Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy Earns Accreditation

Oct 31, 2014 11:52AM

At the beginning of October, the Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy (PRYT) training program was accredited by the International Association of Yoga Therapists (IAYT), making it one of only 15 schools worldwide to receive the honor. The accreditation process is not an easy one; Michael Lee, PRYT founder, says, “It's been a long road. We are excited and relieved to be at the end of this road."

PRYT is a holistic yoga therapy that focuses on each client’s unique history, health and personal situation in order to help get to the core of the current issues and challenges they are facing physically, emotionally and spiritually. PRYT’s mission “is to support people with moving in the direction of a life worth living—a purpose-driven and meaningful life experience with less stress and anxiety and with fulfilling work and relationships.”  

Nora Vimala Pozzi, a 2001 graduate of the program and local PRYT instructor, is offering a special discount to new and returning clients to celebrate PRYT’s accomplishment.
