This program provides Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapists with the skills and knowledge required to organize, promote and facilitate eight-week group programs focused on helping people cope with stress and stress-related symptoms, manage the trauma of recovery from change, adapt to change, engage the process of healing and recovery, and generally become more empowered to deal with daily life. Based on Michael Lee’s book, Turn Stress Into Bliss, the program follows a progressive, thematic approach to awareness, choice and change.
* Graduates of this program work with clients coping with stress or illnesses such as cancer, heart disease, high blood pressure, addictions, irritable bowel syndrome, and many more. They also work with specific populations such as teens, parents, people transitioning careers, veterans, and so on.

Training consists of an 8-week long pre-residency preparation, a 7-day residential intensive, and a six-month practicum in your home area with mentoring by experienced faculty. Successful completion of an eight-week group program in your community with mentoring in all aspects as you go is a vital part of this program and the reason why graduates successfully offer groups after graduation.
The Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy groups have changed participants’ relationship to stress and dramatically reduced stress-related physical and emotional symptoms, and empowered them to lead lives with meaning and authenticity. This multifaceted approach can be easily delivered in a variety of medical, professional and community settings. Our group facilitators also find that running groups is a great way to expand their practice and serve more clients with a cost effective program. Graduates also claim that their individual one on one practice is greatly improved by skills learned in this program.
