In this series of Katonah Yoga workshops, you have an opportunity to experience and break down the powerful concepts, body maps, poses and unique adjustments. Experience its use of geometric measure that will infuse your yoga practice with dimension, energy, and refinement.
Discover a map with which to navigate your practice. If a pose is measured well, the body is supported by its own structure rather than relying on muscle. And learn how to reform your unconscious habits, to organise and orient yourself in time and space, and observe how yoga is origami for the body.
Explore these ideas and approaches to your practice from this magical yet pragmatic lens.

Yoga is a process of replacing old patterns, with new and more appropriate patterns
In this Katonah Yoga Foundations workshop you will explore using techniques of geometric measure to infuse your practice with dimension, energy, and refinement.
These techniques offer 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 so badly when we come to yoga. 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 yoga’s potency. And in Katonah Yoga® it’s both!
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 different – knowing the destination is always joy.
