THE WHOLISTIC NATURE OF GREAT NATURE THE KATONAH YOGA MATERIAL AND YOU: IN SPACE AND TIME WITH SENIOR KATONAH YOGA INSTRUCTOR IVY RAY

Each Attendee will receive Nevines most recent Katonah Yoga Planner, complete with every map/geographical chart and supportive theoretical material to date in the Katonah Yoga Material.

Everything provides Insight. In the communal/the world, On the Line, the insight is You in relation to things, others, systems. You are continually shown how well you intersect. How you communicate, cooperate, collaborate, how quickly you can shift gears, change course, change mind, navigate territory, be timely. It's the daily test drive and calls upon you use your technique and skillfully manage/manipulate Space, Time, circumstances, others and always your self. Every road leads to You and there's always a wild card. We will work with the specific techniques associated with this as form determines function ability and good fit-ups function.

Practicing in Solitude takes place In Time, In the Round and the insight is you in relation to you. It provides the fundamental playground for better knowing/becoming of ones self, more evenly developed freely functional. Its the door to self-intimacy, care, kindness, safety, love, perhaps tending with a lighter hand, a softer landing and is always the sacred space for the inevitable work when things fall apart. This is where you remember, reorder, reclaim, where you restore, replenish, refine. Its where the therapeutic work of restoration and longevity primarily occur. It’s where you self manage/organize, where you find You at the center and grow/strengthen/ripen in the vortex of time. Additionally, a wealth of opportunity to simply figure things out, reevaluate, work on what you've lost, develop what you’ve never had. At least its this and more for me.

Practicing in solitude is the ongoing birthplace of you and your emergence. Your Insight is the growing ground of your unique contribution as a teacher or whatever you do. Your solo practice is yours and is developed by your design. It evolves as you, the seasons, your life and your needs change.

Join me as we work with both of these essential elements of distinct practice

Day 1: On The Line in SPACE

We will work with Explicit, your 2nd Nature, you in Space, on the line. Space is fixed, it is linear and provides reflection “a line of inquiry is reflected in response to memory”-Nevine. We will work w the Yang of you, the solar, the skill set side, the tough love side, Your Mobility, ability, agility and refer to the ongoing training of your beautiful mind in this. These are the tools and techniques that you use in your life and into the world on a daily basis. We will orient and organize via the Magic Square with a good solid pragmatic and esoteric breakdown of this Magical Grid, our primary map and its ever-evolving living content and uses.

Day 2: In the Round TIME

We will work with your 1st Nature, with the Yin of you, the lunar, In Time, in the Round, Time is the vortex of the present, it is spherical, “experience is circumstantial, it provides revelation, being Revelatory is Revolutionary”-Nevine. Your Stability, Wisdom/Patience side, your inherent potential, the hand you were delt, your heart side, your ancestry, your ever emergent self, into the Restoration and Longevity work and subtle practices of breath, mapped meditations, evolutions.

All Into 3rd Nature. The Implicit. Your soul imbued with Cosmic Material.

We will circle it all up In Integration, lst in Movement and then circumambulate our selves in an evolutionary meditation, weaving 1st, 2nd and 3rd Nature unified, as a braid, as One Taste, As All of You, thrice threaded into A singular Expression.

And at the end, we will open the floor to your questions!

All hours with Ivy go toward your Katonah Yoga Certification.

Your body is where EVERYTHING lives, happens + thrives. Grow/build a more safe, sane, functional, JOYFUL you, a viable, worthy container for all of what you are, duly prepared for what life may hand you and in an aim of becoming more evenly developed, freely functional, powerful, virtuous, women, men, leaders, teachers, parents, lovers, friends. ~ Ivy Ray

 “Katonah Yoga is not a practice, you can’t just do Katonah Yoga, you use it as a method in Yoga. That's why when people come to me and say they want to teach Katonah Yoga, you have to have something else, they have to do Ashtanga, they have to do Iyengar, they have to do something else, because you are only original when you know something else”.

