An Advanced Specialty Practice Course
with Michael Lee, MA, Dip.T., Dip.Soc. Sci, C-IAYT, E-RYT500
We know that an individual yoga practice can help with putting us in a better place in all we do including engaging our relationships. Yoga Therapy for Couples takes this much further. Michael Lee, the Founder of Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy, began working with couples in the context of yoga therapy several years ago. Since then he has developed an integrated approach that has been very successful in helping those in committed relationships to find deeper connection, greater awareness and understanding, and more meaningful communication. The couples he and his students have worked with are generally able deal with issues more effectively, experience greater intimacy and find that an “embodied and mindful” approach to relationship often has many amazing and unexpected results.
