Gentle Somatic Yoga: Awaken the Possible

with James Knight, E-RYT 200, CHSE

September 13 - 15, 2019

Join James Knight, a pioneer in the field of Yoga and Somatics, for a weekend of complete restoration. Discover for yourself why Gentle Somatic Yoga is globally recognized for offering immediate and lasting relief from chronic pain, stiffness, and other tension-based patterns.

As the practice of Yoga continues to become mainstream, people are searching for kinder, gentler, and more nourishing ways to move. In this program, you will be invited to explore innovative techniques that combine Hatha Yoga, Hanna Somatic Education, Core Energetics, pranayama (breathing exercises), and healing visualizations.

Our emphasis will not be on stretching muscles, but reprogramming them. We will study the root cause of all muscular pain and reeducate the brain-to-muscle connection through exercises called Somatic Movement Flows. The results return us back to our natural state, which is peace and well-being.

This introductory course is suitable for Yoga teachers, bodyworkers, active seniors, and beginning Yoga students. Regardless of age or ability, you will learn practical and effective skills which you can immediately incorporate into your classes and/or home practice.

James is also offering his GSY Practitioner–Level 2 Certification at Yogaville, September 7–13.
