READING THE BODY: 20 HOUR KATONAH YOGA ® TRAINING
For teachers and practitioner’s alike, this training will empower you with tools to not only move your own body, but to manipulate others. Far deeper than modern day anatomy, you will be given the esoteric maps, enabling you to see why a body is positioning itself in time and space. Habits, genetics, and day to day repetition alter the course of where true centre lies. Life pulls us out of this stable place and each misalignment ripples throughout one’s whole body - then into the way one interacts with the world.
The body is the mind and without proper awareness of bodily movements, one’s psyche is affected. This training will go deep into one-on-one work creating a nourishing, reformative, and deeply transformative framework for the other person. Whether you are a teacher looking to augment your work with new technique, or a practitioner looking to deepen the study of the body, you will leave informed and transformed.
Dive deep into your internal terrain using the maps of Katonah Yoga and the taoist methodology of aligning yourself to your circumstances. Leave revolutionized, enabled, empowered, embodied.

RADICAL ACTS OF EMBODIMENT: KATONAH YOGA® TO EMPOWER ONESELF AND OTHERS
One’s body is not a project or a problem, it is the place each of us is always and already living from. Embodied practice can turn us toward that reality and away from tendencies to dissociate. To live in each of our changing, growing, yearning, dying, aging bodies is to be in touch with what is profoundly human. Practice is not to degrade oneself or aggrandize oneself, but to find the complexity of life as it is on a human scale.
Weekend One will focus on practices to empower, potentiate, and protect oneself.
Weekend Two will focus on participation in collective well being through teaching, adjusting, and bolstering others with Katonah Yoga ®.
