Everything you do is part of your practice, and you are not one thing, but a constellation of information. This 20-hour training will reveal that the way to up your skill and awareness is not to run only one race, but to learn to connect concepts that have been curated to help you know yourself and embody your potential. The practices:
That Smooth Joint: articulations refined for Yoga & Life
Make strength where you need it, and space where you don’t have it. Optimize yourself by isolating joints so that muscles operate properly to unlock usable ranges of motion. When each joint in your body can move without compensation from other areas, you maximize potential and minimize pain.
Sacred Geometry Vinyasa Practice, Pranayama & Meditation
Learn to use your own proportions to chart a course from effort to grace. Refined techniques and rich metaphors create a practice of sustainable intensity that balances strength and flexibility. Think clean folds for smoother floats, stability for arm balances, backbends that don’t hurt your back, and conceptual consistency that makes your own body the map for moving meditation.
Interactive explorations of the philosophy of practice, and practical techniques for self-inquiry including but not limited to the magic square of Katonah Yoga.
Skill Practice & Breath Work
Focused work towards specific skills (including handstand and press handstand) scaled to those in attendance. Walk away with a plan to go where you want to go and the vision to avoid common pitfalls. Unwind it all with restorative breath-work that asks you to sign on to nothing but consciousness.
