An interview with the founder of Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy, Michael Lee about how yoga therapy can help people to heal lifelong patterns that hold them back in life. Michael suggests that when we experience emotional tension associated with difficult life events, we also experience physical tension. He reports that holding certain yoga postures, with the support of a therapist, can help you access memories associated with tension, and help to release that tension through the body. He describes how to listen to your body to connect to the beliefs that may be restricting you in often unconscious ways. He gives two examples of how a yoga therapy session might proceed and the kinds of outcomes that can follow. Yoga therapists are trained in some of the methods of psychologist Carl Rogers to help create a loving presence that makes it safe for clients to really notice what is going on inside.
