Yoga workshop with guest teacher Matt Ryan 27-30 Dec 2021(tentative dates )

Twice in the past year we’ve (sadly) had to postpone  Matt’s visit to Malmö due to the Covid-19 pandemic. We have now agreed on the new (tentative) dates of 27-30th December for his workshop here. Ashtanga Yoga Malmö is very honoured and happy to welcome Matt Ryan to our shala and we look forward to him sharing his long term experience of Ashtanga yoga and Zen Buddhism with us.  Matt will teach Mysore style classes in the mornings followed by afternoon workshops with including both Zen meditation and asana practice. The full programme with exact dates and timings will be announced below soon.

About Matt

Matt Ryan, originally from Manchester, has been practicing and teaching Ashtanga Yoga for over 20 years. In addition to having his own shala in Manchester for many years he has taught yoga around the world, most lately in the Venice Beach area of Los Angeles, California. In 2020 he returned to the UK where he is now settling in Margate. Matt is married to Lina from Lund, and thus has links to Sweden which he frequently visits to see family and friends.

10 years ago Matt started studying Zen Buddhism which foundations lie in the daily sitting practice of Zazen. When he added Zazen to his Ashtanga practice he noticed an immediate effect resulting in a steadier more focused mind whilst moving through the asana sequences – the end result being a sense of in the moment presence coupled with a strong flexible mind & body. In addition to his experiences from the Ashtanga Yoga practice he will give an introduction to Zazen during his workshop in Malmö.

Matt, although he has studied the Ashtanga practice in Mysore, prefers to keep his teachings completely secular. For more information about Matt visit his website https://mattryan.yoga/about/

Ashtanga yoga foundation/beginner’s course

Beginner’s/Foundation courses cover the basics of Ashtanga yoga and are suitable for complete beginners as well as those who practice other types of yoga but would like to learn Ashtanga thoroughly from scratch. The course runs for 8 weeks and starts on Monday 6 September 2021 at 17:15 and is taught by Isabella Nitschke authorized by Sharath Jois in Mysore, India.

We focus in particular on linking breath and movement in the so called vinyasa krama system. We also cover Bandhas (energy locks in the body) and Drishti (focus). Most importantly, you will learn how to practice and move safely to avoid injury and to build both strength and flexibility over time.

ASHTANGA YOGA SUMMER RETREAT at KADERMO CONSCIOUS LIVING

In August 2021, we will finally return to Kadermo Conscious Living near Hanko, Finland. Isabella has previously taught two summer retreats at Kadermo, but in 2020 we had to take a break due to the Covid19 pandemic. On 1-8 August, 2021, Isabella will teach an Ashtanga yoga retreat open to all levels of practitioners. You may join for the whole week (1-8 Aug), five days (1-6 Aug) or a weekend (6-8 Aug). Welcome!

Kadermo Ashtanga Yoga Retreat

Kadermo Island is situated a couple of hours from Helsinki and is easy to get to by train directly from the airport. The retreat centre offers a unique opportunity to experience yoga in a peaceful, untouched and idyllic setting. There are no shops or cars and hardly any people on the island. The retreat is set in a protected oak forest area where some of the trees are 500 years old.

Kadermo Ashtanga Yoga retreat is the home of senior Ashtanga Yoga teacher Stefan Engström. He was born on the island and founded the retreat centre in 1994. Since then people from all over the world have been coming together to practice yoga and conscious self-development with Stefan and guest teachers.

Weekly programme
The week includes two daily yoga classes, one in the morning and one in the afternoon. There are two yoga halls available with plenty of room for both asana and quiet practices.All yoga classes during the week are taught by Isabella Nitschke,  authorised (level2) ashtanga yoga teacher by Sharath Jois.

Upon arrival on the Sunday evening we’ll gather for a welcome and introduction session followed by dinner.

In the mornings there’s Mysore style class for all practitioners but depending on the level of participants there may be the opportunity for more guided teaching for beginners. Before morning asana class we practice silence and students may may do their own meditation and breathing practices in the meditation hall.

Afternoon classes are held16.00-18.30. This class gives an opportunity for Isabella to help you deepen your understanding of the practice by looking at asana and breathing technique, yoga philosophy and chanting. Each class will have a different theme depending on the participants’ needs and will include some easy pranayama and relaxation techniques. A light dinner is served at 19.00.

The Facilities

Students are accommodated in various houses on the island. There is a two-storey summer house on a stunning rocky area overlooking the sea 10 mins walk from the yoga shala. Other rooms are at the winter house an old fashioned traditional villa style that was common in the 1920’s.  All toilets are composting and showers are eco-friendly.

We enjoy daily vegetarian lunch and dinner. Herbal teas are available all day. The café is also open straight after morning practice for coffee and smoothies (not included in the price). After lunch you have free time to explore the surroundings, walk, swim, go canoeing, read a great variety of yoga books from the library or enjoy the Finnish sauna.

Booking

All reservations and payments are done through Stefan at Kadermo Conscious Living by email Stefan@Kadermo.fi . The number of participants is limited in order to give everyone a personal and special experience of their time on the island. The retreat centre retreats all summer long and there are discount options for those wanting to stay more than one week. For more information and details about the summer programme please visit the Kadermo Conscious Living website. For questions about the yoga classes or your practice please email Isabella.

We look forward to welcoming you this summer!

