A Somatic Journey to Sacred Center through Gentle Movement & Sound

The Nedlands Yoga Centre is honoured to host James Knight, GSY founder on his first Perth visit.

Join James Knight, creator/founder of Gentle Somatic Yoga® (GSY) and Gwen Siciliano, GSY Certified Practitioner, for an evening of complete restoration. These two Movement Education pioneers, renowned for their gifts in the emerging field of Somatics + Yoga, will be offering their passion and love in a restorative session of therapeutic movement and vibrational healing. Discover for yourself why Gentle Somatic Yoga is globally recognized for offering immediate and lasting relief from chronic pain, stiffness, and other tension-based patterns.

As the practice of Yoga continues to become mainstream, people are searching for gentler and more nourishing practices in which to move. In this 2½-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 visualisations. We will study 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 class is suitable for Yoga teachers, body workers, active seniors, and beginning Yoga students. Regardless of age or ability, you will learn practical and effective skills which you can immediately incorporate into your movement practice.

Somatic Sensory Activation & Integration through Vibrational Alchemy:

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 sound. Bring a votive candle (contained), an altar item (sacred objects, e.g. gem/crystal, photo/image that speaks to you, flowers, etc.) and your favorite pillow/blanket, along with personal restorative intentions for yourself.


If the individual is open to receiving Sound it has a delicious way of speaking to every cell in our body. – Cherry Chapman

Cherry Chapman is an Existential Counselor with an interest in somatic healing. From her experience, she strongly believes that sound can significantly contribute to the body’s natural inclination to maintain balance, to compensate and to heal. At the conclusion of this class you will enjoy 20-30 minutes of sound healing by Cherry that is meant to support your body’s somatic integration.
