We welcome the beautiful month of May and the sunny days it’s offered us so far. Oh, how our bodies have longed for these warmer temperatures and how our minds have longed for the light. With the summer months finally at our doorstep, Ashtanga Yoga Malmö would like to share all the inspiring and fun events that we have planned for you in the coming months. In this newsletter you can read about the summer schedule, special summer offers for both new and existing members, and information about special yoga events at the shala and beyond.


We’ll kick-start the summer on 9th of June with a guided primary series class followed by a potluck and kirtan. Viktoria and her friends come to the shala to play and sing for/with us. Everyone can participate, whether you just want to have a cup of coffee, listen to the music or perhaps both sing and dance. Bring your own “fika”, an open mind and a donation to the musicians. You can read more about the event here


The sale of our summer card also begins on 9th of June. It costs 900SEK/month and can be purchased several times. The last validity date is 8th of September, a few days into the autumn schedule. Please note that the summer card cannot be paused or combined with other discounts. You get the card at the shala and the invoice comes via email as usual.

Our summer schedule starts after midsummer, Monday 24th June, and continues until 31st August. You can see an overview of the summer's schedule here already and later it will be up on the schedule page. We are open all summer and Lisa Norén, who runs Ashtanga Yoga Österlen, will cover mysore classes from 15-31st July. We are happy to welcome Lisa to the shala and to add another talented and authorised yoga teacher to our team. Read more about Lisa on the teachers page.


- 17/6 INTRODUCTORY CLASS to ashtanga (+ two weeks of free practice) for new participants. The class gives an introduction to the basics of ashtanga yoga with the chance to continue practicing at no extra cost for two weeks immediately after the introduction. The offer applies to new participants and includes the opportunity to learn ashtanga yoga in the traditional way through Mysore style classes. Read more here

- 25/8 OPEN HOUSE with free trial classes, a Q&A session and “fika”. On Sunday 25/8 we invite new and existing members to come take practice, socialize and have coffee&tea with us. The day starts with the regular morning mysore class for our current card holders and at 11:30 am we open the doors to the public. People may sign up for free trial classes or just come to visit the premises. Participants (new and old) can take advantage of the special offers we’ll have only on the 25th.

It has become a tradition that our summer yoga holiday goes to the island of Kadermo in Finland. Between 14-19th July, Isabella teaches a one-week yoga retreat at the at Kadermo Retreat Centre in the Finnish archipelago. The week at Kadermo offers both a chance to enjoy nature, immerse yourself in your yoga practice and meet like-minded people from all over the world. Be mesmerized by the calm, the light and the magic of this small Finnish island, and not least by the delicious food prepared by our Indian chef Anu. Kadermo Retreat Centre is a very special place that cannot be described but ought to be experienced. Come join us! Read more here


R. Sharath Jois, our teacher from India, will come to Stockholm on 6-11th August this year. It is unique that Sharathji visits places outside India and there are very few shalas in the world who get the opportunity to host him. We are proud that Sharathji has chosen to come to Yogashala Stockholm and Sweden repeatedly since 2015 - it means a lot to all the Swedish shalas. We support Yogashala in their hosting him and Isabella + several other shala members will travel up to attend the workshop. Grab the chance to experience a bit of Mysore and India on home ground. Take a look at Yogashala Stockholm's website for more information about the workshop and how to register.


The autumn schedule starts on 1st September and the first batch of evening courses/weekend workshops are already available on our website ready for registration. The courses usually fill up quickly, so don't wait too long to visit the events page and scroll through the pages. We are always happy when you recommend our courses to your friends and colleagues who might be keen on knowing more about yoga. Or why not invite them to the open house in August?

At the start of September, we are also delighted to host guest teacher Tim Feldmann on his second visit to Ashtanga Yoga Malmö. The weekend of September 6-8th, Tim teaches an immersion in ashtanga yoga open to all levels of practitioners. The workshop is almost fully booked - we only have a few places left for the whole workshop, but there is still room at the morning mysore classes (Sat+Sun). Read more about the weekend with Tim here and email us if you want to sign up or have any questions.

That's all for now. The next newsletter will be distributed in mid-August with more information about the autumn schedule, upcoming courses etc. We ask you to stay updated between newsletters by following us on social media (links in the menu above under Contact). If you are not a member of our closed Facebook group, we recommend applying to it to get access to the latest news and updates at short notice. Sometimes we change the door code and those who have valid practice cards receive a text message when this happens, but if you have not been to the shala for a while, we ask you to email us well in advance before your visit. Please note that we don’t read/reply to emails outside office hours or on weekends.

 Sun(ny) salutations,

Isabella & crew
