‘What if your seeming limitations are actually stepping stones to enable you to experience something greater?’
Whether you’re an elite athlete or a weekend warrior, a sedentary desk-bound worker or have a physically active job, a frazzled parent or grandparent wanting to keep up with (& recover from) the kids, or a teacher or carer who helps others but can’t always prioritise yourself, you may be someone who has ongoing physical niggles or stress in your life that prevents you from feeling or performing your best. Gentle Somatic Yoga (GSY) has the power to rapidly enhance your vitality, wellbeing, performance and quality of life.
Somatic Movement Flows® (SMFs) are therapeutic corrective movement sequences that unwind the stiffness, tension, pain & postural imbalances that affect us all at some point. SMFs dramatically increase flexibility & reduce chronic tension through brain-to-muscle re-education. The effects are cumulative, often with an immediately noticeable effect that will progress with regular practice.
Gentle Somatic Yoga was created by James Knight and inspired by the work of movement education visionaries including Eleanor Criswell Hanna, Thomas Hanna, Moshe Feldenkrais & Tom Myers. GSY is a synthesis of Hanna Somatic Education, hatha yoga, meditation, and Core Energetics.
GSY has helped diminish, correct, and/or eliminate symptoms from conditions including:
Chronic lower back pain, poor posture, sciatica, stiff neck and shoulders, muscle spasms, arthritis, headaches, migraines, knee injuries, TMJ, Parkinson’s, Multiple Sclerosis, Fibromyalgia, scoliosis, joint pain, hip pain, chronic pain, PTSD, hamstring injuries, anxiety, stress related issues and more.
