Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy


Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy Classes

Also known as Embodied Mindfulness and Mind-Body Talk Therapy, Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy is available in one-on-one sessions or in group classes. With the guidance of an experienced therapist, clients express their thoughts, feelings, and sensations, using yoga to relax and become more in tune with their inner self. This deeper attunement allows clients to explore and understand the connection between their body and what is happening in their life, creating an opportunity for growth, change, improvement, and healing.

Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy Session

Fundamental to Phoenix Rising practitioners is a non-judgmental, client-centered approach. PRYT sessions may consist of the following:

  1. Preliminaries – getting to know the client, establishing a therapeutic relationship
  2. Centering – the work begins, following the breath, paying attention to deeper thoughts and feelings, and forming an “intention” regarding session goals
  3. Postures – select yoga postures are performed in order to access and release blocked energies, painful past experiences, and emotions which are locked and stored in the body. Focused dialogue and silence are equally important in PRYT as clients work towards greater self-actualization.
  4. Integration – client and therapist reflect upon the session, looking for stand-out moments and how they might connect to what is currently going on in the client’s life. Asked to dig deep, clients come up with an affirmation and active steps they can take to begin their process of change.
  5. Follow-Up – follow-up sessions track clients’ progress and success in adhering to their action plan.
