CLASS DESCRIPTIONS

VINYASA An open-level class using breath as a guide to movement. This class seamlessly blends asana, pranayama, and mindfulness practices and is designed to energize you physically and restore you mentally. Classes marked Live Music Vinyasa will have rotating guest musicians creating a soundscape to accompany the class. 

MEDITATION In this 30 min class you will first be taught how to prepare your seat for meditation, there will be a 20 minute sit where the teacher will guide you through various meditation techniques, leaving space for stillness, then you will have an opportunity to share what came up for you, ask questions, and hear about others' experiences.

 

CANDLELIT KATONAH RESTORATIVE Soothe your aches and pains and clear out joint space in this open level candlelit class. The goal of a Katonah restorative class is to reform the body through archetypal poses such as supported backbends, hip openers, twists, and long forward folds. There will be hands on adjustments and breathwork. 

FUNCTIONAL YOGA  (Intermediate) Traditional yoga vinyasa sequences along with strength building techniques and somatic experience tools. There are both breathwork and mindfulness segments as stand alone modalities and integrated throughout the practice.

BEGINNER YOGA If you've never done yoga before or are coming back to it after a long hiatus this is the class for you. We will move at a slower pace with a lot of attention to detail and focus on the foundational yoga postures, simple breath work, and meditation. You are welcome to ask questions during class and to take breaks when needed.

INTER/ADV VINYASA This vinyasa class will move at a moderate pace and include more opportunities for arm balances, inversions, backbends, and deeper hip openers such as lotus variations and yoganidrasana.

MAHA SADHANA Influenced by several yoga traditions such as Katonah, Ashtanga, and Hatha, this two hour intermediate/advanced level class will include variations/progressions for different levels of practitioners and will include pranayama (breathwork) and meditation.

LED ASHTANGA YOGA This one hour offering follows the traditional ashtanga sequence. It is a forum for more experienced practitioners to move more deeply into their practice, and for those newer to ashtanga to explore and learn about it in a safe space. Some prior yoga experience is suggested, but all levels and bodies are welcome.

KATONAH YOGA We all move through life in habitual, personal, and largely unconscious ways. Over time this can lead to imbalances in the body, and potentially to chronic pain or even injury. In a Katonah Yoga class you will learn yoga postures that are archetypal, measured, and conscious so that you can begin to reform your physiology in a way that leads to better function, ease, and joy. Open Level.

PRENATAL/POSTNATAL YOGA This gentle flowing class is an opportunity to stretch and strengthen the body through postures, pelvic floor exercises, breath work, meditation, vocal release, and other tools. These can all be used to assist with preparation for labor and delivery. In every class we will cultivate ways to channel your innate wisdom, divine strength, and connection to your baby. Students are welcome to bring their babies up to six months old. Partners and friends are also welcome.
