MINDFUL BY DESIGN

Hi! I'm Anita (she/they)

I am a licensed landscape architect and a Feldenkrais® practitioner and I use both skillsets to create connections between people and our planet.

I reconnect folks to the environment through residential design, community gardens, and through activism for underserved communities.

I also teach classes and workshops to help folks connect their mind & body for stress management, pain relief, heightened learning and creativity.

Curious? Contact me for a design consultation or complimentary class.

Anita is an awesome teacher with an infectious enthusiasm.” - Halina G. - client

About Anita Bueno

Anita is a licensed landscape architect and a guild certified Feldenkrais® practitioner

For 10 years, she designed public lands and recreation areas for the US Forest Service. In 2006, she founded a design/build firm in the San Francisco Bay Area called BuenoLuna Landscape Design that focused on designing residential-scale, ecologically functioning landscapes.

A diagnosis of rheumatoid arthritis in 2011 changed everything. She became a Feldenkrais practitioner in 2017.

Now Anita uses mindful movement and slow learning to inform her designs, how she works, how she relates to herself and others, and generally, how she moves through life. Surprisingly, this has moved her towards becoming the best version of herself thus far, and she looks forward to sharing what she's learned about process!


Anita has an MLA from UC Berkeley and a BA from Colgate University in philosophy and religion. 
Their diverse background includes time living in India studying yoga and Carnatic music, traveling their ancestral lands of Hispaniola and Central America, working as a bicycle mechanic, selling books, welding and pouring bronze sculpture, estate gardening, rock climbing, bike touring, professional figure skating and commercial fishing in the Bering Sea.  
For fun, Anita still likes to figure skate, watercolor, fix things, play drums, grow food, and make clothing. 
Anita currently lives in Cazenovia, NY with her pitty, Carla.
