EXTENDED SCHEDULE & more guided classes

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).  Click here to see the full spring schedule

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.

Newsletter November 2017

om-pumpkinWe are in the midst of autumn and have just changed the clocks to winter-time again. The darker and colder times can be a challenge, but a regular yoga practice helps generate both motivation and new energy. I look forward to continuously welcome you at the yoga school in Malmö and Lund.

MOON-DAYS – classes continue as usual in November but we follow the Ashtanga tradition and rest on full/new moon days. In the coming month these days fall on 14 and 29 of November. Read about “moon-days”.

The guided class starts at 9:30am and you will be led through the Ashtanga Primary Series in traditional Sanskrit. All are welcome regardless if you practice full primary series or not. Important is that you arrive on time! After the class everyone is invited to join a yoga discussion on the origin and significance of the Sun Salutations. There will also be room for questions about your practice and yoga in everyday life.
