Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy is a body-mind approach to yoga therapy utilizing the concept of embodied mindfulness — which we have refined over 29 years in training over 1700 yoga therapists. The Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy courses Level 1 (4 days), Level 2 (5 days), and Level 3 (9 months) comprise the core curricula of this program and will introduce you to the basic concepts, fundamental postures, and empathetic dialogue techniques required to practice the Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy modality. The nine-month Level 3 course consists of two residency periods, Orientation (7 days), Midterm (7 days) and a supervised practicum (9 months) practiced in each student’s home environment. Unique to this yoga therapy program is that you learn 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 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.
