course description:

creating a personal practice
Creating a personal practice is essential to maturing one’s skills as a yoga practitioner and is an integral part of studying Shadow Yoga. While persistence and devotion are required, one also needs a flexible, creative set of tools and a solid theoretical understanding to meet one’s changing needs from day-to-day and to realize the inner potentials of yoga.

The once-a-month weekend workshop format will afford the time and space to delve deeply into the practical, philosophical, and energetic basis of the sequencing of the Shadow Yoga Prelude Forms, the “seed” asanas, and primary asana-vinyasas. Students will gain a deeper understanding of how to utilize Shadow Yoga for personal growth, prepare the subtle body for the internal limbs of yoga, and address special therapeutic needs such as women’s and men’s health and recovering from injury or illness.

about in-depth studies
The Shadow Yoga In-Depth Studies course is designed to offer students, both local and out-of-town, an opportunity to learn Shadow Yoga in a methodical way that will support a fruitful home practice. The first year will focus on foundational practices such as the three Prelude Forms, the “seed” asanas, asana-vinyasas, and Ayurvedic self-care.

This course is open to all levels of students. Please note that the second year course will only be available to students who have practiced all three preludes.
