Substantiate yourself, develop competency, and free up your imagination. From the esoteric ideas of Taosim to the very pragmatic way to hold a right angle, we will move through techniques that articulate the Katonah Yoga theory that you may have heard but have not yet made use of in your teaching or embodied in your practice. Whether you are a teacher seeking theory in order to better mentor your students, a student searching to deepen your practice, a practitioner dealing with an injury, or a new practitioner seeking a way to integrate yoga into your life; our intensive will inform, inspire, and usher you on your path towards becoming a sphere of influence in and out of the yoga room.

 

Abbie Galvin is the owner of The Studio, a NYC based yoga studio, teaching Katonah Yoga. She has been honing this practice for the past 25 years and has a strong student-base from all around the world. Abbie's instruction is informed by her own creative process as a filmmaker and from her exploration of the therapeutic process as a psychoanalyst. She has learned over and over that truly participating in any formal process of self-exploration leads to transformation whether it be physical, psychological or intellectual. Her goal is to engage students of yoga in the dialogue between their conscious and their unconscious selves because it is through that effort that we potentiate ourselves. It is her intention as a teacher to cajole each student in that most rigorous effort to be grounded, grow upwards, and to br grounded, grow upwards, and to participate in the creation of their best self.


Full payment is required to reserve a space in workshops. All workshops are non-refundable. Cancellations made two weeks or more prior to workshop start date will be issued a store credit. No store credit will be given for cancellations made less than two weeks prior to workshop start date.

Foundations of Katonah Yoga: 10 hour with Christy Maskeroni

to Jul 28

Foundations of Katonah Yoga: 10 hour with Christy Maskeroni

  • DALLAS, Alula Collective (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

This training offers an opportunity to dive a little deeper into Katonah Yoga® theory and practice, as it is the framework of many of the Alula Collective classes. We will explore the foundational theories of Katonah Yoga - from the magic square and metaphors to the measure - how the neurological mapping using the magic square with the measure of a pose can assist us in uncovering the unconscious patterns in the body. The ability to map and measure a pose consciously gives the body new information, setting up the conditions a greater state of energy flow and optimizing the functionality of our bodies and mind. All of this will be weaved into the exploration of the Taoist principles of polarity, pattern, and the repetition of that pattern over time.

Through dedication and repetition we will revolve and evolve, shaping our lives into something of a more connected, functional, and joyful state of being. This is perfect for anyone at any level - teacher or student - wanting to explore their own practice in a deeper, more conscious way.

Christy Maskeroni is a Certified Yoga + Katonah Yoga Teacher, Registered Dietitian Nutritionist, and owner of Alula Collective in Dallas, TX. She has been working with various forms of movement and bodies for over 14 years. Christy relocated to Texas after over a decade in NYC where she began studying and practicing Katonah Yoga with Abbie Galvin and Nevine Michaan. She continues to explore this practice and feels incredibly lucky to have discovered this material and continue to explore and share what she has learned with others.
Katonah Yoga® is a syncretic Hatha yoga practice developed by Nevine Michaan 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 into Katonah Yoga practices.

Katonah yoga is organized around 3 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 by revelation through revolutions. www.katonahyoga.com

ADJUSTMENTS: 10 Hour Training with Christy Maskeroni

  • DALLAS, ALULA COLLECTIVE (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS


The right adjustment can give the student an opportunity to see, feel, and understand their own potential in a pose. It allows us to let go of unconscious, habitual patterns and explore a new frame of reference to support ourselves. It gives the brain and body the ability to consciously retrain patterns giving us greater freedom and function.

Being able to provide the proper adjustment in a pose can be transformational for the student. In this training, you will strengthen your ability to approach an adjustment using both the measure of the pose, your voice, your contact, and your own vision so that you might augment the student’s ability to reach their greater potential.

Shoulder Joint Health: Enhancing Strength, Mobility, and Range of Motion Description with Ari Halbert

Shoulder Joint Health: Enhancing Strength, Mobility, and Range of Motion Description with Ari Halbert

  • COLORADO, Steamboat Movement Festival (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Shoulder Joint Health: Enhancing Strength, Mobility, and Range of Motion Description

What:  Movement

When:  Friday, 2-3:30 PM

Where:  TBA

As the joint capable of the largest range of motion within the human body, the shoulder’s unique design offers incredible structural freedom, which proves to be both a boon and a burden. Unlike the other six load-bearing joints of our anatomy, which offer strong structural stability through the way the bones eloquently join and meet one another, the shoulders rely almost entirely on the surrounding connective tissue to keep them together. It is, at least in large part, because of this that shoulder pain is so ubiquitous. The health of the shoulder joint is easily disrupted through poor posture and many of the head-forward activities we constantly engage in. It is for this reason that special attention needs to be paid to proper shoulder function.

With this in mind, this class will review what’s happening “underneath the hood,” so to speak, and apply various exercises to counteract many of the most common dysfunctional movement patterns that almost everyone will develop over time. The exercises will include, but are not at all limited, to traditional yoga asana. Many more are borrowed from gymnastics, calisthenics and corrective exercises used by physical therapists. So be prepared to move in new ways and experience freedom from shoulder tightness, soreness, and restriction.

