Yoga Therapy using the Phoenix Rising Method


In this yoga therapy training, with 3 certificate levels, you’ll learn to bridge the gap between yoga, mindfulness, and therapy for a totally unique approach known as the Phoenix Rising Method. The PRYT process teaches you how to guide clients/students to be present and listen to their bodies as a tool for learning and healing. Become an expert in skillfully guiding others to align the wisdom of their bodies and mind in individualized and group experiences.

In this yoga therapy training you will: 

  • Learn how to combine physical yoga with deep personal inquiry.
  • Gain tangible tools to apply yoga therapy in one-on-one sessions, classes, groups, and with couples.
  • Learn hands-on and verbal techniques to help clients process mental or physical health ailments through their bodies. 
  • Learn to find The Edge and how to play in that space to expand one’s comfort zone. 
  • Become a yoga therapist or enhance your current profession as a yoga teacher, mental health professional, or other health care and bodywork provider.
