In this workshop, you’ll learn about the beauty and benefits of Katonah Yoga - a syncretic Hatha yoga practice developed by Nevine Michaan for over 40 years. Katonah Yoga works to incorporate classical Hatha yoga with Taoist theory, geometry, magic, mythology, metaphor and imagination - all within a practical framework designed to potentiate personal and communal well-being. We will learn about using asana as origami for the body, manipulating form for function and developing a sense of personal measure that you can take with you in your life on and off the mat. We will explore the different organ systems of the body and learn about our personal foibles and narratives. We'll explore the places where we get stuck in mind, body, and life and set our vision high to break through those blockages. This workshop will be movement based, so wear something you can get a little sweaty in! Feel free to bring a journal and something to write with as we will also move into some theory.