10 HOUR INTENSIVE TRAINING - BODY READING with Abbie Galvin

10 HOUR INTENSIVE TRAINING - BODY READING with Abbie Galvin

10 HOUR INTENSIVE TRAINING - BODY READING
with Abbie Galvin

Saturday & Sunday, August 17-18th (2-7pm)
Price: $300 ($250 before August 12th)

Learning to read a body via asana work is one of the goals of teaching yoga. Poses are snap shots that show things in the moment. Does the pose fit itself? Does it have stability in the base, capacity in the torso, and a full view. Is it organized on a plumb line, does it have a center and a circumference? Does it conform to a grid. Reading a body, assessing a pose, interpreting where one is heading, is the art of seeing. Seeing patterns such as the repetition of arches in the body on every floor, or how a collar bone is turned will be reflected in the wrist. Poses show propensities of behavior and how personal habits are articulated in the practice.

When we are looking at a yoga pose, we reference the ideal form of it so that we have a template, a map, a criteria to look for; shoulders and hips that make four corners (a frame), legs that substantiate it, and a head with two eyes that see in every direction. Form that is not functional, that is dysfunctional, is not sustainable. Our work is to transform the personal to a formal form that functions formidably.

In this training we will explore:

  • How to read the body through the feet

  • How poses reveal information to us

  • How to read and adjust a pose to make it formal

  • How the personal reveals itself on every floor when you put someone on a grid

  • How to use your vision to become a good diagnostician

Who:

Dages Juvelier Keates:

https://www.dagesjuvelierkeates.com/about/

As a teacher, Dages prizes clarity, compassion and depth of practice. She emphasizes open

transmission of knowledge and draws from a wide and various background in yoga, dance,

herbalism, language arts, and academic theory.

Raised in Jackson Hole, WY, Dages attended Bard College, where she received a BA in Dance.

Undertaking formal yoga studies in 2002, she earned accreditations in both the Bihar and

Kundalini lineages. These models of interiority led her to a study of her own lineage of Judaism,

and yielded time spent absorbed in Jewish study and extended stays in Jerusalem’s Ultra-

Orthodox seminaries. Dages enrolled in graduate school in 2010 to study feminist, queer, and

psychoanalytic theories. She attained her M.A. in interdisciplinary gender and performance

studies from NYU.

Her syncratic 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 trainings

in Bali, Canada, Dominican Republic, France, Germany, Greece, Italy, Panama, Morocco, Spain

and Switzerland. Dages regularly contributes to teacher teacher trainings with The Sacred Fig,

SKY TING, The Studio, and Katonah Yoga Center. She has just released her first book in

collaborating with SKY TING, “Radical Acts of Embodiment: Teaching and Practices of Katonah

Yoga.” Dages resides and writes in Paris and teaches internationally.

Testimonials:

“Dages is a master of both Katonah material and teaching in general. I felt like I received 15

hours of personal therapeutic attention from both Dages and my fellow students - all so eager

learn the material and practice on each other. What a truly magical and enlightening weekend.

More, please!”

“Whether your goal is to improve the experience for your existing clients or take on your very

first one, you will absolutely walk away from this program with tools and confidence to do so!

Having the opportunity to tap into Dages' extensive experience and her passion for sharing all

she knows is invaluable. The set-up of the program was both professional and extremely

productive; from the high quality materials to the vast amount of hands on practice each student

was able to experience.”

"This training exceeded my expectations on so many levels. The wealth of knowledge and

passion that Dages has for this practice is undeniable. This training will expand not only your

teaching, but the lens in which you see the World."

“I highly recommend this training module with Dages. I left feeling empowered and filled with

practical knowledge on how to give a therapeutic private. I was thoroughly impressed with the

structure of the weekend and well Dages time-managed each day. Dages expanded my

imagination of what a "yoga practice" looks like and how everybody and every mind can benefit

from these therapeutic poses and breath work.”

“The Teaching the Therapeutic Private training with Dages was an incredible experience. We

learned practical, applicable tools for working with students one-on-one, and were immersed

into the magic of Katonah yoga theory. The work was profoundly deep and yet playful.

Especially as a vinyasa teacher who primarily teaches group classes, I learned so much and

feel so much better equipped to teach privates. I can't recommend this training enough.”

2017 ⓒ Katonah Yoga Center, Inc., www.katonahyoga.com, Illustrator Susan Fierro.

Students will leave this training full of new information, both embodied and theoretical, for

amplifying their practice and teaching others. Katonah Yoga concepts easily translate and

augment other styles of yoga practice. We hope that participants will be inspired to overlay our

syncretic material with the lineage they already have mastered. This training is intended to

invigorate and stimulate one's teacherly creativity, as well as give people an experience of a

bold, dynamic body of theory.

  • SOUTH OF FRANCE, Lux Yoga (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS


LUXYOGA is all about integration; bringing people and practices together for an experience of great pieces that combine to exceed the sum of their parts – and your expectations.

Our September 3-9 retreat will be a long-awaited collaboration between Benjamin Sears, LUXYOGA founder (“one of 15 teachers to study with now” – Yoga Journal 2017) and Brian Nygard, one of a few teachers selected to facilitate Katonah Yoga trainings, and a respected mentor in the New York Yoga community with a diverse resume that spans Vipassana meditation, Hot and Vinyasa Yoga, Wim Hoff Breath-work, and a career as a professional musician. 

These two teachers and friends share a belief in a fine balance between consistency and variation in practice. Teaching what works from different disciplines in a cohesive and connected way empowers students to think for themselves and best express their individual potential. On this retreat, you will improve your practice and awareness by repeating concepts in different applications. By exploring a curated set of movement and stillness variations while centered on fundamentals, you become radiant; up for any challenge, happy in your body, and self-reliant! 

