Shadow Yoga is a specialist approach to Hatha Yoga founded by Shandor Remete. It is based on kneeling, squatting and standing postures that cultivate the inherent energy within the individual which reduce stress, promotes longevity and enlightenment.
Balakrama (Stepping into Strength) is one of the three preludes. Its main purpose is to strengthen the bones. The principle benefit is much more flexible and strong legs which help deepen the breath and get into Asanas without force.

Counsellor and therapist Sharon Turton, who has been most helpful to Richard and many others, will explain Journey Therapy. This modality allows you to access the deepest part of yourself – your source, your soul – and enables it to guide you to uncover the root cause of your physical and emotional issues.
The therapy reveals these issues and sets the process to resolving them, so that your body and mind can undergo their own healing.
Are you a student or teacher of yoga looking to increase your knowledge and deepen your journey? Then it’s time you considered joining Don Peers for a weekend immersion and foundation in Yin yoga.
Comprising a series of poses to create health, deeper awareness and an exploration of breath and meditation, the weekend (12–13 August 2017) will incorporate the Chinese approach of the 14 main meridians, organ function, and the traditional Hatha yoga structure of poses (asana).
For students who regularly practise Yin yoga, this course is an excellent step towards enriching their practice.
