Welcome to Yoga Feldenkrais Therapeutics

 I hope you enjoy taking a few minutes to find out how we can work together to support your health goals.
My name is Margie Hellman. Over the past 25 years I have worked with hundreds of clients developing and honing a unique and highly effective approach for empowering and healing using the tools of Yoga and Feldenkrais.
My approach addresses you as a whole person, body mind and spirit. When we meet, I will take a history, observe your movement and breathing patterns, and listen to what matters most you and together we will explore the art and science of mind body medicine.
Modern science is now revealing what the Yogis have known for centuries; the mind and the body are connected. This is why Yoga is the perfect antidote to many chronic health concerns and is a very enjoyable and satisfying way to improve your health.
I can help you improve the way you move, breathe, think, and act in the world. As you will discover this leads to sustainable changes that improve your health from the inside out.

Making an initial step toward reclaiming your health and vitality can be daunting to start. I offer a gentle supportive role from the beginning of your journey, travelling gradually and sustainably toward improvement of your health and vitality.

My method is a slower, gentler but very effective way of practicing yoga that will support health and well being as you age. This form of yoga is ideal for people of middle age who are trying Yoga for the first time, or people wanting to include Yoga as a compliment to medical treatment for cancer, back pain, mental health or trauma.

I look forward to sharing my love of mind-body medicine with you.
