Join me for a 6-week Phoenix Rising Therapeutic Yoga series!

We are all chronically stressed!  You can’t avoid it these days – it literally surrounds us in everyday life and virtually no one is immune to it.  It can cause a range of concerning symptoms, and not just the psychological ones we often associate it with. It can also contribute to the development of a multitude of physical and mental disorders.

Can we learn to manage the ever-present Change and Uncertainty that have become the only thing we can be certain about?  Rather than being chronically stressed, can we learn to become Resilient?  That’s the capacity to recover quickly from difficulties; knowing how to cope in spite of setbacks or barriers.  In some cases to even use those setbacks as the fuel to fire up our actions!

Overcoming stress and becoming resilient is possible.  Research shows that developing practices such as mindfulness, meditation, self-care and healthy nutrition and exercise choices will go a long way to support a transition to a new you – less stressed, more resilient, better able to thrive in this ever-changing world.

Join me for this comprehensive program “Take a Deep breath In!” grounded in an 8-week Yoga and Meditation series based on the Phoenix Rising Method plus additional practices, exercises and workshops that will support you in developing healthy lifestyle and self-care practices.  That will teach all parts of you–mind, body and spirit–to better manage stress and enjoy all that life has to offer.

Phoenix Rising Yoga and Meditation classes are well suited to online delivery, as I will guide you using my voice to move – or be still – in what ever way suits your body.  Many aspects of the class may be done with eyes closed as this will deepen your connection within and encourage external distractions to fall away.  PRYT Yoga and Meditation classes follow the 6 Phases of the Phoenix Rising Method, as highlighted in a recent Yoga Journal article.  All you need is a quiet space, some room to move, and a few props such as bolsters, cushions or yoga blocks, a strap and a pile of blankets.  How well do you connect to yourself through your body? Do you listen to its wisdom and learn from it? How can present-moment embodied awareness through yoga inform your life, the choices you make, and help create the life you desire?

“The body is the unconscious mind.” ~ Candace Pert, PhD, Molecules of Emotion

So often we run from our uncomfortable sensations and feelings, never allowing them to teach us. Yet, if we engage them, they can take us somewhere new, often into deeper levels of awareness.  If we can learn to connect with our Truth, and make choices from that place, we can begin to reduce stress, become more resilient and ultimately create the lives we want. 

The 6-week series includes:

  • A Weekly Phoenix Rising Yoga and Meditation class
    • Through a variety of supported Yoga postures, synchronized with the breath, plus a guided Breath Meditation you will calm the sympathetic nervous system thereby decreasing stress, and allow your mind to find presence through stillness.
    • Learn about ancient Yoga Philosophy and Psychology as a lens to understanding life in the 21st century.
    • And as you learn to listen to your body and connect with your Inner Wisdom, you will develop a sense of deep knowing about the healthy choices that are available to you.
  • Weekly Self-Care Challenges
  • Community of like-minded people
  • Bonus – recorded 40 minute yoga class for you to use during the week
