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
