"I took this training during the COVID lock down. I was experiencing extreme anxiety. James’s calm, kind and methodical approach  helped me to meet every moment as it actually was, verses freaking out about the pandemic. Gentle Somatic Yoga focuses on mindful moments, and his teachings helped me to get me through a stressful time."

James excels at creating an environment that is collaborative, integrative, and invitational. He is always open to exploring new possibilities and encourages the contributions of others.

In this way, I’ve witnessed how he develops relationships built on mutual respect. I was and remain impressed with the breadth of knowledge and skills he has acquired from different methodologies, and how he has integrated these aspects into GSY, and his lifestyle.

My experiences with James have always been positive and have sparked enthusiasm for new possibilities.

I'd recommend studying with James to anyone who wants to dive deeper into exploring and knowing themselves, for health care providers who want to support their clients better, and for those who are inspired by being part of a collaborative community that continues to evolve and shift. 

Jean Wishloff, GSY Teacher
James is a fountain of knowledge and at peace with himself. He shares openly both aspects with his students in a playful, humorous way allowing me to understand his message in a light way. Somatics and slow-movements yoga are truly our medicine.
Alicia Schwartzman

I really enjoyed the course! I do plan to continue rest of the 100 hours! This has helped my back so much I am really excited to share it! The other part that I really find for me is that it releases so much tension from my mental, emotional and energetic body. This is definitely a profoundly deep practice and I am looking forward to exploring the many layers!!
