Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy
Individual Sessions
  
The Yoga Therapy style that I practice is Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy (PRYT), it is a guided restorative yoga experience. It feels like the union of yoga and massage, with a subtle/gentle dialogue for sustainable embodiment.

PRYT is also the means by which I educate self-care techniques with clients, to aid in developing a daily self-maintenance practice.
The benefits of yoga are as powerful as they are numerous. Through the use of guided assisted postures, the therapeutic effects are approachable for all physical abilities.

This is a session of exploring stressors and finding the path of least resistance for relaxation (aka disarming triggers).
  
 
Benefits:
  • Relieves excess stress, anxiety, and tension
  • Reducing pain and swelling of an injury
  • Conditioning performance muscles for athletic events
  • Enhancing the feeling sensation of embodiment

Restorative Yoga and Massage (All Levels)
Inspired by Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy​



Step-by-step summary:
  1. Establish a baseline ("draw a map") of the tension that is present now.
  2. Set the purpose/intention for this session.
  3. Work within the pattern of tension to update it and release clutter; i.e. by connecting the dots of awareness and feeling how everything is connected.

I intend this class to be a 'guided personal practice' experience; meaning that while I'm leading a basic whole body sequence, I'm asking participants to discover for themselves what their body needs to feel restored. This allows you the freedom to explore what really matters to you (why you are in a restorative yoga class) while also learning new approaches for self-care.

Starting out with a mindful breathing exercise to engage a relaxed yet present mindset, we establish a baseline of our bodily awareness. Once centered, we progressively flow through different muscle groupings to "update our map" with where our body's tensions are. Using various props, such as blocks/ straps/ foam rollers & tennis balls, we'll massage out knots and discover the needed stretches for restoring balance and equilibrium. Verbal cues such as 'connect the dots of your tensions/sensations', 'breathe into the spot that makes sense right now', 'the breath is the stretch', etc.. enable us to access many different angles and dimensions of the body.

The general physical focus of this class is on the hips (especially flexors), torso, shoulders, neck and legs, as they are the standard weight bearing distributers of the body. However, once the basic concepts are established, one quickly learns how to access/release anything from anywhere because ultimately everything is connected.
