Katonah Yoga Weekend with Eva Giorgi in Seattle, WA
Oct

Katonah Yoga Weekend with Eva Giorgi in Seattle, WA

Join Bala Yoga and Eva Giorgi for a Katonah Yoga Immersion in the PNW!

To Start- Katonah Yoga is a syncretic approach to yogic and well-being practices yoked within the premise that life is a mystical experience navigated with technique. In this introductory workshop you will learn the framework of the Magic Square, an ancient Chinese grid of numbers traditionally known as the Lo Shu used as an internal compass and organizational tool to place you in the center of your circumstances; from your skin and bones, to the cosmos, using and embodying the imagination, our threading Narrative or “Golden Thread” for insight and joy. 

Followed by-  A class experience. Weave the Narrative through the Asana, moving from FORM to FLUENCY.  Fit and Function within form is the foundation of a Katonah Yoga asana practice. Learn to setup corporal geometries, to fit oneself and to make “fits” within postures that refine organ function and provide conditions for insight.  Mastery of metaphor will guide you through pranayama techniques to whip it up, transform your internal weather through glandular work and move into the realm of fluency using the five Golden Thread Meditations. These meditations are designed to wrap it up, leaving you well-held, well-packaged, woven, embodied. 

come for one or both!

Tuning the Instrument: Teaching the Therapeutic Private With Dages Juvelier Keates
Oct
27
to Oct 29

Tuning the Instrument: Teaching the Therapeutic Private With Dages Juvelier Keates

You are a yoga teacher and practitioner.
You have someone who is interested in private yoga sessions with you. What do you do?
A private yoga session is different from a group practice. In a private, you tune your instrument, in a class, you play for the symphony! This workshop is focused on training teachers to work with privates. Learn Katonah techniques to precisely read and adjust your private students. We will cover a basic structure for sequencing and organizing a session to best serve the needs of different types of students. You will gain hands-on experience to gain confidence through applied knowledge.

YOU WILL LEARN AND EXPERIENCE: 

-  Working with older students

-  Working with injuries and limited mobility

-  Body readings/diagnostics

-  Breakdown of frequently used poses and techniques along with their adjustments/modifications

-  Language: how to open lungs, pump up kidneys, filter livers, modulate temperature, and self-soothe

This training will be small and personal, enabling each participant to get the information that will best support them in empowering others. Specific questions can be emailed to Dages in advance, or feel to bring in your real life examples for mentoring.

lotus.jpg

Dages has been teaching privates for fifteen years and had time to try to help, make mistakes, learn skills, and refine her techniques. Private yoga sessions constitute the great majority of her teaching, and she has worked with an eclectic swath of New Yorkers during her career, from hedge fund managers to homemakers to hockey players.

Beginning in 2002, her studies have earned her accreditations in both the Bihar and Kundalini lineages. Her syncretic teaching style has been profoundly impacted by immersion in studies with her mentor Nevine Michaan, founder of Katonah Yoga. Recent collaborations include a series of workshops with Elena Brower pairing pranayama and aromatherapy, and retreats and teacher trainings with veteran Katonah teacher Abbie Galvin, Sacred Fig founder Anton Brandt, and SKY TING co-founder Chloe Kernaghan in Bali, Dominican Republic, Greece, and Morocco.

COMMUNALLY ADJUSTING THE MAGIC SQUARE // Kat Villain

COMMUNALLY ADJUSTING THE MAGIC SQUARE // Kat Villain

Venice Beach, CA

Venice Beach, CA

This workshop will focus on participating in the bigger picture, one’s community, by using the magic square as a tool to adjust others. Refining the magic square inside of your own body is a way to organize your internal space. After you have an understanding of what is going on inside it becomes a joy to move outside of yourself and participate with the world around you. It is also hard to see yourself and where your blind spots are. With community you have the opportunity to have a vision that wouldn’t have been available to you alone. Allowing someone else move you in a direction you never thought to go you will see something new. By lending a hand and learning how to read the magic square in each other’s bodies we will adjust one another to move communally into a more unified vision. It is to understand ourselves and our fit to the world outside of us.

All workshops are based on the information from KATONAH YOGA®, founded by Nevine Michaan.  This is a Hatha yoga practice refined over forty years, blended with Taoist theory, sacred geometries, pranayama, and meditation.

PERSONALLY TRAVELING THE MAGIC SQUARE // kat villain

Venice Beach, CA

Venice Beach, CA

The magic square is a tool to travel your mind through the body increasingly refining your form in the physical postures and the ethereal imagination. Understanding this esoteric alignment within your body allows you to constantly organize yourself so you are at your best. This alignment is used to travel through the territory of the body’s map, hitting each room in your house, so you can organize your inner world. This repetition allows space for insights, enabling you to refine your form consistently until you are a conduit in which current can move through effortlessly and with ease. Explore this ancient glyph in your own body in order to move closer to cosmic alignment and watch as life unfolds with grace. Kat will guide the magic square through the postures and through the more subtle but impactful pranayama practice. *Nevine Michaan’s map drawn by Susan Fierro
