The natural healing force within each one of us is the greatest force in getting well.

~ Hippocrates

I was born in Cleveland Ohio and raised on the East Coast. I’m a proud mama, hopeful human and curious by nature. As such, I have completed over 500 hours of certified yoga education with formal training in meditation instruction and Reiki therapy. I believe in natural solutions to healthcare and place a large emphasis on client education. I offer private, customized, yoga lessons in Metro-West/South Coast, MA.

As we age, our practices need to change. The hard part may be accepting that this is true! But the fun part is letting our curiosity lead us to solutions that are kind yet strong, simple yet informed. Practices that meet us and move us towards optimal health and connection to self.

Private sessions are a safe and effective means for customizing a yoga practice to meet a client exactly where they are in body, mind and spirit. Private instruction empowers clients to apply what they learn from one-on-one instruction to their own personal practices whether at home or in a public group class.

Having begun my own personal practice in 2001 as a result of a back injury, I aim to offer sustainable practices for real bodies. Whether you are new to yoga or looking to bolster your current practice, consider a private lesson package.

Self-care is healthcare and together we will design daily practices that welcome, support and encourage your body to adapt to changes while remaining connected to your highest self.

Thank you for connecting,

Sammy B Goodrich

private instruction & healing

Private Yoga Lessons

Customized sequences better support a student’s sense of being at home in their own body, heart and mind. Yoga, when practiced skillfully, can show us where we are working both on our mats and in our lives.

Meditation Instruction

For those looking to begin a personal meditation practice. Meditation helps to anchor us in knowing our truest selves, to cultivate the confidence to experience our lives in a more moment to moment way.


Reiki brings us to a state of relaxation and acceptance in which our bodies remember how to heal themselves. Reiki leaves you feeling refreshed, relaxed, and more in tune with yourself.

Essential Oils

Essential oils can be used for a wide range of emotional and physical wellness applications. Learn more about essential oils and how they can support you in living a more natural lifestyle.

Touchstone Blog

Writing is healing for me. Pen to paper. Fingers to keypad. Communicating a heartfelt observation feels natural. I don’t claim to be a writer. Punctuation and metaphor are mysteries to me. I majored in Spanish. No. I am not a writer. But the process of writing is giving me back to myself. Thank you for taking an interest.

*According to a “touchstone” is a true friend without criticisms and judgement, who loves you unconditionally.
