Pranayama: Metaphors, Maps and Wraps of Katonah Yoga
With Dages Juvelier Keates
In the most exhilarating moments of life, your breath is there. In the deepest grief, there too you will find the omnipresent melody of materiality, your precious breath. Vacillating between practices that stimulate and soothe, pranayama allows you to come home, to be alone with yourself. Katonah pranayama techniques are gateways to the dual tasks of learning to both soothe and stimulate oneself.
Training in pranayama is different from an asana practice. Deepen your understanding of Katonah Yoga’s potent embodied maps for reorganizing oneself in time and space through the vehicle of the breath. Gain competency in articulating your practice and refining your imagination.
For teachers and practitioners alike.
KATONAH YOGA® was founded by Nevine Michaan, and is a Hatha yoga practice refined over forty years, blended with Taoist theory, sacred geometries, pranayama, and meditation. For more information, please visit katonahyoga.com.
