It was in early 2000 that Shadow Yoga was conceived by Sundernath (Shandor Remete) & Emma Balnaves. Since then we have established an international community of teachers.
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.
Shadow Yoga developed from this early stage and other prelude forms were introduced.
This is a one year subscription and 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.
These forms are for visual learning and are not led with voice over.
You will have access to streaming of the following Shadow Yoga prelude forms
• Revised Prelude Forms & Nata Yoga
• Preludes Forms with Shandor Remete & Emma Balnaves
• Chaya Vivaranam with Shandor Remete
• Balakrama with Emma Balnaves
• Yoking the Shadow

Shadow Yoga is concerned with the social and environmental impacts of industry and the marginalisation of various groups. We have pledged 1% of sales to help fund diverse grassroots organizations and appreciate the support of our community.
In 2002, Yvon Chouinard, founder of Patagonia, and Craig Mathews, founder of Blue Ribbon Flies, created 1% for the Planet and started a global movement. “The intent of 1% for the Planet is to help fund these diverse environmental organizations so that collectively they can be a more powerful source in solving the world’s problems.”
