Anita Teresa Boeninger is an Integrative Health & Sexuality Educator, visual & performance artist, and founder of The Embodied Femme. She provides group and private sessions in mindbody therapies, somatic movement, and what she calls "sexuality integration" training for health and vitality. She spent ten years studying and training with renowned masters of various spiritual traditions, and has been working in the field of alternative healing since 1999.

In 2013, she appeared on the Dr. Oz Show, and has been interviewed on Dr. Radio, Your Beautiful Child Radio, and Listen-Give Talk Radio, sharing her expertise on vitalizing practices and sexual well-being.  She has been a four-time presenter at the national women's conference, "Goddess on the Go," and most recently produced & hosted the Sex & Medicine Summit. 

She also presented at the Heal Thy Practice Conference in Westchester in 2014, and appeared as an expert panelist for the Queen County Lawyer's Assistance Wellness Program Series.  

Prior to starting her private practice, Anita was a Heath Educator in the Department of Integrative Health Programs at NYU Hospital for nearly five years, and founded her private healing practice, SOMA Wellness Arts, in March 2013.  During her tenure at NYU Langone Medical Center (NYULMC), she innovated an extensive array of corporate wellness education programs and facilitated pre-surgical preparation workshops with thousands of patients.  

Afforded a wide latitude of creativity in implementing new programs, she innovated her own curriculum and designed a class called "Fluid Movement," for the Initiative for Women with Disabilities Center at the Hospital for Joint Diseases.  She taught this class for women with chronic illnesses & disabilities for over four years.   She trained in New York with Dunya McPherson, founder of Dancemeditation TM,  and Dr. Martha Eddy, a pioneer in the somatic movement field, and continues to collaborate with experts in the field of healthy sexuality and mind-body integration.

Anita has delivered a plethora of health and wellness presentations to corporations and organizations in New York City over the past 8 years, including Bank of America, West LB, Cotton Inc, Rockefeller University, the You Can Thrive Foundation, NY Insight Meditation Center, the Creative Center, Integral Yoga Institute, Bellevue Hospital, the Hospital for Joint Diseases, Gensler Inc, and many others.  Her on-going work with clients revolves around increasing body-mind integration for vibrant health, creativity and heightened somatic intelligence.

Embodiment Through Art

​Anita is also a visual and performance artist and has performed with NY-based dance and theater companies in a number of venues, including the Brooklyn Museum, the Metropolitan Building Salon series, the Producer’s Club, Jan Hus Theater, Iguana, TAI Group, and others.  Her work with theater, film and art photography directors Fabrizio Chiesa, Paul B. Goode, and Erin Flowers, as well as Open Door Acting Company founders, Jerry Brody & Carl Stillitano, has profoundly influenced her presentational style to include elements of transformational role-play.  In the last 3 years, she has directed, produced and starred in a multi-art show (to sold-out audiences) co-produced and starred in two short films by Fabrizio Chiesa, starred in a long-form music video (IGNONAUTA), and initiated a documentary film project on conscious movement in 2012.

Anita is available as a speaker, trainer, or consultant for panels, seminars, workplace wellness, and health fairs.  She offers on-going panel discussion salons, courses, and private training for men & women through her work with The Embodied Femme.