~ Nevine Michaan

Dear new and In the making Katonah Yoga teachers, all students and my peers

Join us and experience Nevine's Magic the through me, the literal embodiment of her vast material over two decades, in myself and at one with a living system in my life and where I've chosen to land in my contribution to the developing landscape of Katonah Yoga and its future; it's up and coming teachers. This training will be indicative of this choice and the Public Reveal of My Katonah Yoga Advanced Mentorship Program.

You will be valued, respected and held high. I have been quietly mentoring teachers that are either in the process of their Katonah Certifications or complete and in some cases, their communities for quite some time now.  Encouraging and empowering them to remember who they are, to own where they are already an authority, to find their own voice, cadence and by their own design, to consciously select elements to weave and teach through their ongoing lives and traditions, you can't teach it all. Time is revelatory and it will ripen you and the work in and through you. From where I stand, You deserve a life and teaching that are unified, that extend from You, as its center, sovereign of your domain, level/in alignment with your own natural response, not someone else's. From my experience, this produces great Joy, fulfillment and freedom and a sustainable environment that becomes the fertile ground from which your own continued emergence and wholistic development can grow and flourish.

When you attend a training, even a class, from a seasoned Katonah Yoga instructor you receive a synthesis of their heritage, experience, culture, previous studies, tradition, achievements, their rhythm, use of language; their very nature, teaching through the blueprint of the Katonah Yoga Material. In essence, we are composing the experience while weaving in components of our choice. This is personal and not, though, You are there and conducting, your presence speaks volumes. The freedom and creativity that Nevine has afforded in this is quite profound and unique. This is why she requests you experience us all. These women, myself included, are not interested in homogenizing themselves, they are invested in fully Being themselves while teaching this work. They are each an individual product of it. We do in fact all teach and use the material differently and we are distinct, primarily women, doing so, though many men are certainly coming on board now. How and what we choose to teach is by our own design, all of this is what makes us Unique.  This is your extraordinary opportunity in the privileged participation of the system that Nevine has spent her life meticulously selecting and organizing. The sum total of all these parts is what makes her and the work she continues to evolve, an ever emergent Whole, utterly Original.

Bless You with the Light of a Thousand Suns Nevine Michaan.

Love, Ivy Ray

WHAT WE WILL COVER: Below are some of the signature elements we will delve into pragmatically, technically and esoterically threaded with my own insight. Many of these are by request from the two potent teachers, Michelle and Jen, who are sponsoring and participating in this training. The others are some of the aspects of the Katonah Yoga material that are an Integral part of my living web.

MEDITATION: I began sitting as a young child. Over the years, it became more formal moving through the lens of Zen, Tao, Chogyam Trumpa, Nature, Integral Theory, Alan Watts, Vipassana, Egyptian Mysticism, Hermetic Philosophy, Insight, Course in Miracles and on. Over the last 20, I have been weaving Nevines material in, especially in most recent years with our maps and evolutions.  We will do a guided meditation daily.

ADJUSTMENTS: A select number of consensual, discerning, conscious adjustments and much supportive dialog

PRANAYAMA: Our Signature Pranayama, deconstructed and additionally taught at a learning cadence so you can own it.

NUMBER/GEOMETRY: The One The Many. The sequential structure of everything, the ladder that leads to higher intelligence

KATONAH INFORMED VINYASA On Weaving language throughout this tradition, potent pauses and sneaky tricks. I began teaching Nevine’s work, in my beginnings, by leading Ashtanga slow motion, threaded with this material.

PRACTICING IN SOLITUDE: The power and vast potential of practicing on your own, a primary component of Katonah Yoga: Restorative and Longevity work and whatever else you need to work on, additionally it is an essential opportunity for self-tending, feeding, caring, intimacy. You cannot give what you do not own for yourself. This is where I tend to the living garden of my life. Including the structuring of this work for your students.

