No matter who you are, you fit yourself well. Your knees can fit your armpits, your feet behind your head, your heels into your palms. Using these fits functionally, you can train your practice to be framed and well adjusted. Yoga practice gives you an opportunity to measure up, re-organize your forms, and find the awe that you were designed to fit into yourself and the world with effortless effort. Reorienting from within your practice, you can find points of contact and communication.
This training is offered to teachers and dedicated practitioners, and offers an embodied approach to getting deeper into an existing asana practice. Yoga articulates a philosophy of the body that is both formal and informative. Alignment focused, theory forward, this training will give students new insights from the esoteric ideas of subtle body anatomies to the pragmatic use of geometry to sustain form. We will cover all aspects of Katonah Yoga’s unique practices, including adjustments, restorative, teaching privates, home practice, body reading, magic square, breath work and more.
Learn techniques to adjust yourself and your students in order to maximize revelation and minimize common mistakes. This workshop is focused on training students to work with straps, blocks, hands, feet, poles, chairs and more for personal care, and eventually supporting others. You will gain competence through hands-on experience, and confidence through applied knowledge. Every day will begin with three hours of Katonah Yoga practice: asana, pranayama, meditation. Afternoon sessions will dive into the depths of applied theory.We will cover:
• Maps and Materials: Katonah Yoga’s charts and glyphs, including the Magic Square and Wraps for Rapture
• Principles and Geometry of alignment in yoga poses, archetypes of numbers
• Hands-on Adjustments, modifications for injuries, elders / sensitive students
• Working with newbies, injuries, older students and those with limited mobility
• Body readings/diagnostics for informing personal practice
• Breakdown of frequently used poses and techniques along with their adjustments/modifications
• Working with props: straps, blocks, chairs, poles, sandbags and their substitutesAbout Dages:
