Workshop One

Katonah Yoga Fundamentals

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

Workshop Two

Weaving Geometric Measure into a Vinyasa Practice

The translation of Vinyasa means to place in a special way. This placement is not arbitrary, and you find your true flow when things fit together and function well particularly yourself.

Katonah Yoga® gives us the tools and techniques to explore the forms (postures) in an inFORMative way that offer insights into our bodily patterns. To have a FORMidible practice you need to harness the steadiness of geometry.

In this yoga workshop we will focus on how to self inform rather than just perform in our practice. We will explore how geometric integrity and the theory of Katonah yoga will give you a more well-adjusted and informed dynamic vinyasa experience.

Katonah yoga is a commingling of Hatha yoga poses integrated with theories of sacred geometry to help develop stability and dimension. It has a Taoist philosophy to help observe how we conform to nature’s patterns in our bodies. 

The practice is also peppered with Pranayama and Kundalini that moves breath through our physical terrain, serving as a conduit between the body and mind, soothing the soul. The goal of the practice is to become whole, in order to live a life of integrity and happiness.

Open to both teachers and students who are curious to explore this methodology more.

Workshop Three

Playing the Long Game

No matter how many years old  we are it is important to recognise the impermanent reality of the body, and that, as we go through life, change is inevitable. This is the beauty of an asana practice. The time we carve out for our practice gives us the opportunity to explore the inner landscape of our physicality and the subtle beauty of aging.

In this Katonah yoga workshop we will explore our sacred structure, using simple angles and geometry to create a steady framework for our asana practice. This framework will allow us to see our embodied habits and personal stories in a way that gives us important information and feedback. Traditional postures will be explored with new techniques and tools to implement a healthy, sustainable, and joyful practice that you can keep for life.

We will be working with both aspects of our nature – your yang side: the skillset, form and technique that takes you out into the world each day – your strengths, agility and ability – how you show up time and time again.  And also your yin side: how you allow yourself time to go inwards using restorative poses, subtle practices of breath and meditations. Expect to have revelations.

Workshop Four

Re-imagining Your Yoga Practice

In this Katonah yoga workshop we will explore asana and pattern in a way that gives us techniques and insights to use your time well in order to live a healthy, joyful and productive life.

A pose is never held, but rather articulated and redefined so personal techniques and unconscious habits give way to new ways of consciously traveling one’s terrain. This is what improves the function of form, one’s housing for organs, glands, bones.

Get ready to let go of old patterns and habits that don’t serve you or your practice anymore, and embrace new tools to up the function of your life both on and off the mat. This workshop is perfect for practitioners of all levels and styles, teachers and students.

Learn to organise yourself – use technique to leverage – and re-embody your practice.
