“I loved Ellens’ comfort in teaching workshop. The workshop gave me much more confidence in my teaching and a map for how to design and present my class.” 

Making the transition from being certified and understanding Katonah Yoga techniques conceptually and physically -- to teaching it -- is a big step.  This Teaching Technique class is a place to hone your skills as a teacher, find your voice, work on designing and creating a class, and find the way you teach best.  

  • How do you demonstrate and lead a class?  

  • How do you correct and keep the class going?  

  • How do you use words to cue the class? 

  • Do you memorize what you want to do - or are you a go with the flow type of teacher? 

  • Do you project your voice well? 

  • Are your instructions clear? 

  • How can you get off your mat to help give adjustments and insights to the students while still keeping the class moving? 

In our small group you will find a safe environment in which you can practice finding your teaching voice, practice designing and leading sequences, and learn how to lead the class in a thoughtful manner.  This class will be filled with positive and constructive feedback as we take time for each participant to teach in many small sequences. 

Please come prepared with a 1 - 2 min sequence to teach to the group.

FORM, FUNCTION & FLOW: Weaving  Katonah Yoga and Vinyasa with Mary Dana
Feb
24
to Mar 3

FORM, FUNCTION & FLOW: Weaving Katonah Yoga and Vinyasa with Mary Dana

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 two part 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.

TUNING THE INSTRUMENT: Teaching the Therapeutic Private with Dages Keates–10 hour Intensive
Nov
3
to Nov 4

TUNING THE INSTRUMENT: Teaching the Therapeutic Private with Dages Keates–10 hour Intensive

Manual Included

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.

We will cover:

  • Working with injuries, older students and those with limited mobility

  • Body readings/diagnostics

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

  • Language: how to articulate Katonah Yoga theory to students

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.

Prerequisite:

As this training will cover Katonah Yoga material, taking some Katonah Yoga classes is suggested.

About Dages:

Dages has been teaching privates for sixteen 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 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 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.

Testimonials from Past Participants:

“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!”

“Dages is the best!! This course really helped me gain the confidence I was looking for to read and adjust my students one in one.”

“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 every body 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.”

INTRO TO CALISTHENICS: Developing Strength and Control through Body-Weight Movements with Noah Julian

INTRO TO CALISTHENICS: Developing Strength and Control through Body-Weight Movements with Noah Julian

The essence of body-weight training and the ultimate way for anyone to build strength, flexibility and bodily awareness. This type of training has obvious transferable benefit and can be a perfect complement to any physical endeavour one may wish to pursue.

We will focus on pushing and pulling for the upper body while also addressing the many ways one can develop very strong legs by introducing squatting, sprinting and jumping. In the spirit of calisthenics we will use whatever tools are available to us in the environment (whether that be walls, bars, poles, gymnastics rings or bodies. Be prepared to interact with the environment around you and the other practitioners within it.

Noah Julian’s teaching has its roots in yoga but is not bound by tradition. Sometimes fluid, always informative. We will look at the geometric alignment of the body and the possibilities that arise in one’s movement by correcting body mechanics and introducing old and new movement patterns. 

About Noah

Noah’s early life was informed by intense study of music and the pursuit of a career as a concert violinist. Following a diagnosis of rheumatoid arthritis Noah turned his attention toward meditation, breath-work, diet, and numerous movement modalities (including: Yoga-Asana, Acrobatics, Gymnastics, martial arts, dance, and WeightLifting). Noah has worked closely with yoga teachers of various styles (Katonah, Prana Flow, Vinyasa, Iyengar, Anusara, Ashtanga, Acro-Yoga), spanning two decades.  Using his experience with music pedagogy and the trials of recovering from a debilitating disease he brings personal tools as well as collected knowledge of moving through physical and mental challenges.

AN INTRODUCTION TO TAOIST HEALING ARTS: Qi Gong & Acupressure Massage with Ari Halbert

Join acupuncturist and Katonah Yoga Teacher Ari Halbert for an introduction to the Taoist practice of Qi Gong and acupressure massage based on the meridian system of Chinese Medicine.

Qi Gong exercises cultivate and distribute Energy/Qi throughout the body and are a powerful tool that have been used for thousands of years to promote health and longevity.  The immediate effects are an invigorating burst of physical energy and extreme mental clarity, while the long term effects gradually boost the immune system and increase stamina and will power.  Participants will be taught a specific set of exercises, first learning each one step-by-step, then practicing them linked together in succession, using the group energy to create palpable swell of energy.

The acupressure portion of the workshop will include a brief overview of the Chinese meridian system, while spending the majority of the time focusing on hands-on, practical applications of the theory.  Students will work individually and with partners, learning to apply the healing massage techniques to both oneself and to others.  No previous bodywork experience is required.

