4-taster sessions on Sundays autumn 2020: 20/9, 18/10, 8/11, 13/12
Next taster session 13/12 – Introduction to Meditation with Miho Hellén-Halme
In the spring of 2021, Ashtanga Yoga Malmö will run a number of immersion courses where participants will have the opportunity to deepen and improve their own practice on several levels such as yoga anatomy and asana understanding. There will also be an opportunity to develop the mental and spiritual aspect of the practice through an introduction to yoga philosophy and thereafter seated meditation.
In the autumn of 2020, we organise four “taster classes” as an introduction to the 2021 immersion classes:
20/9 Introduction to basic asana techniques (practice and adjusting)
18/10 Introduction to Yoga Anatomy
8/11 Introduction to Yoga Philosophy
13/12 Introduction to Meditation
Price: SEK 250 (single class), SEK 800 (all four sessions)
Registration: contact us here (limited number of places)
The taster classes are open to everyone. You can participate in all four or in individual sessions. However, you’ll get the most comprehensive view if you participate in all four. Please note that the taster sessions are not a “quick fix” or a shortcut to learning Ashtanga yoga. Beginners are referred to our foundation courses (1 + 2).
Teachers at the taster sessions are Isabella Nitschke, Sara Björs and Miho Hellén-Halme.
Due to the current Covid19 restrictions the shala we will continue to teach both on site and online for as long as necessary.
All classes – Mysore and guided – take place live at the shala AND are simultaneously streamed via Zoom. This allows for practitioners who live further away and want to avoid public transportation and for those in risk groups to join our classes. To practice with us you need a valid montly/seasonal card OR our special online card which can be purchased for 650 SEK/month (see here). If you have an old “klippkort” that you’d like to use online please contact us.
By purchasing the online card you can participate in all regular Mysore classes and guided classes (full or half primary series) for 30 days. You either purchase the card online through Medborgarskolan or by contacting us. NB! Online cards may only be used for online classes whereas monthly/seasonal cards may be used both in the shala and online. To take part in the special courses or workshops you need to sign up separately and pay extra (not all of these are broadcast online, check in advance).
To join online EVERYONE – whether you have a monthly/seasonal card or an online card has to register weekly to receive the link to log in.
Registration is done as follows :
Mysore (all week) and full primary (Fri / Sun once a month) register at the latest on Saturdays for the coming week (even if you do not attend all days) – email Isabella: info[at]ashtangayogamalmo.se
Since we use zoom, we will see you and be able to give you personalized instruction. Please make sure the following:
- your laptop/tablet video and audio are both set to ‘on’.
- that you are positioned horizontally, not vertically with your mat in the camera view. Also, some of you have the camera too close or high/low so that you aren’t really visible (see graphic below).
- to see the shala click ‘speaker’ view, to see everyone taking part, click ‘gallery’ view.
See you on the yoga mat in the shala or online!
This course will only be held in Swedish. Please visit the Swedish version of our page (change language at the upper right side) to read the course description.
During the summer of 2020 we give you the opportunity to start an inward journey instead of travelling abroad. On three occasions this summer we’ll have introduction classes to Ashtanga Yoga for beginners (15/6, 13/7 and 17/8)
The class gives you an introduction to the basics of Ashtanga yoga and is suitable for those who have never tried yoga before, but also to those who have already practiced other types of yoga and who want to learn the special method of Ashtanga. The focus of the class is on becoming acquainted with one’s own breathing, learning to synchronize breath and movement (so-called vinyasa krama) as well as the practice of Sun Salutation A + B and some closing postures from the Ashtanga Yoga sequence. You will also get a brief insight into the background and philosophy of yoga, its health benefits for both body and mind as well as practical advice on how to get started with a regular practice.
All participants are offered to take part in two weeks of Mysore classes immediately after the introduction – WITHOUT EXTRA COST. Mysore class is the way Ashtanga yoga traditionally is practiced. Read more about the Mysore classes under class descriptions
The teacher is Isabella Nitschke, Authorized Level II by Sharath Jois in Mysore, India
The class is given in partnership with Medborgarskolan. Pre-registration is required and done through Medborgarskolans website (click the link). We have an age limit of 16 years and participants under 18 need the approval of their guardian.
If you have any questions, you are welcome to contact us by email
Our autumn schedule officially starts on 1/9, but some courses begin already at the end of August. Please note that on Sunday 6 September we open our doors to the public for an “OPEN HOUSE” Read more here and invite your friends! Welcome!
This autumn, we’ll have several exciting things going on in addition to the regular Mysore teaching. Among other things, we organise [on trial] a couple of courses at Limhamn together with Gunilla Sandberg (Yoga ashtanga Malmö) – a foundation/beginner’s and a course in Yoga for men. As usual we have our usual beginner’s 1 and 2 courses at Värnhem, and we run taster classes (4 sessions) ahead of an in-depth course that starts in 2021. Our alternative after-work class Friday-fun also returns once a month starting in September. You can find all courses and events by clicking here.
You can see the autumn schedule below and on our schedule page where all information about the teaching can be found. Remember to follow our rules under Covid-19. You can find them here.