This retreat is open to all levels and ages and counts as 20 Hours of Continuing Education Credit for Yoga Teachers. We have hosted guests from age 15 to 81. All are welcome here.

LUXYOGA TESTIMONIALS

“I have taken yoga retreats all over the world and I must say that LUXYOGA is my absolute favorite retreat to date. Not only are Ben and Craig extraordinarily gifted instructors but they are also kind and funny. Every session offered an opportunity to deepen my practice both physically and spiritually. The beauty of the Villa will leave you speechless with its panoramic view and open air dining room.  The food alone is worth coming to Lux. and I must say that I am grateful for all the calorie burning yoga offered during our stay because it allowed me to enjoy each sumptuous meal with delight and gusto! The Villa has a very special guardian (Concierge) named Dan who will ensure that every moment of your stay is both comfortable and luxurious. The entire team at Lux will make you feel at home and like family. I look forward to many more retreats at Lux!”

Alejandra Arguindegui

“As a committed hot yoga practitioner, I found the combination of classes very useful for my hot yoga practice.  Not only did the Sacred Geometry help me realize what areas of my body I am targeting in each posture and gave me some tools to achieve better alignment, it helped me think of the postures and entire practice in a more enlightened way.  My yoga practice has improved dramatically as a result. In fact in my third class back I did full standing head to knee on both sides, something I had never done before (even though I am attempting to become less outcome focused). So in taking on board what I learnt from Sacred Geometry and not trying so hard I have managed to see and feel improvement in all aspects of my yoga practice. Thanks Ben and Tatiana for the knowledge you shared and the care and commitment to teaching you showed us.”

Sharon Levine

Have loved visiting LUXYOGA for many years.  Have been mostly for Bikram weeks but also two vinyasa yoga weeks.  Have also spent both the Christmas and New Year's week at the villa.  Always look forward to meeting the other guests, enjoying delicious food, and the company of Ben & staff.  Its a great week of reflection, real work on my yoga and myself, and I gratefully unplug from my crazy life to recharge and refocus on what is important.  Its unquestionably one of the best things I do for myself and I highly recommend the LUXYOGA experience regardless of your level of yoga fitness.

“Katonah Yoga is not a practice, you can’t just do Katonah Yoga, you use it as a method in Yoga. That's why when people come to me and say they want to teach Katonah Yoga, you have to have something else, they have to do Ashtanga, they have to do Iyengar, they have to do something else because you are only original when you know something else” ~ Nevine Michaan
.

As Always EVERYONE IS WELCOME !

Join us and experience Nevine's Magic through me, the ongoing wholistic assimilation/embodiment of her material over two decades, in myself and woven into the organic living web of my life.

You will be valued, respected and held high. My aim as I teach this material, is to encourage and empower all of you to remember who you are, to own where you are already an authority, to find your own voice, cadence and by your own design/in your own time, to consciously select elements to weave, teach, live through your daily lives, work and traditions, You can't teach nor live it all. Time is revelatory and it will ripen you and the work in and through you. I believe You deserve a life and teaching that are unified, that extend from You, as its center, sovereign of your domain, level/in alignment with your own natural response, not someone else's. From my experience, this produces great Joy, fulfillment and freedom and a sustainable environment that becomes the fertile ground from which your own continued emergence and wholistic development can grow and flourish.

When you attend a training, even a class, from a seasoned Katonah Yoga instructor, you receive a synthesis of their heritage, experience, culture, previous studies, tradition, achievements, their rhythm, use of language; their very nature, teaching through the blueprint of the Katonah Yoga Material. In essence, we are composing the experience while weaving in components of our choice. The freedom and creativity that Nevine has encouraged in this is quite profound and unique, if you use it. There is great purpose in this methodology. This is why she requests you experience us all. These women, myself included, are not interested in homogenizing themselves, they are invested in fully Being themselves while teaching this work. They are each an individual product of it. We do in fact all teach and use the material differently and we are distinct, primarily women, doing so, though many men are certainly coming on board now and this is a Welcome Shift. How and what we choose to teach is by our own design, all of this is what makes us Unique.  This is your opportunity in the participation of the system that Nevine has spent her life meticulously selecting and organizing. The sum total of all these parts is what makes her and the work she continues to evolve, an ever emergent Whole, utterly Original.

WHAT WE WILL COVER: Each day will open with a communal class, guided meditation and pranayama.

Below are some of the signature elements we will delve into pragmatically, technically and esoterically threaded with my own insight. Some of these are specific choices for Inlet, others are some of the aspects of the Katonah Yoga material that are an integral part of my life.

POLARITY MEDIATED BY TRINITY: This is Everything in Space and then in Time and a substantial teaching in the Katonah material, Including a simple potent revelatory method of using the Triad as a practice in your daily rounds.

READING THE BODY: The fine art of RePositioning. The pragmatic technicality, imaginative and graceful means of reading someone's body in the present and providing them with the tools to use what you've found in their practice and daily lives.

KATONAH INFORMED VINYASA On Weaving language throughout this tradition with creative potent pauses as brief educational opportunities. I began teaching Nevine’s work by leading Ashtanga slow motion, threaded with this material.

ADJUSTMENTS: A select number of consensual, discerning, conscious, creative adjustments with much collaboration and supportive dialog.

PRANAYAMA: Our Signature Pranayama, deconstructed and additionally taught at a learning cadence so you can own it.

