Shadow Yoga

Shadow Yoga is a Hatha Yoga School founded by Zhander Remete that places special emphasis on preparatory forms as basis for a safe, meaningful development of students. These preparatory forms, the preludes, integrate principles common to all the internal arts, yoga, martial arts & dance. The sequencing of positions and rhythm of movement and breath are derived from the anatomical and energetic principles of Hatha Yoga and guided by the 108 points of the Indian marmasthana system.

The preludes consist of warrior (viraparampara) and sun forms (surynamaskaras). They are flowing forms that combine strong stance work with spiraling movements, skillful arm-hand gestures and rhythmic breathing. The warrior forms free the body from tensions and blockages. The sun forms ignite the central power system. Three preludes have been devised, differing in type and level of activity:

  1. Balakrama
  2. Chaya Yoddha Sancalanam
  3. Karttikeya Mandala

In the Shadow Yoga practice the preludes are first systematically learned and then practiced for a period of three to seven years. Basic mastery of Balakrama and Chaya Yoddha Sancalanam is prerequisite for working with the Kartikkeya Mandala. Solid grounding in the Karttikeya Mandala is required to proceed with the primary asanas, which lead to the practice of inversions.

Shadow Yoga is taught worldwide by Zhander Remete and Emma Balnaves.  shadowyoga.com.
