Tuning the Instrument: Teaching the Therapeutic Private
With Dages Juvelier Keates

October 27 – 29, 2017
Friday, 6:00 PM – 9:00 PM
Saturday & Sunday, 11:00 AM – 6:00 PM

You are a yoga teacher and practitioner.
You have someone who is interested in private yoga sessions with you. What do you do?

A private yoga session is different from a group practice. In a private, you tune your instrument, in a class, you play for the symphony! This workshop is focused on training teachers to work with privates. Learn Katonah techniques to precisely read and adjust your private students. We will cover a basic structure for sequencing and organizing a session to best serve the needs of different types of students. You will gain hands-on experience to gain confidence through applied knowledge.


-  Working with older students

-  Working with injuries and limited mobility

-  Body readings/diagnostics

-  Breakdown of frequently used poses and techniques along with their adjustments/modifications

-  Language: how to open lungs, pump up kidneys, filter livers, modulate temperature, and self-soothe

This training will be small and personal, enabling each participant to get the information that will best support them in empowering others. Specific questions can be emailed to Dages in advance, or feel to bring in your real life examples for mentoring.


Dages has been teaching privates for fifteen years and had time to try to help, make mistakes, learn skills, and refine her techniques. Private yoga sessions constitute the great majority of her teaching, and she has worked with an eclectic swath of New Yorkers during her career, from hedge fund managers to homemakers to hockey players.

Beginning in 2002, her studies have earned her accreditations in both the Bihar and Kundalini lineages. Her syncretic teaching style has been profoundly impacted by immersion in studies with her mentor Nevine Michaan, founder of Katonah Yoga. Recent collaborations include a series of workshops with Elena Brower pairing pranayama and aromatherapy, and retreats and teacher trainings with veteran Katonah teacher Abbie Galvin, Sacred Fig founder Anton Brandt, and SKY TING co-founder Chloe Kernaghan in Bali, Dominican Republic, Greece, and Morocco. 


The cost of the program is $435 (10% discount for SKY TING TT and mentorship grads).
