The Laya Krama of the Hatha system is a process of cultivation that facilitates an internal transition into the work of reabsorption through the arts of pranayama, mudra, pratyahara and dharana. The required tools for Laya Krama are Nrtta Sadhana and the Weaving Jade Lady, together with their charanas (warm-ups) and vyapakas (rub-downs).

When practiced correctly, Laya Krama enables one to soar to the heights of dhyana, beyond the limitations of the physical form of the body, without neglecting it.

This course is designed for the student to view – and practice – for an extended period of time until the offered teachings are mastered.
Shadow Yoga was conceived by Sundernath (Shandor Remete) & Emma Balnaves in 2000.

This content is a combination of historical sequences from 2000 with the first video being Yoking the Shadow (Chaya Samyukta) featuring Sundernath & directed by Emma. It offers a history of Shadow Yoga from 2000-2008 through the development of these prelude forms over this time. The content is chaptered so you can choose from where you wish to follow.

Note: These forms are for visual learning and are not led with voice over.

If you are unsure about committing for 12 months or wish to sample the offerings for a shorter period, you may also subscribe on a month-to-month basis.
