Believe it or not, we’re already half way through the autumn semester. The first round of beginners’ courses is about to “graduate” and two groups of new ashtangis are ready to fly. We’d like to welcome all the new students to our Mysore classes and flag our “Ashtanga Yoga Malmö/Lund Practitioner’s group” on FB. There you can ask questions, share experiences, give advice and get internal shala news (click the link above to join). This newsletter contains important info for October+November such as temporary schedule changes, new courses and events as well as some practical things in the shala.

NEW ENTRANCE IN MALMÖ – please note that the shala in Malmö hereafter is accessed via the door at Grangatan 2 (around the corner). The old door code is still valid but needs to be entered twice; first at the main entrance and then at the glass door inside the hallway. You find the [small] keypad on the wall just next to the door.

TEMPORARY SCHEDULE CHANGES – our regular schedule continues until 21/12, after which we’ll have a special Christmas&New Year schedule for a few weeks. Please note that between 11-31 October, Isabella is in India to participate at a Yatra in the Himalayas with R. Sharath Jois and Eddie Stern. In her absence cover teachers will keep the schedule running. A detailed schedule for the period can be found here

GUIDED PRIMARY SERIES – takes place on the first Sunday each month (the Mysore class is cancelled those days). Upcoming dates are 7/10 and 4/11 at 9:00 in Malmö. The class is open to all, but it’s not suitable for beginners. After class, we meet for tea & talk where we discuss a yoga-related theme. On 7/10 we talk about “A Sustainable Yoga Practice” and on 4/11, Isabella shares stories from her trip to the Himalayas.
Those who do not feel ready for full guided primary series are welcome to the Beginner’s level 2 class (guided up to half primary series) that takes place every Sunday at 11:30 in Malmö.

NEW BEGINNERS COURSES – start in Malmö in November shortly after the autumn holidays. Isabella teaches the course on Monday evenings starting 5/11 and Sara teaches the Saturday morning course starting 10/11. All upcoming courses are available here

FRIDAY-FUN – our alternative after-work class returns on 9/11 at 17:00 in Malmö with the theme “Back to Basics: Jump back, jump through”. It will be a challenging class but as always we’ll have great fun! Sign up now to secure your spot!

WORKSHOPS in other cities – in November, Isabella is invited to teach special weekend workshops at USYoga in Borås and Mpiyo in Helsingborg. Why not join or share with friends in the area who might be interested?

SAVE THE DATE – for our annual vegan potluck brunch on Sunday 2nd December. This is one of our favourite events of the year and not to miss! Read more on the events page and mark your calendars!

Our next newsletter will be published at the end of November. It’ll contain more info about social events at the shala in December/January as well as the schedule for Christmas and New Year.

Even though it’s still summer (and what a summer !!!), our autumn schedule is already up and running. There’s Mysore class 6 mornings and 2 evenings a week (except on full/new moon when we’re closed. See all moon-day dates here). Beginners’ courses in Malmö and Lund start in a few weeks and an overview of the autumn schedule can be found on our schedule page. Continue reading for info on our courses, upcoming retreats, Friday-fun and more this autumn.

YOGA RETREAT – the last weekend in August, 24-26/8, we go to Uddebo for two days of re-charging our batteries ahead of the autumn. We only have a couple of residential spots left but you can still join if you arrange your own accommodation nearby. The Uddebo-retreat is an annual trip which is usually highly appreciated. Read more here and book now!

BEGINNER’S LEVEL 1&2 COURSES – start in Malmö and Lund at the end of August/beginning of September. New is that we have TWO beginner’s courses in Malmö; on Mondays taught by Isabella and on Saturdays taught by Miho and later this autumn Sara. In Lund, the beginner’s course is on Wednesdays at Hälsans Hus. The beginner’s level 2 course that was held in Lund on Wednesdays last semester is moved to Sundays in Malmö. The course/class is open to those who oversleep on the Sunday or those who want/need more guidance up to half primary series. You can join the level 2 as a course or drop-in with “klippkort”/monthly card, but it’s good to sign up in advance regardless. More about upcoming courses, times, prices, etc. on our events page.

MONTHLY PRIMARY SERIES – on the first Sunday each month Isabella guides a full primary series class in Malmö followed by tea & talk where we discuss a yoga-related subject. Recently, we talked about the teacher/student relationship in yoga. Next month (2/9), the theme is “Ahimsa”, non-violence, the most important yogic principle. Click here for all dates of guided class with  tea&talk.

FRIDAY-FUN – our alternative after-work resumes once a month at our studio in Malmö. This autumn we go back to basics and explore important parts of Ashtanga that are sometimes forgotten or “cheated” with. All Friday-fun classes and themes are available on the events page. The first class is on Friday 31/8 with the theme “Breath and Bandha” – read more and sign up here (places fill up fast).

WORKSHOPS in other cities – this autumn, Isabella also teaches in other yoga shalas in Sweden. In November, she travels to USYoga in Borås and later to Mpiyo in Helsingborg for special workshops. Come and join or feel free to share with friends who live nearby and may be interested.

We look forward to welcoming back old faces after the holidays and to receive new yoga aspirants at the shala. But, please make sure you’ve read and follow our guidelines for everyone’s comfort. And stay up to date about temporary schedule changes etc. by following us on Instagram and Facebook, or here on the news page/blog regularly.

See you on the yoga mat!
Om Shanti

The spring semester is coming to an end and on 1 July the summer schedule starts. In this newsletter you can read about our summer opening hours, yoga retreats in July and August, and get a glimpse at what’s happening this autumn. We would also like to highlight the “International Yoga Day” on 21 June. We would like to to honour this day by raising funds in favour of the organisation V-Care in Mysore that we’re supporting since a long time. Yoga is not just postures on the yoga mat but also about helping others and giving back to society.  From the 21/6 to 27/6 you’re invited to submit your contribution either in cash at the shala or through swish 123 576 46 91. Read more about V-Care and how they help children from the untouchable cast in India here. In July, Lisa Lalér from our partner Yogashala Stockholm will visit V-Care and we hope to get an update from her.

SUMMER SCHEDULE – in July we’ll have limited opening hours for a few weeks. A detailed schedule of Mysore classes varied with self-practice is available here. If you buy a new card in July your card will be extended with a couple of weeks as compensation. Also, don’t forget that we are closed on Midsummer’s Eve 22/6 and Thursday 28/6 which is full moon.

YOGA HOLIDAYS – This summer Isabella hosts two yoga retreats; one week in Finland in July and a yoga weekend in Uddebo in August.


The week-long retreat 8-13 July, takes place at Kadermo Conscious Living in the Finnish archipelago. On Kadermo island you can escape from civilization, enjoy days full of yoga, delicious vegetarian food and relax in a truly unique setting. There are still some places left – read more and book through our here. Don’t miss this trip!

The last weekend of August 24-26/8, we return to Uddebo for a two-day Ashtanga Yoga Intensive. We repeat the success of the past two years and organise a third retreat in the cozy old school building in Uddebo. The trip is very popular – don’t wait to reserve your spot! Read more and book here

THE AUTUMN SCHEDULE starts on 1 August and will be posted on the web soon. Info about our upcoming beginner’s level 1 and 2 courses is already available on the events page. There are no major changes to the autumn schedule other than the Beginners’ level 2 course being moved to Sundays Malmö. That way, people who oversleep and miss Mysore class and/or those who wish to have more guidance after the beginners’ level 1, can still practice that day. The class can be taken as a course or with “klippkort”. Details about the level 1 and 2 courses here

FRIDAY-FUN – the first alternative after-work this autumn takes place on 31 August at 17-19 in Malmö. We return to the basics of Ashtanga yoga and focus on Breath and Bandha technique. Read more about the class and register here. It’ll be fun as usual!

During the month of July 2018,  we’ll run a slightly reduced summer schedule. All necessary information about our teaching is available on the schedule page and here below you’ll find an overview of the summer schedule (which is also available on the schedule page). Those who have or buy practice cards that include the month of July will be compensated (we add two weeks onto the card) for the reduced number of practice opportunities. Please note that some mornings are only self-practice classes, which means that you can use the room to do your practice but no teacher will be present. We appreciate that you respect the specified times and are showered and ready when the class time is over. Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions (new students and guest practitioners please always send an email before you come to class the first time)!
