So what is Katonah Yoga®?

Founded by Nevine Michaan over 40 years ago, Katonah Yoga® is a commingling of classical Hatha Yoga, Kundalini Yoga, Taoism, sacred geometry, and metaphor. The practice engages the body and mind in a debate between forms that are personal and habitual, and forms that are archetypal and measured.

In any class, a student brings the personal mind, body, and breath to practice. To go beyond the personal, we utilize technique, something outside of us, to reinform the personal. By introducing more informed patterns in our practice, yoga becomes origami for the body, allowing ourselves to better “fit” ourselves both physically and psychologically.

In this workshop, we’ll explore the basic tenets of Katonah Yoga® theory and play various metaphors both in practice and in breathwork. Expect half discussion and half practice with loads of time for Q & A. All you have to do is bring a notebook and an open mind!

Remember the goal of the practice is empowerment- to become whole, to go beyond the binary good and bad, loose and tight, in a forever quest to live a life of integrity and joy.

This workshop is not heated.
