Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy, through a combination of classical yoga techniques and elements of contemporary body-mind psychology, encourages this deeper connection with self. Through this deeper connection, we are able to know ourselves more fully.
Definition of Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy
Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy is a holistic healing art. Using age-old yogic and modern therapeutic approaches to deepen awareness and presence, we are able to help others accept themselves more fully. Out of this acceptance, they are more easily moved to embrace the opportunity for change, growth, and enhanced well-being in body, mind, emotions, and spirit.
A Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy one-on-one session consists of practitioner-assisted yoga postures and a dialogue that is client-centered, open-ended, and non-directive. The client is facilitated through personal experience in the present moment — physically, emotional, intellectual, and spiritual richness in relation to the bigger picture of daily life — work, play, family, and relationships.
Reasons to Take on Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy
There are some very important reasons why we’ve been around since 1986 and have certified over 2,000 Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy professionals.
First, the process is kind of like embodied mindfulness on steroids. Clients refer to it as a source of awareness and tap into body wisdom. Neuroscience explains it as experience-based attentional plasticity. Focusing on the breath and internal bodily sensations changes the brain, strengthening the experiential attention neural pathway. It is then easier to access these pathways and we integrate attention to internal experience into daily life.
Second, engagement in these programs includes education more than training. Training often implies following a protocol or format, where education, on the other hand, taps into wisdom from within and discerning moment-to-moment choices based on skills, knowledge, and experience.
Third, we have a fully accredited IAYT program track and have years of experience and credibility not only in the professional yoga world but also in the medical and psychotherapy communities nationally and internationally.
Our graduates work with a wide and varied population serving many needs including relationship issues, cancer survival, work stress, trauma, PTSD, ADHD, dealing with change, aging, menopause, empowerment and life enhancement, and many more. About 90% of program graduates say that Phoenix Rising education was a transforming life experience.
