Philosophy

roy bergmann hillary bergmann

The Mindful Body activities are based on trusting the wisdom of your body. The paths to health, wholeness and enjoyment are unique to each of us and can be discovered by focusing attention within our bodies where sensations, feelings, emotions and intuitions abide. Through a consistent practice of "mindful" or focused activities, we learn how to tap into our inner intelligence and make choices leading to a life of integrity, fulfillment, peace and harmony.

Who We Are

The Mindful Body is a family run wellness center founded in 1994 by Roy Bergmann. After a 30+ year career in investment banking, Roy decided to leave corporate America and peruse his passion for yoga, massage and wellness.   Hillary, his daughter, came on board in 2002 to help run the business.   Their passion to create a nurturing and healing community is carried out by a skilled and thoughtful staff.   We hope you will come join our community!
We are located in the Pacific Heights neighborhood of San Francisco. We offer a variety of yoga classes (65+ per week taught by over 25 yoga teachers), and inspiring workshops. Additionally, we have a staff of over 45 massage therapists trained in a wide range of therapeutic modalities.

Our mission is to provide high-quality instruction, ideas, and resources for self-responsible health in a supportive community with acceptance, care, and laughter. Our tranquil yoga center invites self inquiry and promotes peacefulness through asana, meditation, and massage.

"The doctor of the future will give no medicine, but will interest her or his patients in the care of the human frame, in a proper diet, and in the cause and prevention of disease." -- Thomas A. Edison
