About Anita Bueno
Anita is a landscape architect and a Feldenkrais practitioner®. She has joined the two professions, exploring the connections between mindfulness, movement, self-care, and creativity. [It really is all connected folks!]
For 10 years, she designed public lands and recreation areas for the US Forest Service. In 2006, she founded BuenoLuna Landscape Design [now Cummings Landscape Architecture], a design/build firm in the San Francisco Bay Area. Her work primarily focused on combating climate change with ecologically functioning landscapes at the residential-scale.
A diagnosis of rheumatoid arthritis in 2011 changed everything. She became a Feldenkrais practitioner in 2017.
Now Anita uses mindful movement and the process of embodied learning to inform how she works, how she relates to herself and others, and generally, how she moves through life. Surprisingly, this has shifted 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. She is a licensed landscape architect and a guild certified Feldenkrais practitioner.
Her diverse background includes time living in India studying yoga and Carnatic dance and music, traveling her ancestral lands of Hispaniola and Central America, working as a bicycle mechanic, selling books, welding and pouring bronze sculpture, estate gardening, rock climbing the western US, bike touring Mexico and New Zealand, professional figure skating, and commercial fishing in the Bering Sea.
For fun, Anita likes to watercolor, fix things, play drums, grow food, and make her own clothes.
Anita currently lives in Central NY.
