Phoenix Rising is a bridge between the body and the soul, a fusion of ancient yoga poses and contemporary psychology. Gentle touch and supportive movement provided by your practitioner enable a deepened awareness of the body. Exploring breath, body, mind, and spirit; you are given the opportunity to heal through the wisdom that your body holds. Everything you need to know is already inside you, and with the support of your Therapist, you can access this inner knowledge, moving towards transformation.
As you are guided in and out of gentle poses, you may encounter a physical edge, a place where sensations are felt at a heightened level. During class, we must support ourselves alone, therefore, we rarely have the chance to stay at this so called edge and explore it. While your therapist physically holds you in this safe space, you can allow yourself to explore what lies beyond the physical sensations that arise. At your edge, physical, emotional, or otherwise, you can begin to transform, letting go of what you no longer need to carry, and listening to the inner guidance that is available to you.
Everyone experiences their body and their session in a different way. Sometimes we laugh, cry, shaking or even remember forgotten experiences. All of these expressions are a form of release. Often the body appears as a map of your life; the way in which you appear in a pose reflects the way in which you choose to live. Painful experiences get stored within us in the form of tension, stress and even physical pain. Phoenix Rising practitioners are the supportive witness to your journey inward as you discover what your body holds. Becoming aware of old habits allows you to release them, for awareness is the first step towards change. Open dialogue gives you a chance to be heard, and to hear yourself, which can be a quite empowering experience. In a way, a session feels like communing with oneself.
Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy is appropriate for everyone. You do not need to have had any yoga experience. Yoga therapy is beneficial in times of struggle when answers or guidance are needed. It encourages healing on a profound level in times of grief and sadness, and promotes inner strength when transition is upon you. The tale of the phoenix bird rising from the ashes symbolizes the act of being reborn. You are at all times in your life dying to who you have been and being born to who you are becoming. Let go of old baggage you no longer need to carry ~ reborn without, renewed and free.

About the Therapist
Jenni was introduced to her first yoga class 11 years ago. Curious about the emotions that were coming up for her in class, she became fascinated with the idea of merging movement with contemporary psychology, and thus found Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy. She finished training as a practitioner herself in 2004, and in 2006 she completed her teachers training at the Hatha Yoga Center in Seattle. She taught Hatha and Vinnyasa classes in the Seattle area for 3 years before moving to Arcata to start a small farm with her family.
Jenni’s flow classes are often influenced by the ideas of Phoenix Rising. She encourages listening to and respecting the body in order to learn from it. She moves her students through poses that encourage a deepened awareness of where the body holds tension, supporting deep release. Jenni’s gentle touch and calm atmosphere create a meditative environment. She hopes to provide each student with the chance to move towards self-transformation and growth. Jenni also offers private yoga therapy sessions through Om Shala. You can visit her website at www.innerjourneyyoga.com to learn more.
