James Knight, E-RYT, CHSE, is the Founder of Gentle Somatic Yoga and Somatic Wellness™. He has been an Experience Yoga Teacher, Certified Hanna Somatic Educator, and Integrative Therapist for 30+ years.
James was an early pioneer to bridge hatha yoga with Somatics. His passion is to inspire and encourage others to live a fulfilling life of physical, emotional and spiritual freedom.
From his combined experience as a lifelong yogi, intuitive bodyworker, psychotherapist, and movement educator, James founded a method of integrating what he discovered to be the most progressive, life-enhancing techniques into an embodied practice of mindful movement. Gentle Somatic Yoga® (GSY) was born out of years of exploring means of connecting with the deepest aspects of himself.
