Yoga is personal housekeeping, a pragmatic, practical form of self-care, which ultimately nourishes collective well-being. This intensive will deepen your understanding of Katonah Yoga’s central metaphors and practices. Your body is your house, your personal and magical abode; you want to know how to have a party and clean it up!
Learn tips and techniques to adjust yourself and your students in order to maximize revelation and minimize common mistakes.