THE MAGIC SQUARE: Cohesive elaboration and insights on the Magic Square, a new method I’ve discovered to embody it, which becomes a great tool for teaching it and some of what each position number, room contains, the grid and numbers are set, no ambiguity and its overall evolutionary current/content is living, organic and ever emergent.

WHOLISTIC PRIVATE INSTRUCTION: We Begin with you, into the Katonah Yoga Blueprint of Reading a Body, where it goes from here depends on who you are, who you are working with, your previous experience, current skill set and your imagination. I have been working primarily one on one with the Katonah Material for 21 years.

TEACHING WITHOUT PHYSICAL CONTACT: You may choose to be a teacher who doesn't have communal adjustments during your classes or vary it. It's up to you. Learning to use your voice and language to guide a room or individual thoroughly through a pose, with little or no physical contact is potent and provides a unique own age for your students.

PRACTICING IN SOLITUDE: This provides the fundamental playground for better knowing/becoming of ones self, more evenly developed freely functional. Its the door to self-intimacy, care, kindness, safety, love, perhaps tending with a lighter hand, a softer landing and is always the sacred space for the inevitable work when things fall apart. This is where you remember, reorder, reclaim, where you restore, replenish, refine. Its where the therapeutic work of restoration and longevity occur. It’s where you self manage/organize, where you find You at the center and grow/strengthen/ripen in the vortex of time. Additionally, a wealth of opportunity to simply figure things out, reevaluate, work on what you've lost, develop what you’ve never had. Your solo practice is yours and is developed by your design. It evolves as you, the seasons, your life and your needs change.

MEDITATION: I began sitting as a young child. Over the years, it became more formal moving through the lens of Zen, Tao, Chogyam Trungpa, Nature, Ken Wilber/Integral Theory, Alan Watts, Egyptian Mysticism, Hermetic Philosophy, Insight, Course in Miracles and on. Over the last 20, I have been weaving Nevine's material in, especially in most recent years with the advent of her maps and evolutions.  We will do a guided meditation daily.

NUMBER/GEOMETRY: The One The Many. The sequential structure of everything.

GREAT NATURE: The absolute display, the patterned blueprint for living in harmony/balance/overall well being with the Natural World therefore yourself. You are a micro of the macro. Opens the way for play of UNIVERSAL/PERSONAL

YOU NOW IN SPACE AND TIME: Reflections/Revelations Technicality on the Explicit/Implicit On the Line in the Round 1st 2nd 3rd, an eventual Braid of One Taste. 4th Nature YOU

THE GOLDEN THREAD: Embodying the Magic Square with your narrative thread, imagination and cosmic material; a Continuum of you YOUR NARRATIVE, in a life, a day, a moment, In reflection and Revealing and some of the other mapped meditations, evolutions.

ANATOMY OF A CLASS A Katonah communal experience and much of what's possible there. We will work with this, as we practice each day. It lies in your hands as to how to create, govern, direct and structure this.

TAO: The nature of things. Pragmatic, Graceful, Lucid Instruction on the Art Of Living

WHEN THINGS FALL APART in your life, in a classroom, in a private, In the moment.

ALL OF THIS will be woven with Hermetic Philosophy, Metaphor and Why, Ken Wilbur’s Integral Theory as in alignment with Katonah Yoga, Asana as Origami: Paper 2D The body 3D, Tensegrity (tension and integrity) Super Sensibility, WuWei and Music. “Without music, life would be a mistake” Friedrich Nietzsche

Each day there will be space and time for your questions !

For those traveling from the around the US or Abroad We have recommended accommodations for local hotels, Air B and B's, including group lodging. PLEASE NOTE: Manasquan is a shore town, Rates will greatly decrease after the summer season.

Substantiate yourself, develop competency, and free up your imagination.

From the esoteric ideas of Taosim to the very pragmatic way to hold a right angle, we will move through techniques that articulate the Katonah Yoga theory that you may have heard but have not yet made use of in your teaching or embodied in your practice.

In this training we will cover in depth all aspects of the Katonah Yoga method including hands on adjustments, restorative, prop work, teaching privates, home practice, body reading, magic square and pranayama.

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.

About Abbie Galvin
Abbie Galvin is the owner of The Studio, a NYC based yoga studio, teaching Katonah Yoga. She has been honing this practice for the past 25 years and has a strong student-base from all around the world. Abbie's instruction is informed by her own creative process as a filmmaker and from her exploration of the therapeutic process as a psychoanalyst. She has learned over and over that truly participating in any formal process of self-exploration leads to transformation whether it be physical, psychological or intellectual. Her goal is to engage students of yoga in the dialogue between their conscious and their unconscious selves because it is through that effort that we potentiate ourselves. It is her intention as a teacher to cajole each student in that most rigorous effort to be grounded, to grow upwards, and to participate in the creation of their best self.

10 HOUR INTENSIVE TRAINING - CHAIRS
with Mary Dana Abbott & Linsey Boisvert

Saturday & Sunday, July 20-21st (2-7pm)
Price: $300 ($250 before July 15th)

A real game in yoga (and in life) is to learn how to make effortless efforts. The trick of this game is figuring out just the right amount of effort to put into our work, because with too little we become idle and with too much, we can experience burn-out. When we use props in our yoga practice, we are supported by scaffolding, allowing our efforts to be attuned towards the real interior work: organizing the space of the body well, so that time is on our side and we get to our destination without breaking down. Do not mistake this as physically limiting or particularly restful. When you’re doing real restoration work, it’s transformative, you’ll need support and tools to shift your perspective and change your frame of reference. 

