Meadow Goldman

Yoga Therapy and Massage LLC


Welcome! Looking for a great therapeutic massage, integrative health coaching or a private/small group yoga therapy session? You will find all the details here! My name is Meadow Goldman.  I graduated with a degree in Chemistry and although I decided not to pursue sciences professionally, I am still a bit of a science geek- especially anatomy. I finished massage school and got my massage license in 2006 and have been attending trainings ever since. I have studied many modalities including cranio sacral, myofascial release, visceral manipulation, Thai massage and most recently, neural reset therapy. I enjoy working with a variety of issues from injury recovery to pre and post operative recovery. I have worked with lots of people  recovering from motor vehicle accidents.  I love to work with athletes and if desired, I enjoy educating clients about the anatomy and kinesiology of their bodies.


I began my yoga studies by completing my Bikram certification in 2004. I have studied extensively since then in many different styles including ashtanga, anusara, Iyengar and most recently completed a two year yoga therapy training with SarahJoy Marsh through the Daya Foundation.  I love the beautiful synergy of modern neuroscience and classical yoga philosophy the program taught.  Lastly, I am a certified health coach through the first through the Institute of Integrative Nutrition in 2014 and most recently I finished my health  training through the Duke University Health and Well Being integrative health coach program.  I am excited to offer the Duke program of health coaching which has documented and consistent good results with behavior change. When I am not in a health coaching, yoga therapy or massage therapy session, I am out and about kayaking, skiing, hiking, biking, dancing bee keeping or gardening.  I love to move! I look forward to meeting you!


Integrative Health Coaching

Integrative Health and Well Being Coaching is a growing field that helps people reach their health and well being goals. A health coach can help bridge the gap between what a medical professional recommends for your health and how to make the lifestyle and habit changes you need to achieve those goals.

Are their health changes you would like to make but don't know how to start? Or maybe you have tried to make changes in your health but haven't been able to sustain them? Has a new health issue come up and you would like to address?

If you work with a chronic illness or want to prevent illness and maximize wellness, health coaching is for you !


Health coaching is unique in that it doesn't prescribe or recommend any particular diet, exercise routine or other specific medical protocol. It treats you as the expert on your health and life and works with you in your particular life situation to get clear on your health vision and why it is important to you. I can provide resources if necessary, but the foundation of health coaching is that nobody but you lives in your body or lives your life. The expert on you-is you! Fortified with clarity around your vision of the healthiest version of you, we partner to develop goals and create small action steps to achieve them. We also identify and develop plans for possible challenges and obstacles that might get in the way. And finally we build in systems of accountability to make sure your goals are met and long lasting. 

People have successfully used health coaching for conditions such as:

  • Managing complex or chronic conditions such as high blood pressure, diabetes, high cholesterol, autoimmune diseases, or cancer

  • Losing weight and increasing fitness

  • Modifying diet to include more healthy, nutritious food

  • Managing stress and achieving better work/life balance

  • Improving communication and relationships

  • Quitting smoking or other harmful habit

  • Transitioning through life’s stages and navigating new challenges

  • Ensuring well-being is prioritized before, during, and after a pregnancy

  • Identifying root causes of disease and gaining motivation to meet wellness goals

If you think 1:1 health coaching would benefit your health goals, reach out for a 20 minute complimentary information session where I can answer any questions about your particular situation. If it turns out health coaching would be a good fit, I offer 6 session packages over a 3 month period that can be renewed if desired. I also offer a single  60 minute micro-session if you would like to try the process or have a  very specific short term goal to work on. See the details of the sessions under the "BOOK NOW" button at the top of the page.


Yoga Therapy

What is yoga therapy? It is a several thousand year old set of techniques that help bring a body, mind and spirit into balance. What a yoga therapy session looks like in the modern world can vary depending on the imbalance one wants to address. Part of yoga philosophy recognizes that we are born into a body and at some point, that body will go out of balance! Imbalances may present as a physical  (pain with movement, joint pain, headaches, digestive issues, hormonal imbalances to name a few) or it may present as emotional/psychological imbalances (anxiety, depression addictions, disordered eating etc). A session can include asana (physical postures), rehabilitative exercises, breath work, mindfulness techniques, meditation and mantra (re-patterning thoughts through chanting or singing).  Sessions are usually done one to one or in a small group of 1-3 people. How a session looks depends on the needs and desires of a student. There are numerous benefits to yoga therapy, but some of the most relevant are:


  • Stress reduction

  • Improved sleep (excellent for insomnia)

  • Better balance

  • Promotes healthy life habits (decreased cravings for alcohol, cigarettes, food etc)

  • Less pain with moving

  • More satisfying relationships with oneself and others

  • Decreased anxiety and depression

  • A sense of confidence in a yoga practice or other physical activity that you won't hurt yourself

 Massage Therapy

In its modern form, massage therapy seeks to reduce stress, relieve pain and keep the musculoskeletal system functioning optimally. I integrate various modalities including Swedish and deep tissue, cranio sacral, visceral manipulation, myofascial release, neural reset therapy and Thai massage. Each session starts with the most important modality: listening. Every session is designed to address the issues you are experiencing that day. Massage therapy is an excellent choice if you are looking to

  • Reduce pain from injury or chronic postural imbalances

  • Pre or post surgery

  • To relieve soreness and pain after working out/sporting event

  • Preventatively as part of a training/athletic routine

  • To assist in better digestion

  • To help the nervous system balance, relieve stress

  • Recovering from an auto accident

Whatever your massage needs are, I would be happy to work with you!

Meadow has been an incredible massage therapist.  I have had chronic neck and shoulder pain for a few years.  I have seen other massage therapists and also a physical therapist in the past.  After the second appointment the numbness and tingling has left my right arm.  My range of motion has increased and pain decreased in my neck, actually gone.  One of the things I like best about seeing her is her integrity and her caring attitude. She has always listened to me and has never made me feel unimportant or that my questions are trivial.
