james knight – gentle somatic yoga® workshop series

June 3rd – 5th, 2022

The Yoga Lounge

826 – 200 Main Street, Canmore, Alberta

Facilitated by James Knight, E-RYT, CHSE

James Knight has been an E-RYT, CHSE (Certified Hanna Somatic Educator), and Integrative Therapist for 30+ years. He was an early pioneer to bridge hatha yoga with Somatics. His passion is to inspire and encourage others to live a fulfilling life of physical, emotional and spiritual freedom.

From his combined experience as a lifelong yogi, intuitive bodyworker, psychotherapist, and movement educator, James founded a method of integrating what he discovered to be the most progressive, life-enhancing techniques into an embodied practice of mindful movement.

Gentle Somatic Yoga® (GSY) was born out of years of exploring means of connecting with the deepest aspects of himself.

~ On a personal note ~

James Knight has been teaching in Canada since 2014, but has never been to the province of Alberta.

Upon meeting Jeff Mah, and having him join our online training courses, we are honored to be invited into the community of The Yoga Lounge and sharing Gentle Somatic Yoga® (GSY).

This GSY workshop event series has been in the planning phases for over 2 years (since the beginning of the pandemic). James is very excited to finally have the chance to be in-person sharing his deepest passion: movement education, meditation, and learning/growing in global community.