NEWSLETTER X-MAS & NEW YEAR 2020/21

Dear yoga friends,

2020 unfortunately didn’t turn out to be the glorious year we’d hoped for; instead it presented us with many challenges and hard times. In order to maintain some sense of normalcy, we decided early on in the pandemic to keep our shala open as a place of peace, recovery and sanity for all our members who needed/wanted to continue to come to class. Keeping our doors open has been a balancing act in safeguarding everyone’s continued mental and physical health and at the same time preventing further spread of Covid-19. It’s only thanks to good teamwork and that you’ve all carefully complied with our precautionary measures, that we’ve managed it so far.

With this newsletter, we want to thank you all for your cooperation,  commitment and support. Together we made it through 2020 and now we approach 2021 with fresh hope and optimism. We’d love to keep seeing you on the yoga mat, either live at the shala or via the screen in our virtual Mysore room.  Below you find information about how we kick out 2020 and welcome 2021 at the shala. The newsletter contains our opening hours and special classes/workshops during the Christmas and New Year holidays as well as a taste of what awaits in January and the spring of 2021.

CHRISTMAS & NEW YEAR’S SCHEDULE

From 24/12 to 3/1, a Christmas & New Year schedule applies with regular Mysore classes and some special workshops. Several of the classes are also available online. Unfortunately, Corona forced us to postpone Matt Ryan’s guest workshop until June 2021, but instead we have added some extra events for everyone who stays at home during the holidays. An overview of the schedule is available here.

27/12: WORKSHOP “BREATH & BANDHA“, 12-14:00 – learn how the breath and body locks can affect your yoga practice (and life in general). Read more and sign up here

28/12: BEGINNERS INTRO class, at 17:15. Isabella gives a quick overview of the Ashtanga yoga basic principles, breathing technique and sun salutations. Following the session, participants have the opportunity to attend any number of Mysore classes for two weeks at no extra cost. A perfect Christmas present for a friend or someone you love. Read more and register here (NOTE! Another introductory class takes place on 10/1-2021)

30/12: 108 SUN SALUTATIONS – charity class, at 17.15 (also online). We end the year in the spirit of giving and traditionally do 108 sun salutations in support of V-Care in Mysore, India. This small charity, which we support  since many years, primarily helps children and young people from the most vulnerable groups in India to get an education and the opportunity to have a better future. Our contribution is even more important in times of lockdown, closed schools and difficulties in earning a living for the poorest in India. Read more about the event and how you can contribute here

– 31/12 NEW YEAR’S YOGA – last class of the year (!). At 9-10:30 Isabella leads a guided Primary series class. Come and end the year of 2020 in the best way and let us together  bring a positive energy into 2021. The class is also broadcast online.

THE SPRING SCHEDULE starts on 4/1-2021 with regular morning Mysore classes. Our evening courses start in week 3 + 4. As a result of Covid-19, we are extending our online teaching for as long as necessary. All Mysore classes are broadcast live via Zoom and several of our extra courses also offer the opportunity for online participation. To participate, a monthly/season card or an online membership is required. In 2021, we also open up for customers with old “klippkort” to use these for online practice (only previously purchased cards). Contact us for more information.

That’s all for now; thank you once again for your participation and commitment during the past year. Our yoga community is very valuable to us and we hope that soon again we’ll be able to organize social gatherings and events where we can meet off the yoga mat. We hope for example to hold our annual Christmas potluck brunch in spring time instead. Take care of yourselves, stay healthy and have a lovely holiday season no matter how you celebrate it this year. If you feel lonely, the shala is open most days and you can come find company there even if we keep distance between the yoga mats.

Your health and safety is of utmost importance yo us. In order to stop/limit the spread of Covid-19 and other seasonal flu we follow guidelines issued by Folkhälsomyndigheten. Our shala remains open for practice until further notice but we kindly ask you to be extra careful and practice saucha/cleanliness (and common sense) when you come to class! We on our side make sure the premises are being cleaned more often and that surfaces that are being touched by many, such as door handles, are sanitized regularly. We also abstain from physical adjustments until the situation has calmed down again.

We kindly ask you not to come to the shala if you’re sick or even if you have any mild symptoms of flu (or if you have a family member/member of your household who is unwell). If you belong to a risk group and don’t want to come to the shala we offer Mysore and some of out other classes via Zoom.  Please contact us should you wish to practice with us online.

Please respect follow the following guidelines when you come to the shala:

– Shower/wash before you come to practice

– Wash your hands frequently. Use hand sanitizer (available at the shala)

– Avoid touching your face, nose, eyes

– Bring YOUR OWN yoga mat and props, avoid using the “rental” mats, blankets or other accessories that belong to the shala

– Bring a sweat towel

– Take your mat home and clean it. In case you keep it at the shala clean it extra well (we provide mat cleanser).

– Wash your practice clothes and mat towel after each practice

– Don’t leave rugs or mat towels at the shala. Take home and wash!

– Keep extra space between the mats – at least 1 meter

– Be ok with not receiving any physical adjustments

– Please take a consent card before you start your practice. GREEN=yes to adjustments, YELLOW=only vocal adjustments, RED=please leave me alone

– Stay at home if you’re feeling sick (you should never practice with fever or sore throat anyway)

We ask you all to kindly cooperate so that we don’t have to close or risk spreading any virus. Please remember that in times of insecurity and stress it is of vital importance to keep up good health routines to keep our immune system strong. We encourage all of you to keep up your regular practice, whether in the shala or at home despite the difficult situation. We are here for you and if you need support or have questions about your practice please don’t hesitate to send us a message. Keeping in touch with a community is important in times where we are more and more isolated from each other.
