KATONAH YOGA®Workshop: Form, Flow & Function with Senior Vinyasa Teacher and Katonah Yoga® Instructor Mary Dana Abbott
December 1 at Inlet Yoga in Manasquan
Often what is familiar feels correct and we will repeat the same habits even when they serve us no longer. In this workshop we will look at the building blocks of asana from the lens of sacred geometry and origami, in order to take a step back from the personal and have real insights into what is working for us and what is not. Then we will apply what we learned in a vinyasa experience, exploring how form and flow work synergistically to give us a functional relationship with our bodies that will serve us long and serve us well.

Meditation is simple, easy to learn practice that is of tremendous benefit to one’s physical and mental health. It is a wonderful tool for improving the quality of life, enhancing the depth of yoga practice, and increasing happiness and peace of mind. This workshop is a mini-meditation retreat, useful for beginners and experienced meditators. Participants are given instruction in Mindfulness Meditation (Vipassana) and tools for integrating meditation into daily life. You will learn practices that can be used to reduce stress at home, and in your professional life. Participants complete the workshop feeling refreshed and restored, with a new sense of calm, deepened inner peace, and a heightened awareness of – and appreciation for – your life, your relationships, and your surroundings.
We will experience several cycles of sitting meditation, walking meditation, and lying-down meditation, periods of “dharma talk,” and questions and answers. We will use our time together to cultivate mindfulness and relaxed alertness in as many aspects of life as possible.
