FALL 2023

Course Registration Page
the first Shadow Yoga prelude

In-person with Mark Horner & Judy Yu

Starts Oct 28, 2023

The Balakrama ("Step to Strength"), is the first Shadow Yoga prelude to be learned.  This dynamic and flowing practice builds the power and functioning of the legs which in turn strengthens the bones, blood, and vital breath.  The Balakrama systematically builds the foundation thus setting the stage for the safe and effective unfolding of the deeper practices of Hatha Yoga.

This course will teach the form in a step by step manner while introducing some new material reflective of the evolution of the Shadow yoga practice.  It is open to all students with some prior yoga experience.  


Full Course:      $200

Four sessions:   $180


Three sessions:  $150

PLEASE NOTE:  Full attendance is strongly encouraged, especially for those students without prior experience learning the Balakrama.  If full attendance is not possible, three or four sessions may be attended for those with prior experience.  Please consult with Mark if you have questions. Space is limited and priority will be given to those who register for the full course.
