What is Yoga Therapy?
Yoga Therapy is a fairly new modality and is used around the world as an effective way to support the nervous system and help us to self-regulate.
It differs from a more popular "Yoga" practice in that it really focuses on the whole person's individual and unique ways they experience life. In addition, a Yoga Therapist has extensive training to look at the client as more than just a body.
I have been trained with Phoenix Rising School of Yoga Therapy since 2019.
"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 process that is client-centered, open-ended and non-directive. The client is facilitated through an experience of him or herself in the present moment. And what ever happens in the present moment — physically, emotionally, intellectually and spiritually finds richness in relationship to the bigger picture of how that client is being in the world in daily life — work, play, family and relationships." - PRYT website
