KATONAH YOGA ® is a syncretic Hatha yoga practice developed by Nevine Michaan of Katonah Yoga Center over 40 years. She and her teachers incorporate classical Hatha yoga with Taoist theory, geometry, magic, mythology, metaphor, and imagination in a practical framework designed to potentiate personal and communal well-being. Framing the practice, maps of time and personal space are defined and refined. Themes using asana as origami, manipulating form for function, and developing a sense of personal measure are incorporated in Katonah Yoga practices. Katonah Yoga is organized around three principles of esoteric dialogue: all polarities are mediated by trinity; the universe has pattern, pattern belies intelligence; by virtue of repetition there is potential for insight. Disciplined techniques are organized for revelation through revolutions.
In this five part series you will be taught a commingling of classical Hatha yoga poses integrated with theories of sacred geometry and measure that serve to develop stability, ability, vision and dimension, peppered with Pranayama to move breath through the body’s terrain, serving as a conduit between the body and mind to soothe the soul and build an identity. The goal of the practice is to become whole, in order to live a life of integrity and happiness.
Participate in your own well being, all you have to do is show up. Whether you are new to yoga or someone who has practiced elsewhere, Katonah Yoga will be new to you. S A T U R D A Y S 10:45am – 12pm DATES: 1/5, 1/12, 1/19, 1/26, 2/2 $125 for series
This special one night workshop will focus on relaxation, stillness and breath as we head into the WINTER SOLSTICE, a practice of being reflective and gaining insight to make way for your future potential.
The darkness of the winter solstice invites us to turn inward, tend our roots, to be still and quiet and to honor the fullness of our embodiment; body, breath, mind, heart. This practice is a place to plant the seed of intention for the coming season and to be grateful for the wisdom winter brings in teaching us about the need for withdrawal as an essential part of renewal. All are welcome.

In this four hour intensive, you will learn how to read a body and how to to use yourself as a leveraging tool to adjust and redirect your students’ experience, giving your teaching more dimension.
Developing your own vision is the key to learning how to adjust well. There are certain criteria that all good adjustments share. Beyond a demonstration of good mechanics, this intensive will serve as an experience of how to use information magically; touching someone in a real way, moving someone so they can get out of their own way, affecting someone so they have an insight.
The goal of an adjustment is to change someone’s frame of reference. For the most part, since personal style summons one’s unconscious habits, adjusting another practitioner’s pose offers a different angle, a new direction, or a re-orientation.
We will work pragmatically as well as theoretically, moving through asanas in order to discover how best to approach an adjustment and move a body. Fine tune your capacity as a teacher while developing your relationship to touch, and enhance your ability to see more dimensionally in order to enrich another person’s vision.
This class is designed for all levels: new teachers, experienced teachers and those who would like to get feedback and insights on adjustments and why it’s important to help the student to navigate.
