10 Hr Katonah Yoga Weekend Immersive Training with Ivy Ray
Nov 16, 2019| $330
If you are new to the Katonah Yoga material our time together will serve perfectly as an Introductory. This Wholistic system is designed to be lived/woven into your current life/tradition. All hours with Ivy Ray are bankable toward your Katonah Yoga Certification.
Everyone is Welcome
YOU ARE WHOLE. A micro of the macro.
A holon, which is a whole, complete; entire, unto itself (personal) that is simultaneously part of a greater whole (universal.) To make the wholeness of you more workable, we subdivide, as nature has, the Yin of you, the Yang of you, intersecting into a third, to include your soul.
“…until the formed learns from the unformed, there is no understanding.” Tao Teh Ching
Over this weekend, we will begin to learn to work with all of ourselves.
To wander this territory successfully, you need a really good map, pragmatic calculable technique, supportive theoretical material and of course your body, breath and a keen imagination, all in an aim of becoming more evenly developed, freely functional wholistic women and men.
Everything Provides Insight
DAY ONE: Saturday, November 16, 12pm-5pm
Our emphasis will be You into the communal, culture, the world. The Yang of you, the more active Solar principle. Your 2nd Nature.
In the world, the ongoing insight is You in relation to things, others, systems. You are continually shown how well you intersect, articulate, cooperate, collaborate, how quickly you can shift gears, change course, navigate territory, be timely. You are called upon to manage space, time, circumstance, others and always your self.
You may often get your butt kicked out there. We will work with the pragmatic fundamental positioning that supports and grows your mobility, ability, virility, safety and vision in the world.
DAY TWO: Sunday, November 17, 12pm-5pm
Our Emphasis will be You,the Yin of You, the more receptive subtle yet powerful Lunar Principal.
The vehicle for this is Practicing in Solitude where the insight is you in relation to yourself and how you intersect with your interpersonal relationships; family, significant other, dear friends.
Practicing in solitude is the birthplace of your continued emergence and the growing ground that spawns the quality and sensibility of the self you take into life. This is where you remember, reorder, reclaim, where you restore, replenish, refine. The sacred space for when things fall apart. Likewise, Its where you kick your own butt, justly study who you are, daily fill your own cup to runneth over so you don’t give from your resources. Lastly, its a wealth of opportunity to simply figure stuff out, tweak your form, work on what you’ve lost, develop what you’ve never had and give yourself what you need, as its all ultimately your job. Your solo practice is yours and is developed by your design. It evolves as you, the seasons, your life and your needs change.
These aspects, just as in the TAO, make up the Whole of You, First Nature, Yin, Second Nature, Yang and their intersecting channel of Your Third Nature, Your Soul. Thrice threaded makes a braid, a trinity of You, eventually as One Taste, Interrelated, Ever Emergent, Complete.
What You Can Expect:
The emphasis and training of Days 1 and 2 through:
- An interactive seasonal informative communal practice
- Led Meditation
- A cohesive breakdown of the Lou Shu 3×3 Magic Square, our primary map, including my own movement meditation
- The significance of number and the geometry each gives birth to especially as it applies to our work together over this Intensive
- A Reading of The Body: The fine art of RePositioning. the pragmatic technicality, imaginative and graceful means and what to do with what you find
- A select number of consensual, discerning, conscious adjustments
- Super Sensability
- Polarity is mediated by Trinity: You always at the apex as the Mediator and what this actually means. We will break this down, learn how to use it ongoing in the body and a simple potent means in everyday life.
- Metaphor: why, what it provides
- I Ching and Tao
- Asana as Oragami
- Explicit/Implicit, Space Time You
- Plenty of time will be made for your questions!
While in Bainbridge, Ivy will be available for private instruction, a reading of the body and provide tools to implement the new positioning in your daily life. There is a signup opportunity at the studio.
