James Knight, E-RYT 200, CHSE

James has been an Integrative Therapist for over 25 years. He is a Yoga teacher (E-RYT 200) and Certified Hanna Somatic Educator (CHSE). From his combined experience as a lifelong yogi, intuitive bodyworker, psychotherapist, and movement educator, James created a method of Yoga that integrates what he discovered to be the most progressive, life-enhancing techniques into an embodied movement practice. Gentle Somatic Yoga was born out of years of exploring means of connecting and integrating the deeper aspects of the whole Self (Soma).

James’ passion is to awaken the possible for people living with challenges related to physical limitations. He does so by inspiring and encouraging them in discovering freedom through mindful movement. This allows the Soma to make generative, fulfilling choices on every level—mind, body, and Spirit.
