About this Event

Katonah Yoga Theory is palimpsestic - it is to be layered onto other layers of knowledge, practice, and teaching. In a communal setting amongst fellow yoga teachers, we will explore Nevine Michaan’s material through physical practice, breathwork, and theory. Expect to embody geometric measures, develop the eye to see and manipulate form, and strengthen one’s voice for constructive teaching dialogue.

About Katonah Yoga

A practice developed by Nevine Michaan of over 45 years - Katonah Yoga incorporates classical Hatha yoga with Taoist theory, sacred geometry, magic, mythology, metaphor and imagination in a practical framework designed to potentiate personal and communal well-being. Framing the practice with maps of time and personal space are defined and refined.

Incorporating themes using asana as origami, manipulating form for function, and developing a sense of personal measure.

Katonah Yoga is organized around three principles of esoteric dialogue:

  • All polarities are mediated by trinity
  • The universe has pattern, pattern implies intelligence
  • By virtue of repetition there is potential for insight

If you are new to Katonah Yoga, here is a podcast for you.

About Clare Lim Martin

She holds 1000+ hours of teacher training certifications, across Yoga and Pilates, and finds her studies with Nevine Michaan, founder of Katonah Yoga, most potent and applicable to various teaching modalities.

Clare is also the host of (p+i), Perspectives and Iterations, a podcast exploring various perspectives and takes on Katonah Yoga.

Is this a Teacher Training?

Yes and no. Yes, it is a teacher training in the sense that hours are bankable towards one's Katonah Yoga 200-hour certification. And, no, in the sense that these 2-hour sessions will likely feel a lot like a nice, long class - perfect for yoga teachers and advanced yoga practitioners to immerse into a deep practice.

If you are interested in participating in longer form (4-6h daily) teacher trainings, please look out for our upcoming 15 and 20 hour teacher trainings, Q221.

What if I am already a yoga teacher in another style/method?

We welcome you to join us with an open mind, and participate in open dialogue in exploration of possibilities to overlay various teachings and techniques, on top of one another. Nevine Michaan, founder of Katonah Yoga, always encourages her students (who are often yoga teachers of different lineages themselves) to go and study with different teachers, and figure out how to 'put it all together'. At Katonah Yoga, it is actually highly encouraged for aspiring teachers to attain their foundational 200-hour certificate elsewhere, before immersing into the material. So, if you already have one or two other teaching certificates, great! We can workshop ways to enliven your teaching, open you (and your students) up to more options, more techniques.

Can I attend via Zoom?

Yes! If you are anywhere else in the world, or simply prefer to maintain strict social distancing, we can definitely have zoom into sessions instead. If you are outside of Hong Kong, please note our session times are 2-4PM HK time, so we are generally time zone-friendly to those in Asia, Australia/New Zealand, Europe. If you are keen to join, but prefer a recording, please get in touch after signing up, and we will make it happen for you.
