Believe it or not, we’re already half way through the autumn semester. The first round of beginners’ courses is about to “graduate” and two groups of new ashtangis are ready to fly. We’d like to welcome all the new students to our Mysore classes and flag our “Ashtanga Yoga Malmö/Lund Practitioner’s group” on FB. There you can ask questions, share experiences, give advice and get internal shala news (click the link above to join). This newsletter contains important info for October+November such as temporary schedule changes, new courses and events as well as some practical things in the shala.

NEW ENTRANCE IN MALMÖ – please note that the shala in Malmö hereafter is accessed via the door at Grangatan 2 (around the corner). The old door code is still valid but needs to be entered twice; first at the main entrance and then at the glass door inside the hallway. You find the [small] keypad on the wall just next to the door.

TEMPORARY SCHEDULE CHANGES – our regular schedule continues until 21/12, after which we’ll have a special Christmas&New Year schedule for a few weeks. Please note that between 11-31 October, Isabella is in India to participate at a Yatra in the Himalayas with R. Sharath Jois and Eddie Stern. In her absence cover teachers will keep the schedule running. A detailed schedule for the period can be found here

GUIDED PRIMARY SERIES – takes place on the first Sunday each month (the Mysore class is cancelled those days). Upcoming dates are 7/10 and 4/11 at 9:00 in Malmö. The class is open to all, but it’s not suitable for beginners. After class, we meet for tea & talk where we discuss a yoga-related theme. On 7/10 we talk about “A Sustainable Yoga Practice” and on 4/11, Isabella shares stories from her trip to the Himalayas.
Those who do not feel ready for full guided primary series are welcome to the Beginner’s level 2 class (guided up to half primary series) that takes place every Sunday at 11:30 in Malmö.

NEW BEGINNERS COURSES – start in Malmö in November shortly after the autumn holidays. Isabella teaches the course on Monday evenings starting 5/11 and Sara teaches the Saturday morning course starting 10/11. All upcoming courses are available here

FRIDAY-FUN – our alternative after-work class returns on 9/11 at 17:00 in Malmö with the theme “Back to Basics: Jump back, jump through”. It will be a challenging class but as always we’ll have great fun! Sign up now to secure your spot!

WORKSHOPS in other cities – in November, Isabella is invited to teach special weekend workshops at USYoga in Borås and Mpiyo in Helsingborg. Why not join or share with friends in the area who might be interested?

SAVE THE DATE – for our annual vegan potluck brunch on Sunday 2nd December. This is one of our favourite events of the year and not to miss! Read more on the events page and mark your calendars!

Our next newsletter will be published at the end of November. It’ll contain more info about social events at the shala in December/January as well as the schedule for Christmas and New Year. In the meantime, stay up to date with daily news by following us on Instagram and Facebook, or visit this news page/blog regularly.

See you on the yoga mat!
