Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy.
Though at times we look for outside sources to guide us, somewhere deep inside we know that we must slow down, reconnect with ourselves, and listen to our own inner voice. Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy, through a combination of classical yoga techniques and elements of contemporary body-mind psychology, encourages this deeper connection with self.
From lightly strengthening to restorative - the posture work is based on individual needs, age and stage of life. Informed by Kripalu, Iyengar, Trauma-Sensitive yoga and Somatic Experiencing – this practice is holistically-geared to meet each specific person exactly where they are. Sessions are for one or two people.
