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.
Prerequisites: Completion of Intro to Shadow Yoga course/s: Knowledge of the Shadow Yoga warm-ups, called dasha chalanam and jiva chalanam .

Link to Intro course at ATS starting April 25th:


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 [email protected] before dropping into a series.
