Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy
You’ve heard the expression “a gut feeling”? Chances are you know just what this expression means because you’ve felt it. Some signal from the body that tells you something, usually with a sense of certainty. The body has a myriad of ways it communicates. And unlike the thinking mind, the body provides you with straight answers.
The essence of a session allows a client to explore sensations happening in the present moment. Elements of a session include supportive movement, dialogue, guided meditation, guided breath work, reflective listening, and an invitation to explore thought, sensation and emotional patterns through the lens of the body.
Clients are drawn to Yoga Therapy both to complement individual therapy and as a stand-alone treatment option. Therapists often refer clients to Dr. Simpson when a body-based approach is indicated to move therapy forward when clients feel “stuck.” One only needs a sense of openness and curiosity for this work.
No yoga experience is necessary.