GREAT NATURE: The absolute display, a patterned blueprint for living in harmony/balance/overall well being within yourself and the natural world. The key to understanding the whole. You are a micro of the macro

TEACHING WITHOUT PHYSICAL CONTACT: You may choose to be a teacher who doesn't have communal adjustments during your classes or vary it. It's up to you. Learning to use your voice and language to guide a room or individual thoroughly through a pose, with little or no physical contact is potent and provides a unique own age for your students.

YOU NOW IN SPACE AND TIME: Reflections/Revelations Technicality on the Explicit/Implicit On the Line in the Round 1st 2nd 3rd, 4th Nature into an eventual Braid of One Taste and Nevines brilliance on Time.

READING THE BODY: The fine art of RePositioning, the pragmatic technicality, imaginative and graceful means of reading someone's body

THE MAGIC SQUARE: Cohesive elaboration and insights on the Magic Square, a new method to practice with it, which becomes a great tool for teaching and some of what each position contains, the grid and numbers are set and its overall evolutionary current/content is living and ever emergent.

THE GOLDEN THREAD: Embodying the Magic Square with your narrative thread, imagination and cosmic material; a Continuum of you and perhaps some of the other mapped meditations, evolutions.

ANATOMY OF A CLASS A Katonah communal experience and much of what's possible there. We will work with this, as we practice each day. It lies in your hands as to how to create, govern, direct and structure this.

WHOLISTIC PRIVATE INSTRUCTION: We Begin with you, into the Katonah Yoga Blueprint of Reading a Body, where it goes from here depends on who you are, who you are working with, your previous experience, current skill set and your imagination. I have been primarily working one on one for 20 years.

TAO: The nature of things. Pragmatic, Graceful, Lucid Instruction on the Art Of Living

POLARITY MEDIATED BY TRINITY: Much on this as the nucleus of this work is in threes, Including a simple potent method of using the Triad in your daily life and teaching

WHEN THINGS FALL APART in your life, in a classroom, in a private, In the moment.

ALL OF THIS will be woven with and in some cases separate components on Hermetic Philosophy, Ken Wilbur’s Integral Theory as in alignment with Katonah Yoga, Asana as Origami, tensegrity (tension and integrity) super sensibility and Music. “Without music, life would be a mistake” Friedrich Nietzsche A

BLUEPRINT OF OUR TIME

4 hour am session - Opening dialog, ritual or meditation. Breakdown of the day Communal practice, pranayama, mapped meditations and select theoretical material

3 hour free time to replenish/spend time in nature: recalibrate, integrate, reflect/enjoy, partner up to work with others

1:00 PM13:00

SPRING MASTER CLASS WITH IVY RAY AT THE MOTHERSHIP: ON CLEANING HOUSE BECOMING NEW UNI VISION AND MAGIC

It is here. yay! In Great Nature and in You. In the natural world, Spring is the birthing season, the time for development and creation. In You its the opportunity to Begin Again, re-evaluate and grow yourself new. Time to clean out, let go, lighten up and make way for what's to come. Spring is the Wood element, which governs all living growing trees, plants and the human being. Its the strengthening of the roots, the trunk, the limbs, the joints and is correlated with the idea and your capacity for mental clarity, discernment, decision making. This fortuitous birthing and growing season is in process until June 21st, the first day of Summer.

In the Chinese System, the primary organ for Spring is the Liver. The liver has more than a hundred known functions. A Peek into: The liver is your endurance in life. The liver is the master laboratory of the body, it is in charge of dispersion and dredging: it is largely responsible for the regulation of emotion, it is related to anger and anger impairs its function, it governs digestion and absorption, the circulation of qi and blood, as well as our reproductive function. The liver houses the hun (our spiritual consciousness) the hun is essential to our spiritual and psychological dynamic. Lastly, the liver is connected to our eyes, their physiological function as well as our capacity for Vision.

