FRIDAY-FUN special class: “Back bend basics”

Tag: Intermediate series

FRIDAY-FUN special class: “Back bend basics”

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 time we explore how to back bend.

Bending back really means to stretch both the front and the back of your body. In daily life we sit a lot, drop the shoulders, and bend forward rounding our backs. The front of the body is compressed which limits our ability to breathe properly. Our core muscles weaken and our spine is adversely affected – which results in poor posture, back pain and difficult deep breathing.

In the primary and especially the intermediate series of Ashtanga Yoga, the practitioner is introduced to several back bends that “open” (soften and strengthen) both the shoulders, the chest and hip-flexor muscles. Regular practice of these two series makes our body more balanced. The muscles of the torso and legs are strengthened and stretched and we create better support for a healthy spine and gets easier to breathe.

This class gives you the opportunity to deepen your understanding of the mechanisms involved in back bending and teaches you techniques to help soften and strengthen the body in order to safely backbend. In a playful manner, we explore a number of back bending asanas in this efficiently choreographed vinyasa style class. We go through basic techniques for positions from Urdhva Dhanurasana (wheel) to more advanced backbends from the Intermediate (and maybe advanced) series of Ashtanga yoga.

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 Isabella Nitschke, authorised Ashtanga Yoga teacher (II) by Sharath Jois in Mysore. Places are limited so please pre-register via our partner Medborgarskolan (click to register)

FRIDAY-FUN special class: “Twists & Core”

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 time we’ll explore mobility and strength of the spine and core.

A strong yet flexible core is key in many yoga postures but also important for a healthy posture and to proper breathing. Through regular practice of the Primary and Intermediate series of Ashtanga yoga you learn to gradually strengthen the deeper layers of your core muscles and at the same time increase the ability of the body to twist. Twisting postures are important for the maintenance of a healthy spine as well as the stimulation of internal organs for proper digestion.

In this class we’ll focus on techniques to increase both strength and flexibility of the core. In a specially choreographed (and fun!) vinyasa style class, we play with and explore a range of asanas from basic to more advanced level. We’ll explore the dynamics of twisting and how to do everything from basic to more intermediate twists in a healthy and safe manner.

The class is taught by Isabella Nitschke, authorised Ashtanga Yoga teacher (level II) by Sharath Jois in Mysore. The class is open to all levels of yoga practitioners but NOT suitable for complete beginners.

Places are limited so please pre-register through our partner Medborgarskolan (click to register)

FRIDAY-FUN special class: “Happy hips”

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. First our this autumn is focus on the hip and pelvic region.

Lotus Posture, legs behind the head and other asanas (postures) in the primary and intermediate series of Ashtanga Yoga require relatively mobile hips. Today’s lifestyle with plenty of sitting on chairs or activities such as running/cycling often leads to stiffness in the hip-region/pelvis, legs and lower back. Additionally,  negative stress and emotions also have an impact on muscles in the hip area. Regular practice of the Ashtanga yoga primary and intermediate series over time helps free such tension stored in the hips and legs.

This class gives you the opportunity to further your understanding of the hip-region in order to understand and deepen your regular yoga practice. You will be taught techniques to safely soften and strengthen the muscles in the pelvis, legs and lower part of the torso. Through a specially choreographed (and fun!) vinyasa style class, we play with and explore a range of asanas from basic to more advanced level.  You will learn techniques of how to move towards lotus posture (Padmasana), how to approach putting your feet behind your head (Eka Pada Sirsasana) and more. 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 Isabella Nitschke, authorised Ashtanga Yoga teacher (II) by Sharath Jois in Mysore.

NEWSLETTER SUMMER 2019

Dear Yogis,

We’re in the month of June with graduations, school holidays and vacations on the door step. There’s still hope that the summer will be as wonderful as last year, but even if it doesn’t turn out that way, we’ll still enjoy the extra light and continue our yoga practice as usual. The spring schedule runs until 30th June after which a summer schedule will be in place for a month (1 July-3 August). The first two weeks in July we have the pleasure of welcoming Karolina Zakrzewska from Goa/Helsingborg as a cover teacher. The second half of July doors are open for self-practice without assistance. The shala is then open (free of charge) to all our existing students who wish to use the studio to practice. Read more about Karolina here and download your own copy of the SUMMER SCHEDULE 2019.

Summer also brings with it a number of changes for our yoga school. After having gone back and forth between Lund and Malmö for 6 years with classes spread out over several different locations, I (Isabella) have decided that it is time to gather everything in one place. As of 1st July, all classes move to the shala at Värnhem in Malmö. We will then officially be known as “Ashtanga Yoga Malmö” with classes running 6 days a week there. On the summer schedule, the evening classes are cancelled but they will return again in August.

