Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy Essentials
Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy catalyzes powerful transformational change. It bridges the gap between yoga and mind-body psychology. This form of mind-body therapy uses present-centered embodied awareness established through the use of yoga postures, hands-on assists, and therapeutic dialogue to facilitate growth and healing. Clients are skillfully guided through a process that brings them to a state of self awareness and inner presence, from which profound wisdom can arise. The result is clear insight and a practical, action-based approach to lasting life change.
In this introductory intensive to the PRYT Method, you will gain greater insight into the mind-body connection and learn to skillfully apply the tools of yoga in individualized direct experiences.
Gain deep understanding of the Phoenix Rising Method™ and its paradigm of life change based on the intersection of Yoga, Buddhism, Psychology, and Neuroscience.
Who can benefit from this program:
Yoga Therapists, Yoga Teachers, Mental Health Professionals, and others who want to empower students and clients to create more powerful, meaningful, and fulfilling lives in both classroom and practice environments.
What to expect:
- Learn the distinction between present-centered awareness (direct experience) and narrative referencing, and why this distinction is essential from a neuroscientific perspective.
- Learn skills to engage others in direct experience through the body so that they can immerse themselves into a profound state of awareness.
- Acquire tools to engage others in integrated mind-body practices.
- Gain understanding of the process of change. Explore the interaction of the body, breath, mind intellect, and emotions.
- Acquire tools for body-mind integration that leads to life changing action, and an understanding of how to apply this approach in your own classes or private practice.
As a mental health therapist, studying PRYT has deepened my process work skills, and raised my comfort level working at the mind-body interface.
