What is Yoga Therapy?

In general, Yoga Therapy specifically applies yogic tools—postures/exercises, breathwork, meditation techniques, and more to address an individual’s needs—physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.  Yoga Therapy can offer support for a range of concerns but can also support people who are dealing with stress and those who simply want to increase their overall well-being.

What is Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy?

Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy is one of many approaches to yoga therapy. It is a holistic healing art that combines age old yogic tools and mind-body psychology to deepen awareness and presence. The client and the therapist co-create an exploration of the relationship between a client’s body, mind, emotions and life. It is non-directive and non-prescriptive and supports the client to make empowered vs prescribed changes that can lead to deep healing and transformation.

How does Tamara describe it?

A Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy session is engaging in an awareness of your breath and your body to create an exploration of yourself and a building of a relationship with yourself. What you do with that knowledge and relationship is limitless.

I don’t have any yoga experience; can I do this?

Yes! Yoga Therapy is for ANY body regardless of experience, flexibility, size or shape. Each session is modified to YOU and your needs. It’s more about what you experience on the inside versus what you look like on the outside.

Is this like regular therapy?

The work is therapeutic in nature, but it is not intended to replace or act as clinical mental health treatment. If you need traditional psychotherapy, I am happy to offer referrals.