There are few tools that are as versatile and useful as a chair. It as an objective partner than can be utilized in many ways to lift and support us, while giving us different angles to play with, receive and perceive information from.  When we see things from different perspectives and angles, we begin to realize that our ways of habitually doing and thinking are one small piece of our bigger picture. 

In this training we will look at the different ways we can use chairs: in a home and/or restorative practice, as well as in a group setting. We will explore its application in warrior poses, inversions, restorative, pranayama and more. Come explore this magical tool of perspective and support and learn new recipes to re-imagine and re-invigorate your practice.

The Magic of Yoga and Sacred Geometry with Lisa Dunn

The Magic of Yoga and Sacred Geometry ‘Yoga is a process of replacing old patterns, with new and more appropriate patterns’ Sri T Krishnamacharya

In this Katonah Yoga inspired workshop you will explore using techniques of geometric measure to infuse your practice with dimension, energy, and refinement. These techniques offer us a map with which to navigate a practice rather than overly relying on feelings or sensations. If a pose is measured well, if the geometry is correct, the body is supported by its own structure rather than relying on muscle. By reforming our body’s unconscious habits and introducing more informed and efficient patterns, yoga becomes origami for the body. In this way this practice sets up conditions for greater self-knowledge and a more expansive vision, which leads to personal change. Most of us want change when we start a yoga practice. For some it’s solely about physics and learning techniques to get a better understanding of the forms. For others it’s the eye opening, bringing together of body, mind and spirit to realise the potency of yoga.

You will learn techniques to mediate the moment, understand how to organise and orient yourself in time and space, discover how nature reveals its intelligence through pattern and how our bodies are no different. And that we practice yoga for information that is both new and that will take us somewhere - knowing the destination is always joy.

10 HOUR INTENSIVE TRAINING - ADJUSTMENTS
with Danielle Rosati

Saturday & Sunday, June 22-23rd (2-7pm)
Price: $300 ($250 before June 17th)

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.

Developing your own vision is the key to learning how to adjust well. 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 in order to open a portal of experience impossible on one's own.

We will work pragmatically as well as theoretically, moving through asanas in order to discover how best to approach an adjustment, move a body, affect someone's practice and change a mind. Come fine tune your capacity as an adjuster, develop your relationship to touch and enhance your ability to see more dimensionally in order to enrich another person's vision.

“Katonah Yoga is not a practice, you can’t just do Katonah Yoga, you use it as a method in Yoga. That's why when people come to me and say they want to teach Katonah Yoga, you have to have something else, they have to do Ashtanga, they have to do Iyengar, they have to do something else, because you are only original when you know something else”.

~ Nevine Michaan

Dear new and In the making Katonah Yoga teachers, all students and my peers

Join us and experience Nevine's Magic the through me, the literal embodiment of her vast material over two decades, in myself and at one with a living system in my life and where I've chosen to land in my contribution to the developing landscape of Katonah Yoga and its future; it's up and coming teachers. This training will be indicative of this choice and the Public Reveal of My Katonah Yoga Advanced Mentorship Program.

You will be valued, respected and held high. I have been quietly mentoring teachers that are either in the process of their Katonah Certifications or complete and in some cases, their communities for quite some time now.  Encouraging and empowering them to remember who they are, to own where they are already an authority, to find their own voice, cadence and by their own design, to consciously select elements to weave and teach through their ongoing lives and traditions, you can't teach it all. Time is revelatory and it will ripen you and the work in and through you. From where I stand, You deserve a life and teaching that are unified, that extend from You, as its center, sovereign of your domain, level/in alignment with your own natural response, not someone else's. From my experience, this produces great Joy, fulfillment and freedom and a sustainable environment that becomes the fertile ground from which your own continued emergence and wholistic development can grow and flourish.

When you attend a training, even a class, from a seasoned Katonah Yoga instructor you receive a synthesis of their heritage, experience, culture, previous studies, tradition, achievements, their rhythm, use of language; their very nature, teaching through the blueprint of the Katonah Yoga Material. In essence, we are composing the experience while weaving in components of our choice. This is personal and not, though, You are there and conducting, your presence speaks volumes. The freedom and creativity that Nevine has afforded in this is quite profound and unique. This is why she requests you experience us all. These women, myself included, are not interested in homogenizing themselves, they are invested in fully Being themselves while teaching this work. They are each an individual product of it. We do in fact all teach and use the material differently and we are distinct, primarily women, doing so, though many men are certainly coming on board now. How and what we choose to teach is by our own design, all of this is what makes us Unique.  This is your extraordinary opportunity in the privileged participation of the system that Nevine has spent her life meticulously selecting and organizing. The sum total of all these parts is what makes her and the work she continues to evolve, an ever emergent Whole, utterly Original.

Bless You with the Light of a Thousand Suns Nevine Michaan.

Love,

Ivy Ray

WHAT WE WILL COVER: Below are some of the signature elements we will delve into pragmatically, technically and esoterically threaded with my own insight. Many of these are by request from the two potent teachers, Michelle and Jen, who are sponsoring and participating in this training. The others are some of the aspects of the Katonah Yoga material that are an Integral part of my living web.

ADJUSTMENTS: A select number of consensual, discerning, conscious adjustments and much supportive dialog

PRANAYAMA: Our Signature Pranayama, deconstructed and additionally taught at a learning cadence so you can own it.

