This class is based on the principles of KATONAH YOGA ®, a syncretic Hatha yoga practice developed by Nevine Michaan of Katonah Yoga Center for over 40 years.
This practice is designed to incorporate classical Hatha yoga with Taoist theory, geometry, metaphor, and imagination in a practical framework designed to potentiate personal and communal well-being.
Framing the practice, maps of time and personal space are defined and refined. Themes using asana as origami, manipulating form for function, and developing a sense of personal measure are incorporated in Katonah Yoga practices.
Katonah Yoga is organized around three principles of esoteric dialogue: all polarities are mediated by trinity; the universe has pattern, pattern belies intelligence; by virtue of repetition there is potential for insight. Disciplined techniques are organized for revelation through revolutions.
In this class you will be taught a commingling of classical Hatha yoga poses integrated with theories of sacred geometry and measure that serve to develop stability, ability, vision and dimension, peppered with Pranayama, to move breath through the body’s terrain, serving as a conduit between the body and mind and soothe the soul.
The goal of the practice is to become whole, in order to live a life of integrity and happiness.
