2 Hour Workshop - Developing Home Practice with Abbie Galvin



Thursday 18th November 6:00am (Aus time via Zoom)

Your best insights will come from the private internal work of being alone in communion with yourself. It is perhaps the more challenging practice to master, the work of the soul. This workshop is based on Abbie's book on Home Practice which includes three different practices that are tried and true; one to whip you up, one to chill you out and another for longevity. Your home practice is for life. Start small, grow it, nurture it, add your own spin and spice to it, until you have created a haven inside your self, a sanctuary for self-soothing and getting life done. A home practice will become your go-to for all things personal, for making life decisions, for facing whatever challenges come your way and for experiencing life in all of its awesomeness.

A home practice addresses the vision and virtue of personal health, wellbeing and long life. A home practice is a commitment to self-care, a ritualized modus operandi for one’s participation in a technical integration of mind, body and breath. Engaging in a home practice is a way of addressing the manner in which one personally organises one’s self; developing a determined life, setting goals and following through.

Open to all.

Hours bankable to 200hr Katonah Certification.


Katonah Yoga® is a syncretic Hatha yoga practice developed by Nevine Michaan of Katonah Yoga Center 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 practise, 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 a pattern, pattern belies intelligence; by virtue of repetition there is potential for insight. Disciplined techniques are organized for revelation through revolutions.


Abbie Galvin is the owner of The Studio, an NYC based yoga studio, teaching Katonah Yoga. She has been honing this practice for the past 25 years and has a strong student base from all around the world. Abbie's instruction is informed by her own creative process as a filmmaker and from her exploration of the therapeutic process as a psychoanalyst. She has learned over and over that truly participating in any formal process of self-exploration leads to transformation whether it be physical, psychological or intellectual. Her goal is to engage students of yoga in the dialogue between their conscious and their unconscious selves because it is through that effort that we potentiate ourselves. It is her intention as a teacher to cajole each student in that most rigorous effort to be grounded, to grow upwards, and to participate in the creation of their best self.
