As a yoga practitioner and Portland, Oregon yoga teacher Mandy Kruger is interested in drawing from the ancient teachings and integrating them holistically into Western life in a way that does not contaminate the teachings, nor merely glean from them a spirituality that lacks true inquiry. Please note that the ‘levels’ listed serve as a general guideline, but Mandy creates a practice suitable for all levels–unless of course you are a total beginner, or have injuries.

Shadow Yoga Week Morning Intensive: Churning of the Shadow Warrior

This workshop for those that have taken the Introduction to Shadow Yoga and have some experience with the Balakrama prelude. The Churning of the Shadow, also called Chaya Yoddha Sancalanam opens the pranic force in the body through its spiraling and rhythmic circling movements that increase coordination in the limbs and free up blockages in the waist.

What is Shadow Yoga? Founded by Shandor Remete after many decades of dedicated study and practice.  This Hatha Yoga based system includes three specific forms or ‘preludes’ that work dynamically in circling and spiraling movements, weight bearing on the legs, warrior stances and non-tradition sun salutation forms that more safely and effectively prepare the student for more advanced limbs of Hatha Yoga. Shadow Yoga utilizes rhythmic breathing, bandhas (energetic ties) and marma (vital junctions) to awaken the subtle body, ultimately, for healing and to align with ones purpose.
