Come and discover for yourself why Gentle Somatic Yoga® is becoming so popular worldwide!
James is honored to be co-facilitating with Judy Lemon, as well to be returning back to teach at one of his favorite yoga studios in San Diego: Ginseng Yoga.
Join James Knight, Creator/Founder of Gentle Somatic Yoga® (GSY) and Judy Lemon, shamanic practitioner and trauma therapist, for an afternoon of complete restoration and insight for an empowered New Year 2020. These two Integrative Therapist pioneers, renowned for their gifts in helping others into expanded states of awareness, will be offering their passion and love in an inspirational session of therapeutic movement and ceremony….. Be held in a blissful and nurturing sacred container where you are free to simply be as you are intuitively guided into deep relaxation through gentle movement and then, later, through a shamanic journey. The collective intention for the journey will be: setting intentions for what you want to manifest in 2020.
As the practice of Yoga continues to become mainstream, people are searching for gentler and more nourishing practices in which to move. In this 3-hour introductory class, you will be invited to explore innovative techniques that combine Hatha Yoga, Hanna Somatic Education, Core Energetics, pranayama (breathing exercises), and healing visualizations. We will go to the root cause of most muscular pain and re-educate the brain-to-muscle connection. To do this, you will be guided through therapeutic corrective movement sequences called Somatic Movement Flows®. Instead of traditional stretching, these mindful sequences reprogram muscles to dissolve chronic pain, dramatically improve flexibility, and re-establish good posture. The results return us to our natural state, which is peace and well-being.This event is based on James Knight’s bestselling DVDs and Encyclopedia.
