About the event

In this intensive 5 hour training we'll go through the layers of our existence using the theory of Katonah yoga. We will study the alignments and assisting (supporting) yourself and others.

We will discover how to:

- align the body using the hidden geometry

- travel through the muscle memory

- understand the layers and the personal timeline

- use the practice to your advantage

- play with the chemistry of the body (playing with the glands and organs)

- use the props to navigate into new places 

- assist and adjust others (and yourself) safely

And much much more!

"To be well adjusted, one must consciously integrate all three floors of the body. Each floor expresses different parts of the whole, while housing unique information, functions, and efficiencies. The first floor, our lower body, substantiates us, housing our first nature, our ancestry, our stability, our grounding. The second floor, our upper body, potentiates us, housing our second nature, our capacity, our competence, our participation. The third floor, our head, liberates us, housing our vision, our imagination, our antenna, giving us the ability to see all the way around ourselves.

In Katonah Yoga, asana is seen as metaphor. For example how you move through a forward bend reflects how you move forward in daily life. The goal of this practice is a healthy body and greater consciousness, using poses to explore and free up your body, mind, and life. Develop your depths for stability and increase your capasity to participate in the world.

Katonah Yoga teaches you to work smarter, not harder. In fact, muscles aren’t mentioned. For example, when a teacher in another style might ask you to engage your core in Plank, a Katonah teacher would instead ask you to move your bones and organs in two directions at once (heels backward and lungs forward). In this style, stability is created through the alignment and angles of the bones and joints. Think of a building, its strength comes from its structure (or bones) not from the cement (which Katonah compares to muscle). And according to Chinese Medicine energy moves through organs, bones, and joints, as opposed to muscles, which are too dense. So a well-aligned Katonah pose allows energy currents to move through you, making asana feel effortless. Katonah also teaches that when you use your bones as a boundary, you can only go so far, making you less likely to injure yourself, overstretch, or overtwist."
