Retreat Details

“The political is personal. The personal is practical.” DJK

We are in a time of visceral intensity. What would it feel like to really meet the moment in total embodied presence whilst also tending to our bigger picture?

In this intimate retreat, we’ll learn how to use the Katonah Yoga practice to potentiate and empower ourselves. For both professionals seeking further experience with the Katonah material (under the guidance of an experienced and deeply loved teacher!), and individuals seeking a higher experience of embodiment, this week will offer a spread of diverse attunement practices in tandem with all the Katonah Classics: Magic Square, Recipes for Joy, Maps, Wraps, Hands-on Adjustments, and the Alchemy of Pranayama.

Through daily Asana, Breathwork + Meditation led by Dages on the ground, astrological explorations with Rita Diamond Casais that will have us looking skyward into Sicilian nights, interwoven writing meditations, delicious local nourishment from the beautiful team at Danena, plenty of open time, and a few other surprises, this hot summer moment offers the opportunity to tune in to what is actually happening now (the “breaking news” inside ourselves), to understand what this “now” has been born of, and how to cultivate longevity-oriented rituals that support where we want to go.

THE LOCATION: Danena Sicily

Our home for the week is a stunningly peaceful 19th century farmhouse — La Masseria — nestled into the wild and elemental landscape of southeastern Sicily. Surrounded by 80 acres of farmland and a short drive from the sea, Danena offers up a generous sense of truly open space. Space gives rise to slowness; two essential ingredients for those seeking a supportive retreat experience. Meals are crafted using sumptuous, organic, Sicilian produce — a generous, energizing brunch by chef Antonio is served after morning practice, and a hearty dinner following afternoon practice + a little time to freshen up. Everything has been grown locally, even the wine is from a nearby vineyard!

• 15+ bankable Katonah hours

• Daily Katonah movement, breath practice + meditation

• Open time + ample space at the peaceful grounds of Danena or exploring nearby beaches and towns like Ortigia, Syracuse + Noto

• Introspective afternoon practices that will span breathwork, writing, and restorative yoga to support assimilation of ideas (as well as food)

• 3 x Group nocturnal astrological seminars

• Beautiful, delicious, languorous, organic + (actually) local farm-to-table Sicilian meals

Due to its last-minute nature, we are able to offer this retreat at a significantly reduced rate.