I’d like to take the opportunity to thank all students who have come to both the Lund and Malmö shalas throughout the years – without you none of what we’ve built would have been possible. It is because of you that the shala has grown and continues to flourish. When I returned to Sweden 7 years ago it was with the dream of esablishing a shala in Malmö. Although we’ve been stationed here since 2013 it is not until now that the dream of one place becomes real. I’m deeply grateful to you all and humbled that you choose to come and practice in our space. I of course hope that students from Lund will make the short journey to Malmö and not give up their practice for a 15 minute commute. Please know that you are all always very welcome. With the shala being in one single place I hope to create an even more welcoming and grounding atmosphere, with less confusion about our whereabouts and less stress from being scattered all over the place.

The move to Malmö also involves some practical changes. We don’t just change our name, but the website will also move to a new domain during the summer; our accounts/pages on FB and IG change their name, our logo is slightly altered AND we get a new email address. We aim to make the transition as smooth as possible but ask for your understanding and patience in case there are some technical glitches on the way. Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.

Aside from our relocation there’s a lot of other exciting stuff happening this summer (don’t forget to check the news-page for temporary schedule changes):

GUIDED INTERMEDIATE – on 16th June, Isabella teaches a special guided class where we explore the traditional vinyasa count of the second series in Ashtanga yoga. Read more about the class here and what is required to participate.

SUMMER-RETREAT – from 7-12 July, we return to Kadermo Conscious Living in Finland where Isabella also taught a retreat last summer. The island of Kadermo is an idyllic place where one can really relax and disconnect from civilization. We practice yoga morning and evening, enjoying the sauna, swimming, nature and good vegetarian food. Don’t hesitate to book, you won’t regret it!

SHARATH JOIS EUROPEAN TOUR – In July, our teacher Sharathji visits Europe again and comes to Stockholm and Copenhagen to teach one week in each city. To practice with him on tour is usually a great opportunity to get an insight into the Ashtanga yoga tradition and to meet yogis from all over the world. Read more about how to book in each city here.

OPEN HOUSE – on the 25th of August we open the shala doors to the public, family and friends. Everyone is invited to come to visit, try free classes, learn more about yoga, ask questions and mingle with us at the yoga school. There will be snacks and special offers for both new and existing members. The event is already published on our website, check it out there! More info will also come with the next newsletter.

A SNEAK PEAK AT AUTUMN – our autumn schedule starts on the 4th of August, new beginner’s courses are planned for September, “Friday-fun” classes (asana-based) will return, chanting on Sundays is back etc. and Isabella teaches a yoga retreat at Purple Valley in Goa, India. The autumn schedule will be online sometime in July so keep your eyes open. Come September, Isabella will also teach a special immersion of the Ashtanga Yoga Primary series; a course where participants learn how to adjust yoga asana, to deepen their understanding of the function of the individual postures as well as the purpose of the sequence. Read more about the course and requirements for registration here.

The next newsletter will be published in July. It’ll contain more info about the autumn and everything that happens then. In the meantime, we hope that stay up to date by visiting our news site/blog and that you follow us on social media

Have a great summer!

See you on the yoga mat!

Yoga changes your life. Are you ready?

Photo: Sophie Håkansson photography

”Yoga ruins your life” is a catch phrase often used as a joke or an attempt to, as I see it, draw attention to the practice. But it doesn’t really ruin your life – does it? A regular practice will bring change, that’s for sure. And since we in general are scared of or reluctant to change, it may feel as if yoga then ruins things when the results of our practice don’t live up to our expectations that yoga is supposed to make us feel better, happier and more balanced in life.  The image that yoga will suddenly make us see life through rose tinted glasses is just as much a cliché as the phrase that yoga ruins your life.

We all come to yoga for different reasons; none is more valid than the other. It is easy though to start blaming yoga when things don’t turn out as we expect or when we start doubting the practice for various reasons. Yoga philosophy therefore talks about the importance of taking action without expectation or attachment to the fruits of ones actions. Also, yoga doesn’t do anything to you, nor does it expect or demand anything from you. The only one doing, demanding or expecting anything in or of your practice is you. Again, according to yoga philosophy any action you take will lead to a reaction (consequence) that will come back to you at some point (in this life or another) – that is the law of karma.

The practice of yoga gives us the tools to begin to see our behavioural and thought patterns that keep us in this karmic wheel of action and reaction. Yoga will sooner or later force us to face the uncomfortable truths we’ve shovelled under the carpet, that can no longer be avoided in order for us to develop and move on. That’s why oftentimes, before something can get better we need to learn to deal with the difficult parts first. Change can therefore be painful to start with and thus we avoid it. Instead we remain caught in the pursuit of finding and reliving what we qualify as pleasurable experiences and avoid those that we experience as painful.

A regular yoga practice has the potential to change things, some immediately for the better and some maybe not as discussed above. When we start practicing, we begin with the third and fourth limbs of Ashtanga yoga: asana (postures) and pranayama (breathing). When we start to move and breathe more consciously it will initiate physical changes. Richard Freeman who made a little video a few years back with the theme “Yoga ruins your life” jokes about how ones feet grow wider and bigger so that all the fancy shoes in ones closet need to be replaced (no more high heels or pointed toes there… what a disaster!!!).  Jokes aside, not only will our feet change over time, but with a regular, mindful practice we’re likely to grow stronger, more flexible, have a better posture and be healthier overall.

