Buffy Owens, Feldenkrais Practitioner & Wellness Coach
Buffy Owens, the founder of Conscious Movements, is a Guild Certified Feldenkrais Practitioner (G.C.F. P.) and Wellness Coach with over 15 years experience in the mind-body fields. She is admittedly addicted to the art of learning and the wonders of meditation and mindfulness practices. She also takes particular joy in supporting people along their path to less pain, greater self-discovery, and in enhancing the lives of children with special needs & extraordinary gifts.
Buffy’s commitment to the study and practice of the mind-body arts dates back to 1995, when she first began her studies as a massage therapist. It was then, as she studied the anatomy and physiology of the human body, that she began to explore the spirit that moves the form through meditation and awareness based movement practices.

Eventually she traded in her massage table for more academic pursuits— earning a degree in Kinesiology with special emphasis in Psychology & Neuroscience. Upon graduation, Buffy went on to completed an extensive four year professional training program in the Feldenkrais Method of Somatic Education. She now merges her practical training in movement education and academic studies with her passion for helping curious people just like you to find yourself in motion.

Feel The Love
The proof has been in the proverbial pudding: I have significantly reduced the # of medications I take/took regularly and have cut way back on the dosages of others. There has been such a reduction in pain overall that I was able to do things I hadn’t done in years, even decades, including riding my bicycle, cooking, and my main love, playing guitar. Buffy and the Feldenkrais Method have brought to me a deep awareness of my body, how I move, how I use it to deal with pain, ways to breathe deeply and relax, increase function and awareness and much, much more.
I first came to Buffy for personal training after my son was born in 2003. She helped reintroduce me to my abdominal muscles. Since then I have seen her as a Feldenkrais practitioner for postural issues and injuries. I love to Crossfit and I was having sore knees. Buffy helped me so much and brought an awareness that I still carry with me into workouts. When my son was diagnosed with developmental dyspraxia I knew Buffy could help him integrate his reflexes. Her rapport with my son was so sweet & he really looked forward to going. If you check her education you would be pleasantly surprised that she’s as smart as Spock! She’s got a passion for the physical and emotional body. She can certainly help you with yours.
