“Within the city of Brahman, which is the body, there is the heart, and within the heart there is a little house. This house has the shape of a lotus and within it dwells that which is to be sought after, inquired about, and realized. Even so large as the universe outside is the universe wihtin the lotus of the heart. Within it are heaven and earth, the sun, moon, the lightening and all the stars. Whatever is in the
macrocosm is in the microcosm also.”

– Chandogya Upanishad
(sacred Hindu text dated appromimately 2000 BCE)

 


“WHERE DOES THE BODY END AND THE MIND BEGIN? WHERE DOES THE MIND END AND THE SPIRIT BEGIN? THEY CANNOT BE DIVIDED AS THEY ARE INTERRELATED AND BUT DIFFERENT ASPECTS OF THE SAME ALL-PERVADING DIVINE CONCIOUSNESS”

 


– B.K.S IYENGAR
PRIVATE SESSIONS

 

Sarah offers one-on-one  sessions where clients can access their own innate wisdom. Using simple dialogue, movement, and the power of presence, this practice supports clients on an inward journey where memories, experiences, thoughts and sensations can emerge in a safe, non-judgmental environment. As the bodymind’s network of thought, emotion and physical sensation is explored and/or released, awareness creates space for the possibility of transformation and personal growth. As insights emerge, clients use their own wisdom to implement practical steps toward living more fully in their bodies and their lives.

 

WHAT IS PHOENIX RISING YOGA THERAPY?

Yoga is a time-tested practice that roots us back in ourselves and encourages our innate connection with breath, body and therein the present moment. Contemporary techniques of Western psychotherapy invite us to reflect on who and how we are and express our truths accordingly. Together, they give us the opportunity to find our center, the place where insights can emerge. This powerful framework for transformation, healing and growth is what defines Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy.

 

HOW DOES IT WORK?


Imagine for a moment that your body, mind, thoughts and emotions are not separate entities but rather woven aspects of the same integrated whole called bodymind. Your memories, feelings, beliefs and sensations are all maintained on a cellular level, the story of your life is literally embodied. In this way, your body is a map, containing all the information you need to know to feel healthy and whole. Rather than looking outside for answers or remedies, consider the possibility that everything you need to know is already inside of you.
