The Mentorship in our Words: 


 Mary Dana:

One solid indicator of a good teacher is their ability to see who they are teaching with an open and evolving eye. The world is changing and the yoga world has changed. Teachers need solid technical tools to adapt and receive new information in order to meet the needs of our students and communities.
In this mentorship, we will discover and rediscover methods and theories that challenge us to see clearly with curiosity, humility and empathy.


Seeing is believing and our word is our superpower. Cultivating clear vision and articulation as a teacher is of the utmost importance. When we are able to see the potential in the foible, the archetypal in the personal, the implicit in the explicit, we are better equipped to help meet our students where they are and help them access more space in body, breath, and minds. In this mentorship, you will learn tools and techniques to refine your vision and language.





The Eye of Teacher: An Immersive Mentorship with Mary Dana & Felipe

  • 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.
