Member Tuition:

We are no longer taking online registrations for this workshop.

In Katonah Yoga, asana is seen as metaphor. How you move through a forward bend, for example, reflects how you move forward—or don’t—in your daily life.

The goal of Katonah Yoga is a healthy body and greater consciousness. Poses are used to explore and free up your body, mind, and ultimately your life.

Guided by Katonah Yoga founder Nevine Michaan and Katonah Yoga instructor Abbie Galvin, you practice classical hatha yoga and breathing techniques (pranayama), and explore the power of the practice as you develop your depths for stability, your capacity to participate in the world, and your ability to carry yourself across the thresholds of life by creating safety, sanity, resiliency, and self-actualization.

In this weekend workshop, you gain an enhanced understanding of yourself and learn the tools, techniques, and blueprints necessary to develop a potent and sustainable practice that transcends yoga trends and brands, and shows you how to participate in your own well-being.

Anyone at any level of yoga experience is invited.

Katonah Yoga instructor Abbie Galvin blends her creative process as a filmmaker and her psychoanalytic training into a yoga practice that encourages dialogue between her students’ conscious and unconscious selves.
