True power evolves through the ability to maintain a fluid state of mind and body. Vinyasa is a unique and creative combination of flowing, unwinding, and circular asanas infused with breath and continuous movement designed to stimulate the prana or life-force energy. Allow your body’s movements to become expressions of pure prana! Pranayama or breath awareness, alignment, and hands-on assistance are integral parts of this dynamic class. Flow with the pulse of Life! Advanced beginners to intermediate students.
ADVANCED BEGINNERS – INTERMEDIATE LEVEL
Class begins with a slow warm up along with variations on sun salutations. Then moving into a slow detail oriented practice where the alignment of poses are addressed in a manner to encourage overall wellbeing and safety in the practice, as well as expression of the heart. Classes include an engaging flow of postures, demonstrations, individual adjustments and modifications. ALL LEVELS
Somatic yoga flow liberates us from layers of involuntary holding patterns and cultivates a deeper awareness and understanding of our natural state of being. A full range of non-patterned movement, from dynamic full-bodied expression to subtle micro-movements, stimulating neurological growth and vibrancy. These subtle micro movements permeate tissue, softens boundaries and amplify sensation. Awareness of habitual moving, thinking and attention patterns is possible; and with awareness sits liberation.
QUIET YIN CRYSTAL BOWL MEDITATION
Slowly and deeply we allow gravity to open us up while quietly listening inward to our bodies. With gentle cueing and plenty of space to welcome the sweetness of silence. A sequence of long held poses in which we practice being with ourselves exactly as we are. Yin Yoga focuses on releasing the connective tissue in the body creating suppleness at the core and developing a deeper, inner awareness. This class is appropriate for all levels as well as prenatal students.
HIPPY VINYASA FLOW
Linking breath and movement together to gracefully guide the body through various layers of opening and receiving the vital life force within us. Followed by low to the ground deep hip openers to wind you down for the evening. A blend of dynamic flow and longer slower holds. Leaving your hips happy and groovy!

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. We are all designed symmetrically the same but each individually express unique differences in form. Katonah Yoga explores and plays with the archetypal forms of the asanas with respect for each individual’s personal form. The intention is to make one’s practice less personal and more archetypal while working mindfully and having fun. Starting slowly, ramping up and ending with relaxation, this practice allows one to prepare, digest and integrate new information. For more information, please visit www.katonahyoga.com .
