About the practices:
Move Your Vision includes a sampling of practices included in Movement & Creativity Library, a library/community of 150+ Feldenkrais Awareness Through Movement® lessons and guided practices to support nervous system regulation, reduce pain and awaken creativity.
To begin our month together I will walk you through a mindful planning practice I have evolved over the years that helps me manage many to dos and bigger visions, influenced by teachings on productivity and creativity, particularly David Allen's Getting Things Done.
I'll share some templates that you can customize to fit your life and a few video tutorials for how to use the templates.
Move Create Practice:
Inspired by Authentic Movement practice and Feldenkrais principles, Move Create Practice is designed to support deep creative process with the body as muse. We will set aside the practical to-do-list stuff and create space to move your vision through embodied practice.
The Feldenkrais Method®:
The Feldenkrais Method is a process of embodied learning through movement and awareness that gives you access to your potential developed by Moshe Feldenkrais. You will receive a Feldenkrais audio download for you to keep exploring the movements of your eyes + you can explore more lessons during your free trial of Movement and Creativity Library.
Organic Intelligence is the art of attuning to your nervous system’s naturally arising impulses that move you into your life path. You will receive an Organic Intelligence audio download to practice on your own when the time is right + you can learn and explore more in the library.
Guest Contributor Workshops:
Seeing Your Nervous System
with Mary Bacha
December 10 • 8-9pm
Chronic pain and muscle tension, digestive upset, fatigue, anxiety or depression, difficulty healing, restlessness, trouble focusing or relationship imbalance- these are some of the most common signs your nervous system could be overloaded or running in different survival modes.
This introduction will help you understand the process of regulating your nervous system.
Participants will have the opportunity to share in guided explorations to tap the power of the vagus nerve, the primary neural pathway which helps us feel secure, connected with others and calm.
Begin or progress your journey of inner harmony and growth by learning to recognize the circuits, modes and parts of your nervous system.
This seminar will be especially helpful if you or someone close to you struggle with any of the above issues or if you are a health practitioner, parent or caregiver, as nervous systems develop and re-pattern with the support and influence of those who have cultivated loving presence and understanding.
Mary Bacha sees and engages the kid in everyone. She specializes in nurturing adults and children to develop resilience from trauma, deepening and lengthening their lifespan. Mary is a Registered Somatic Movement Therapist certified in Feldenkrais (R) and Body-Mind Centering (R). She teaches around the world with established practices in Seattle, Portland and online. She is currently finishing her thesis on the vagal system to complete her education as an Osteopath from the Collège d'Études Ostéopathiques de Montréal.
Creative Confidence with Amy Walsh
December 21 • 12-1pm
This is an opportunity to come together with other creators (of any kind) and shine a light on blocks and limiting beliefs that can hinder the full flower of your imagination and creative processes.
In this workshop, after messing with our creative confidence blocks and trying out new methods of expanding your vision, we’ll do a visioning exercise called “Listening to the Future.”
Amy Walsh is a visual artist, and visual storytelling and branding educator for small businesses and organizations. She teaches people with projects - whether its a business, organization, or other body of work - to communicate the content of their work with imagination, creative skill and ethical marketing savvy. She’s also super geeked out about how to unleash the limitless imaginative and culture-making capacities in all of us.
Introduction to Organic Intelligence®:
Planning to Flow with Steve Hoskinson
December 17, 2-3pm EST
In this mini-workshop Steve Hoskinson will give you insights into the “joy-filled biohacks” of Flow. Often we think of these as opposites: creativity and planning, inspiration and perspiration, surrender and control, spontaneity and training, improvisation and practice. In this workshop, however, Steve will show you how they go together, and how Flow States are a special alchemy of intention that has both conscious and unconscious avenues.
We will learn the gentle secrets for speaking the language of our creative genius, and how to attend kindly to our creative impulses— from inception to germination and then to creative expression. This workshop will help you be more productive, creative and happy!

