Internationally-acclaimed educator, yoga therapist and founder of Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy Michael Lee joins Yoga United to offer a 4 day yoga therapy module.
In Phoenix Rising Essentials (Level 1), you will learn to skillfully guide others to align the wisdom of their body and mind in an individualized direct experience. Discover how to be a catalyst for powerful change through this research-backed, body-centered approach to clear insight and life-changing action.
This course utilizes both cognitive and experiential approaches to learning and focuses on the development of knowledge, skills and awareness. It will include presentations, group discussion, guided experiences, and an elementary application of the practice.
You do not need to be a yoga teacher or therapist to join this 4 day level 1 training - it is open to anyone who is interested in therapeutic yoga practices for their own personal development and self-care, to help cope with difficulties in life and relationships, and/or wanting to apply the practices to support others on their yoga journey, or train to become a yoga therapist.
