About Shadow Yoga:
The name Shadow Yoga is derived from the sixth chapter (entitled ‘Yoga of the Shadow Man (Chaya Purusha)’) of the ancient tantrika treatise or writings titled ‘The Shiva-Svarodaya’ (the birth of the breath of life revealed by the god Shiva), which describes how to observe one’s shadow and recognise in it hidden symptoms.
The teaching of the Shadow School is based upon the ancient Hatha Yogic texts which state that ‘all fixed forms should be designed to develop the practice of freestyle’. Freestyle is a necessary step in the cultivation of longevity and enlightenment.
The required tools are the Shadow Yoga prelude forms, Nrtta (pure dance of Shiva), Asana (posture), Pranayama (inner breath control) and the mental practices through the concentrated power of will termed Samyama (even restraint).
