This dynamic membership was designed with helping and healing professionals in mind — from nourishing your bottom line to supporting your self-care. It's also a hub for like-minded practitioners to come together for learning, growing, connecting, and thriving.
There are two ways to join The Embodied Wellness Professional Membership: The Core Membership and The Plus+ Membership.
Both the Core and the Plus+ membership provide you with an On-Demand Membership Library, a powerful affiliate program, and a supportive community. The growing on-demand library allows you to explore Awareness Through Movement® lessons, Mindfulness + Meditation Practices, and food-loving inspirations on your own schedule and in the comfort of your home ...or on the road. You can even send links to specific lessons to your clients who are active members.
But we don't stop there, we also offer you an opportunity to join in live classes each month via Zoom. That's where the two membership options differ. We'll share more on that below.
So if you're looking for a resource for yourself and for your practice, then you've come to the right place. Let us support you and your clients. We invite you to join us, connect with others, and develop a lifestyle that nourishes your nervous system, soothes your soul, and feeds your mind. Come and find yourself in motion!
Nourish your bottom line as you support your clients & your community. When you're enrolled in The Embodied Wellness Professional Membership, you earn a higher Affiliate Rate and gain access to advanced affiliate resources.
Because we believe that when you're familiar with all that the Embodied Wellness Membership has to offer, you'll be able to confidently recommend the resources and classes that are supportive to your clients. Think of us as a community supporting you as a practitioner, providing additional support & community for the lifestyle and behavior change that you know is essential to your client's success.
Self-care is crucial for optimal health and wellness, especially for helping & healing professionals who spend their days committed to helping others. It can be rewarding work. And, it can also be draining.
We all know that our well-being affects our performance and productivity. That's why we want you to have access to the same Pillars Of Practice that you're clients will be enjoying. By taking advantage of the practices inside the membership, you'll fill your own cup and gain valuable insights on how to best recommend these practices to your clients.
Mindfulness is a practice of deliberately paying attention to the mind in the present moment, with both care and compassion. It's the difference between noticing what is true just now (fact) and observing the running commentary of the mind (thought). As you learn to pay direct attention to your experience in this way, the mind/body complex naturally eases.
The practices offered within this membership will help you to cultivate mindfulness in two ways. The first is through the practices of meditation. The second is by learning how to discern the habits of mind which are helpful from those which are not. As your capacity to be mindful grows, you'll be able to handle mental & physical challenges with greater ease and clarity and live your life with more joy.
Certain lifestyle habits and choices over time result in metabolic imbalances which promote a more inflammatory environment. Food is one of those lifestyle habits that can have a BIG impact on our inflammation.
As part of the Well-Being portion of the membership, we'll focus on clean eating and inspired cooking. We'll explore theories of eating and ways to re-connect with the sensorial delights of food. You'll also receive recipes + suggestions to help keep cooking easy and your belly full. There'll be no feeling deprived here.
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 sacred space where you can connect with others, join one of our accountability topics, and share your knowledge & experiences.
As a practitioner, we encourage you to support your clients and share your wisdom. Although we don't allow self-promotion, we do encourage members to reach out to practitioners who they're interested in working with.
As part of The Embodied Wellness Core Membership, you have access to a limited number of live classes that are held online via Zoom. You'll be able to attend an Awareness Through Movement® class, the Culinary Celebrations Gathering, and a Taste Of Mindfulness each month. However, with The Embodied Wellness Plus+ Membership you have access to unlimited Awareness Through Movement® classes, Nourishing Fundamentals Group Coaching, and so much more.
All of the classes are held via Zoom. For our movement classes, this allows your instructor to customize her teaching based on what you do. For all of our events, you'll have an opportunity to learn with one of our instructors and engage with your fellow members.
If you support those with persistent pain and/or chronic illness...
Then joining a membership like this can be a game changer. In part, because our programs are designed to help your clients continue their learning between sessions. This is BIG. This allows you to get the most out of your time with your clients and be instrumental in helping them to achieve the sustainable change that they're looking for.
The beauty of this membership is that you gain access to everything that you're clients will have access to. Which means you'll be able to share links directly to the practices that you want them to explore. And since you can explore all of these practices on your own, you'll know exactly what they'll be doing.
More importantly, a membership like this can be a game changer because of the people that you'll connect with. It can be challenging to find a community of like-minded practitioners who you can grow with. We know that most helping and healing professionals are solo-preneurs, and that's why we wanted to create a membership that would support their practice and grow their referral network. None of us can do it all. But, with a community like this, we can offer our clients the resources they need to live well.
For those who want to move more and stress less...
This membership can keep you moving. Why? Because as helping and healing professions, we often work similar hours. It can be challenging to get to a class as frequently as we'd like. 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 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!

Buffy Owens is a Guild Certified Feldenkrais Practitioner® and Functional Medicine Certified Health Coach. Her journey with the Feldenkrais Method® and Meditation began in the early 1990's. During that same time, she was introduced to the idea of using food as medicine and the importance of Community Supported Agriculture.
Today, Buffy has a steadfast passion for helping people to move beyond pain and into a life that fills them up — from the inside and out!
Most of the people that she works with have been suffering from complex pain for so long, that the idea of getting back to living a life they love seems impossible. She helps them to gain the knowledge, skill, and awareness that's necessary to shift from a life of suffering to one of meaning and joy.
