December and the holiday season lies ahead of us; 2016 draws to an end and a new year with new adventures is waiting. The autumn schedule continues until 21/12, followed by a holiday schedule from 22/12 to 31/1. Download your copy of the XMAS and New Year schedule or consult the schedule page.
We start December with the monthly GUIDED CLASS and an END OF SEASON BRUNCH on Sunday 4/12. The Mysore class is cancelled that day. The guided Primary Series starts at 9:30am and is taught in traditional Sanskrit. Everyone is welcome to take part regardless if you’ve completed the series or not. After class I invite you to our annual pot-luck brunch, a great opportunity to socialize off the mat. If you can’t come to class you are welcome to just join the brunch. Bring something (vegetarian/vegan) to share. Family members are also welcome.
BETWEEN X-mas and New Year, we have late morning Mysore classes in Malmö from 9-11.15am. For newcomers to Ashtanga we also offer a special INTENSIVE COURSE for 4 days. Course participants get free access to all Mysore classes throughout January 2017. The course is great Christmas gift for someone you care about! More information here
The last FRIDAY-FUN of the year takes place on 30/12 at 5-7pm in Malmö. The theme of the class is “giving” and participants are encouraged to make a financial contribution in support of the organization V-Care in Mysore, India. The class will be a guided Primary Series and all are welcome to attend but please register in advance here. If you can’t attend but would like to make a donation please email us.
On MOON-DAYS we follow the Ashtanga tradition and take rest. In December the full/new moon falls on 14/12 and 29/12. Read more here.
The next newsletter will be issued in early 2017 and includes information about the spring schedule (Feb to Jun), info on new beginner’s courses in Lund and Malmö, upcoming workshops and summer retreats. I can already announce a weekend workshop in Visby over the May Day holiday 2017 (more info here). Until then I wish you all happy holidays and I hope to share much of this winter with you since I’ll not travel to Mysore this season.
