Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy

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 to explore and accept themselves and their life situations 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.

There are zero expectations of flexibility or prior experience with yoga! It’s all about the “issues in the tissues”. Yoga therapy is a process that merges body sensation with talk – the body with the mind – to treat, heal and enhance life. It benefits people experiencing trauma, recovery, chronic pain, depression/anxiety, stress and grief/loss as well as those who are navigating a difficult transition such as COVID, seeking their life purpose or wanting to live a more authentic life.

Reiki

Reiki is a technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by “laying on hands” and is based on the idea that an unseen “life force energy” flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one’s “life force energy” is low, it can cause illness or stress, and if high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.

A treatment feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and around you. Reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind and spirit creating many beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, security and wellbeing.

Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of spiritual healing and self-improvement that everyone can use.
