This track is suited to yoga teachers and other professionals who want to learn the core Phoenix Rising approach. It is open as well to students from other schools seeking transfer credits to other programs and who want to integrate the Phoenix Rising modality into their yoga therapy skills.
The Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy Training Level 1, Level 2 and Level 3 courses are the core curricula of this program and will introduce you to the basic concepts, fundamental postures, and important dialogue techniques required to practice this “modality.” Level 3 is a nine-month program consisting of two residency periods and a supervised practicum created in each student’s home environment. Unique to this yoga therapy program is that you learn how to practice a discreet “modality” with established protocols that are transferable to a variety of populations, needs, and work environments.
Students are assigned mentors who give feedback, guide studies and personal growth, and help students refine techniques. Acceptance into Level 3 is based on an Application and proficiency after Levels 1 and 2.
During the training, we focus on each student’s personal, as well as professional, development; we believe that the quality of the yoga therapy practitioner’s ability to achieve a profound level of presence is a key factor in how well a client benefits from a session.
