Course Theme: Find Your Inner Yes

When Somas connect in shared intention they enliven the creation of something completely new and novel. Throughout this training we will participate in experiential activities as a group and as individuals that will energize the alchemy of yoga (union). Together we will activate a heightened collective awareness that will help us to deepen into the connections between and among one another, creating a unique learning opportunity. Come and experience a shared sense of gratitude for what we will co-create as a Somatic Tribe.

Add-on Certification Option

After you have successfully completed this GSY Advanced Study training, you will receive a GSY Certificate Of Completion demonstrating your commitment to the art and science of Gentle Somatic Yoga® . Additionally, you have an opportunity to go the extra mile and become a Certified Practitioner of Gentle Somatic Yoga by purchasing the certification option ($250, see link in next paragraph) and passing the certification’s Final Teachback requirement. This is done by submitting a Final Teachback video (full instructions HERE). Your teachback video will then be evaluated by our Certification Staff, after which you will receive a detailed report card with personal feedback. Once certified, you will be acknowledged with a GSY Practitioner Certificate as having demonstrated your competence and skill for providing Gentle Somatic Yoga in an official capacity, either one-on-one or in a group setting, as part of your professional instruction service(s).

If you would also like to become certified, you can add the Certification Option to your cart HERE. Earlybird applies as well. You can also purchase it separately at a later date (Earlybird cutoff applies).*
