Embody Your Wholeness
Greetings, I’m Hillery Woods.
I’m a Holistic Health Coach, Licensed Massage Therapist, and Movement Integration Specialist.
My own health story overcame deep grief, sexual trauma, spinal injury, and chronic fatigue. Living off grid, on Indian land, and traveling as an land-defender-activist showed me how to live close to nature, find my inner medicine and strive to reclaim my whole-healed self. I learned ancient systems, sustainable living skills and dove deep into our ancestral medicines.
We have lost trust in ourselves and connection to the natural world. Do we continue to let ourselves be separated from each other? And continue to let this crumbling health care system jerk us around with poking, prodding, testing and unneeded surgeries? Or do we take our power back and learn the skills to know our bodies better so we can identify our needs and monitor our health signals to keep on track to homeodynamic health?
It’s that critical.
You need caring, available support beyond your best friend, life partner, and Family. A beacon that calls you back to yourself and uplifts your frequency to surpass the deep programing that keeps you from being well.
Imagine your life where you have the skills to design your wellness rhythms in concert with who you are deep down inside, your true Nature.

Wake up to your own Mastery with yoga
There’s more to yoga than performing sun salutations and forcing painful positions. My focus is on deepening the connection to yourself so you can manage chronic stress, pain or injury with intelligence. I love making yoga FUNctional, safe, intuitive and inspiring. Incorporating correct postural recruitment, breath awareness, cross-lateral movement, dynamic stillness and slowing way down so we can listen to our bodies. This is all about supporing your inner discoveries and learning how to move in every day life with more awareness and skill. Active Chair Yoga and Holistic Movement Medicine are both offered through Shanteel Yoga Sanctuary in Sellersville, PA, please register below. If you are interested in arranging a private Tibetan Heart Yoga class, contact Hillery
Active Chair Yoga Thursdays, 9:30-10:30AM
Most impressions of Chair yoga conjure images of sitting in the chair for the whole practice. In this class we explore natural movement with the chair as a prop for support and mobility. The chair is a biodynamic prop that helps develop strength for balance and moving joints for a fuller range of motion. Not only are you practicing in a creative way that honors your body, but you learn short vinyasa sequences that you can do at home. Movement variety is key to changing the way the tissues respond to static loads on the joints. This approach, including self-massage and floor practices, will inspire your already established practice or give you a great new beginning to starting and continuing your yoga journey. $5 Community Class

All levels practice with progression and regression. Give your body the medicine it needs to thrive every Wednesday. $5 drop in or use your membership!
Massage & The art of deep release
Safety is my priority. It’s the foundation of all I do and how I discovered my calling. When I’m giving a massage, my focus is on your comfort. That’s why I ask “is your temperature comfortable?”, “is your position comfortable?” The more comfort I can help you receive, the more you relax and that relaxed state provides safety to your nervous system. In that place of safety, your nervous system can receive new information that honors your true nature and who you are at the core. We return to our inherent balance. Even if it’s just for 75mins, that information gets imprinted and the benefits ripple out.
My Self-Care Services address moving pain and stagnation, inviting vital energy, mental/emotional balancing, expanding breath awareness, internal visualization, and whole body revitaliztion. Look over the options to find what massage will be your match. Your nervous system and unchanging nature are my guides. May you find refuge in new helpful habits, enhanced immunity resilience and rest in your whole self.

Patient Care Experience and Preventive Health Care
The industry standards for health care and patient progress are now changing to engage patient responsibility and the experience of the patient to be steered in the right direction to achieving their health care goals. The deeper we dive towards knowing ourselves means we can be the captain of our health ship. That’s why Roots & Wings motivates patient participation through self-help homework and practices. This is where treating ourselves well becomes the daily standard.

Ayurveda for radiant health
Total health achieved through knowing your Nature. The five elements in nature are Ether (Space), Air, Fire, Water and Earth. These elements have characteristics and qualities all their own and when combined form the building blocks for our individual and collective Nature. Ayurveda is based in applying self-help tools for daily health maintenance. Anti-aging practices include sinus health, digestive health, mental health, lymph and skin health, and pacifying chronic stress.
We all have tensions in life and bad habits that sneak in when we’re stressed out. What if you had the tools for making healthy lifestyle choices even under stress? Trends in healthy living come and go and are not one size shapes all. Ayurveda emphasizes your unique nature and what choices to make regarding food, sleep, fitness, rest and work should all support that one thing: Choices that are right for your constitution. Explore how an Ayurvedic Consultation will be the best way to design your daily self help habits.
