Katonah Yoga® is a syncretic Hatha yoga practice developed by Nevine Michaan over 40 years. She and her teachers incorporate classical Hatha yoga with Taoist theory, geometry, magic, mythology, metaphor, and imagination — in a practical framework designed to potentiate personal and communal well-being. Framing the practice, maps of time and personal space are defined and refined. Themes using asana as origami, manipulating form for function, and developing a sense of personal measure are incorporated in Katonah Yoga practices.
Katonah Yoga is organized around three principles of esoteric dialogue: all polarities are mediated by trinity; the universe has pattern, pattern belies intelligence; by virtue of repetition there is potential for insight. Disciplined techniques are organized for revelation through revolutions.

"Yoga can be radical and revelatory. Saturate yourself in the development of a versatile practice that can be translated and augmented through whatever yoga you already know. Learn how to use props, straps, and adjustments to evolve your practice and teaching. Confidence is based on competency, which is rooted in experience and repetition. Gain confidence, refine your practice, amplify your techniques." - Dages Juvelier Keates
