Cultivating a yoga practice organizes you; combining personal religion with a communal bend.
We believe every effort inspirit of self reflection, responsibility and revelation can be a recipe to galvanize compassion and accountability in the macro.
In short, how you show up for yourself flavors your every interaction.
In this intensive we will dive into a variety of tangible techniques to support personal growth in relation to collective wellbeing. We will weave Katonah Yoga’s synthesis of myth, math, metaphor and Chinese Medicine through the pragmatic, palpable fits of the body in Asana to the subtle arts of holding space, articulating and adjusting while conducting a communal class.
Expect to be moved through embodied Katonah Yoga practices, pranayama, and group work.
Offered to teachers and students of all lineages and levels in service of cultivating a culture of contact and consent in Katonah Yoga and the community at large.
Lauren Buckles is a yoga teacher in the Hudson Valley and works with both youth and adults. Lauren's teachings blend Katonah Yoga and mindfulness to create classes built on compassion and curiosity. She believes when our practice is rooted in both curiosity and safety, we can honestly notice how we are in moments of comfort and discomfort. We can notice our personal patterns, without judgement.
Lauren joyfully and gratefully studies and practices Katonah Yoga with her mentor, Eva Giorgi and Katonah Yoga founder Nevine Michaan.
Eva’s dedication in cultivating an integrated, creative practice in relation to land, cosmos, plants and people weaves her holistic approach in facilitating personal discovery, healing, and communal well-being.
Eva began formal training with Katonah Yoga founder, Nevine Michaan in 2004. Katonah Yoga is syncretic, with roots in various lineages and philosophies; each thread embroidering every modality Eva studies and uses in her practice(s). Eva collaborated with Nevine in developing the Katonah Yoga Teacher Training program in which she serves as a guiding light and mentor for those in training as well as for Katonah Yoga teachers whom compass Nevine’s material globally.
