POSTPONED – PARTY: ANNUAL POTLUCK / BRUNCH

We are sad to inform that this (to us very special) event has been postponed due to the Covid19 pandemic. We are hoping that we can announce a new date as soon as the conditions allow or at latest in spring time when the weather is warmer and we can meet outdoors for a pick nick.

After the guided Ashtanga yoga Primary series class on Sunday the 6th  December, all of Ashtanga Yoga Malmö’s yogis (including family / friends) are invited to our annual potluck party / vegetarian (vegan) brunch. If you cant’ make it to class you are of course welcome to only participate in the brunch afterwards.

This is a great chance for everyone to socialize and get to know each other off the yoga mat. It is also an opportunity for us at Ashtanga Yoga Malmö to thank all our practitioners for the past year and wish everyone good fortune and health for the coming year.

This event is usually much appreciated, but due to Covid-19, this year we have to be a little extra careful and ask everyone to pre-register so that we know how many of you will come. Email us (click here) in advance if you are coming (and how many people). Please also bring a vegan (or vegetarian) contribution to the brunch. Coffee, tea and plant based milk will be available.

WELCOME!

NEWSLETTER NOV-DEC 2020

We’re already far into the autumn semester, but that does not mean that the classes we have on offer decreases. We still have many interesting courses and events coming up and the plan is to go through with them provided that the Corona pandemic doesn’t prevent us from doing so. Thanks to all the precautions we applied together during the spring/summer we were able to keep our doors open and the goal is to remain open throughout the autumn/winter months too. Since the situation may change quickly we will allow registration for our events but only collect payment once we’re sure that the event can take place. Please read more below for detailed information about what’s happening at the shala.

The increasing infection rate in Skåne has led to us once again having to follow stricter guidelines in order to prevent further spreading of Covid19. Even though many of us are tired of all the concessions that have to be made, we ask for your cooperation in following the regulations by the Public Health Authority as well as our internal rules at the shala (read them here). It is crucial for everyone’s health&safety and in order to prevent any risk of having to close the shala. Should you OR anyone in your household have symptoms; please stay at home until Corona has been excluded via a test. On our side we take every possible measure to ensure your safety and we will also abstain from physical adjustments in the coming weeks. If you have a practice card but have to stay at home due to a family member being unwell, you may practice with us via Zoom at no extra cost (does not apply to klippkort). Anyone who is reluctant to travelling far by public transport or is in a risk group and wants to practice from home can buy our special online membership. We’re extending our online programme (Mysore and some special courses) until the end of the year (possibly longer) so that no one needs to pause their yoga practice. If you have questions about our online classes, get in touch with us.

THE AUTUMN SCHEDULE continues until 23/12 and thereafter we have a two-week Christmas and New Year schedule in place. All schedule changes until 31/12 can be found here. A detailed schedule for the week after New Year’s will be published in due time.

SPECIAL CLASSES in November and December offer the following (places are limited due to Covid19):

YOGA PHILOSOPHY: on 8/11 Isabella teaches an introduction to yoga philosophy and chanting. You may join in person at the shala or online via Zoom. The class is part of four taster classes ahead of an in-depth course starting in 2021. The taster classes are open to everyone – read more and register here. (The fourth and last of our taster sessions takes place in December with the theme of meditation. Information about that session can be found under the same link as above)

YIN YOGA & MEDITATION course led by Miho starts on 10/11. Read more here for info and registration. (the course is also taught via Zoom)

INTRO-sessions for beginners are held on 23/11, and 28/12 respectively. These sessions provide a quick overview of the basic principles of Ashtanga Yoga, breath technique and sun salutations. Following the class participants have the opportunity to attend any number of Mysore classes for two weeks at no extra cost. Info about the first session on 23/11 can be found here. Feel free to tell friends and family. Complete beginner’s courses resume in January 2021.

FRIDAY-FUN: on 27/11 Isabella teaches a special class with the theme Breath& Bandha. The class will give you a better understanding of basic breathing techniques and teaches you how to  access your deep core muscles that help create stability and lightness in yoga practice. More info and registration here.

OUR ANNUAL POTLUCK BRUNCH will hopefully be possible to arrange on 6/12 at 11am after the guided class. All our yogis are welcome, but due to Corona, we would like you to pre-register so that we can keep track of the number of participants. The brunch is usually very popular and we hope that it will be the same this year. Bring a vegan/vegetarian contribution to the party buffet. If you cannot come to class, you are of course welcome to the brunch anyway. Read more/register here

POST-CHRISTMAS YOGA WORKSHOP with guest teacher Matt Ryan the weekend of 26-27/12. Matt is an experienced Ashtanga yoga teacher and practitioner with roots in England and family ties to Sweden. During his Christmas visit to Sweden, he comes to teach two-day morning Mysore and afternoon classes with different themes. In addition, he will share his knowledge and experience of Zazen meditation. We are very happy that Matt is coming to us with his positive energy! Do not miss this workshop! Read more and sign up for Matt’s classes here

CHARITY CLASS – on 30/12 we end the year in the spirit of giving and traditionally offer 108 sun salutations for the benefit of the organization V-Care in Mysore, India. We have been supporting this small charity for several years, which primarily helps children and young people belonging to the most vulnerable social groups in India to education and the opportunity for a better future. Your contribution is even more important in these 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

That’s all for now. Please stay updated between the newsletters by following our pages on social media. If you are not a member of our private Facebook group, we recommend that you apply for access to daily updates. The next newsletter will be published before the end of the year.

Stay healthy!

Hang in there, keep a safe distance and do not forget: wash your hands!
