Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy and Mental Health Counseling

$70.00 a session

Yoga therapy is a type of therapy that uses yoga postures, breathing exercises, meditation, and guided imagery to improve mental and physical health. The holistic focus of yoga therapy encourages the integration of mind, body, and spirit. Modern yoga therapy covers a broad range of therapeutic modalities, incorporating elements from both physical therapy and psychotherapy.  (Definition provided by Good

Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy combines yoga postures and a client-centered dialogue that supports the client in being present with what is happening in the body.  Most pain is in resistance to pain, so the more you resist the more it persists.  Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy is an accredited Yoga Therapy program in compliance with the International yoga therapy standards, which there are few yoga therapy schools in the United States who meet these standards and requirements.

Pain is an energy, it does not stay in one spot, it is a mystery and its etiology is found in the body and mind. With a safe and professional environment, the client is allowed the opportunity to explore pain in the body and how that shows up not only in the body, but in relationships and day to day life.  

This form of Yoga Therapy, which the standards are upheld with the International Yoga Therapists association, is a powerful and progressive way to heal and transform pain, as well as empower the client.

And, most of all Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy helps people feel better in their body.
