BE A PART OF THE CHANGE
By committing to doing yoga for 30 days, you are committing to creating CHANGE in your life.
Mindful practices reduce stress.
Yoga reduces tension in the body.
When you feel better mentally and physically, you can make better life choices for yourself and your community.
"The way to happiness is to go into the darkness of yourself. That's the place the seed is nourished, takes its roots and grows up, and becomes ultimately the plant and the flower. You can only go upward by first going downward."

Why Shadow School?
Inspired by one of her teachers, Rob Brezsny, Clara created Shadow School to unearth the darker emotions we experience.
Jungian psychologists believe you must confront your Shadow and bring it to the light to awaken your inner divinity.
Shadow School Yoga Challenge asks that you be open to receiving all parts of yourself; the sticky, uncomfortable, and undesirable.
Shadow School 30-Day Challenge Playlist
You'll move through seven yoga classes that rotate over the month-long event.
Days that alternate between focus/postures, so you don't overdo it.
Part of the Practice with Clara Program with two classes per day to choose from.
We hold you accountable in the Practice with Clara Community Facebook Group.
A faster-paced and fiery class that builds heat and strength in the body. This class includes twists, leg balancing, hip and hamstring opening, and backbends.
A dynamic class with simple transitions that features side waist, hamstring, and hip opening. This class is great for runners and cyclists as it lengthens the leg muscles and chest.
A fluid class with playful transitions. Focus is on the core and back muscles, this class equally strengthens and lengthens the muscles attached to the spine.
A smooth class that stretches the side body, hips, quads, and hip flexors. Open your practice by shaking your arms, legs, and entire body to release stagnancy and physical tension.
A short class that creates space in the shoulders and chest to prepare for deep twists and backbends. The theme of this class is duplicity; what’s living in your heart may be different from what you’re communicating.
A playful class that moves through leg balancing poses such as eagle, half moon, and standing hand-to-foot poses builds strength and tests your balance.
I loved Shadow School and Clara's Lila Flow classes with the themes. When I started, Fear really worked for me; later, Attachment and Maya became my favorites. Rotating the classes for a longer period was also interesting as they changed in their effect on me. Thank you! It was a great journey.

Breakdown of the Classes
In every Practice with Clara event, we ask that you listen to your greatest teacher- YOU!
The Shadow School Yoga Challenge Playlist features seven days of classes to explore an emotion that expresses the shadow.
Over the four weeks, we'll rotate through Fear, Guilt, Grief, Shame, Duplicity, Illusion, and Attachment.
The second class of the day works within the Practice with Clara Program. You can choose to do one, or both, of the class options.
The Practice with Clara Program: Day 1 - Vinyasa, Day 2 - Slow Flow, Day 3 - Hatha, Day 4 - Vinyasa, Day 5 - Restorative, Day 6 - Vinyasa, Day 7 - Meditation.
*We invite you to listen to your body throughout the month. Remember that every pose/variation is an offering; you don’t have to do them. Rest when you need to. Before going deeper into a pose, ask yourself, does this serve where my body and mind are today?

I truly enjoyed this 30-Day Shadow School challenge. I appreciate the authenticity that Clara infuses into all her classes. I liked that we repeated the series of classes throughout the month. I was able to notice something new or feel something different each time. The length of each class was perfect. I feel grateful that I joined and grateful that I made it to my mat every day during the past month. Thank you

This challenge was incredible. The shorter practices made making it to my mat daily attainable and I loved the option to do multiple classes if my schedule/body allowed it. I loved the variety, mixing Hatha/meditation/Nidra into the selection.

Shadow School tackled some difficult topics but Clara made it super accessible and allowed me to observe and integrate those sticky themes in my life in a profound and authentic way. The daily emails felt supportive and encouraging and kept me motivated to keep putting in the work daily, no matter how small. I had so much fun and I'm so grateful for the amazing content and community!
