Have you tried it all and still your pain persists?

Then maybe it's time for a radically different approach! Let us show you how lifestyle-based changes can be different. We'll help you to develop habits that nourish your nervous system, soothe your soul, and feed your mind.

Embodied Wellness is for those who suffer with chronic pain and autoimmune disorders. It's a membership that merges the best of self-paced learning, live classes, and community.

MOVEMENT

LIFE EMBODIED

Awareness Through Movement® can help you to easily transform the way that you move in as little as 30-minutes once a week and 5-minutes a day.

  1. Discover how your habits of moving, thinking, and feeling are contributing to your discomfort.

  2. Learn how to move in a way that actually reverses the patterns that are causing you pain and discomfort.

  3. Move with confidence as you tap into a sense of ease & vitality.

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. We'll show you how to bring mindfulness into everyday life!

As your 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.

LIVE CLASSES

LEARN WITH OTHERS

As part of your free trial, you'll receive access to four live classes.

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.

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. 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.


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 hunger for more than just a 'one day a week' experience. Heck, here in the USA, many communities 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 from 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 who want 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.