Join us for a rigorous (as Spring calls for nothing less) buoyant, lively, informative, alchemizing practice: heating, spinning, twisting, bending, strengthening, all woven with pranayama to clean you out and keep it light, springs magic to support and inspire, while threading in visionary possibilities of insight, outsight, peripheral, hind, fore, reflective, revelatory, fluid, static, honed, vast, multi, UNI  ahhh there's no end :)!

 We will circle it all up in a guided meditation to reorient/organize; recalibrate, be fed by Springs Magic and Power and InVision your new self in the making.

 Following, we will open the floor for questions and/or your Insights.

Happy Spring Everyone! Hope to see you.

3 HR'S OF KATONAH YOGA:  CHANGE OF SEASON CHANGE OF EVERYTHING CHANGE OF YOU:   SPRING! AT ROCK YOGA
Apr
27
11:00 AM11:00

3 HR'S OF KATONAH YOGA: CHANGE OF SEASON CHANGE OF EVERYTHING CHANGE OF YOU: SPRING! AT ROCK YOGA

It's happening! Wake Up, Sleepyhead. The season of renewal, regeneration, birth in Great nature and in You. Everything coming out, New.

Seasonal transitions are tricky and the most stressful time on the body, the emotions, the mind. There's much that can be done to lighten this load as we lighten ourselves and prepare for this season. Its time to clean your house, your self, and make room for the new. Spring in the Chinese system is the liver and the gallbladder. The liver is responsible for moving our blood, our Qi, our feelings, our thoughts. It is the master filter of the body, is directly associated with our vision: Insight, Outsight, Foresight and true vision of what has been. Its the most regenerative of all the organs, so its forgiving, but you gotta do your work. Its emotional component is Anger, not expressing in a healthy way damages our livers, makes them stagnant. The healthier the liver, the less this rises, so feeling a little pissed/irritated lately?
Spring is the season to tend to this system.

Join me as we move through seasonal specific pragmatic, calculable techniques and theoretical material associated with readying ourselves for what is truly considered your opportunity to Begin Again. We will practice, breath, sweat, twist and shout (thats the sound in chinese theory for Spring!) Get it all out so you are empty to be filled and born anew. 

From the pragmatic mysticism of TAO, to skillful self-management/manipulation of YOU, all through the body, breath and imagination, we will work with number, the magic in measure, form, fit, function, distilling this and more into pragmatic tools and techniques which bring it all into You, where it is designed to be Worn, Used, Lived, in an aim of becoming more evenly developed/freely functional, joyful, badass, virtuous, women, men, partners, teachers, parents, friends

Upon registration, will receive an Incredible Ayurvedic Spring Cleanse to begin the process.
Don't worry you get to eat, its Yummy! and crazy good for you.

SIGN UP ! http://www.n up!nprockyoga.com/workshops--special-events.html

Look forward to being with you all again and hopeful to meet some new faces. 
Big Love and Happy Spring You'all

3 HR KATONAH YOGA INTENSIVE AT THE ASSEMBLAGE NOMAD NYC: THE POWER AND PRIViLEGE OF BEING WHO YOU ARE

Welcome to an informative, impactful, even revolutionary experience, In your body, where everything lives and happens and thrives via the Unique synthesis of Katonah Yoga. We will work with the Explicit, (you, into the world, on the line) and The Implicit (you into Yourself, in Time) We will Orient and Organize with pragmatic absolutes such as Great Nature, number, geometry, measure, Tao and the Lou Shu Magic Square, all through the body, breath and imagination. Everyone is welcome, one of my strengths is teaching those who don’t do Yoga.

Factual: Form determines functionality and a better fit-ups function. It also increases, defines, and regulates the current within, from your bones to organs, glands, nervous system to brain, your senses, your soul.  Your overall well-being is contingent upon all of this in graceful balance/collaboration. Your effectiveness/consistency in the world, how well u intersect and produce, is greatly determined by your technical expertise, your form, into a well-organized Self-managed /Skillfully manipulated You.

