KATONAH YOGA FLOW
Katonah Yoga teaches practitioners to fit each posture to their own body frame. The body is meant to “fit” from top to bottom and right to left. For example, your knee fits into your armpit in a lunge, and when it does, you get stability. This approach to poses sheds light on your habits, offering fresh perspective and insight. These classes integrate the theory and techniques of Katonah Yoga® with fluid vinyasa choreography, sequencing with body mapping to help organise and orient the body for an experience that informs and reforms.
Yin yoga is a slow and mindful practice, where you hold postures for much longer periods of time than in most forms of hatha yoga, typically 3-5 minutes. Rather than muscular effort, you use gravity and your own body weight to go deeper into the postures. This allows access to the fascia and connective tissue, which in the Taoist tradition are thought of as the “yin” tissues of the body. Different Yin yoga poses stimulate and remove blockages in the myofascial meridians in the body, which in turn balances the body’s internal organs and systems
A restorative yoga class typically involves only five or six poses, supported by props that allow you to completely relax and rest. Held for 5 minutes or more, restorative poses include light twists, seated forward folds, and gentle backbends. Restorative yoga balances a fast lifestyle and has an enormous capacity to heal physical and mental symptoms that are stress related, and as we know, many diseases these days are stress related.
Ever notice how soothing a simple sigh can be at the end of a long day? There are a variety of breathing techniques that are known to reduce stress, aid in digestion, improve sleep, and cool you down and heat you up. In yoga, we refer to this breath work as pranayama which translates to the extension of life force. Research shows that a regular practice of controlled breathing can decrease the effects of stress on the body and increase overall physical and mental health.
MYOFASCIA: ROLL AND RELEASE
Using balls and other props this myofascia release class will help to enhance the body’s natural healing capabilities through gentle stretching of the connective tissue, or fascia, that surrounds muscles and organs. Injuries, inflammation and even poor posture can put pressure on nerves and muscles causing chronic pain. By targeting areas of the body with balls and rollers you get to experience flushing and compression to help release stored tension.
Using the Using the Katonah Yoga methodology a one-on-one class will begin with a body reading and then a class will be sequenced to best serve your needs. The benefits of a private class will help restore and increase optimum health and vitality. They will be organised around your unique needs and schedule.
Private classes are ideal for working with injuries, older students and those with limited mobility; and also if you are serious about your yoga journey and want to go deeper.
