Donna Maria Zadie

Wellness is the complete integration of body, mind, and spirit - the realization that everything we do, think, feel, and believe has an effect on our state of well-being.

With over 20 years of experience in the fields of massage, bodywork, and holistic practices, Donna Maria Zadie and Julia Bayardi teamed up to create the Philadelphia School of Massage and Bodywork.

 

Our journey started as a leap of faith in the summer of 2012, with a vision of creating a new sanctuary for massage therapists in Philadelphia.  We were thrown curve balls and the road became long and difficult, but the challenges made us stronger.

Our journey started as a leap of faith in the summer of 2012, with a vision of creating a new sanctuary for massage therapists in Philadelphia.  We were thrown curve balls and the road became long and difficult, but the challenges made us stronger. Three years later, we’ve persevered with the love and support and our family, friends, and colleagues, who stood by our sides through every up and down (and there were many).

 

The vision of a school, where dedicated students could receive a high level of education, is now a reality. Our passion for teaching and healing have nurtured it to life and we are committed to creating a community that will benefit its students for years to come.

 

With enthusiasm, we present to you …the Philadelphia School of Massage and Bodywork.

Donna was wonderful, very relaxed and professional. She used just the right amount of pressure and made sure that I was comfortable throughout the session. I went in with pain in my left shoulder and left feeling much better.

Jessica's Restorative Yoga with Yoga Nidra was a very wonderful experience. I came out of the class feeling fresh and very "restored" to a calm, peaceful state. But the best thing of the class is the Yoga Nidra. Yoga Nidra is something that is very rarely taught in this area and it is a very welcome class. With Jessica's guidance, we all entered an mental state intermediate between awakeness and sleeping where it is possible to "reprogram one's brain". This isn't new age Hocus Pocus, but a real effect (as the benefits have been measured scientifically). Actually, the Yoga Nidra is what brought me to the class. Other people teach "Restorative Yoga" but no one else seems to teach in in conjunction with Yoga Nidra. So, even if the class was just Yoga Nidra I would have taken it! I am obviously very satisfied with the class, so keep me informed of any other classes where Yoga Nidra is involved.

My CEU instructor was Karen Giglio. She was great and I would definitely recommend taking a class with her. Donna was the person I spoke to for booking the class. She was very friendly. I wish you all the best for the new school.
