Yoga Therapy

Ever had that “gut feeling?”

Your body communicates with you in many ways. And unlike the thinking mind, the body provides you with straight answers. However, you can miss these messages from your body if you’re not listening.

The essence of a yoga therapy session – specifically in the Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy style – allows you to experience ’embodied presence’ by mindfully tuning in to your body’s physical, emotional, and mental direct experience. A session empowers you to deepen the relationship among the physical, mental, and emotional parts of your self through yoga, psychology, and bodywork.

Elements of a session include physical and/or verbal supportive movement, assisted yoga postures, therapeutic dialogue, guided meditation and breath work, reflective listening, and an invitation to explore thought, sensation, and emotional patterns through the lens of your body.

People who are in the education, healing, healthcare, or helping professions, as well as those who have anxiety ,depression, stress, tension, or trauma are drawn to yoga therapy to complement their talk therapy sessions or as a stand-alone option. Yoga, mindfulness, or meditation experience is not necessary
