(KATONAH YOGA® accredited education)

No matter who you are, you fit yourself well. Your knees can fit your armpits, your feet behind your head, your heels into your palms. Using these fits functionally, you can train your practice to be framed and well adjusted. Yoga practice gives you an opportunity to measure up, re-organize your forms, and find the awe that you were designed to fit into yourself and the world with effortless effort. Reorienting from within your practice, you can find points of contact and communication. 

This training is offered to teachers and dedicated practitioners, and offers an embodied approach to getting deeper into an existing asana practice. Yoga articulates a philosophy of the body that is both formal and informative. Alignment focused, theory forward, this training will give students new insights from the esoteric ideas of subtle body anatomies to the pragmatic use of geometry to sustain form. We will cover all aspects of Katonah Yoga’s unique practices, including adjustments, restorative, teaching privates, home practice, body reading, magic square, breath work and more.

This immersion will focus on application and adjustment. 

The three hour morning session will be an immersive personal laboratory for mobility, stability, fits, formality and refinement. Morning sessions are open to all who want a deep, satisfying autumnal practice that will open your lungs, flush your organs, and bring the deep release that comes through intelligent effort.

After the break, our afternoon sessions will focus on the fundamentals of how to analyze a person's form and adjust it. Our emphasis is building skills, techniques, and understanding the architecture of our most practiced asana through precision and applied theory. 



We will cover:

- Maps and Materials: Katonah Yoga’s charts and glyphs, including the Magic Square and Wraps for Rapture

- Principles and Geometry of alignment in yoga poses, archetypes of numbers

- Hands-on Adjustments, modifications for injuries, elders / sensitive students

- Working with newbies, injuries, older students and those with limited mobility- -

- Body readings/diagnostics for informing personal practice

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

- Working with props: straps, blocks, chairs, poles, sandbags and their substitutes

KATONAH YOGA® was founded by Nevine Michaan, and is a Hatha yoga practice refined over forty years, blended with Taoist theory, sacred geometries, pranayama, and meditation. For more information, please visit www.katonahyoga.com.
