Spring 2021 Course Schedule
The next eight-week session begins Sunday, March 14, 2021 and runs for eight consecutive weeks. Students with experience in Shadow Yoga may take the prelude course commensurate with their experience. New or experienced students may take a Shadow Yoga Practice Session or a private lesson with Lakshmi to determine appropriate placement.
Prelude courses are held outside at Indigo Yoga in Walnut Creek, CA (weather permitting) or via Zoom, and the Shadow Yoga Practice Sessions are generally held via Zoom. Please contact Lakshmi for details and registration
The three preludes form the basis of the Shadow Yoga system.
The first prelude, the Balakrama (which translates as step to strength) corrects blockages in the feet and lower structure, builds strong, rhythmic breathing, and creates a sense of internal firmness and well-being.