NUMBER/GEOMETRY: The One The Many. The sequential structure of everything, the ladder that leads to higher intelligence

MEDITATION: I began sitting as a young child. Over the years, it became more formal moving through the lens of Zen, Tao, Chogyam Trumpa, Nature, Integral Theory, Alan Watts, Vipassana, Egyptian Mysticism, Hermetic Philosophy, Insight, Course in Miracles and on. Over the last 20, I have been weaving Nevines material in, especially in most recent years with our maps and evolutions.  We will do a guided meditation daily.

KATONAH INFORMED VINYASA On Weaving language throughout this tradition, potent pauses and sneaky tricks. I began teaching w Nevine in my beginnings, by leading Ashtanga slow motion, threaded with this material.

PRACTICING IN SOLITUDE: The power and vast potential of practicing on your own, a primary component of Katonah Yoga: Restorative and Longevity work and whatever else you need to work on, additionally it is an essential opportunity for self-tending, feeding, caring, intimacy. You cannot give what you do not own for yourself. Including the structuring of this work for your students.

GREAT NATURE: The absolute display, a patterned blueprint for living in harmony/overall well being and the key to understanding the whole. You are a micro of the macro

TEACHING WITHOUT PHYSICAL CONTACT: You may choose to be a teacher who doesn't have communal adjustments during your classes or vary it. It's up to you. Learning to use your voice and language to guide a room or individual thoroughly through a pose, with little or no physical contact is potent and provides a unique own age for your students.

YOU NOW IN SPACE AND TIME: Reflections/Revelations Technicality on the Explicit/Implicit On the Line in the Round 1st 2nd 3rd Nature into an eventual Braid of One Taste and Nevines brilliance on Time.

READING THE BODY: The fine art of RePositioning, the pragmatic technicality, imaginative and graceful means of reading someone's body

THE MAGIC SQUARE: Cohesive elaboration and insights on the Magic Square, a new method to practice with it, which becomes a great tool for teaching and some of what each position contains, the grid and numbers are set and its overall evolutionary current/content is living and ever emergent.

THE GOLDEN THREAD: Embodying the Magic Square with your narrative thread, imagination and cosmic material and perhaps some of the other mapped meditations, evolutions.

ANATOMY OF A CLASS A Katonah communal experience and much of what's possible there. We will work with this, as we practice. It lies in your hands as to how to govern, direct and structure this.

WHOLISTIC PRIVATE INSTRUCTION: We Begin with you, into our classic Blueprint, where it goes from there depends on who you are working with, your previous and current skillset and your imagination.

TAO: The nature of things. Pragmatic, Graceful, Lucid Instruction on the Art Of Living

POLARITY MEDIATED BY TRINITY: Much on this. Including a simple method to use the Triad in your daily life and teaching

WHEN THINGS FALL APART in your life, in a classroom, in a private, In the moment.

ALL OF THIS will be woven with and in some cases separate components on Hermetic Philosophy, Integral theory as in alignment with Katonah Yoga, Asana as Origami, tensegrity, super sensibility and Music. “Without music, life would be a mistake” Friedrich Nietzsche A

SWEET BLUEPRINT OF OUR TIME

4 hour am session - Opening dialog, ritual or meditation. Breakdown of the day Communal practice, pranayama, mapped meditations and select theoretical material

3 hour free time to replenish/spend time in nature: recalibrate, integrate, reflect/enjoy, partner up to work with others

WOOM SOUND EXPRIENCE with Elian Zach-Shemesh

WHAT TO EXPECT

An immersive sonic journey inward that invites you to explore non-ordinary states of consciousness in a safe and supportive setting.

The journey includes 5 chapters:

Talk. About the therapeutic properties of sound and how to use it as a meditative tool.
Vocal Meditation. Using our own voices, we will explore the delicate balance between contributing to the collective and personal receptivity.
Breathwork. Inspired by Stanislav Grof’s Holotropic technique, we will practice a powerful form breath that enables to disconnect from the “monkey mind” and reach heightened states of awareness and a deeper state of meditation.
Sound. a variety of overtone-emitting instruments will be played, including gongs, Himalayan singing bowls, tuning forks, bells, and chimes.
Connecting. An opportunity to share musings, thoughts, feelings and poetics about our individual experiences.

Elian received her formal training under the guidance of world-renowned sound researcher, practitioner and ethnomusicologist, Alexandre Tannous. Together with her partner, David, she has co-founded WOOM CENTER, New York's first of its kind multi-sensory yoga and meditation studio, based primarily on the therapeutic and psychedelic properties of sound vibration. David and Elian facilitate at WOOM weekly and host practitioners from all over the country and the world. Elian and David have been greatly inspired by Nevine and the magical teachings of Katonah Yoga. Elian is honored and grateful to share this work with the community in such a meaningful way.

HOW TO PREPARE


Set an intention - between now and then, set aside some time for some intuitive writing and see if anything interesting comes up that you'd like to further explore. If you're currently working on anything, you are welcome to simply write a clear intention, in free-form or bullet points. Please bring your written intentions on a piece of paper with you. 

Prepare your vessel - to increase your sensitivity and openness we would highly recommend refraining from alcohol intake and other substances for about a week before the ceremony. Please, come on a fairly empty stomach.

Please arrive at least 15 minutes early to settle in, as we plan to begin right on time.

