Intro to Shadow Yoga & Tea

Join Jonny Nobleza & Kelly Marie for a day of nourishment and wisdom. Jonny will offer a 2 hour Intro to Shadow Yoga workshop for those interested in learning about this unique school of Hatha Yoga or wanting to join the upcoming prelude series courses in Berkeley or San Francisco beginning in mid May.

Following his intro, Kelly Marie will offer a fine tea tasting while sharing the history and art of gong fu tea.

Rounding out the workshop activities, we will be hosting a lovely dinner and tea in celebration of Jonny’s birthday! Any additional fruits/tea snacks are welcome. Please inquire if you wish to bring anything. ❤️

Come to any either or both workshops, or just come by for the gathering. We’d love to see you.

Our Offerings

Intro to Shadow Yoga
This workshop will introduce the basic principles and practices of Shadow Yoga including the dynamic preparatory movements of dasa chalana (joint mobilizations), jiva chalana (churning the life force), and uddiyana bandha. Basic standing postures contained in the beginning prelude forms will also be utilized to deepen internal awareness of vital energy in relation to movement, function, and form.

This workshop is a preparation for the Shadow Yoga Preludes.

Open to all levels.
