50 Hour Katonah Yoga Intensive Training at The Studio

With Abbie Galvin and guest teachers at The Studio

Substantiate yourself, develop competency, and free up your imagination. From the esoteric ideas of Taosim to the very pragmatic way to hold a right angle, we will move through techniques that articulate the Katonah Yoga theory that you may have heard but have not yet made use of in your teaching or embodied in your practice.

Whether you are a teacher seeking theory in order to better mentor your students, a student searching to deepen your practice, a practitioner dealing with an injury, or a new practitioner seeking a way to integrate yoga into your life; our intensive will inform, inspire, and usher you on your path towards becoming a sphere of influence in and out of the yoga room.

Price: $1450 ($1250 early bird before October 1st)

Tuning the Instrument: Teaching the Therapeutic Private
Oct
27
to Oct 29

Tuning the Instrument: Teaching the Therapeutic Private

You are a yoga teacher and practitioner.
You have someone who is interested in private yoga sessions with you. What do you do?

 

A private yoga session is different from a group practice. In a private, you tune your instrument, in a class, you play for the symphony! This workshop is focused on training teachers to work with privates. Learn Katonah techniques to precisely read and adjust your private students. We will cover a basic structure for sequencing and organizing a session to best serve the needs of different types of students. You will gain hands-on experience to gain confidence through applied knowledge.


YOU WILL LEARN AND EXPERIENCE: 
-  Working with older students
-  Working with injuries and limited mobility
-  Body readings/diagnostics
-  Breakdown of frequently used poses and techniques along with their adjustments/modifications
-  Language: how to open lungs, pump up kidneys, filter livers, modulate temperature, and self-soothe

This training will be small and personal, enabling each participant to get the information that will best support them in empowering others. Specific questions can be emailed to Dages in advance, or feel to bring in your real life examples for mentoring.


BIO: 
 

Dages has been teaching privates for fifteen years and had time to try to help, make mistakes, learn skills, and refine her techniques. Private yoga sessions constitute the great majority of her teaching, and she has worked with an eclectic swath of New Yorkers during her career, from hedge fund managers to homemakers to hockey players.

Beginning in 2002, her studies have earned her accreditations in both the Bihar and Kundalini lineages. Her syncretic teaching style has been profoundly impacted by immersion in studies with her mentor Nevine Michaan, founder of Katonah Yoga. Recent collaborations include a series of workshops with Elena Brower pairing pranayama and aromatherapy, and retreats and teacher trainings with veteran Katonah teacher Abbie Galvin, Sacred Fig founder Anton Brandt, and SKY TING co-founder Chloe Kernaghan in Bali, Dominican Republic, Greece, and Morocco. 


TUITION:
The cost of the program is $435 (10% discount for SKY TING TT and mentorship grads).

Radical Acts of Embodiment: Katonah Yoga 30-Hour TT Intensive in Bali

RADICAL ACTS OF EMBODIMENT
A KATONAH YOGA® 30-Hour Teacher Training Intensive

Sunday, February 18, 2018 – Saturday, February 24, 2018
Ubud, Bali

Balinese-rice-fields.jpg

THE INTENSIVE

The political is personal. The personal is practical.

Our bodies are not abstract, they are not delusional, they are the home of reality. All of our lives happen right here, there is nowhere else to live from. Our bodies and minds have never been split, although we have felt them to be. We are not institutions, we are not museums, we are not abstractions, we are not sites of occupation or projects of improvement. Our mind/bodies are symphonies of polyglot, polyrhythmic conversations.

Learn how to use the Katonah Yoga practice to potentiate and empower yourself.

In this intensive, led by Dages Juvelier Keates and assisted by Jessica Chin, practitioners will gain a better understanding of the integrity of the practice in summation. From the metaphors to the adjustments, the philosophy to the physics, the material adds up. Perfect for practitioners and teachers acquiring hours to teach Katonah Yoga as well as those seeking a deeper, higher experience of embodiment.

UBUD, BALI

Ubud is in the heart of Bali, Indonesia, verdant with lush terraces and exploding with life. There are ample opportunities to learn from the ancient culture here, to be differently with time, with ritual, with color. Ubud is embraced by the island’s most beautiful rice fields and ancient monuments, a place where the culture extends its rich history to visitors. Ubud gets its name from the Balinese word “ubad,” meaning medicine; it is a deeply spiritual and unique place, full of music and magic!

