Shadow Yoga & Nṛtta Sādhanā

Shadow Yoga and Nṛtta Sādhanā is the school of Hatha Yoga from Sundarnath (Shandor Remete) and Emma Balnaves. It is the culmination of practice and research to bring to light a true understanding of this discipline to current times. Beginners cultivate their practice through three fixed forms which bring a coherent understanding of Hatha Yoga.

For more information, please visit www.shadowyoga.com.

2018 Schedule

Over the course 2018, we will cover the three Shadow Yoga Preludes and the 8 Palms in a systematic and comprehensive manner. As the year progresses, we will cover an array of leg work and build time in stances, and asanas will be introduced in a timely manner to give space for the practice to take root and grow. In addition we will offer a monthly reading group to survey some of the Hatha Yoga source texts. The Preludes will be taught in two courses, each running 3 to 6 week courses in mornings and evenings, each with a corresponding weekend intensive. 
 
Please keep in mind that the Preludes will be taught in a progressive manner. While beginners can take Sancalanam (or Balakrama) without prior Shadow Yoga experience, those interested in Karttikeya must be comfortable with both Sancalanam and Balakrama. For our Nrtta Sadhana courses, one must be comfortable with Karttikeya and have taken courses with us. Please contact us if you have any questions.
