About The Teacher
SHADOW fka Alvin Gaines-Molina, is elated to be part of formulating Lunar Release and to be one of its
workshop facilitators. He is excited to bring and shareall his skills, knowledge, and passion to Lunar Retreat's week long programme.
Shadow developed his love for bodily movement through his rigorous dance training, and the interactions between body and mind through his Butoh
performances and yoga practice. His fascination with the body and the mind continued to grow, and in 2013, in an attempt to deepen his practice of yoga, he
completed a 200-hour Teacher Training Certiﬁcation with Awakened Warrior Yoga. He believes that with a dedicated, constant, and "inner"-personal practice,
yoga can help practitioners to live less accelerated lives and be in the moment, thus healing physical and emotional wounds.
Shadow is also a classically trained chef. He brings forth his culinary expertise to Lunar Release as its in-house chef and will lead the culinary workshops.
As he complete his Master Herbalist Certiﬁcation, he hopes to add sessions on Holistic botanical tonics and elixirs to the programme
