Gentle Somatic Yoga® Weekend: Awaken from Within – Online
September 5 @ 11:30 am - September 6 @ 1:00 pm
with James Knight, E-RYT 200, CHSE
SEPTEMBER 5 – 6, 2020
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 practicies), and healing visualizations. 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, and beginning Yoga students. 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 Knight on Saturday at 11:30 am–1 pm and 2–3:30 pm and on Sunday at 11:30 am–1 pm EDT.
In addition, you will have access to the Ashram’s Live Hatha Yoga classes at 5 pm, 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.