After a certain amount of time we might also notice how we gradually become more present, aware and focused. Beginning with the body and the breath we come to the now instead of always being in our head day dreaming of the past or future. Through the physical practice we connect with our inner world and learn to observe the twists and turns of our mind. This heightened presence makes more aware of our thought patterns, behaviours and our choices in life. We might start to behave differently towards ourselves and others, hopefully more in a more kind and thoughtful manner as we start to reflect upon and observe the yamas and niyamas (first and second limbs of Ashtanga yoga).

The changes that come with practice may be welcome but sometimes also frightening. Doing physical asana may be scary when we start opening our bodies or go upside down and see the world from a different perspective.  As we go deeper into the practice and begin to peel off layers of old conditioning, habits and behavioural/thought patterns,  our bodies and minds can react in unexpected ways with pain, tiredness, anger, joy and all kind of emotions. When we let go of things we’ve held on to (consciously or unconsciously) energy is freed within us and we come closer to our true nature beyond all the stories and roles we’ve created and identify us with. But letting go of the identity we’ve created through our storytelling is hard and our nature is to hold on to the known rather than surrendering to the unknown.

Changes may be difficult to handle and letting go is a challenge even if we might be prepared as we have chosen to be on this yoga path. But for people around us – family members, spouses, partners, friends, colleagues etc who have not chosen our path or our change, it may be a surprise that’s not always met with open arms. Suddenly we’re no longer that person they’ve always known us as. Although our lifestyle, behaviour and choices may have taken a turn for the better it may be hard for them to accept. They might think you’re behaving strangely when your priorities change and you start getting up early to do practice (and also going to bed early), maybe changing your diet to include less animal products, drinking less alcohol and thus becoming more focused (all behaviours that may go against the socially accepted ones in society) etc. Because others have not experienced the transformation of the practice themselves they might find it difficult to accept the new you. This can create conflict within in our relationships and within us. We’ll start to question ourselves – Am I doing the right thing? Who am I really? Maybe they are right – the practice isn’t good for me. Maybe I should quit doing these weird shapes on the yoga mat –and so on.

A personal anecdote on this is a story from my second or third trip to Mysore many years ago. There was a group of six or seven girls getting together for a chat ant chai on a roof top one afternoon. We talked about life, yoga of course as one often does in Mysore and relationships. It turned out all of us were single at the time, and more interestingly that we’d all experienced a break up from a long term relationship at about the time we were taught Kapotasana, an intense back bend in the Intermediate series of Ashtanga yoga. Now does that mean that Kapotasana is the “break-up” posture? Of course not – it could all just have been a coincidence. Maybe each of our relationships would have ended anyway as people oftentimes grow apart or develop in different directions. That said, the practice does, as discussed above, further physical and emotional changes within us that may contribute to changes in our overall lives. Kapotasana is a particularly challenging posture that potentially brings up a lot of stored emotions, as does the Intermediate series per se when it stimulates our central nervous system. Furthermore, according to my teacher Sharath Jois, doing too much asana practice (twice a day or too many asanas too quickly) may also cause aggression in an individual (probably because it brings too much yang – that’s my interpretation at least).

Every yoga journey is different and we all face different challenges depending on our background and current circumstances. Some of us are fully supported by our social networks others not. Important is to be aware of potential obstacles on the path, either generated by the games played by our own minds or by external actors. How do we deal with these factors? How do we stay true to ourselves and our path and how can we avoid losing ourselves in the stories created by our mind (and egos) in reaction to others’ opinions or external situations? How can we maintain an inner and outer balance?

Yoga philosophy gives us the tools of yama and niyama, in particular “ahimsa” – the absence of harm and “satya” – truthfulness which apply both to our behaviour towards ourselves and others. Trying to observe these principles is a process of trial and error that we have to go through in order to learn and grow.  Practice is built on Kriya yoga – yoga of action; Tapas (discipline and patience of a regular practice), Svadhyaya (study and inquiry) and Isvara Pranidhana (surrender, trust in the unknown and the process). On the path of our practice (our sadhana) we may experience pain (physical, emotional, psychological), resistance, doubt, desire aversion and other feelings. By meeting these sensations but with open eyes, curiosity, humility and patience and ideally under the guidance of an experienced teacher we can learn to see beyond them. Without the support of a teacher who has also walked the walk, it might be confusing and difficult to handle the sensations that may arise along your yoga path. Yoga won’t ruin your life; instead it has the potential to enrich, make you stronger, more present, and balanced and free you from being a slave to your impulses, desires, aversions and delusions. Yoga is a journey of continuous learning where “change is the only constant”. Every day is a new beginning, every practice on the mat is a new start every breath is a new birth.
