Gentle Somatic Yoga
This class will incorporate slow, mindful movements that raise bodily awareness to heal persistent tension-based patterns in the body. The corrective exercises, called Somatic Movement Flows designed by James Knight, are ideal for overcoming bodily pain and “sensory motor amnesia” while dramatically increasing flexibility through the healing power of brain to muscle awareness and re-education. The positive effects of a somatic yoga practice are cumulative. Over time and with consistency, you will notice that you will become stronger, more flexible, and capable of maintaining feelings of peace and well being.
