GENTLE SOMATIC YOGA with James Knight
- You think you are not “flexible”, therefore in the past you thought yoga was not for you
- You want a therapeutic approach that will erase pain and stiffness permanently
- You gave up your yoga practice due physical limitations from an accident or injury
As the practice of Yoga continues to become mainstream, people are searching for gentler and more nourishing practices in which to move. In this 2-hour introductory & restorative workshop, you will be invited to explore innovative techniques that combine Hatha Yoga, Hanna Somatic Education, Core Energetics, pranayama (breathing exercises), and healing visualizations.
Cost: $75 AUD
Venue: TBC will be in the area of Brunswick and Brunswick West
Gentle Somatic Yoga® (GSY) is a unique “art of movement” practice that combines traditional yoga postures, Hanna Somatic Education, breathing techniques and healing visualizations. By incorporating slow, mindful movements that raise bodily awareness to release tension-based patterns in the body, GSY meets you where you are currently and gently guides you into greater states of inner peace and joy.
Instead of traditional stretching, GSY utilizes brain-to-muscle re-education to reprogram muscles. The self-corrective and therapeutic exercises, called Somatic Movement Flows®, are ideal for overcoming bodily pain, dramatically increasing flexibility, and reversing postural imbalances.
What if your current seeming limitations are actually just stepping stones to enable you to experience something greater? Each time you practice Gentle Somatic Yoga you will experience greater aliveness, freedom and creativity. GSY is revolutionary in its ability to improve health, well-being, and personal performance. This overflows into every aspect of your living, breathing, sensing, moving, being (Soma!). Ask yourself, are you ready for something greater in your life?
