ASHTANGA YOGA SUMMER RETREAT with Isabella at KADERMO CONSCIOUS LIVING

After two previous very successful summer retreats in 2018 and 19, Isabella returns for the third successive year to Kadermo Conscious Living in Finland. At the invitation of Kadermo’s founder and owner Stefan Engström, Isabella will teach a weeklong Ashtanga Yoga retreat 3-10 July 2020. You may come for 2,5 or 7 days (arrival Friday pm or Sunday pm).

Kadermo Ashtanga Yoga Retreat

Kadermo Island is situated a couple of hours from Helsinki and is easy to get to by train directly from the airport. The retreat centre offers a unique opportunity to experience yoga in a peaceful, untouched and idyllic setting. There are no shops or cars and hardly any people on the island. The retreat is set in a protected oak forest area where some of the trees are 500 years old.

Kadermo Ashtanga Yoga retreat is the home of senior Ashtanga Yoga teacher Stefan Engström. He was born on the island and founded the retreat centre in 1994. Since then people from all over the world have been coming together to practice yoga and conscious self-development with Stefan and guest teachers.

Weekly programme
The week includes two daily yoga classes, one in the morning and one in the afternoon. All yoga classes during the week are taught by Isabella Nitschke,  authorised (level2) ashtanga yoga teacher. There are two yoga halls available with plenty of room for both asana and quiet practices.

Upon arrival on the Sunday evening we’ll gather for a welcome and introduction session followed by dinner.

In the mornings there will be Mysore style class for more the more seasoned practitioners and depending on the level of participants there may be the opportunity for more guided teaching. Before morning asana class we practice silence and students may may do their own meditation and breathing practices in the meditation hall.

Afternoon class are held16.00-18.30. This class gives an opportunity for Isabella to help you deepen your understanding of the practice by looking at asana technique, yoga philosophy and chanting. Each class will have a different theme depending on the participants’ needs but will also include some easy pranayama and relaxation techniques. A light dinner is served at 19.00.

The Facilities

Students are accommodated in various places on the island, there is a two-storey summer house on a stunning rocky area overlooking the sea which is 10 mins walk from the yoga shala, there are also rooms the winter house which is closer to the yoga shala. These are built in an old fashioned traditional villa style that was common in the twenties.  All toilets are composting and showers are eco-friendly.

We enjoy vegetarian lunch and dinner cooked by the globally adored resident chef Anu from Anu’s Cafe in Mysore. Herbal teas are available all day. The café is also open straight after morning practice for coffee and smoothies (not included in the price).

NEWSLETTER FEBRUARY 2020

This newsletter hopefully reaches you ahead of Valentine’s Day and we at Ashtanga Yoga Malmö would like to send you some special thought on this particular day. Your trust and dedication means a lot to us as we do our best to create a safe and pleasant environment in the shala where you can always be yourself no matter what.

We would also like to send a reminder that on Friday 14 February there’s a guided Primary Series class at 6.30am. Since the start of the year we have introduced more guided classes and we have extended our morning opening hours with so-called self-practice (unassisted) from 8.45-10.30am. That way, you still have a chance to practice even if you work late hours or don’t hear your alarm on time. Read more about the extended class schedule and opening hours here.

Please also note that in February during w 8, the winter holiday, all our evening classes are cancelled. In February and March, several full/new moons fall on Sundays and we don’t teach then. Don’t forget to double check in order to avoid arriving at the shala unnecessarily. This and other temporary schedule changes are always found on our news page which it is worth visiting regularly.

NEW COURSES – On 2nd March we start our next foundation course in Ashtanga yoga. The course is suitable for people with no prior experience of yoga as well as people who have tried other types of yoga but want to learn the basics of the Ashtanga system thoroughly. More info about the course and how to register can be found here. 

Early March, we also launch a new course in Yin Yoga & Meditation taught by Miho. The course runs on Wednesday evenings and is open to anyone regardless of experience. Our existing members can attend the course through their monthly/season cards. “Klippkort” may also be used as payment BUT everyone must register beforehand via our partner Medborgarskolan. Read more about the course and how to register here

GUEST TEACHERS – This spring we have the opportunity to deepen our knowledge of other aspects of yoga besides the physical practice, as we on two occasions have the honour of welcoming renowned experts in yoga philosophy and chanting. On 7-8 March, Måns Broo, associate professor of religious science at Turku Academy, visits Ashtanga Yoga Malmö to teach a weekend course on the Patanjali Yoga Sutras. Måns is the first to translate the above-mentioned text directly from Sanskrit to Swedish and to study with him is a unique opportunity. During the weekend with Måns, all other classes are cancelled but self-practice will be offered early in the morning before the course. Read more and register here (the course is held in Swedish)

On 8-9 April, we welcome Laksmish Bhat, teacher of Sanskrit, yoga philosophy and mantra chanting at the Sharath Yoga Centre in Mysore. Laskmish will give an introduction to the yoga text Hatha Yoga Pradipika and teach mantra chanting. We also get the opportunity to participate in a traditional Ganesha puja (ceremony). Read more and sign up here. Laksmish’s visit is part of a teaching tour he does in Europe and his visit to Malmö is arranged in collaboration with Astanga Yoga Copenhagen where he will teach before coming to us. If you’d like to participate in Copenhagen too, you find more info via this link.

FRIDAY-FUN – our monthly alternative after-work class returns on 28 February when Miho teaches a class of yin yoga & meditation (read more here). In March, Friday-fun maintains the slower pace with the theme “recovery and mindfulness” – a class taught by Isabella on 20 March. You find all our extra workshops, events with guest teachers and retreats on our event page.

