Bodil, Peter & team


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?

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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
  • Viniyoga with focus, breath and movement melting into one.
  • Vinyasa yogaflow/dynamic classes where the breath is a key element in linking up the postures.
  • 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.
  • Yoga for birth with partner - for pregnant students and their partners in the third trimester.

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.

Where to start, as a beginner?

  • It's a great idea to start with a Intro to YOGA 1.25-hour course whenever possible!
  • If you are interested in our Astanga classes, you start with Astanga, gentle and then progress to Astanga classes. See schedule.
  • You are also welcome to explore our Hatha yoga and Hatha & yoganidra classes. As mentioned above some are more demanding than others, so make sure to try them all to find the one(s) that suit you best.
  • Viniyoga is softer than Vinyasa yoga and a nice place to start.
  • If you would like to attend Iyengar yoga, we recommend starting with the class Tuesday evening.
  • Yin yoga may be quite challenging if your body is not very flexible, even though the classes are taught in a slow pace! But feel free to try it out.

What if I am not a beginner - then where do I start?

You may join all of our drop-in classes.


If you have practiced e.g. Pregnancy yoga and/or Mum & baby yoga before, we recommend that you start slowly with Hatha & yoganidraIyengar yoga or Astanga, gentle.

Read about yoga and pregnancy here, before you sign up.


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 or buy a yoga mat at the shala. The price varies depending on quality. 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.
