Shadow Yoga Retreat: Kartikeya Mandalam & Full Practice Format

With Dorje Lopön Chandra Easton and Scott Blossom

May 23 - 27, 2019

This retreat provides the time for you to refine your practice of all three Shadow Yoga Preludes forms with a special emphasis on the third form, Kartikeya Mandalam (Garland of Light). This advanced form consists of demanding stance and waist work, removes marma from the chest, shoulders, and neck and prepares the body for the primary seated asanas and inversions.

There will be two practices per day, in the early morning and evening, as well as midday time for study and discussion. To qualify for registration, it is required that you have learned the first two Preludes, Balakrama and Chaya Sanchalanam, and practiced them consistently.
