In this series, you will be introduced the first of the Shadow Yoga Preludes, called Balakrama (Stepping Into Strength). It is a dynamic bone-strengthening sequence, which actively engages one's center (navel region), hands, feet, and breath. This form removes marma (energetic obstructions) from the legs and pelvis to free the downward flow of prana, detoxify the blood, and strengthen the lungs. Once the Chaya Sanchalam Prelude has been been taught, students will be introduced to the seated work of asana vinyasa.

*Prerequisite: Knowledge of the Shadow Yoga warm-ups dasha chalanam and jiva chalanam.

All Shadow Yoga courses require pre-registration. Consistent attendance is required.

*Drop-in sessions are offered to students who have already completed the same course or prelude. Please email before dropping into a series.

Drop-ins: $25/class