Let's methodically practice, in a lively insightful communal, all in an aim of becoming more evenly developed, freely functional, safe, sane, badass, virtuous, joyful, women, men, lovers, leaders, parents, teachers, friends….

10 HOUR KATONAH YOGA INTENSIVE THE LONG GAME: WHOLISTC NATURE OF GREAT NATURE THE KATONAH YOGA MATERIAL AND YOU: THE IMPLICIT
Mar

to Mar 24

10 HOUR KATONAH YOGA INTENSIVE THE LONG GAME: WHOLISTC NATURE OF GREAT NATURE THE KATONAH YOGA MATERIAL AND YOU: THE IMPLICIT

It is highly recommended to attend both days. You are certainly welcome to come for just one~ Ivy will be assisted by Mara Lileas.

In my series The Long Game, we have been exploring the Wholistic/Complete Nature of Great Nature, The Katonah Yoga Material and You through the template of the Explicit and the Implicit, On the line and In the Round. In this Intensive, we will delve into The Implicit further. In alignment with Nevine Michaan’s work, our techniques will be methodical and specific.

"To know everything it is necessary to know only a very little, but to know that very little one must know pretty much." —Gurdjieff

You are never not there. In 1st and 2nd Nature, as the self, lower case s, you are the source, the maker of all your words and deeds, the director of all and how you intersect, the quality of your product and you are what everything extends from. And in 3rd Nature let’s devise that the Self is with a Capital S the one and only subject, the witness of it all, your soul. Original. Unfettered.

The self is it. There is no place you are not. You are the operative Doer and Be-er. The mediator, the modulator, the point of neutralization. The apex of the Triad. So it stands relevant to gain more cohesive immediate awareness/access, to what you are, and just what you've got to work with.

As with Nevine’s techniques in the body, the goal is not always to alter what is there and obvious/strong but to occupy where one doesn't go, knowing, in time, this changes everything by virtue of increasing the consciousness; changing the nature of the whole. A good frame provides this. Eventually, imagination can override technique, it all becoming a more magical living organic experience, a wave between the two.

We will be using two specific techniques/practices from Ken Wilbur, of Integral Theory. These which work side by side, hand in hand, are immediate, informative insightful and impactful. I’ve been practicing and facilitating this work for about 15 years.

One of these skillful means provides much greater access to your interior, your self and specific technique to utilize what is revealed. The other induces multiple perspectives with definitive means to facilitate these new views.


What to expect

In preparation each day we will begin with a full Katonah Yoga communal practice followed by pranayama and a set up of your house, the magic abode for you and Spirit, via the Magic Square into a Golden Thread Meditation and some of the weaves. We will set the conditions to be safe, known, founded and grounded.

Each day I will then facilitate one of the techniques to the collective, following we will open the floor for dialog and then we will partner up, with assistance, to practice on one another, and again we will open the floor.

All in an aim of becoming more evenly developed, freely functional, wholistic, joyful, virtuous women, men, partners, parents, teachers, friends and on...

Everyone is Welcome. All hours with Ivy go toward your Katonah Yoga certification.

FEB 10 HOUR KATONAH YOGA INTENSIVE TEACHER TRAINING THE LONG GAME The Power and Vast Possibility of Practicing in Solitude

10 HR KATONAH YOGA TRAINING: THE LONG GAME, The Power and Vast Possibility of Practicing in Solitude with Ivy Ray

KATONAH YOGA CENTER 39 Main St Bedford Hills, NY 10507 Registration https://www.katonahyoga.com/workshops/2019/1/11/10-katonah-yoga-training-the-long-game-with-ivy-ray

Ivy is a Senior Katonah Yoga Instructor. She has been with Nevine and her core group of teachers, practicing, processing and teaching this material for 20 years. Ivy will be assisted by Robin Kidder.

