  • Shadow Yoga Preludes

  • Individual Practice

  • Special Focus Courses and Workshops

  • Nrtta Sadhana

  • Asana Angahara

  • Practitioner Training


Mark is the founder and director of the first comprehensive Shadow Yoga training program in the SF Bay Area. He started his program in 1997 at Moksha Yoga Shala in Walnut Creek, and then moved it to Berkeley in 2011 when he and his partner, Judy, opened Hatha Yoga Shala East Bay.
