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:
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.

Restorative Yoga is a therapeutic style of yoga which utilizes props to make it easier for the body to get into certain poses, and thus, surrender to the pose. Practicing poses using props provides a completely supportive environment for total relaxation. The more your body is supported in the poses the deeper the sense of relaxation. Relaxation is a state in which there is no movement, no effort, and the brain is quiet. Typically, Restorative poses are sustained for as long as you are comfortable.
Each class will explore the fundamentals of the yoga practice. Emphasis on breathing and stilling the mind will be given. Some yoga experience recommended. Beginners welcome.
