Beginners

If you’re new to ashtanga yoga, it may be appropriate to start by attenting a beginners/foundation course in order to get an insight into how this type of yoga is practiced. The foundation courses are also suitable for those who have already practiced other types of yoga, but who want to learn the ashtanga yoga method thoroughly and gain better knowledge of its principles.

Beginners/foundation courses provide you with the basics of ashtanga yoga. We always start with a brief introduction to the philosophy of yoga followed by a gradual learning of standing asanas (postures) from the ashtanga yoga primary series. We focus mainly on learning how to synchronize breath and movement (vinyasa krama), understand the concept of Bandha (energy locks in the body) and Drishti (focus for the eyes).

All foundation course participants are encouraged to join the mysore classes in parallel with the course. Mysore-style is the traditional way of practicing the method of ashtanga yoga. You can read more about those classes here. One complementary mysore class per week is included in the foundation course price.

Should you prefer a softer form of yoga, we also offer yin yoga and meditation classes as well as courses in yoga for stress reduction (in Swedish). You find all upcoming courses on our events page.

Please also read the sections “FAQ” and “General practice advice ” on this website for further information before you come to practice. Do not hesitate to contact us should you have any additional questions. Please note that we have an age limit of 16 years and require guardian approval for all participants under the age of 18.
