Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy:
This yoga therapy is available when booking with our Certified Yoga Therapist Lyndsey Needham. Through assisted yoga postures and an open ended, non directive, dialog process, Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy Private Sessions offer you the opportunity to explore what's happening in the present moment-physically, emotionally, spiritually and intellectually. It is with these awareness's that you may then draw a connection between your experiences and your daily life. Lyndsey will guide you through an experience using focused breathing techniques and yoga postures in order to allow the client an opportunity to verbalize in-the-moment experiences - thoughts, emotions, sensations. As with any therapy, receiving more than one session increases the client's ability to receive/experience the work. There is no right or wrong way to be in this work, Lyndsey will validate your experience instead of "correcting" it by providing a safe space full of presence and non judgmental witnessing.
Many have credited yoga therapy with helping them heal from stress, depression, anxiety, trauma, abuse, grief, eating disorders, body image issues, aging, sickness and more. Clients often report improved physical and mental well being, greater emotional stability, clearer thinking and a new relationship to stress.
What to Expect:
The yoga therapist will guide clients through an external, physical experience, as well as an internal, self reflective experience. This allows you the opportunity to release tension, re-examine personal beliefs and habits that no longer serve you and facilitate healing & growth.
Yoga therapy is great when combined with group classes and other wellness services like massage and acupuncture, for whole-person health and healing. It is suggested to start with at least 3 sessions.
