Beginner Classes

For those of you who are completely without or have some prior experience with Ashtanga Yoga. A thorough introduction to the basic principles and positions. We will spend a good deal of time on the breathing and the sun salutes, as well as the standing poses. We will explain how the positions must be made accurately and safely so that you get some good habits right from the start.

Also beginner classes Thursday and Saturday – see Yoga with Peter – further down this page


Ashtanga I-II

For those of you who have been attending beginner classes for a couple of seasons or are an experienced student. The team is with traditional counts just like they teach in India. You will learn how to get in and out of positions precisely. At the same time, you are directed to learn the straight lines, alignment, in the positions. The overall focus here is stability and flow.


Mysore style

Self practice. You move through the series at your own pace and get individual guidance and corrections from the teacher. When you are ready, new positions are added. Some experience with Ashtanga Yoga is a prerequisite BUT you do not need to be familiar with the order of the positions to join. The course is taught in Danish, but English will be used if needed.


Full primary counted vinyasa

A trip all the way through the first series - from the initial sun salutes to the closing positions in a energetic flow. We will follow the correct vinyasa method as taught by Sharath and Saraswati at the KPJ Ashtanga Yoga Institute in Mysore, South India. Anyone with previous experience can participate. You don't have to be able to do the whole series, you can just take a break when we reach some positions you don't know. As the focus is the flow, there will be no deeper instruction for the individual positions, so this class is not suitable for beginners.


Yoga with Peter

(former ‘Beginner and Ashtanga I’)

These classes are open to beginners as well as experienced. Practitioners will be introduced to the basic techniques needed for a strengthening as well as soothing yoga practice. The pace is slow so it is also ok for you who have injuries.

There is an emphasis on the primary yoga positions used in the Ashtanga routine but the class structure will be different each time and will be based on the needs of the participants


Yoga with Marika

Marika implements different styles and practices of yoga in her classes, such as Hatha, Vinyasa and Ashtanga with a special focus on breathing. Her intention is to create a safe and relaxed environment that allows people to become aware of their body and can help them to look beyond the mat and into themselves.
