A 10 Hour Katonah® Yoga Program


17.08 & 18.08.2019 with Gillian 

Every experience gives us insight. In the yoga room, students can be encouraged to utilize the experiences they've had, both on and off the mat and leverage it to their advantage. When we as teachers share usefull tools to cross-reference the Katonah material, students can ultimately leave with greater insight and the ability to lean into their potential.

"Form informs flow. Flow deepens form". - Nevine Michaan, Founder of Katonah Yoga, New York

All Yoga is good.
Katonah Yoga concepts and teachings should make sense in your practice, in your teaching, and add to what you do. Developing an ‘inviting culture in class is important, as people come to the room having had different experiences. ‘Yes, and,’ can become a symbolic phrase to apply to all conversations, and brings joy to all in the room.


Appropriating Katonah Yoga Culture.

Having lived and worked in Australia, Canada, England and Germany, I have had my fair share of insightful experiences teaching. When fears and limiting beliefs are strong in a room, injuries can happen. Creative solutions to bring the material to different audiences, age groups, cultures and backgrounds is something we will take time to look at. 



For this mother of three, DVD author and dedicated teacher, yoga represents an intelligent system of harmonizing all of the dynamic layers of the human experience. Body. Spirit. Nature. Truth. The Universe.


This is the life long journey that leads us back to yoga, again and again. We unfold ourselves, peel back the layers, open the blockages that plug up with fear and indecision.


Yoga for Gillian, has become  "kinesthetic awareness therapy" that leads people back to themselves, empowered, grounded, energized, and awake.


Day 1 - an adjustment-heavy day

FORM INFORMS FLOW (Katonah Yoga Vinyasa Flow)
Vinyasa Yoga is wonderful, dynamic, fluid. Vinyasa means ‘to flow’, and to flow is fun when one is well-versed in a practice. In this Katonah Yoga session, we cover concepts to developingan eye for people in poses, to become better attuned, aligned, in the practice.
Following our first session, we explore how the poses, through Katonah Yoga alignment, link to one another. For bodies that are challenged by opening up, we can design the pose to allow more freedom within the limitations. For bodies that are mobile and move around well, we can offer structural support for stronger boundaries. Both these options are explored through hands-on and verbal adjustment techniques.

"Your strengths become your weakness, your weakness becomes your strength" - Nevine Michaan

Day 2 - Cross-referencing

Yes, and...’

Cross-referencing Katonah Yoga Theory with different yoga and movement teachings and practices, seeing Katonah Yoga in everything. There are so many types of movement, yet Nevine teaches, that they are all the same. 


Involves partner and group work for adjustments, measurements and explores lots of progressions and regressions, to give practitioners of all levels something to play with.


70% practice, 30% theory.


This 10 hour training is creditable towards the 200 hour Katonah Yoga certification.
