New at YOGAMUDRA

If you haven't tried yoga before, or if you have tried yoga but are new at YOGAMUDRA, you will get a short introduction to our yoga school and classes on this page.

 

Who are we?

Bodil and Peter started YOGAMUDRA in January 2003. We make a couple both privately and professionally. Our interest in meditation and yoga started out in the early 1990'ies, when yoga was still very much in its "infancy" in Copenhagen and options were quite few. For some years we enjoyed attending classes at Scandinavian School of Yoga and Meditation in Købmagergade, and Peter took part in their 3-month retreat in Håå (Sweden) in 1996. But it wasn't until we met first Iyengar yoga and then Power yoga in the local gym a couple of years later that our love for yoga was complete - oh, what a magical combination of moving and breathing, breaking a sweat, and afterwards feeling that deep, inner peace! :-) Power yoga led us to Astanga vinyasa yoga (its origin), which we practiced daily for years and have taught since 2001, and we think that this style of yoga has a lot to offer to people with an interest in yoga, beginners and more experienced students alike. However, curiosity, openness, critical thinking, and commitment drive our approach to yoga and we love to try out other styles of yoga and broaden our minds. Therefore, YOGAMUDRA is evolving all the time and new yoga and movement styles are added to the palette at the studio. Most recently, we have both trained in teaching Yoga nidra deep relaxation. And we must also not forget to mention our three beautiful children, that have offered plenty of opportunity to practice Pregnancy yoga, Yoga for birth, and Mum & baby yoga, and Bodil has trained to become a doula, too. 

Of course, we cannot do all of this by ourselves! So we have hand-picked a fantastic and inspiring team of teachers that share our curious approach to yoga. We all look forward to welcome you in class!

 

What styles of yoga do we offer classes in - and where can you begin?

  • Astanga vinyasa yoga, a dynamic form of yoga where movement and breathing is co-ordinated through a (relatively) set sequence of postures - and a magical, meditative flow may arise. Among other things you will learn about the characteristic ujjayi breath and sun salutations. We call our Astanga classes Astanga and Astanga, gentle.
    • If you are new/beginner, we recommend that you join Astanga, gentle, e.g. Sunday at 10:00.
  • Hatha yoga, which can be more or less dynamic. Sometimes the movements are gentler than in Astanga vinyasa yoga; at other times just as powerful but without the characteristic ujjayi breath from Astanga. The content and form of the Hatha classes depend to a large extent on the teacher and his/her background within e.g. Dynamic, Anusara, Sivananda yoga etc. Therefore, we recommend that you try different Hatha classes to find what suits your needs the best.
  • Hatha & yoganidra is typically a soft(er) class and always with plenty of time for a deep, guided relaxation.
    • The classes are also suitable for new/beginners.
  • Iyengar yoga focuses on alignment (precision), sequencing, and timing. Iyengar yoga is also well-known for the use of props in the classes. They may contain dynamic elements but also typically holding postures for a longer time than in e.g. Astanga vinyasa yoga. The result is increased mobility and stability, coordination and ability to keep the attention steady.
    • The classes are also suitable for new/beginners.
  • Mum & baby yoga - for mothers with babies that do not crawl yet (in Danish only!)
  • Personal practice, where you work with the teacher to develop your own, personalized yoga practice.
  • Pregnancy yoga - for pregnant students
    • The classes are also suitable for pregnant new/beginners.
  • Vinyasa yogaflow/dynamic classes where the breath is a key element in linking up the postures.
    • If you are new/beginner, we recommend that you join the class Friday at 15:00 (when the group is smaller), but if the time does not suit you, you are welsome in the other Vinyasa classes, too. 
  • Yin yoga, which is a quiet, meditative practice where you slowly get into supine or seated postures that are typically held for 3-5 minutes with as little muscle activity as possible. This affects the connective tissue and the joints, increasing flexibility and dissolving blockages in the energy system of the body.
    • The classes are also suitable for new/beginners.
  • Yoga for birth with partner - for pregnant students and their partners in the third trimester.
  • Yoga for runners are flow/dynamic classes and you need not run to join.

Regardless of which yoga style(s) you choose, you will be moving towards a strong and flexible body, a calm and open mind and great inner well-being.

 

We offer instructions in English in many classes. Look for * in the schedule.

What does it cost?

Our memberships include clip cards, subscription memberships, and yoga passes for an unlimited number of drop-in classes. Prices are set so that the more you practice, and the longer period of time you commit for, the less you pay per class. We recommend that you practice 2 times per week or more if time allows. Then you will experience progress and that it is fun to practice, not just demanding or tiring. Generally speaking it is better to practice a little often than a lot once in a while. Regularity is essential.

 

You can also pay per drop-in class, but obviously that is more expensive than with a little commitment to come to more classes...

 

On the website you can pay with various credit cards (Dankort, Visa/Dankort, Visa and MasterCard); in the shala you can also pay with cash. Please notice that subscription membership can only be bought online via Prices and must always be paid using a credit card (no cash payment!).

 

Where do you find us?

Our yoga studio is located in inner Oesterbro, Ryesgade 106 2nd floor, DK-2100 Copenhagen. View a map and find your way here. Our office and retreat studio is located in Gadevang in Gribskov (one of the largest woods in Denmark), Hovmosevej 17, DK-3400 Hilleroed.

 

What should you bring?

You need a 'sticky' yoga mat. If you have one you can bring it. Otherwise, you can borrow (for free) or buy a high quality yoga mat at the shala. Have a look here or in the yoga shala.

 

It is most comfortable to practice in clothes that is not too loose but flexible. You might also want to bring a towel for sweat or if you want to take a shower after the class.

 

Also, take a look at the other good advice before and after yoga.
