As a profession, Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy allows you to bridge the gap between your career and your spiritual life. Phoenix Rising Training and Certification Programs offer a unique opportunity for a fulfilling career in this powerfully effective healing modality that combines the best of ancient yogic wisdom with the cutting edge of contemporary therapeutic insights.

You will learn to guide clients safely to the edge of deep physical sensation. Here, with awareness focused on those sensations, you enter into dialogue. Rather than try to fix anything, you simply help clients listen to their body's wisdom — listen without judgment or a need to change — which helps release underlying emotions or beliefs that often manifest in chronic aches and pains.


"Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy helps you develop a strong and safe container so that feelings can begin to flow and emotional blocks can be released. Whether you are suffering from anxiety or depression, PRYT is a wonderful adjunct treatment along with your practice of yoga to bring balance to your emotional and physical body."          
-Amy Weintraub, MFA, E-RYT, author of
Yoga for Depression

"I have just completed Level 1 and I cannot compliment you enough on what an amazing training it was. The teacher and participants created a rare and amazing gift — a loving, safe and supportive group that easily facilitated the work."       
-Jodi Rodgers, South Miami, Florida

Kate Bentley, Director, Student Support and Community Outreach Coordinator, is a Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy Practitioner and Teacher. Kate, along with Jen Munyer, currently runs the Phoenix Rising Training Center. She also has a private Yoga Therapy practice in Bristol, Vermont. Kate has been practicing yoga for over ten years and when she’s not immersed in Phoenix Rising she’s outside exploring, crafting or hula hooping.

jen picJennifer Munyer, MA, LMT has been immersed in the study and practice of yoga for the past decade. In her first forward bend, she had an experience that piqued her curiosity about the relationship between her thoughts and patterns and how they show up in her body. This curiosity was the cornerstone for all her studies, including a BS in Psychology from the University of Florida, a 700-hour massage therapy certification, an MA in Health Arts and Sciences from Goddard College and, of course, a complete immersion into the Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy philosophy and practice. She is certified as a Professional Practitioner, a Phoenix Rising Yoga Teacher and a Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy Group Facilitator. She is honored to be able to support this organization by teaching programs and assist in the daily operations of programming.

In Level 1, you will be introduced to the principles and practice of Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy. Much of the learning is experiential, including how to apply techniques for assisting clients in yoga therapy postures. You will also gain an understanding of each posture's metaphysical significance and how it is used to support the transformation process. Precautions, physical benefits, counter postures, variations, preparation, and transitions are also covered. You will learn how to guide clients in a body scan to determine areas of tension and freedom and general guidelines for yoga therapy sessions.
