"Yoga is designed to remove the excess of habitual living in order to free this energy so that it can be directed towards a higher order of living"–Zhander (Shandor) Remete, Founder of Shadow Yoga

Shadow Yoga is Hatha Yoga that places special emphasis on preparatory forms as basis for a safe, meaningful development of students’ yoga practice.The teachings are based upon the ancient Hatha Yogic texts. During this retreat, students will have have opportunity to learn or review the cornerstones of the Shadow Yoga practice which include warm-ups, the "jiva chalanam," the Shadow Yoga sun salute, and beginning forward bends and seats. Afternoon practice will be restorative. We will also explore Zen practice through zazen, dharma talks, and discussion.
