A Healing Place
A healing and teaching practice
in Philadelphia

In today's busy world, it can be difficult to find the time to take care of yourself.

Yet it's exactly this busy-ness that makes self-care so important!  And there are so many choices! With all of the styles of yoga, tai chi, meditation, even chi kung that abound today it can be difficult to decide what to do.

We all know the directive -

  • practices like yoga, tai chi and meditation to relieve tension and stress and improve your physical and emotional health
  • healthy eating
  • regular exercise
  • healing therapies

The answer is simple:

Find the practice,
the style and the teacher
that work for you; so that
you will look forward to classes
each week and in time
develop your own personal
practice in addition to your
weekly instruction.

You'll be surprised and delighted to see how simply one class per week can make a change - and over time, you'll notice that the benefits 'overflow' into the rest of your life.

A Healing Place
offers classes, workshops and retreats
and private sessions that are good for you
- body, mind, heart and spirit.

There's no pressure to perform and no dogma. You will find, and develop, what suits your needs. There is no single 'place', either. Open classes and workshops are held at several locations in Philadelphia. Private group workshops and classes can be brought right to your workplace. And private individual sessions take place at any of the class locations or in the privacy of your own home. You might say A Healing Place is a place without walls; not so much a physical space but rather a state of being.

my heart and spirit. My intention is

to create a safe and supportive

experience, that “healing place”

which is not so much a physical space

but rather a state of being.”
