Helping you come home to your soul!
Helen Sage, Owner & Founder
Like you, I am many things. Healer. Yoga teacher. Energy worker. Massage therapist. Mom. I love to frolic around the mountains on my bike or skis. I relish playing with my kids, and I am always on the lookout for some new zany adventure—inside or out, on my own or with others.
It’s a full life, and yet each of those identities and experiences informs the way I work with my clients. I bring my full self and each of the modalities I practice to you, so you can feel better and heal, physically, mentally or emotionally.
My journey as a healer began in college, when I earned a Bachelor’s in Health Science in Athletic Training from Duquesne University. In many ways, I loved it. I learned about the body, the physics and mechanics of body movement, and how to take care of athletes and sports teams.
But working in the training room, I knew in my gut and heart that there was more to healing than ice and exercise. I also noticed that intuitively using my hands helped injuries heal faster and got players back on the field sooner.
Following my instinct, I attended the NW School of Massage in Seattle. Five-hundred training hours later, I felt so much closer to my true calling as a healer. Yet I also knew that some important puzzle piece—some understanding of the human body—was missing.
That’s when I discovered Forrest Yoga, a form of yoga that emphasizes healing and taking that transformation off the mat and into your life. After studying with founding teacher Ana Forrest herself, I earned my teacher training certificate and healed an old whiplash injury from college. I loved it so much that I have now accumulated over 1,000 hours of training in Forrest Yoga.
Integrating that knowledge into my practice, along with my training in health science and massage has allowed me to give my students a more rounded experience when coming to my classes. Yummy hands on assists and support to the body when/where needed are staples from me in all of my classes.
Of course, no one’s transformation is ever complete—the process of growth and renewal is ongoing. So when I discovered the subtler realms of energy work, I earned a Level 2 certification in Reiki and now use it in every massage and in my restorative yoga classes. It is an amazing and powerful way to release muscles and clear emotional residue.
If you’re looking to find yourself again, recover from an injury faster, or just need to relax, I would love to talk about how I can help you. I seriously love doing all of this! Contact me!
Much Love & Light
