Meet Abbie Galvin

Special guest teacher Abbie Galvin from NYC has a background in filmmaking, psychoanalysis, and decades as a Katonah teacher and yoga studio owner. Her first experience with Katonah inspired a chemical reaction that changed the course of her career and entire life.

Abbie has studied extensively with Nevine Michaan, who founded the Katonah yoga method and has been teaching yoga since 1980. Abbie’s perspective emphasizes the sacred geometry of the body, the art of repetition, and the psychology of self-awareness and unconscious patterning.

Step out of your comfort zone

Learning is for everyone. We’re all students of the practice — whatever that practice may be — yoga, meditation, life. Come as you are, wherever you are on your walk. No experience is required. You don’t have to be a teacher to digest and integrate the wisdom you’ll learn.

What to expect…

From the esoteric ideas of Taosim to the very pragmatic way to hold a right angle in your body, we will move through techniques that articulate the Katonah Yoga theory. Empowered by this knowledge and a safe container to practice within, you’ll have new tools to integrate into your teaching and your personal life.

We’ll take a deep dive into the theory and practice of:

Hands on adjustments
Assist and support your students so they can access new ways to experience a posture
Restorative Yoga
Calm the nervous system and melt into a gentle, low-impact practice
Working with Props
Use objects to bring more ease, or more effort, into certain shapes and movements
Teaching private sessions
Give additional guidance in one-on-one settings
Developing a home practive
Explore your personal practice within your own walls
Body reading
Sharpen your perception and learn to read the body’s language
Theory of the Magic Square
Embody the magic square in your hands, feet, head, pelvis and torso
Use the breath as a tool for expansion
And more
To be discovered...

Because the Katonah practice is so rich in metaphor, regular classes — while wonderful — can’t always dwell on the philosophy behind the physical practice; but the immersion provided the perfect amount of time to ask questions, workshop postures and delve into theory.

Reinforcing the Daoist principles through complimentary viewpoints, teachers and areas of practice, the intensive helped me see how patterns manifest in our bodies and poses in a myriad of related ways. With this understanding, I now have greater structure and resources for my home practice and beyond.

— Holly Caracappa (30 Hour Trainee)

...to the first Katonah Yoga class I took some 25 years ago. So much so that I changed my career, my mothering, my friends, my analyst, my diet, and the way that I saw myself. That implicit but powerful shift led me deeper into the atmosphere of my spirit, planting the seed of insight for how I would work and live.
