Welcome to our little yoga studio
in the heart of Østerbro. All classes
are taught in English.

Open weekend at the
studio in october

Yin Workshop
with the five elements

We are a co-operative yoga community (yogaforening), which means we help each other out and have a lot of help from volunteers.

We have created a safe haven in the heart of Østerbro, just two minutes from Trianglen. Our studio is modest, calm and has a relaxed atmosphere – this help us to keep our prices down!
Labels and status is not our intent – we want to have a loving and peaceful atmosphere in our studio.

Sometimes, yoga is just
getting off 
the couch

Everyone's yoga practise is different. Listen to your body and be patient with it.

All classes can be adapted for all levels, just talk to the teacher before class if you have any limitations and be sure to practice at your own pace and in a way that is sensible for you.

The temperature for hot classes is between 30° and 40° – usually it is around 38°.
Morning classes are held at room temperature (around 22° – so you might want to bring a sweater and warm socks) and warm classes are held in a gently heated room around 28°.


Plan your practise

Besides a sweaty practice, there's lot of benifts to practising hot yoga. The room is heated with infrared heating panels which creates beneficial electromagnetic waves, that goes directly into your bones, blood circulation and muscles, causing numerous advantages such as:

  • Releasing pain
  • Increasing blood circulation
  • Eliminating tocsins
  • Burning calories
  • Restoring joint issues
  • Calming the nerves
  • Improving skin beauty

Remember to drink a lot of water when you practise hot yoga

Hatha

A yoga class described as ‘Hatha’ will typically involve a set of yoga poses and breathing techniques. These are often more slow and with more static holds of the poses than a Vinyasa flow or Ashtanga class.

Hatha is for you who likes a yoga class where you have a little more time in the poses, but still gets to sweat. You will leave the class feeling longer, looseer and relaxed.

Vinyasa

Vinyasa is a style of yoga where you go from postures to postures, seamlessly, following your breath. These types of classes are often the ones where you sweat the most and do a lot of chaturanga flows. Two classes are ever alike. The variable nature of Vinyasa Yoga helps to develop a more balanced body as well as prevent repetitive motion injuries that can happen if you are always doing the same thing every day.

 

Yin

Yin yoga is a slow, deep and more meditative practise. Yin works deeply into our body with longer-held poses and targets the deepest tissues of the body, our connective tissues – ligaments, joints, bones, and the deep fascia. The slow movements gives you space to turn inward, breath through discomfort and sit with your thoughts.

Yin yoga is for you, if you need to really come down and connect with yourself after a long and stressfull time. Yin is perfect for creating a good mindspace and for a better sleep.

 

 

 

Bikram

Bikram classes are always the same, so they are perfect for you who love routines. Bikram is always a repetition of the same 26 poses in set cycles over a 90-minute class. The poses were chosen by Choudhury, the founder of Bikram,  from the classic hatha poses and are designed to "systematically move fresh, oxygenated blood to 100 percent of your body, to each organ and fiber," according to the official

Bikram yoga site.
