• Ryesgade 106 2nd
All levels - complete beginners as well as more experienced practitioners - are very welcome in our classes! Use the guidelines below to find the classes that suit your temper.
Look for * in the schedule for classes in English.
For complete beginners. In the course of one intro course, which includes 3 75-minute classes, we introduce the basic techniques (ujjayi breath, vinyasa movement, etc.), sun salutation A ad B, plus a selection of standing and finishing postures. An intro course will give you a solid understanding and the best foundation for further practice in Ashtanga Guided and Ashtanga Mysore classes. Focus on technique.
Pre-registration required: click on log in in the menu above, create a profile and/or log in, then go to prices, and book/buy the intro course that you would like to attend. Your space is secured when we have received your payment.
When no intro courses are offered in English and you are completely new to the practice, please contact us at for advise on how and when to start. Most likely we can accommodate you in our Ashtanga Mysore classes (**).
For all except complete beginners. Classes begin with breath work and afterwards there will be group instructions through sun salutations, standing, seated, and finishing postures as time allows. Sometimes we explore and challenge the Ashtanga vinyasa sequence of postures; other times we follow the classical sequence. The theme of the class may be SLOW (detailed instruction on how to execute each posture), FLOW (rhythm in breath and movement) or GROW (new postures, or well-known postures in new ways). We generally focus on building a deeper understanding of your yoga practice rather than the number of postures performed.
To find a class that suits your mood, energy level, and yoga experience you can follow these guidelines:
Ashtanga Guided 1: Focus on technique and plenty of time for sun salutations and standing postures. The classes are well suited for you if you have recently completed an intro course. More experienced students interested in working at a tranquil pace and with precision are also welcome.
Ashtanga Guided 1/2: Somewhat more flow and a little less technique than level 1. We guide seated postures as much as time allows. The classes are well suited both if you are a beginner with experience from an intro course and some (not necessarily many) level 1 classes and you would like to take up a challenge, and if you are more experience and enjoy working with precision in the postures.
Ashtanga Guided 2: More flow, more postures. We may choose to guide the full primary series, or parts of primary and some of intermediate series, or more experimental sequences. These classes are primarily for seasoned students.
Ashtanga Guided and Ashtanga Mysore classes complement each other, and we recommend that you join both - and thereby learn to practice independently.
For all except complete beginners (unless agreed cf. **). In Ashtanga Mysore classes everybody practice at their own level following their breath. You get 1-on-1 instructions when needed to go further and deeper in your yoga practice. No group instructions; rather it is a 'private class' in a group setting. You need to learn the sequence of postures by heart but do not need to know everything in advance. We will build the sequence with you, i.e. introduce new postures from the primary and intermediate series when you are ready. We may also adjust the sequence to suit individual needs.
Since there is no group instruction in the Mysore classes you can start your practice whenever you like within the time offered. You just need to make sure that you are finished then the class is over.
Have a look at our combined Ashtanga Guided / Mysore morning classes, too.
Ashtanga Mysore practice gives (over time) a deeper and more meditative practice than guided classes. The term "Mysore" is the name of the city in India, where the Ashtanga vinyasa yoga master Sri K. Pattabhi Jois taught until his death in May 2009 and where his grandson Sri R. Sharath continues his work. It is the traditional way to learn the practice, also for beginners.
Yoga for everybody. In the Hatha yoga classes the breath is the key element, and we begin with seated or supine breath work (pranayama) and also finish the class with breath work and a guided relaxation. The postures, which are aimed at softening your body and increasing your body awareness, are connected through the breath and at a level where everybody can follow. We take into consideration every students special needs and may use props when need be. Hatha yoga is gentle to your body but with a deeply relaxing effect.
No intro course needed to participate.
Hatha & meditation
The focus of this class is to create mindfulness through different techniques.
1st part, approx. 30 minutes: We begin with movement through gentle sequences of postures that help liberating the breath and prefare the body to sit with pranayama (breath work) and in meditation. We will alternate between flow and longer holds of postures to allow us to investigate how we relate habitually to our circumstances.
2nd part, approx. 60 minutes: The teacher will guide you through various pranayama and meditation techniques, focusing on building concentration and with time more insight. Questions are welcome towards the end of class, which will also include a short talk to support the practice. The talk will be inspired by yoga and buddhist philosophy as well as western psychology and science.
No intro course is needed to join.
Special care will be given to new students every first class of the month. Please, talk to the teacher about your background. Some experience with yoga and meditation is an advantage; knowledge of the ujjayi breath (e.g. from our Ashtanga vinyasa yoga classes) and some Hatha yoga, too.
For all except complete beginners. Iyengar yoga is a special form of Hatha yoga, developed by the living yoga legend B.K.S. Iyengar. In Iyengar yoga we work systematically to develop your body intelligence, primarily through focus on alignment. Props (blankets, blocks, and straps) are widely used to adapt the postures to the individual and thereby gradually build flexibility and strength to achive the full postures. The class consists of an initial centering exercise (dharana), followed by standing postures, seated postures, and inverted postures, and finally a relaxation.
Yoga for mothers and babies up to 1 year. No 'drop in'. Taught in Danish.
Yoga for pregnant women. No 'drop in'. Taught in Danish.
In this class we focus on the question: How can yoga help you become a better runner? Taught in Danish.
Yoga and running is a great combination in many ways if you wish to use and exercise your body all-round, and yoga has much to offer you as a runner. Increased flexibility, strength and stability. Better posture, balance and awareness of the feet. All are things that contribute to more freedom of movement and increased body awareness, leading to a better style of running. Good style of running is a great starting point for feeling joy when running and to prevent injuries.
Please note that you do not need to be a runner to participate. However, the program is compiled to be particularly beneficial for runners e.g. wanting flexibility in hamstrings and hips, better posture, better breathing, and better style of running.
The first part of the class consists of an intense strengthening and stabilizing sequence, while the second part consists of deep and releasing stretches that may also inspire your post-running stretching at home.