WHAT TO BRING

Warm and comfortable clothing (layers are the best, as change of body temperature may occur), eye mask or a scarf to cover your eyes (very important!), a pillow and blankets to make the journey extra comfy, a refillable water bottle, a journal and a pen.

Kundalini Basics with Hari Sangat Kaur (Carrie Kane)

Kundalini Basics with Hari Sangat Kaur (Carrie Kane)

Kundalini Yoga is The Yoga of Awareness. It is an ancient technology aimed at raising your consciousness.  Kundalini cultivates inner and outer awareness, elevates the spirit, and connects you to the Truth within You.

Hari Sangat will lead you through a basic Kundalini class which includes some chanting, some exercise, some meditation and a relaxing gong bath as you lie in shavasana.

She will explain the basic principles,  how kundalini works primarily on the nervous and glandular systems,  how meditation can be done easily with certain applied techniques.

Join us in this powerful practice to enhance mental clarity and give you an experience of your highest consciousness.

“In your life there will be tons of obstacles, tons of objections, tons of fears, tons of questions.

Everything out there is to shake your faith. If you rise above it, that is because your Kundalini has risen.”  Yogi Bhajan

Hari Sangat (Carrie Kane) is a former student of Nevine and Katonah Yoga. She studied with Nevine for 9 years before finding her calling in Kundalini. She owns and operates Golden Prana in Katonah. “ I am so grateful to Nevine and Katonah Yoga for imparting the knowledge,inspiration and wisdom that  has been a key building block in my spiritual growth.”

Katonah Yoga Workshop Series: With Eva Giorgi- Part 2, Traveling Territory

Traveling Territory

Each class-time experience will weave Katonah Yoga’s synthesis of myth, math, metaphor and Chinese Medicine through the pragmatic, palpable fits of the body in Asana to the subtle arts of holding space, articulating and adjusting while conducting a communal class.

Our bodies are mountains and lakes, plains, peaks, shoreline and sea. All the while, mossy microbes multiply in our ancestral rivers bridged by ever-evolving biomes. Our weather is breath, cellular resonances, alchemical reaction. Our senses cross-pollinated with imagination is the instinctual animal of us intersecting with our individuating human will; An internal crossroads, where it all happens. It is all you!

Whether you want to find your way out or discover a way in, looking at a map is a pretty good place to start.

The Magic Square, a central framework to Katonah Yoga theory and Practice, is our map!

In this workshop we will lay out The Magic Square like a road atlas before a big trip.

To cover the basic lay of the land, we'll identify each number as if it is a region with its own character and quality. Inservice of our own corporeal, emotional and spiritual landscapes our dialogue will extend to: organic anatomy of Chinese medicine, holistic principles, Taoist ideas , & The Archetype of Numbers

Then, we will use a series of physical techniques to travel the territory!

We’ll kick, stroke, breathe, pedal, pump, coast, dance, and make righteous turns through our neurological highways, foot trails, sidewalks, climbs, dips and swims.

Expect a full pranayama practice, Explorative restorative set-ups, Traveling through postures & Aromatherapy

Also sign up for Part 1 of the series- Saturday 6/8: 2-5pm: Practice, practice, practice! Play!

75 HOUR YOGA TEACHER TRAINING IN PANTELLERIA with Anton & Dages

to Jun 16

75 HOUR YOGA TEACHER TRAINING IN PANTELLERIA with Anton & Dages

The Sacred Fig Advanced Yoga Teacher Trainings are intensive, modular program designed to elevate + inform the next generation of leaders in the yoga community. Our advanced 300 hour programming is divided into 75 hour modules. Piece together any four modules, on your schedule, anywhere around the world, for the full 300 hour program. Each 75 hour module has a unique focus, led by experts in their respective fields.

This 75 hour, 8 day module dives deep into Katonah Yoga techniques. Katonah Yoga is a syncretic Hatha yoga practice developed by Nevine Michaan 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.

We firmly believe that the strongest attribute any yoga teacher possesses is themselves. Learning refined alignment + biomechanics is a given on our trainings, but we don’t stop there – be prepared to explore things like personal development, confidence, and speech. Our 300 hour programs are registered with The Yoga Alliance, but they’re so much more than that. In fact, our advanced trainings are some of the most comprehensive available today. Our graduates now teach at studios, retreats & trainings around the globe. The Sacred Fig Yoga Teacher Trainings produce confident, knowledgeable, articulate, and empowered yoga teachers. Period.

At the core of the The Sacred Fig philosophy is connection + community. Not only do our thoughts affect us in tangible ways, but we also have the extraordinary capacity to affect those around us, and the environment we live in. And so as yoga practitioners and teachers, we strive for the extraordinary, so that we may serve as a beacon of possibility for those around us. We see the divine in everything around us, but we also know that it lies within us. So before trying to shape & control everything outside of us, we first look deep within, and do the work ourselves.

We don’t provide answers. (and we’re wary of any teacher or school who claims that they do) Instead, we welcome & provide different viewpoints, we stir lively discourse. We set the circumstances to challenge notions about what yoga is, what it might feel like or look like, and why we practice. We create an accelerated learning environment, where trainees gain the confidence to discover their own ‘truths’ about yoga, about their bodies and their practice. There’s no memorization, no mimicry, and no script. From this place, trainees find their authentic voice… sharing their knowledge & their practice naturally. Join Us.

