LIFE EMBODIED

MINDFULNESS

COMPASSIONATE PRESENCE

Mindfulness is the basic human ability to be fully present. It's being aware of where we are and what we’re doing without being overwhelmed by what’s going on around us.

We'll guide you through the process of creating a regular meditation practice. And we'll show you how to bring mindfulness into everyday life!

As you capacity to be mindful grows you'll let go of unnecessary stress, meet physical challenges with greater ease, and live your life with more joy.

WELL-BEING

A FOCUS ON NOURISHMENT

You've probably heard the adage, Food Is Medicine. Here at A Space To Grow, we believe that to be true. We also know that food & nourishment are so much more than that. What nourishes us can feed our soul, connect us with others, and delight our senses.

And if you live with pain, then inflammation is something that's on your radar. Food is one of those lifestyle habits that can have a BIG impact on our inflammation.

Let us show you how to get started making small changes that matter.

WELL-BEING

COMMUNITY

LEARNING. GROWING. SHARING.

Communing with others can give us strength, keep us accountable, and fill us up. When you join the Embodied Wellness Membership, you gain access to a members-only community.

This is where the magic happens! It's a safe space where you can connect with others — from fellow students to helping & healing practitioners. So share your experiences, ask questions, and receive the support you need to change for good.
COMMUNITY

LIVE CLASSES

LEARN WITH OTHERS

Our Core Membership is our most basic plan and perfect for those looking for a mostly self-study option.

On the other hand, our Plus+ Membership includes unlimited classes, group coaching, and live sessions with each of our monthly courses.

All of the classes are held via Zoom — a video-based online platform. For our movement classes, this allows your instructor to customize her/his teaching based on what you do. And for all of our live sessions, you'll have an opportunity to engage directly with your instructor and your fellow members.

WHY AN ONLINE MEMBERSHIP?

If you suffer with complex pain and/or chronic illness...

Then joining a membership like this can be a game changer. In part, because of what you will learn. You'll learn how to make friends with your body again and feel comfortable in your own skin. You'll learn how to move with ease and grace and how to nourish yourself with the foods that you eat and the thoughts that you think.

More importantly, a membership like this can help you to cultivate a supportive community. It can be challenging to find a community of like-minded individuals who understand where you're coming from.  

Saying yes to a community like this is acknowledging and reavowing that you want to be a part of a community of curious and proactive people. It's saying yes to taking the time to move, to grow, and to have shared experiences ...that's the stuff that a supportive community is made of! 

For those who want to move more and stress less...

This membership can keep you moving. 

Class schedules don't always work with the schedules of our lives, bad weather can keep us away, or we might simply hunger for more than just a 'one day a week' experience. Heck, here in the USA there are many communities that don't even have a local Feldenkrais Practitioner® or offer regular meditation classes.

That's why we offer online classes that you can do in the comfort of your own home. And since the scheduled times of the live classes don't work for everyone, we also offer an opportunity to learn on your own via our online courses and library. 

That said, practicing with others is different than practicing alone. Yet both are a vital part of having an ongoing 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!

WHO IS THIS FOR?

  • People in pain and those who want to move with more ease & comfort.

  • Those who know that changing their eating habits will help, but don't know where to begin.

  • People who want to move beyond pain or who would like to befriend their bodies again.

  • Those looking to support their learning, healing, and growth. Especially those who are already working with a Feldenkrais Practitioner® or Health Coach.

WHO IS THIS IS NOT FOR?

We want you to be safe. We want you to be supported. We want you to thrive.

  • Those with chronic pain or a disabling disease who have not already consulted with their doctor.

  • Anyone with a condition, or who is taking medication that impacts their ability to sense pain or discomfort, or affects their ability to control their position and movement.

  • Those looking for a quick fix! This work and this membership were created to support those who understand that change, even positive change, is a process.
