Through innovative gentle yoga sequences, also referred to as Somatic Movement Flows, James Knight will guide you to unlock your body’s response to stress and muscular pain. This is accomplished by going to the root cause: subconscious patterns stored in the brain. Learn how to increase your strength and flexibility by re-programing your brain-to-muscle connection.

Gentle Somatic Yoga (GSY) is an effective movement re-education designed to eliminate lower back pain, stiff neck, frozen shoulder syndrome, and all other chronic pain challenges throughout the body. GSY is a synthesis of Hatha Yoga, Hanna Somatic Education, Core Energetics, Pranayama, and Meditation.
