Phoenix Rising sessions are one-to-one and last about 90 minutes. Having a session is more like receiving bodywork and a therapy session at the same time than attending a yoga class. The practitioner moves your body into supported yoga postures and uses simple dialogue techniques (derived from person-centred therapy) to enable you to become present to your embodied experience in a safe and contained way. Through receiving this work, you may be able to let go of physical and emotional tensions, release energetic blocks, and experience a deeper sense of connection and awareness.

In Phoenix Rising, the practitioner holds the space and acts a guide, but you are in charge of what happens. You won’t be asked to enter into any dialogue or posture that doesn’t feel right for you.

People come to therapy really for blessing. Not so much to fix what’s broken, but to get what’s broken blessed.James Hillman
