About Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy
Phoenix rising yoga therapy was founded in the 1980s by Micheal Lee it is one of the pioneer yoga therapy schools in North America. Lee first became interested in the transformative power of yoga when he moved to the United States from Australia to live and teach at the Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health in Lenox, Massachusetts. Combining his yoga experience with his background in education and psychology he completed a dissertation on the therapeutic benefits of yoga for life-related issues including stress management, and gained a Masters degree in Holistic Health Education from Norwich University in Vermont.
“Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy is an holistic healing art. It invites presence and awareness, rather than prescribe treatments. Using age-old yogic approaches to deeper presence and awareness, we are able to know ourselves more fully. Out of this knowing, we are more easily moved to embrace the opportunity for change, growth and enhanced well being in body, feelings, thought, and spirit.”
~Michael Lee, Founder of Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy
