Summer is here with holidays and a lot of sunshine (hopefully!). The current schedule runs until July 7th when we close for a summer break until July 23rd. We therefore kindly ask those of you who store mats at the shala in Malmö to take them home and wash them while we’re closed. Mats that are not taken care of will be given to second hand/recycling. Contact us if you’re unable to fetch your mat before we close. The shala re-opens on July 24th with a summer schedule that runs until August 13th. You find all the information about our summer opening hours and schedule here.
Before the summer break, we have a final guided class on July 2nd. (The Mysore class is cancelled then). Class starts at 9.30am and you are traditionally led (Sanskrit) through the Ashtanga yoga Primary series. All are welcome regardless of whether you’ve completed the whole series or not. BUT, please arrive on time! After class we have tea and the last yoga talk this season where we reflect on why we practice yoga.
During the summer break we go to Uddebo where Isabella teaches a 5-day Ashtanga yoga retreat. We return to the Uddebo Art & Drumhouse where we stayed last year. You may still join us! Don’t miss the opportunity to deepen your yoga practice and enjoy great food with friends! Contact us if you are interested. More info here.
The autumn schedule starts on August 14th and runs until the end of the year. Note that some class timings will be slightly altered. New is also that we’ll have two guided classes a month with full primary series the LAST Sunday each month and half primary series (until Navasana) every fourth Thursday night instead of Mysore class. All dates are on the overview schedule which you can download: Autumn schedule 2017. The schedule will soon also be available on the website.
New beginners’ courses in Ashtanga yoga start in August/September in Lund and Malmö respectively. Info about these is found here. Please share with friends/family who may be interested. The more who practice the merrier!
New special workshops and events are already scheduled for the autumn. Friday-fun continues as do the “Yoga talks” after guided class on Sundays. In addition, Isabella will teach a couple of vinyasa-workshops and Mysore classes at Astanga Yoga Copenhagen. Many of the upcoming events are already published on the events page where you may read more and register (places usually fill up fast)!
Our teacher R Sharath Jois is visiting Copenhagen the first week of August and Stockholm the second week. You can still register to practice with him but there are only a few places left – more info here. If you’ve already booked (and paid) for Copenhagen, you may ask Isabella to pick up your access card and receive it in Malmö/Lund the week of 24-31 July.
The next newsletter will reach you mid-august with more detailed information about the autumn’s events. Hope to see most of you on the mat this summer, but would also like to take the opportunity to thank you all for this semester!
