What Is Shadow Yoga?

Shadow Yoga is a comprehensive system of yogic sadhana (personal practice), created by Shandor Remete and taught by a small network of teachers around the world. Shadow Yoga is progressive and begins with learning fixed sequences called preludes, which build strength and suppleness in the body, rhythm in the breath and focus in the mind. This activity prepares the student for internal practices which are given later. Like other lineage traditions, Shadow Yoga is taught only through direct, personal transmission from teacher to student. The mutual trust and accountability that results facilitates meaningful transformation over time. You can learn more at

Who can do Shadow Yoga?

Anyone is welcome to attend the monthly Introductory Workshop or the Shadow Yoga Basics class. The workshop is a good entry point for those who are curious or interested in learning more, and the drop-in Basics class provides an ongoing opportunity to learn some of the fundamental principles and activities unique to Shadow Yoga. Students who have been exposed to the basic activity will have the opportunity to learn the first prelude, Balakrama.

Where do I start?

Shadow Yoga is a progressive system, and new students should begin with an introductory workshop or the Shadow Yoga Basics class. When the student is ready (a decision between teacher and student) the first prelude, balakrama, is learned. From this point the student works closely with the teacher to determine readiness for other activity. Everything beyond the introductory material is taught in course format, which facilitates progressive learning over time.
