all the information out there, where do you start?
Meditation doesn't have to be hard and Mindfulness can be a lot of fun! Both can be powerful allies in living a more embodied and fulfilled life. You don't have to sign up to a religious belief system. You don't have to follow only one prescribed form of meditation. It doesn't even have to be time-consuming.
Because it is often hard for busy people to get to a class as frequently as they would like or find an instructor they are comfortable with. Heck, here in the USA there are many communities that don't even have a local Feldenkrais Practitioner®.
That said, practicing with others is different than practicing alone and both are a vital part of having an on-going practice. So please, if you have an instructor or meditation community in your area then join others in moving & finding stillness and let this platform support your home practice!
• Movers, shakers and mindfulness makers... and those who want to be!
• Those seeking support in developing a Home Practice.
• Those who don't have a local Feldenkrais Practitioner® or Meditation Teacher.

• Those looking for a quick fix! This work and this membership was created to support those who want to keep learning and growing for life.
Are you interested in meditation but can't sit still? Or maybe a lack of comfort is what keeps you from the cushion? Or perhaps you find your mind racing and simply don't believe you're capable of finding your 'zen'?
We live in a complicated world that pulls our attention in every direction. And although a lot of these distractions are interesting and fun, the business of it all can tie us into stressful knots.
So we think we 'should' make time to sit and meditate. Only when we think about meditating, our iddy biddy shiddy committee pipes in with all the ways we'll fail at sitting. Or maybe you make it past the committee only to discover that your discomfort becomes yet another distraction. Now instead of being relaxing or insightful, meditation itself becomes another knot.
Well, have no fear because this series will help you to ease into practice, find a practice that works for you, and help you to integrate mindfulness throughout your day.
We'll begin with movement. By changing our habits of movement, we relax and awaken the body; by changing our habits of thinking, we awaken and relax the mind.
We'll explore the mind. We'll take some time to explore our beliefs and expectations. This will give us a chance to see what we take with us onto the cushion — what stops us, what ensures that we'll be uncomfortable at some level.
We'll find ways to bring what we practice in Movement & Meditation into your daily life. Why? Because practice isn't simply about the time we spend on a cushion, it's about deepening our experience of life.
Join us for this Movement & Mindfulness series and re-learn how to find a sense of ease and grace in your everyday movements!
"In reality our self-image is never static. It changes from action to action, but these changes gradually become habits; that is, the actions on a fixed, unchanging character."
This 6-week series will guide you through easy and accessible practices that you can use and enjoy as part of your everyday movements. Each week you'll receive an Awareness Through Movement® lesson designed to help you learn more about yourself as you find more comfort in sitting. You'll also receive several short mindfulness & movement practices created specifically to help you to stay on track. Most importantly, you'll be guided in a way that will allow you to develop your awareness of the habits that wreak havoc, the practices you can do to remedy the strain and fully guided to easily integrate this work into your daily life.

Everyone is moved by something.
What's moved and motivated me has shifted throughout the years. In my early days of exploring the mind & body, I was moved to heal. I was driven by just enough dysfunction to evoke a desire for something different.... something more.
Gradually what moved me shifted.
Today, I'm moved by a deep sense of awe and curiosity! I lean into my personal practice (read spiritual vow) through my work at Conscious Movements, an online and in the flesh Feldenkrais & Holistic Health Coaching studio. I use movement, mindfulness and the almighty menu to teach others how to tap into their unique bio-individualty to thrive. My primary focus is on empowering movers, shakers and mindfulness makers…. and all of those who want to be, the skills they need to move past the discomfort that is holding them back from living fully!
