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!
