 About Sessions: What is Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy? Is it for me?

 A Testimonial: The Essence of Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy


Q:  I have pain in my body.  How does it connect to my life?

A:  Your body has recorded everything since you began. It's physical

     'edges' are a key tool for tuning in. 


             Watch as Soleil uses her back pain to get clear on a life struggle:



 Q: Do I have to be flexible or know yoga to do this work?

 A: No.  Most of Soleil's clients have never done 'yoga'. 
     Think of this work as a form of self-study (a big part of yoga), rather than 'doing
      yoga' exercise - as the Western world thinks of it today.

 Q: Do only women do this work?

 A:  Soleil works with men and women equally. 
        In addition, couple sessions are offered between intimate partners, friends, 
        parent-children and siblings.
