All hours with Ivy Ray go toward your Katonah Yoga Certification. EVERYONE IS WELCOME

If you are new to the Katonah Yoga material our time together will serve perfectly as an introductory. This wholistic system is designed to be used, worn, lived in your current life/tradition.

 YOU ARE WHOLE. A micro of the macro. A holon, which is a whole, complete; entire, unto itself (personal) that is simultaneously part of a greater whole (universal.) To make the wholeness of you more workable, we subdivide, as nature has, the Yin of you, the Yang of you, intersecting into a third, to include your soul. These aspects, begin to make up the whole of you, first nature, yin, second nature, yang and their intersecting channel of your third nature, your soul/Spirit "...until the formed learns from the unformed, there is no understanding." Tao Te Ching

 EVERYTHING PROVIDES INSIGHT. Over this intensive, we will begin to learn to work with all of ourselves. To wander this territory successfully, you need a really good map, pragmatic calculable technique, supportive theoretical material and of course your body, breath and a keen imagination, all in an aim of becoming more evenly developed, freely functional wholistic women and men.

FIRST HALF: Our emphasis will be You into the communal, culture, the world. The Yang of you, the more active Solar principle. Your 2nd Nature. 

In the world, the ongoing insight is You in relation to things, others, systems. You are continually shown how well you intersect, articulate, cooperate, collaborate, how quickly you can shift gears, change course, navigate territory, be timely. You are called upon to manage space, time, circumstance, others and always your self. You may often get your butt kicked out there. We will work with the pragmatic fundamental positioning that supports and grows your mobility, ability, virility, safety and vision in the world.

SECOND HALF: Our emphasis will be You in relation to yourself, the Yin of You, the more receptive subtle yet equally as powerful Lunar Principal. The vehicle for this is Practicing in Solitude where the insight is you in relation to you and how you intersect with your interpersonal relationships; family, significant other, dear friends.

Practicing in solitude is the birthplace of your continued emergence and the growing ground that spawns the quality and sensibility of the self you take into life. This is where you remember, reorder, reclaim, where you restore, replenish, refine. The sacred space for when things fall apart. Likewise, Its where you kick your own butt, justly study who you are, daily fill your own cup to runneth over so you don't give from your resources. Lastly, its a wealth of opportunity to simply figure stuff out, tweak your form, work on what you’ve lost, develop what you’ve never had and give yourself what you need, as its all ultimately your job. Your solo practice is yours and is developed by your design. It evolves as you, the seasons, your life and your needs change. 

Here You Are: First Nature, Second Nature, and their intersecting channel of Your Third Nature, Your Soul/Spirit. Thrice threaded makes a braid, a trinity of You, eventually as One Taste, Interrelated, Ever Emergent, Complete, All ongoing through Great Nature and every moment of your Life.
