About Ruth

Ruth Gould-Goodman is a teacher of conscious embodiment, utilizing the expressive capacity of the breath, voice, and movement to help people recognize their own mastery. Ruth began her body-based exploration of consciousness as a dance therapy at NYU’s Health and Healing Professions Master’s program. For over thirty-five years, Ruth has explored the realms of the body, movement and spirituality. She is a practicing California-licensed acupuncturist with a private practice of intuitive energy healing. Through her own unwinding from early emotional pain, Ruth learned deep inner listening and attunement to the Life force within her own body. This not only guided her back to her spiritual center, but also opened within her a capacity to heal herself from food and love addictions. As she personally cleared the dark history embedded in her cellular memory, Ruth realized the universality of her understandings and has translated the wisdom she has received into a somatically aware embodiment teaching.

In both group and private sessions, Ruth guides her students to attune to the internal river of life energy arising through the core of their own body. Initiated into listening to and trusting the impulses of their bodies, her students activate their own bodies’ capacity to self-heal. The system she has developed, La Madre Yoga, draws from the roots of yoga, marshal arts, indigenous dance, creative movement and vocal expression. Through her understanding to make breath the center of spiritual practice, she has brought forth a simple and practical approach that brings dramatic, long-term transformation in the bodies and lives of her students and clients.
