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:
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.
— Holly Caracappa (30 Hour Trainee)
Learning with the right teacher has the potential to change your life.
It is an honour to host Abbie Galvin, a leader in the world of Katonah yoga with a fountain of knowledge to share.
This will be so much more than a physical experience — it will be an opportunity to evolve as both student and teacher, on and off the mat.

Hear from trainees
Listen to Chelsea Delle Palme and Sara Gallagher Bloom speak about the transformative nature of the Katonah training and practice:
...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.
