I have found so many benefits from the practice of yoga and meditation . My background is Social work and in the spring of 2002 I completed a bachelors degree in Child and Youth Care at the University of Victoria. During this time I discovered Yoga, I continue to practice daily and it has been a big part of my life for many many years . A few years ago I suffered an injury that caused me chronic pain. In an attempt to deal with this pain I tried many different healing methods . All of these disciplines dealt successfully with the pain but not with the emotional aspects of the trauma created by the injury . Eventually I met a teacher who suggested I try Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy to deal not only with the physical pain but the emotional pain as well. After only one session I felt immense emotional and physical relief. Phoenix Rising Yoga therapy is a unique and powerful approach that uses the body as a path to awareness After a few sessions of this therapy I felt compelled to learn more about this unique approach and began my studies to become a therapist. Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy is a beautiful combination of discourse and body work . In the spring of 2015 I completed my certification to become a Phoenix Rising yoga Therapy practioner. I always seek to empower my clients and to honor their individual life paths.
