Katonah Yoga Workshop at Lucent

:: Katonah Yoga at Lucent ::

Sunday, February 7, 2016 : 2:30pm - 5:30pm - $50

 

Katonah Yoga is a practice rooted in Taoist theory using sacred geometry, metaphor and the physical exploration of archetypes to recognize and restructure the patterns found in one's body and one's life. The practice is encompassed by the idea that through changing one’s physiology, the psychology follows. Katonah employs principles to organize and explore patterns in nature that are found in the body in order to live conscious, well-adjusted lives.

Expanding Your Practice With Katonah Yoga

In this workshop Abbie and Alex will lead you through a general Katonah Yoga class where you will be introduced to asana as metaphor and the embodiment of theory where strength is not a muscular grip, but an intellectual construction of one's structure. A pose is never held, but rather articulated and redefined so personal techniques and unconscious habits give way to new ways of consciously traveling one's terrain. This is what improves the function of form, one's housing for organs, glands, bones.

We will break the postures down in order to more deeply understand the three floors of the body; the penthouse - one's clairvoyance, the living quarters - one's heart and lungs, and the boiler room - one's primitive nature. We will close with a pranayama practice positioning ourselves in the realm of our imagination, spirit and higher vision in order to finish our practice in ascension. There will be hands-on adjustments, structural discussions of poses and how to set them up and a communal discussion based workshop portion providing you with the opportunity to learn more of the Katonah practice and to come away having honed several new skills and ideas for working more efficiently as teachers and students.
