719 Broadway, Santa Monica, California 90401
Join Scott Blossom for an exploration of the foundational practices of Shadow Yoga. Vyayamas, or preparatory practices, involve graceful lunging and squatting movements, breathing, and bandha practices that are designed to reshape and strengthen the joints of the legs by softening tension out of the feet, ankles, knees, hips, and pelvis. Freeing these junctions is critical to preparing us for the path of yoga by healing injuries, opening the «seat of prana» and safely learning to raise and lower the energy of the body. While Vyayamas differ in the various hatha yoga traditions their goal is similar, to balance the flow of prana in our bodies and transform one’s subtle body into a vajra or “diamond” vehicle of embodied wisdom.

Scott Blossom is a Traditional Chinese Medical practitioner, Shadow Yoga teacher and Ayurvedic Consultant. He has been studying yoga since 1990 and teaching since 1997. His primary teachers are Zhander Remete, founder of Shadow Yoga, and Dr. Robert Svoboda, Ayurvedic physician and scholar.
