KATONAH YOGA CENTER Frequently asked questions

What is Katonah Yoga?

Katonah Yoga is a technique, not a type of yoga. 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. It is inclusive and informative.

May I drop-in to classes?

Yes, all classes are drop-in only. Please bring cash or a check and leave time to sign-in before class in the Katonah Yoga Shop next door to the studio. Please note: workshops and trainings usually require pre-registration.

Are there class packages or a membership to join?

We strive to integrate a casual environment and therefore we do not offer nor require students to join as members or purchase class packages. All of the classes are drop in, no need to sign up in advance.

May I purchase a gift certificate for classes?

Yes, gift certificates are available for classes. Visit the shop or email us at info@katonahyoga.com to purchase.

What should I expect if it is my first time to yoga or at Katonah Yoga Center?

We welcome newcomers. Please arrive a few minutes early to meet the teacher and to sign a waiver.

Our classes are set up facing in toward the center of the room to establish a sense of community. This environment creates a platform for one to work on personal skills, while participating within a group. Our Certified Katonah Yoga teachers are experienced to welcome students that are both new to yoga or to Katonah Yoga.

Are there different class levels?

Unless otherwise noted, all of our classes are “all level” classes. Our certified teachers guide students to experience Katonah Yoga at all levels in every class. We find this diversity creates a passionate and nurturing learning environment for beginners and advanced students alike.

Do I need to bring my mat? Is there mat storage?

We have plenty of clean Manduka mats and props at the studio for use during class. Unfortunately, we are not set up to store personal mats.

Do you offer private yoga instruction?

Yes, many of our teachers are available for private instruction. You may speak to an individual teacher or contact Liana, our studio manager, at info@katonahyoga.com to set something up for your specific needs.

What’s the best way to get to Bedford Hills without a car?

Take the train. The studio and shop are a short walk from the Bedford Hills train station. The Metro North Harlem line runs hourly, or more often, from Grand Central to Wassaic.

Are the items in the online shop available to purchase in the Bedford Hills shop?

Yes, all of Nevine Michaan’s products and other curated items are available in our Bedford Hills shop.

Is there a convenient place for snacks or drinks?

Students will often hang out around our communal table after class, enjoying tea, coffee and light snacks right next door to the studio in our Shop.

Do you have guest teachers or special events?

We frequently have certified Katonah Yoga teachers from all over the globe come teach special classes, series, workshops and trainings. You can find the schedule at katonahyoga/programs.