LIVING SUTRAS: TAKING YOGA WISDOM BEYOND THE MAT workshop, Practice + Book Signing with AMY PEARCE-HAYDEN

Join Author and seasoned yoga teacher, Amy Pearce-Hayden for a journey into the ancient theory of classical yoga as codified by Patanjali and his Yoga Sutras.  The workshop will begin with an introduction to the eight-limbed path, followed by an asana practice designed to cultivate a deeper connection to the innate wisdom each of us carry that will be put to paper after. Group journaling and discussion follow practice with the text and Amy as your guide. 

In its highest form, yoga is a practice for your body and your mind. 

Living the Sutras brings the wisdom of classical yoga philosophy into your life in an accessible and relevant way. The Yoga Sutras, a foundational text of yoga philosophy and practice, written by the guru Patanjali over two thousand years ago, are made up of 196 aphorisms that offer potent teachings on how to deal with loss and pain, and guidance on how to lead a healthy and fulfilling life. Kelly DiNardo and Amy Pearce-Hayden offer an enjoyable entrée to this yoga training for the mind and spirit by introducing a sutra or group of sutras on a related theme, providing a brief commentary, and then offering writing prompts to allow you to reflect on and apply the meaning of the sutras to your life. The book is at once an introduction to the classical philosophy, a quick guide for students and teachers, and an active self-study that helps you to engage with the wisdom in a deeply personal way.

KATONAH YOGA® WITH PUPPIES! with ALISON GRANDE + BRENDA DEROSE

As part of a pilot program, Katonah Yoga is working with Bedford-based A New Chance Animal Rescue (ANCAR) for a special “Yoga with Puppies” class. All class fees will be donated to ANCAR to support their mission to help homeless and helpless dogs.

The wellness benefits of interacting with dogs are widely documented, and this gentle yoga class will give students the chance to share the space with the puppies and interact during their practice. Early socialization is important for the puppies' development to prepare them for adoption. 

About the puppies: 

The puppies who will be joining this class were born locally just days after their mom was transported here from a kill shelter in the South. Now 10 weeks old, they are vulnerable to germs, so appropriate health protocols for both puppies and people for this special class have been set by ANCAR. 

For more information about A New Chance Animal Rescue and photos of adorable adoptable dogs please go to www.anewchancear.org

REWIRE. HIPS. with WINI LINGUVIC

We all have an electrical current running through our body. In yoga this current is referred to as Prana.  In internal martial arts this current is referred to as Chi.

Whatever we call this internal current, all traditional healing modalities focus on the moving of energy to repair, restore and recalibrate the body.

 Please join us for an afternoon exploration of how to DRIVE our internal current through the forms and fits of Katonah Yoga. Expect to deconstruct and reconstruct forms and frames as we drive the powerful triad of intellect, imagination and breath through the tightest parts of our hips. Our practice will close with the Recipe For Clarity, a deep recalibration of the body inspired by the work of Nevine Michaan.

Wini Linguvic is the owner of the elevate practice, in Pacifica, California.  Wini’s aim as a teacher is to provide an accessible and practical map through the mystical and often overwhelming routes of yoga. Her work is highly influenced by her time with Nevine Michaan, who taught her there is magic in science and science in magic.

THE ALCHEMY OF WINTER with IVY RAY + EVA GIORGI

"It is only when the formed learns from the unformed that there is understanding"  -Lao Tzu

Welcome to Yin, the dark, the moon, the womb. Winter is the Apex of the seasonal cycle, the gestation of the year's work. It is an essential and potent time of Restoration, Inspiration and Embodiment; of warmth, quiet, inner reflection and self care. In Traditional Chinese Medicine, it is the season of Kidney,  our waters, the official of the body, the storehouse of our qi/life force, longevity, safety, vitality, willpower and so much more. Join us as we move away from the extraneous, delve into our depths, and use ourselves well to take best advantage of this season's purpose, intelligence and magic. 

Together we will stoke our fires, strengthen our roots, and soothe our souls. We will up your technique for Winter through asana, restorative, pranayama, sound and meditation practices; recipes for seasonal scents, foods, and music, all for a conscious, healing, joyful winter. Let's greet Spring whole, different, and new.

"I believe I know the only cure, which is to make one’s center of life inside of one’s self, not selfishly or excludingly, but with a kind of unassailable serenity — to decorate one’s inner house so richly that one is content there, glad to welcome anyone who wants to come and stay, but happy all the same when one is inevitably alone."  -Edith Wharton 1862-1937
