“Neuroscience research shows that the only way we can change the way we feel is by becoming aware of our inner experience and learning to befriend what is going on inside ourselves.”
― Bessel A. van der Kolk, The Body Keeps the Score: Brain, Mind, and Body in the Healing of Trauma
Melanie became a certified PRYT (Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapist) in 2009, and is currently on the PRYT faculty as a mentor for therapists in training and also in the process of certification in Therapeutic Life Mentoring through the PRYT model. She looks forward to sharing her deep appreciation for this unique modality of PRYT!
A combination of classical Yoga and elements of client-centered, body/mind psychology, Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy is based on the belief that true healing takes place from the inside out.
In a typical session, you are guided through a sequence of carefully selected, assisted postures designed to bring you deeper into an internal experience. As you are supported in the postures, the practitioner guides you in dialogue about what’s happening in your body.
This unique combination of postures and focused dialogue techniques often has a synergistic effect, enabling you to readily access information stored in the body, and to gain new insights into long-standing patterns and chronic physical and mental tensions.
Each session concludes with an integration, to assist in processing your experience and finding the connections with your life "off the mat" and exploring how you can bring new-found insights into action.
Whether working with pain that stems from major trauma such as an accident or unexpected illness, or from the less recognized strain of life transitions, chronic stress or self-neglect, yoga therapy offers a powerful, safe and natural path to well-being.
