Yoga Therapy in the News

A great article in Time about yoga therapy , including a well-worded mention of Phoenix Rising:
A Phoenix Rising yoga therapist puts clients in assisted yoga postures and does a kind of "verbal exploration" of the present moment. The yoga therapist acts as a witness to clients' exploration, with empathy and positive regard for their experience.
Not sure why "verbal exploration" has to be in quotes... that's exactly what it is.

This is just the beginning of the coming wave of interest in body-mind therapy. I predict/hope that in the future, we'll look back at talk-only psychotherapy and express amazement that we once thought the mind could be treated in isolation from the body.
