Created and Developed by James Knight, Gentle Somatic Yoga® (GSY) is an exploration of movement that is revolutionary in its ability to improve health, well-being, quality of life, and personal performance. GSY incorporates slow, mindful movements that raise bodily awareness to heal persistent tension-based patterns in the body.
The corrective exercises, called Somatic Movement Flows, are ideal for overcoming bodily pain and dramatically increasing flexibility through the healing power of brain to muscle awareness and re-education.
GSY has been synthesized by Integrative Therapist and Yoga Teacher James Knight, E-RYT, CHSE. This progressive method is the synergy of mindful movement and meditation. It is inspired by the work of Eleanor Criswell, Thomas Hanna, Moshe Feldenkrais, and Lawrence Gold.
This Introductory Training Program will introduce you to the Gentle Somatic Yoga® practice as created by James Knight, E-RYT and CHSE. You will learn how to re-pattern the body and mind to move more freely so you can take this practice into your Yoga Teaching.