The Wholistic Nature of Great Nature, The Katonah Yoga Material and You:  In Space and Time with Senior Instructor Ivy Ray

to Jun 9

The Wholistic Nature of Great Nature, The Katonah Yoga Material and You:  In Space and Time with Senior Instructor Ivy Ray

  • VERMONT, Laughing River Yoga  (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

June 8, 12-3 pm
June 9, 9 am-12 pm

Each Attendee will receive Nevines most recent Katonah Yoga Planner, complete with every map/geographical chart and supportive theoretical material to date in the Katonah Yoga Material.

Everything provides Insight. In the communal/the world, On the Line, the insight is You in relation to things, others, systems. You are continually shown how well you intersect. How you communicate, cooperate, collaborate, how quickly you can shift gears, change course, change mind, navigate territory, be timely. It’s the daily test drive and calls upon you to use your technique and skillfully manage space, time, circumstances, others and always your self. Every road leads to You and there’s always a wild card. We will work with the specific techniques associated with this as form determines function and good fit-ups function.

Practicing in Solitude takes place In Time, In the Round and the insight is you in relation to you. It provides the fundamental playground for better knowing and becoming of ones’ self, more evenly developed and freely functional. It’s the door to self-intimacy, care, kindness, safety, love, tending with a lighter hand, a softer landing.  It is always the sacred space for the inevitable work when things fall apart. This is where you remember, reorder, reclaim, where you restore, replenish, refine. It’s where the therapeutic work of restoration and longevity primarily occur. It’s where you self manage, organize, where you find You at the center and grow/strengthen/ripen in the vortex of time. It provides a wealth of opportunity to simply figure things out, reevaluate, work on what you’ve lost, and develop what you’ve never had. At least its this and more for me.

Practicing in solitude is the ongoing birthplace of you and your emergence. Your Insight is the growing ground of your unique contribution as a teacher or whatever you do. Your solo practice is yours and is developed by your design. It evolves as you, the seasons, your life and your needs change.

Day 1: On The Line in SPACE

We will work with Explicit, your 2nd Nature, you in Space, on the line. Space is fixed, it is linear and provides reflection. We will work with the Yang of you, the solar, the skill set side, the tough love side, Your Mobility, ability, agility and refer to the ongoing training of your beautiful mind in this. These are the tools and techniques that you use in your life and into the world on a daily basis. We will orient and organize via the Magic Square with a good solid pragmatic and esoteric breakdown of this Magical Grid, our primary map and its ever-evolving living content and uses.

Day 2: In the Round TIME

We will work with your 1st Nature, with the Yin of you, the lunar, In Time, in the Round, Time is the vortex of the present, it is spherical. Your Stability, Wisdom/Patience side, your inherent potential, the hand you were dealt, your heart side, your ancestry, your ever emergent self, into the Restoration and Longevity work and subtle practices of breath, mapped meditations, and evolutions.

All Into 3rd Nature. The Implicit. Your soul imbued with Cosmic Material 

First Triads, then circle it all up, Integration, in movement and circumambulate our selves in an evolutionary meditation, weaving 1st, 2nd and 3rd Nature unified, as a braid, One Taste, As All of You, thrice threaded into A singular Expression.

And at the end, we will open the floor to your questions!

All hours with Ivy go toward your Katonah Yoga Certification.

Your body is where EVERYTHING lives, happens + thrives. Grow/build a more safe, sane, functional, JOYFUL you, a viable, worthy container for all of what you are, duly prepared for what life may hand you and in an aim of becoming more evenly developed, freely functional, powerful, virtuous, women, men, leaders, teachers, parents, lovers, friends. ~ Ivy Ray

Form, Function, & Flow: Integrating Katonah Yoga & Vinyasa with Mary Dana


Form, Function, & Flow: Integrating Katonah Yoga & Vinyasa

The literal translation of Vinyasa means to place in a special way. We interpret this to mean that the order of forms, or asanas, function in a way that flows. This placement is not arbitrary, and true flow can occur when things fit together and function well. Katonah Yoga gives us the tools and techniques to explore the forms in an inFORMative way that offer insights into both the objective pattern of nature and the subjective pattern of our personal narrative.

In this workshop, we will explore how the geometric integrity and theory of Katonah yoga functions to create flow in a well-adjusted and informed Vinyasa experience. Open to both teachers who wish to incorporate more of the material in their classes and any student who is curious to explore these connections more.

Open to teachers and curious students familiar with any lineage or background.

Learn about the Katonah Yoga principals: the magic square, wraps for rapture, the body as the magical abode, origami for bodies, reflections and revolutions.

This course can be taken for the first time, or as a continuing education of the Katonah Yoga certification program: www.katonahyoga.com/teach.

Katonah Yoga is a unique emergent synthesis of Absolutes woven into pragmatic techniques and contributory theoretical material. From Great nature to an ongoing conscious exploration of Personal nature, from the pragmatic mysticism of TAO, patterned intelligence and medicine of the seasons to skillful self-management/manipulation of You in Space and Time, all through the body, breath and imagination. Individual/Communal Practice for Personal/Universal Well-Being.

Join us as we orient and organize, via Nevine Michaan’s Territorial Wisdom; notably the Magic Square, work with number, geometry, measure, form, fit, function, metaphor and magic distilling this and more into pragmatic tools and techniques which bring it all into You, where it is designed to be Worn, Used, Lived, and in time Embodied. All in an aim of becoming more Evenly Developed/Freely Functional, Effective, mediated Virtuous women, men, teachers, lovers, parents, friends…This Wholistic all-inclusive System is for EveryOne and is to be woven into your ongoing life/current tradition.
