Shadow yoga was developed by Shandor Remete. It incorporates various traditional aspects of the popular Hatha yoga, including the meditation aspects, asanas, mudras, and more. To practice Shadow yoga, one must be barefoot and not use a mat. Also, Shadow yoga highlights the need to learn three prelude forms that are made up of dynamic activities,meant to prepare the body for the practice. The preludes are: Stepping into Strength, Churning of the Shadow Warrior, and Garland of Light. Book yourself a spot on a Shadow yoga retreat and deepen your practice!
Strength training has been proven to prevent diseases and degenerative conditions, increase energy, decrease anxiety, increase bone density, build a strong heart, and reduce blood pressure. Typically, when you talk about sculpting the body, you think about HIIT circuits and the weight room. And yoga is, wrongly known, only as a good option for warm-up, stretching, and never seems to be considered a workout.
It’s no secret that we live in perhaps the most stressful times there ever were. Even if our material comfort is perhaps greater (for those of us privileged enough), the daily grind takes a higher and higher mental toll. Only the levels of information we absorb daily are a huge and incredible source of mental strain, never mind the emotional pressure.
Stress, and its physical symptoms, affects 77% of the population as reported by the American Institute of Stress. Over 90% of doctor visits can be traced back to stress in some way from poor digestion, disrupted sleep, increase heart attack/stroke risks, compromises our immune system, increase in anxiety symptoms and more.
