Embracing the Wisdom of your Body
The practice of yoga reconnects body, mind, and spirit and increases self-awareness, allowing you to initiate your journey to self-healing. Your first step toward abundant health is awareness of what’s happening now-- in all areas of your life. Physical symptoms, thoughts, emotions, and relationships are connected. Attaining vibrant, good health may involve making changes in any or all areas, and yoga will give you the knowledge to do so.
Individualized yoga practice
Yoga asana is offered as an adjunct to talk therapy. It is a rich source of information about where you may be feeling stuck. People new to yoga sometimes want to explore movement in the privacy of an individual session.I will encourage you to use yoga asana as a way of being fully present with yourself and your body's wisdom.
Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy (60 minutes)
This is a one-on-one, hands-on yoga session designed to help you listen to the wisdom of your body. Muscles and tissues store memories you may have consciously forgotten. The body holds on to old hurts and fears, and we often don’t understand why we can’t release them. The yoga therapist gently guides and physically supports you through a series of postures, frequently calling your attention to what’s happening in the moment- with your body, your breath and your emotions. I will assist you in dialoguing about your moment-by-moment experience. You will be empowered to discover lost parts of yourself and to release what no longer serves you. A Phoenix Rising session takes place on a floor mat or in a chair in a quiet, private space and begins and ends with reflective meditation. You will leave the session with your own unique wisdom and with a next step to carry you forward in your daily life.
