Teaching the Therapeutic Private

November 14 -17 2019

With DAGES JUVELIER KEATES Senior Katonah Teacher

A 30 Hour Teacher Training Intensive

KATONAH YOGA® accredited education

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 organising a session to

best serve the needs of different types of students. You will gain hands-on

experience to gain confidence through applied knowledge.

Yoga can be radical and revelatory. Saturate yourself in the development of a

versatile practice that can be translated and augmented through whatever yoga

you already know. Learn how to use props, straps, and adjustments to evolve your

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

- Language: how to articulate Katonah Yoga theory to students

- Working with props: straps, blocks, chairs, poles, sandbags and their substitutes


Every day includes a vigorous asana practice, immersive pranayama, and hands-

on, open format workshops to explicate Katonah Yoga theory.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.

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.
