SUMMER SOLSTICE ° SUMMER KICKSTART ° Katonah yoga class in English - live & via zoom
Time & Location
About the event
The warmth of summer gives us the power to fully celebrate life in its bounty. It is the season of growth and maturation, of gardens bursting with flowers and vegetables.
Summer in our hemisphere is the warmest season; it also means heat, or fire. This element associated with summer gives us that feeling of warmth, urgency, and in particular the feeling of happiness.
The Fire element is the spark from which all of life derives and the emotion associated with Fire is joy, which, when in balance, represents an overflowing enthusiasm for life. An excess of Fire, however, can create hyperexcitability and restlessness, while a deficiency of Fire can produce a lack of joy and a feeling of apathy.
The Heart and Small Intestine organ system is predominant during Summer, so its energy is now at its peak. The Heart performs many energy functions that are vital to the health of your entire body, mind and spirit. On a very deep level, it just isn’t possible to have true health without a peaceful Heart.
This 60 minute Katonah class is filled with asana, pranayama and theory. It is a celebration for the summer season!
Let's start this new season and new week with taking care of our hearts and pumping our lungs to be uplifted for the new adventures!

Katonah Yoga uses the poses to help each student move from what it calls their “first nature”—one’s unconscious habitual patterns that they came into this world with and may not be serving them—to their “second nature,” defined as the functional habits learned (reading, getting dressed, manners, etc) that become effortless. Turning off autopilot allows you to act consciously. Katonah Yoga isn’t always liked initially because it’s unfamiliar. It doesn’t let us be ourselves on the mat. But we come to the mat to transform, not to do what we are already good at. We practice for information that is both new and that will take us somewhere.
