Gentle Somatic Yoga Weekend: Awaken from Within – Online
March 13 @ 12:00 pm - March 14 @ 1:30 pm
with James Knight, E-RYT 200, CHSE
MARCH 13 – 14, 2021
In this online workshop, discover why Gentle Somatic Yoga (GSY) has gained worldwide recognition as a method for immediate and lasting solutions to chronic pain, stiffness, and other tension-based patterns in the body. Experience a weekend of complete restoration and inspiration for renewed lifestyle choices. 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.
You will be invited to embody progressive and innovative techniques that combine Hatha Yoga, Hanna Somatic Education, Core Energetics, pranayama (breathing practices), and healing visualizations inspired by quantum physics. As the practice of Yoga continues to become mainstream, people are searching for more gentle, kind, and nourishing ways to move.
This is a great introductory course for Yoga teachers, Yoga therapists, bodyworkers, active seniors, beginning Yoga students, and anyone interested in expanding their skill set for self-care or self-healing. Regardless of age or ability, you will learn practical and effective skills that you can immediately incorporate into your private sessions, classes, and home practice.
Live sessions with James on Saturday at 12–1:30 pm and 2:30–4 pm and Sunday at 12–1:30 pm ET.
You will have access to the video recordings for 8 weeks after the program ends, until May 9.
In addition, you will have access to the Ashram’s Live Hatha Yoga classes at 5 pm ET, recorded Ashram meditations, and inspiring talk with Sri Swami Satchidananda. You will also have access to an online social community to connect and communicate with other participants about this course.
