Introduction to Shadow Yoga

Principles of shadow style hatha yoga are introduced through dynamic preparatory movements known as ‘Dasa Chalana’ (ten churnings) and Jhiva Chala, along with basic stances. This simple yet challenging practice helps free up the joints in the body, releases muscular tension and encourages the proper flow of vital energy. The work has the specific purpose of correcting imbalances in the feet, legs and hips while reducing what is in excess in the body and mind. Students will be taught how to source their power in the feet, trigger it in the legs, control it through the waist, channel it through the spine and express it out the hands.

This course acts as the introduction to and the first stage of entering shadow yoga forms (preludes). A must for all those new to this unique style of hatha yoga, regardless of prior experience, as it forms the basis for the next levels.
