Discover the wisdom of your body

Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy combines yoga, embodied mindfulness, and humanistic psychology to help you become present to the felt-sense of your embodied experience – physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual. Using your body as a vehicle to engage the present-moment helps you gain clarity, enhance self-awareness, uncover limiting core beliefs, reduce stress and anxiety, process trauma stored in the body, and take tangible steps toward the life you want.

What is Yoga Therapy?

Here’s Bo Forbes discussing Yoga Therapy as a general practice, which I feel very much aligns with the approach I offer. Established 30 years ago, Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy (PRYT) is the pioneering yoga therapy school to borrow from Humanistic Psychology and create a client-centered approach that focuses on the mind-body-emotion connection with incredible application to mental health issues such as anxiety, depression, and traumatic stress disorders. We at PRYT call the process of interoception, or tuning-into the body, “Embodied Mindfulness”: the practice of becoming present to your internal embodied experience (rather than focusing on alignment within postures). This process helps you get present, find clarity, and deepens awareness about how you relate to yourself and your life, therefore allowing for empowered and meaningful change in beliefs and behaviours that keep us stuck in unhealthy patterns. Learn more about how Embodied Mindfulness can help with stress, anxiety and trauma recovery.
