About this trip



In this 50 hour modules students will explore part one of the art of sequencing, Themes of Katonah yoga, body-weight strength training and conditioning for asana practitioners, functional mobility and so much more. Join master teachers Ari Halbert and Selena Garefino. 

Days 1-3 will focus on functional joint mobility, intelligent sequencing anchored in kinesiology and functional anatomy, and advancing your asana. 

Day 4 will be taught by Ari Halbert 

In this day-long module, we will take a deep dive into functional strength training and how it can benefit us in daily life, other sports activities, and in yoga.  With an emphasis on bodyweight resistance/calisthenics, the techniques used here will help to build strength and mobility in equal amounts, which leads to incredible carryover to all other fields of movement.  While most methods of weight training work to build power within a limited range of motion, we will work to build strength across the widest range of motion possible.  This is a great way to bulletproof the body, reducing the risk of injury and increasing overall physical ability. 

During the course of the day, we’ll move fluidly through a concentrated set of exercises and then take the time to dissect each of them one by one.  We will discuss how to safely and effectively incorporate these movement patterns into a yoga practice, and explore how to scale the level of difficulty for students of different levels and abilities.  

Day 5 will also be lead by Ari Halbert

It was a great training as usual Selena delivered. Space we practiced was lovely. Thanks
Such a great experience. I gained so much knowledge and walked away with tools that I can easily apply in my day to day life and practice. Thank you for time, energy and space.
Learned quite a bit and had a great time.
Selena's teaching reaches so far beyond asana - it grabs your heart and elevates your mind. Presence and power is the perfect name for this workshop and her trainings. Selena teaches us how we can show up in this world as our authentic selves. She is giving us the inspiration, the motivation, and the TOOLS to do so. She's learning alongside of us, and that is so powerful. The traditions that Selena teaches move me. They move me closer to Self. They move me to cultivate a life that I am proud of. They move me toward revelations. Thank you Selena.
