Welcome to Ashtanga Yoga Malmö – a yoga school dedicated to sharing the practice of Ashtanga Yoga with origins from Mysore, India. Since 2013 we offer daily Ashtanga yoga Mysore style classes and special foundation/beginner’s courses at a central location in Malmö.
Our school works in partnership with Medborgarskolan and we operate from their premises at Värnhemstorget in Malmö. We also occasionally hold courses and workshops in other locations (in the autumn of 2020 we start teaching at Limhamn on a trial basis). Classes are taught by authorized teacher Isabella Nitschke as well as experienced and qualified assisting teachers. Isabella has the blessing of Sharath Jois to share and teach the primary and intermediate series of Ashtanga Yoga. Read more about all our teaching team here
Ashtanga Yoga is a type of yoga which includes a dynamic physical practice with focus on coordination of breath and movement (vinyasa krama). Through dynamic sequences of yoga postures the practitioner gets to work equally on strength and flexibility with the purpose of creating a stable body and mind. The practice also includes the application of certain moral guidelines in order to reach stillness of mind. Read more about Ashtanga yoga here
We welcome people of all levels of experience and backgrounds; beginners as well as advanced practitioners. Our belief is that yoga should be accessible to everyone and we strive to adapt the practice to the needs of each individual. However, we have an age requirement of 16 years or older and ask for parental approval for members younger than 18. We aim to offer all students a safe space to develop physically and mentally through yoga. Read more about us on the following pages, for more information about our classes please click here.