THE VILLA

Our retreat villa is a 10-minute drive from Ubud Center. The villa is surrounded by famed rice paddy fields on one side and a rainforest on the other. The villa’s sprawling gardens, with its Balinese pavilions and lanterns situated throughout, merge seamlessly with the living spaces and to give you a feel of being in a tree house. The lush gardens have beautiful flowers, edible plants, and organic vegetables and herbs. The villa sources predominantly organic and locally grown produce for food that is sustainable, pure, simple, and real. The villa believes in the axiom “your food is your medicine” and strives for delicious, healthy, and healing foods beneficial to the body. To begin your day, a healthy breakfast selection of fresh fruit and cold-pressed vegetable and fruit juices, whole-grain bread, eggs, cheese, muesli, and yogurt. Delicious dinners offer fresh salads, creamy soups, hearty sandwiches, and local Indonesian favorites. (NOTE: The villa serves vegetarian only: no meat or seafood. Lunch is on your own so that you may have more time to see local sights and experience local cuisine.) The villa’s luxurious spa offers massages, holistic and Ayurvedic treatments, and manicures and pedicures—pamper yourself and be transported into a more blissful state.

THE PRACTICE

This intensive will deepen your understanding of Katonah Yoga’s central metaphors and practices. Your body is your house, your personal abode; you want to know how to have a party and clean it up! Every day will feature asana, pranayama, meditation, and other therapeutic practices. Sessions will include lecture, demonstration, and plenty of hands-on, attuned adjustments. You will learn to systematically organize yourself in order to amplify your energy, flush your glands, and rewire your neurology. Learn tricks and techniques uniquely syncretized to facilitate a deep sense of presence and vibrancy.

If you have had a taste of Katonah’s singular material and want a broader understanding of theory and practice, this experience is for you!

This 30-hour TT intensive can be counted towards a 200hr KATONAH YOGA® Teacher certification.

KATONAH YOGA® was founded by Nevine Michaan, and is a Hatha yoga practice refined over forty years, blended with Taoist theory, sacred geometries, pranayama, and meditation. For more information, visit www.katonahyoga.com.

DAILY SCHEDULE

Come join me on February 18 - February 24, 2018 (7 days | 6 nights). Plan on arriving 2pm on Sunday, February 18 (our first group session is yoga at 5pm) and leaving after brunch on Saturday, February 24. (We will help coordinate transportation from the airport upon arrival and departure to the airport.) Each day is balanced between group activities and luxury time for yourself. There are tons of optional activities, and you can dive into as much or as little as you want!

Below is a sample schedule, giving you a sense of your week in Bali (it may vary once we actually get started), so by the week’s end, you can come home relaxed, more centered, and more renewed in spirit and mind!

8am - 9:30am
Practice
Asana is origami for bodies. The first part of this vigorous practice will break down the angles and measures of Katonah classics: dogs, hangs, squares, lunges, squats, and pigeons. From there, we will dive into an ocean of fluency, knitting asana together with poetic sequencing. Afterwards, we will plumb the depths and whip up the heights with an ecstatic and pragmatic pranayama extravaganza!

9:30am - 10:30am
Breakfast
Enjoy a healthy and nutritious breakfast, or take some personal time to reflect.

10:30am - 12pm
Daily Workshop
Your Body is a Magical Abode: The Metaphors of Katonah Yoga
Recipes for Joy: The Alchemy of Pranayama
The Magic Square: Maps and Wraps for Rapture
Tuning the Instrument: Adjusting, Handling, Manipulating
Teaching the Therapeutic Private
Becoming Spherical: Yoga for Longevity

12:30-6pm
Self-Care and Discovery
Receive treatments, relax by the pool, enjoy the villa, or see the sights of Ubud. (Lunch is at your own expense.) We will plan some optional excursions together, such as herb walk or temple visit.

6pm - 7:30pm
Clinic
The evening practice will focus on individual questions and concerns. We will take time to set up conditions for body reading, adjustments, and attunements of each individual. A private yoga session is different from a group practice. In a private, you tune your instrument, in a class, you play for the symphony!

7:30pm - 9pm
Dinner
Enjoy fresh, delicious Balinese cuisine