What people are saying:
“Tiffany creates a very safe, structured yet flexible environment in which I have experienced freedom from self-editing, judgmental attitudes toward my own creative expression.” -Naomi, artist
"I’m inspired by the work you do, on all fronts, and the not perfect, growing approach you take. A great model for all of us." -Judith Morse, retired massage therapist
“I recommend Tiffany's teaching to anyone who wants more freedom to move, more self-compassion, and a healthier mind-body relationship.” –Zan Barry, health coach/ yoga instructor
“I learned to integrate my creative energy and focus into more areas of my life. I no longer think of creative time and space as so separate from the rest of who I am and what I do. As a result I feel more connected to myself and my work.” -Jackie Wolfman, Psychologist
“Creating, combined with moving seemed to come from a place of connection, of deep listening and trusting. And that familiar attitude of "simply getting things done“ now appears empty in comparison.”
-Sarah Aßmann, Musician/Feldenkrais practitioner, Bielefeld/Germany
"I was able to bridge my instinctual self with my cognitive self just a little bit more! The result is a more fluid life experience, where the results of my daily decisions reflect my authenticity and return more of the things I want in my life!" -Cody Remaklus, Professor of Music and Feldenkrais Practitioner
"I appreciated the safe, focused space in which to explore and be with my creative practice and reconnect to my relationship with the unknown." -Ean Spangler, massage therapist, artist
“What Tiffany Sankary offers to the world is nothing short of extraordinary. Through the combination of reading her book, downloading her courses, and meeting with her, I was able to imagine and experience being free from chronic pain for the first time in a decade. Her work opened up undiscovered ways of moving, new possibilities for adventure, and even new ways of seeing myself that contribute to a sense of ease, agility, creative fortitude, and graceful power.”
-Bina Venkataraman, Writer
About Weekly Vision:
“Weekly Vision helped me organize my life at the time I needed most. It helped me see the bigger picture and the little tasks at the same time. I truly believe that without this process and being a part of the lovely community that Tiffany created, I wouldn’t be able to be as productive and creative as I am today. The weekly meetings are the anchor that helps me start each week and be successful.” -Revital Ganzi, Jewish Educator
“The weekly vision meetings support my focus and clarity for the week!” - Ariane
“Over the past year that I've been engaged regularly with Weekly Vision, the process has been a container for balancing the many different pieces of a freelance life, project planning, accountability to myself and my communities, and seeing vague ideas come into fruition and progress to new projects. I appreciate showing up online to a fluctuating community of people who come together for this process -- so much better than going at it alone! It really is an approach to self-organization that dovetails nicely with all of Tiffany's other offerings. Thank you Tiffany!!” -Eve Boltax, Musician
About Movement and Creativity Library:
"These recordings are so valuable. Literally life-saving and life-giving."
-Tony Arnold, Artist-Teacher of Voice
"A vast and inviting playground..."
-Nick Brown, retired
"Easy access to guided ATMs that are nicely paced and feel supportive of my process of discovery."
-Marcia Giudice, Feldenkrais Practitioner
"Really like the creative aspects of approaching our work!" -Suellen Bartel, Feldenkrais Practitioner
"A slow, investigative, non judgmental, creative ground that nourishes my body and soul!"
-Robin Robertson, Retired Martial Arts Teacher
“A grand variety of well organized, high quality lessons in the comfort and quiet of my home! I am so enjoying tuning in to my body in this way. I love the concept of giving my brain the feedback it needs to allow my body to function optimally. And, best of all, I am already experiencing major improvements in balance, flexibility and ease of movement. It is truly extraordinary and I am delighted! Through your thoughtfulness and generosity in creating the library you have opened a door for me into my wellbeing. Physically for sure, but also on more levels than I can yet quite grasp, or articulate. I am excited for what is to come and for the fun and satisfaction I will have along the way!” -Maureen Hyman
