We will taste life light up, while insulating and strengthening our nervous system through the manipulation of breath, conscious usage of the senses and internal integrity via Now Time Evolutions and Meditations.
We will experience the relevancy, certainty and potency of knowing where we are, what is there and how to get where we're headed via the territorial wisdom of Nevine Michaan's Maps.
All this will be woven through the blueprint of the natural world via the seasons, pattern,
medicine and magic of the Chinese system and pragmatic mysticism of Tao.

KATONAH YOGA® was founded by Nevine Michaan of Katonah Yoga Center over 30 years ago. Influenced by the study of Hatha yoga, Chinese theory, and sacred geometry, she created, developed, and continues to refine this unique practice. Both esoteric and pragmatic, the Katonah theory and its practice promotes self-awareness through techniques that foster well-being, which facilitates personal transformation.
The essence of all Hatha Yoga practice is the postures (asanas). Once the basic posture is achieved, the form of the posture can then be deepened through study and through the work of the breath. As an aid to deepening the experience of the postures, Katonah Yoga employs the vast resources of Taoist thought, a branch of Chinese philosophy, which is several thousand years old. This simple, very clear system of natural laws and correspondences is used in Katonah Yoga as a kind of image bank to help move the mind through the body, and to deepen the mental understanding of the individual poses. The synthesis of Taoist and classical Yogic thought produces a poetry of interpretation which is unique to Katonah Yoga.
