About Katonah YOGA 

Katonah Yoga is a syncretic Hatha yoga practice developed by Nevine Michaan over 40 years. She and her teachers incorporate classical Hatha yoga with Taoist theory, geometry, magic, mythology, metaphor, and imagination— in a practical framework designed to potentiate personal and communal well-being. Framing the practice, maps of time and personal space are defined and refined. The themes of using asana as origami, manipulating form for function, and developing a sense of personal measure are incorporated in Katonah Yoga practices. 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. Disciplined techniques are organized for revelation through revolutions. KatonahYoga.com
