NEWSLETTER APRIL/MAY 2021

It’s been a while since our last newsletter was published, but we can happily inform you that the shala doors are still open. However, the stricter Corona regulations and the pandemic law that was introduced on 10/1 forced us to make some changes and to postpone a few courses and workshops. The regular Mysore classes and foundation courses run as usual according to schedule. We adapt the number of practitioners in the shala and are able to use the adjacent dance studio if it gets crowded. We also continue to offer online participation via Zoom (not available for the foundation course) for those with monthly, “klipp” or special online cards. If you’d like to know more about yoga online, please contact us.

EASTER OPENING HOURS – please note that we have special opening hours during the Easter weekend (this and all other temporary schedule changes for April / May can be found here):

2/4 Good Friday Mysore 9-11.30

4/4 Easter Day Guided Primary 9-10.30 followed by tea & talk

5/4 Easter Monday Mysore 9-11.30

On Easter Monday at 11.30-12.30, Isabella also teaches a pop-up Chanting workshop We learn to pronounce in Sanskrit and chant some basic mantras. If you are interested, please email us.

NEW COURSES starting in April 2021:

ASHTANGA FOUNDATION COURSE (beginners) – starts on Monday 12/4. The course runs for 8 weeks and participants are offered one free Mysore class a week in adidtion to the weekly course sessions. Feel free to tell your friends. read more here

YIN YOGA & MEDITATION with Miho continues on Tuesday evenings with a new course starting on 13/4. Read more here for additional info and registration. (the course is also held online). You can participate with a monthly / seasonal / klipp card. Pre-registration is mandatory for everyone.

ASHTANGA FOUNDATION LEVEL2 – this course/guided class with Sara resumes on 15/4 and runs on Thursday evenings. It’s suitable if you’ve done a foundation course and want more group-guidance or if you’ve had a break from practice and want to refresh you’re ”ashtanga memory”. The course is also open as a “led class” (1/2 Primary) for those who already have a monthly / seasonal / klipp card with us. Everyone is asked to register in advance so that we can keep track of the number of participants. Read more here

SUMMER-SEASON 2021, is approaching and we hope to arrange more of the fun events that summers usually involve. Depending on whether the Corona restrictions are eased or not, we can move on with plans to receive guest teachers Matt Ryan and Tim Feldmann. We are also planning a yoga weekend in Mölle, at Yoga by the Sea. We advise you to keep an eye on our website and social media for updates on this. An activity already planned and scheduled is:

YOGA RETREAT ON THE ISLAND OF KADERMO, FINLAND, 1-8 August;  This will be the third year that Isabella is invited to teach at Kadermo Conscious Living in the Finnish archipelago outside Hanko. Last year we had to cancel due to Corona but this summer we can finally return to the tranquility and beautiful nature of Kadermo. A week of yoga, vegetarian food and swimming in the sea with Finnish sauna after – the best way to recharge your batteries and immerse yourself in your yoga practice. Learn more about the retreat here

That’s all for now, but before we sum up we’d like to flag for this year’s YOGA STOPS TRAFFICK class which is part of a worldwide event in the fight against human trafficking. This year we arrange the event on the full moon on Sunday 28/3 (no Mysore then). Read more about the event below or click here.

Thank you once again for your support and cooperation with regard to following the restrictions we’ve had to implement over the past year. It feels important remain open in order to further good physical and mental health for our practitioners. Hopefully we can soon organize more workshops and events as well as social gatherings and fun stuff off the yoga mat. We have plans for both a party/brunch and kirtan outdoors in the spring/summer. And we look forward to seeing old faces again (and new of course) who have not been able to get to the shala in the past year.

Stay updated in between the newsletters by following our pages on social media. And if you are not a member of our closed Facebook group, we recommend that you apply to it to get access to daily updates.

Take care, stay healthy and keep a safe distance on and off the yoga mat. See you at the shala or online!

SEVEN GOOD REASONS TO GO ON A YOGA HOLIDAY

A yoga holiday is more than just a regular vacation. It’s a get away, an adventure, and often life long memory:

TAKE A BREAK – a yoga trip gives you the chance to disconnect from everyday stress, duties and distractions. It’s easier to learn how to focus and be present on the yoga mat when you don’t have to rush to work or catch the bus. Then take your newfound focus home with you and apply it to your dayily life.

GET (RE) STARTED – on retreat it is easier to break old (bad) habits and replace them with new, more helpful routines (both with regards to yoga but also concerning diet and sleep). If you have difficulty to get a daily practice going, it will be easier to do this on a retreat with the support of the teacher. A retreat can be a fresh start.

DEEPEN YOUR PRACTICE – a smaller group of practitioners on retreat allows for more quality time with the teacher. With class twice daily there is more room to discuss problems/difficulties and to have conversations about yoga both on and off the yoga mat.

TIME FOR RECOVERY – relax, enjoy good food, get inspired and energized. Boost your vitamin D-levels to prepare for the darker and colder months in Sweden.

COMMUNITY – a yoga trip is also a social event with shared meals and accommodation where you have the opportunity to meet like-minded people from different parts of the world, exchange experiences and meet friends for life.

A CULTURAL EXPERIENCE – experience a new environment and/or another country, its language, historical sites, architecture and food culture. If the trip goes to India it’ll take you to the roots of yoga and give you the opportunity to experience all the rituals and myths that surround yoga historically.

SUPPORT TO THE LOCAL ECONOMY – by exploring the local environment, visiting local markets and other places you will benefit the tourism industry and the small businesses. If your trip goes abroad you might get an insight into what life looks like in a place with a very different situation compared to your home country.

Going on yoga holiday provides a chance for own-time and self-development; it’s a welcome break as well as “yoga-intensive”. Of course your daily practice at home with your teacher is most important, that which provides you with stability and leads to long-term development and change. But a yoga holiday can be a life-changing experience that recharges you with new energy, strength and renewed joy to practice before returning home.

P.S. Isabella teaches a two week retreat at Purple Valley Yoga Centre in Goa, India from 26 Oct – 8 Nov 2019. Check it out here (20% off the price if you book before 30 September)