Join me as we deconstruct all of whats possible in a solo practice.

Everything provides Insight. In the communal/the world, On the Line and in Space, the insight is You in relation to things, others, systems. You are continually shown how well you intersect. How you communicate, cooperate, collaborate, how quickly you can shift gears, change course, change mind, navigate territory, be timely. It's the daily test drive and calls upon you to orient organize, use your techniques and skillfully manipulate Space, Time, Circumstances, others and always your self. Every road leads to You. Your presence and action speak volumes. And there's always a wild card.

Practicing in Solitude takes place In Time, In the Round and the insight is you in relation to you. It provides the fundamental playground for becoming more evenly developed freely functional. Its the door to self-intimacy, care, kindness, safety, perhaps tending with a lighter hand, a softer landing and is always the sacred space for the inevitable work when things fall apart.

This is where you remember, reorder, reclaim, where you restore, replenish, refine. It’s where you self manage/organize, where you find YOU at the center and grow/strengthen you in that vortex.

It can also be where you figure things out, prioritize, work on what you've lost, develop what you never had. Lastly for now, its a grand opportunity to work on You as a teacher, your articulations, your sequencing, your choices of what material to work with in the beginning. Practicing in solitude is the ongoing birthplace of you/your emergence. Your Insight is the breeding ground of your unique contribution as a Katonah Yoga Instructor. Your home practice is yours and is developed by your design. It evolves as you, the seasons, your life and your needs change.

Day 1: In the Round TIME

We will work with the Yin of you, the lunar, the restoration and Longevity work, subtle practices of breath, meditations, evolutions, circuits and perhaps some new insight on working w the Magic Square. We will then break it down by practicing on one another.

Day 2: On The Line SPACE

We will work w the Yang of you, the skillset side, the solar and all things associated with your form and technique that takes you out into the world each day. Your roots, strenth, agility, ability and your beautiful mind. We will also play with how to take best advantage of your time and solo practice by simultaneously working through the lens of teaching. This is a fascinating and very useful technique. We will wrap it up by weaving it all together.

All hours with Ivy go toward your Katonah Yoga Certification. $350

Your body is where EVERYTHING lives, happens + thrives. Grow/build a more safe, sane, functional, JOYFUL you, a viable, worthy container for all of what you are, duly prepared for what life may hand you.

The Technical Art of Repositioning AT BEBHAKTI YOGA

The Technical Art of Repositioning AT BEBHAKTI YOGA

Orientation and Organization IN TIME AND SPACE into the skillful manipulation/management of self is one of the primary keys to Over-All Well Being. A Good Joyful Life.

As children and through many stages of our lives, we have all positioned ourselves, consciously and unconsciously, in order to simply handle/manage life, in many cases, this positioning saved us, In most, it no longer serves.

We re-evaluate our finances, our companies, our relationships we don't re-evaluate our bodies; our positioning. Positioning is everything.

Having a personal assessment, a reading of the body as we call it, enables us to experience ourselves differently, in the moment, often for the very first time, exactly where we belong, in time and space, versus where we think we belong, where we have set our selves due to our habits, our strengths, our weaknesses, our unconscious choices. This is often quite startling. This is done pragmatically, via the magic in measure and direction and it changes where you are, in relation to yourself and Everything. It provides you with a new experience coupled with much insight. Anytime you are some place different, you have a different experience. I will then provide simple techniques that support this becoming an ongoing new positioning in your self and therefore your life as they are one and the same.

Your body is where Everything lives, happens+thrives. Join us as we grow/build a more safe, sane, functional you, a viable, worthy container for all of what you are, duly prepared for what life may hand you. Individual/Communal practice for Personal/Universal Well-Being. 8 people Maximum $45 dollars


This workshop is designed for teachers and students alike as well as those seeking to incorporate a practice into their daily lives. ALL ARE WELCOME.