There you’ll also find this year’s YOGA STOPS TRAFFICK, a worldwide charity class for the benefit of the organisation Odanadi. Odanadi works against human trafficking and exploitation of women and children in Mysore and the state of Karnataka, India. This year is the 10th anniversary of YST and our event takes place on 24 March (which is a new moon day and all other classes are cancelled). Ashtanga Yoga Malmö has been involved in YST since the start in 2010 and has participated every year with the exception of one. Read more about the class and the cause here

TIM FELDMANN – lastly, we would like to inform you that the guest workshop with Tim Feldmann, which was scheduled for 21-23 August unfortunately has been postponed until next year. Many of you have asked what happened and it is due to unexpected commitments in Miami that Tim has asked to postpone his visit until August 2021, more specifically to weekend of the 20-22nd. (Tim and Kino have bought a large new ware house to be renovated into a yoga centre opening later tin 2020). The workshop will be posted on the website again, but we won’t take registrations before the second half of 2020.

That’s all for now. We hope everyone manages to avoid any seasonal flu so that we get to see you in class. Please remember that if you do get bedridden for more than two weeks we can pause the card (a note from your doctor is needed though). And don’t forget that you can use your “friskvårdsbidrag” with us. In case you need a special receipt for that please contact our partner Medborgarskolan (Joachim Maathz).

See you on the yoga mat!

NEWSLETTER Nov/Dec 2019

Warm greetings from a sunny Goa where I spend a few extra days after the Purple Valley retreat. It’s kind of a holiday combined with further education as I take the opportunity to attend some workshops with experienced teachers on site. All in order to improve my teaching skills and to get some new energy. I hope you had a great time with Sara and Hanna while they’ve covered classes and I look forward to seeing you all again soon. In this newsletter you find information about upcoming events in December and January as well as the Christmas and New Year’s schedule.

The retreat at Purple Valley was very successful but it would have been even lovlier if more of you had joined. Then the chance of returning there at some point in the future would have increased. When I arrived in Goa I was welcomed by the worst cyclone since many years and the rain was pouring down incessably for four whole days. But just as the guests arrived for the retreat, the clouds scattered. Then we had days filled with sun, yoga and really amazing food. I’ll tell you more on Sunday November 24 when I’m back in Malmö and teach the guided Primary series class followed by tea and talk.

CHARITY CLASS – December marks the month of generosity and of giving back and as we’ve done in previous years we organize a charity class to raise funds for the organization V-Care in Mysore. At the full moon on Thursday 12/12 at 5.30 pm, we do 108 sun salutations together (or how many salutations you can/want to do). The class is free of charge but instead you make a donation that goes directly to V-Care. Read more here and please register in advance.

POTLUCK/CHRISTMAS BRUNCH – our annual, very popular vegan potluck party returns on Sunday 15/12 after guided Primary series class. The brunch is held at the shala from 11-13.00. Bring a festive mood and a vegan/vegetarian contribution to the table and a friend or your family. Please let us know in advance how many of you are coming. You can find more info about the event on this page.

THE AUTUMN SCHEDULE continues until 23/12 and thereafter we’ll have special opening hours between Christmas Eve 24/12 and 6/1. You find the entire Christmas and New Year schedule here

NEW YEAR mini RETREAT– Isabella teaches a mini-retreat with the theme “A fresh start” at Yoga by the Sea in Mölle on January 2-5. All levels of practitioners are welcome. Accommodation and board are not included in the price but can be arranged separately. The last day for registration is mid-December – read more here

GUEST TEACHER – Jens Bache from Astanga Yoga Copenhagen returns to Malmö to teach a guided Primary series class on 5/1. After class, he gives a lecture on his research on an important text about the Ashtanga Yoga found in Mysore, India. Read more about Jens, the class and the lecture here.

THE SPRING’S SCHEDULE starts on 7/1-2020. It will be published online in due time and sent to you with the next newsletter just before the end of the year. Information about new beginners courses is already available online on our Beginners page and our first beginners course starts on 13 January (more info here) If you know someone who wants to fulfill their New Year’s resolution to start a yoga practice then feel free to share the information with them!

That’s all for now. Remember that we are on social media Instagram or Facebook where you can find pictures from Purple Valley and Goa and stay updated on what is happening in the shala between newsletters. On Facebook we also have a closed group Ashtanga Yoga Malmö (and Lund) practitioner’s group for everyone who practices with us regularly where you can ask questions, organize social events and other fun stuff.

Friday-fun: transitions, jumps and arm balance technique

Friday-fun is our alternative monthly after-work special class. We gather to explore asana, play and have fun in a different format than Ashtanga yoga Mysore style. Each month the class has a different theme and this class focuses mainly on the jumps used in the transitions between asanas in the Ashtanga yoga series.

Regular practice of the Ashtanga Primary and Intermediate series helps us to become stronger and more flexible over time, but this takes time and requires a lot of patience. Learning a good technique from the start facilitates your practice and prevents injury.

During this class you will have the opportunity to play with and explore different movements and jumps. We look at a number of techniques to find strength and control while we learn to remain soft. You will learn the basics of the different transitions done between asans in Ashtanga yoga and get special advice for arm balances and handstands. We alternate working in pairs and using the wall.

The class is open to all levels but is not suitable for complete beginners. Participants are asked to come with an open and playful mind!

The class is taught by Hanna Mjöberg, authorised Ashtanga Yoga teacher (II) by Sharath Jois in Mysore.

Places are limited so please pre-register through our partner Medborgarskolan
