The guiding principle of the Phoenix Rising Method is engaging yoga as a transformative experience to create a different state of Being while recognizing that this change must be done through the body–it cannot be done through cognitive processing.
There are six phases to the Phoenix Rising Yoga and Meditation Class, with transitions in between. Each phase moves progressively deeper, beginning with a focus on the physical body and progressing toward inward contemplation. The process is anchored by embracing an edge and breathing, to gradually shift from mental activity to a more direct, present-centered experience in the body, and focusing on the wisdom that arises.
In the final phase of the PRYT process, we bring back cognitive awareness to help us integrate what stood out in the practice and apply it to life off the mat.
The class will conclude with a short theme-based dharma talk and guidance to apply the theme in the following week. You will learn how to listen to your body to bring more wisdom, clarity, tranquility, and contentment to your life.
Camera On Policy: 🎥 We require all students to have their camera ON for the duration of class. This is for a few reasons: for your safety, for the teacher to be able to teach clearly, and for the integrity of the class. This also ensures that our classes are a safe environment for all students!
