Phyllis Moses began her study and practice of yoga over thirty years ago. Her love of yoga led her to become a Certified and Registered Yoga Teacher (R.Y.T.) at the 500 hour level, and is a Certified Yoga Therapist through the American Viniyoga Institute. She is a member of The International Association of Yoga Therapists.

Her interest and passion for working with pregnant women and couples began with the birth of her own child twenty-three years ago. Phyllis found that doing yoga during pregnancy was extremely beneficial and became a certified HypnoBirthing® practitioner as a way to further enhance a positive birth experience.

She holds a B.A. in Psychology, is a Certified Hypnotherapist, and a Registered Counselor in the state of Washington.

Phyllis has a focus in therapeutic yoga (adapting programs for various populations, and individuals), and prenatal yoga. She’s been a pioneer in the field of comfortable birthing for over twenty years and was delighted to find HypnoBirthing as a course to articulate mother-child led birthing. It has been her greatest joy to see her grandchild born into the world using the tools of HypnoBirthing. Phyllis is a compassionate teacher who brings depth and wisdom to her clients.

Phyllis has extensive experience in the field of addiction recovery and has developed the program for Residence XII. She works with people individually for the benefit of their recovery program, teaching how to incorporate a holistic approach suited to their needs and interests. She is also available to consult with teachers who would like to implement these tools into their programs, or do research in the addiction field. Phyllis has given trainings on how to adapt yoga tools to this population, as well as speaking to institutions about how to incorporate a yoga program into their curriculum.
