Gentle Somatic Yoga® combines traditional Hatha yoga postures, Hanna Somatic Education, Pranayama (breathing techniques), meditation, and healing visualizations. This method of yoga was created by James Knight and inspired by the work of his teachers Eleanor Criswell, Thomas Hanna, Moshe Feldenkrais, and Lawrence Gold.
