Our regular schedule continues to run but due to the Covid19 pandemic we’ve unfortunately had to cancel or postpone extra events such as workshops and guest teacher visits. We are trying to find new dates for late summer and autumn and the goal is to return to full activity and fun events this coming autumn.
One change to the schedule that we’d like to flag is that Mysore class on Thursday evening is replaced by a guided half primary series from 17:15-18:45. Both the Tuesday and Thursday evening class takes place at the shala and is broadcast live in our internal Facebook group
We’d also like to remind you that in May and June there are some public holidays and therefore certain class times change:
FRIDAY 1 MAY – Mysore class cancelled. Charity event 108 sun salutations at 8.30 am in support of the Purple Valley Emergency Response Fund . The class is held at the shala AND is live broadcast on our Facebook page
SUNDAY 3 MAY – Full guided Primary series at 9:00am followed by Tea & talk (in the shala and live on Facebook / Zoom)
THURSDAY 7 MAY – Full Moon – All classes cancelled
FRIDAY 15 MAY – Full guided Primary series at 06:30am
THURSDAY 21 MAY – ASCENSION – Morning Mysore 9-11:30am, evening class cancelled
FRIDAY 22 MAY – new moon – all classes cancelled
FRIDAY 5JUNE – Full Moon – All classes cancelled
SUNDAY 7 JUNE – Full guided Primary series at 9:00am followed by Tea & talk (in the shala and live on Facebook / Zoom)
FRIDAY 19 JUNE – MIDSUMMER’S EVE – closed
SUNDAY 21 JUNE – new moon – all classes cancelled
FRIDAY 26 JUNE – Full guided Primary series at 6:30am
The summer schedule starts on 22/6 until 21/8. During the summer, evening classes are cancelled.
This spring we extend our morning opening hours to give late workers or late sleepers a chance to practice too. As from 15th January our existing students may come for (unassisted) self-practice from 8.45-10.30. It is of course also possible to come and start practicing during the Mysore class and finish during the hours of self-practice. Self-practice means that you do your asana practice but that there is no-one to assist or guide you. Please note that the teacher stops teaching at 8.45 and after this there will be no adjustments. Please also respect that you have to be showered and finished by the latest at 10.30 as there are classes after or the cleaner needs access to the room (N.B. self-practice is only available when Isabella is teaching).

In 2020 we also add more guided classes to the schedule. We’ll do full guided Primary Series class twice a month; once on Fridays and once on Sundays. Take note of all the dates so that you’re not late for class (see picture below or the schedule page – link above). On Fridays you may come already at 6am to meditate or do breathing practice before class; on Sundays we have Tea&Talk after class.
On Tuesday evenings Miho teaches a weekly guided half Primary series at 17.15-18.45. This class suits anyone who wants more guidance of half the series until Navasana. It’s perfect if you’ve just completed a beginners course and/or if you want a better understanding of the correct vinyasa.
December and January are festive months with school and public holidays and many parties happening. We at the shala also organize a couple of social events in December to convey our thanks for the year that has passed, but also to end the year in the sign of giving. During Christmas and New Year holidays we also have special opening hours – see below for all the details.
