Hatha Yoga Demonstrations
Preliminary practices of Shadow Yoga –
demonstrations from designated teachers
By sharing these stances and shapes demonstrated in these videos for demonstration purposes only.
There is no intent to use these videos for educational or guidance purposes – meaning the teacher who wishes to teach others these shapes is prohibited under the teacher’s understanding and oath that ‘one can not show another for which it does not live within them fully and clearly’. The choice to show others these fundamental preliminary sequences will lead to misunderstandings, misuse, risk of injury and unknown consequences to the student and the teacher, for which the teacher is responsible. The one practicing must understand the hidden patterns within these shapes, and the mind of the practitioner must submit itself to the wisdom of the body therefore not imposing on the body, harming it and forcing it that leads to consequences preventable by knowing one’s limits. Caution is given and anyone directly associated with this organization, website development or associations to this organization are not held responsible or liable to the one who chooses to practice without the proper guidance and support. Thank you for your consideration and understanding.
