We are so happy you found your way to our corner of the internet and to our yoga studio. Hot Yoga Studio by Østerbro Yoga Union was founded in 2013 (Back then we were not a union) by Ai Chin & Vidi. Both Ai Chin and Vidi have many years of yoga expirience and have lived all over the world, before they decided to open Hot Yoga Stuido. They both still teach at the studio but now we are a co-operative yoga community, in Danish that means we are a “yogaforening”.
Practically that means we help each other out, are driven by passion and volunteers, and that the studio isn’t about making money and being fancy, but all about being a safe place where you can calm your mind and spend some time with yourself and your body. It’s a no judging space for you and all of our community.
Hot Yoga Studio s not a big fancy luxurious place, but a modest and calm place with a relaxed atmosphere – this helps us to keep our prices down.
We want to be an including space so all our classes are taught in english, by our experienced and competent teachers.
The teacher team is very diverse within how they teach, but will all guide you through the class with calm and knowledge.
We can't wait to see you in the hot room!
Our studio is driven by volunteers and our teachers. We are a big team behind it all, and we are so grateful for all the help we get.
Here you can meet our lovely teacher team and get to know them a little better.
Teaches: all kinds of yoga.
Teaching style: with each class focusing on different elements of yoga, we dive into all the corners of ourselves, even the ones that we tend to neglect. Traveling through challenging yoga flows with safety guidance and spiritual space, to experience the present moment, that yoga gives.
My favorite thing about yoga: My favourite thing about yoga, is how the practice has slowly gone from the mat, off the mat. How it has changed my perspective of the world and how it has become part of my life. Yoga has taught me so many things about myself, that I before yoga, never thought of as a possibility. It has given me a community which I feel truly connected to, long lasting friendships that otherwise wouldn’t have formed, and

Teaching style: My teaching style is dynamic and power full. I love many styles of yoga when practicing myself, but when I teach, I love guiding into a practice where you somehow are forced to deal with your breath and need your focus. I am also drawn towards the contrast and balance of yin and yang and that might be why I like pushing the classes I teach.
My favorite thing about yoga: The space and the energy you share in a practice with other people is my favorite aspect of yoga. The lockdowns have really taught me that the deepest level of my practice is not what I find within myself - I can go into myself and find that in so many different ways, but the energy boost that the breath and practice of fellow yogis gives me - that I cannot find that anywhere else.
Teaches: I teach hatha, vinyasa and yin
Teaching style: I like to bring all elements into the practice. I use clear instruction to help my students step into a more meditative state. I get to know my students fairly quickly, and build up the class that suits every student.
My favorite thing about yoga: I love yoga because it keeps me present, and in contact with my body and my breath. It helps me to build a strength in me, not only physically, but also mentally. The joy yoga gives me is just a god sent.
Teaching: hatha and yin yoga
Teaching style: My teaching style depends on which class I am teaching. In general I focused on the breath and how you can use it to your advantage. In hatha classes I like to focus on building strength, alignment and balance. And in yin yoga classes I emphasize on finding your own edge and practise mindfulness through breathing.
My favorite thing about yoga: Yoga gives me mental og physical strength and that is something I take with me in other aspects of life. It is just a joy to teach and I hope to spread my passion for yoga to others.
Teaching: Hatha, Vinyasa, Yin and Mindfulness Meditation.
Teaching style: I'm a social Anthropologist and Yoga teacher, born and raised in Denmark. I have been practicing yoga for 10+ years and my curiosity on different cultures and dynamics between people have brought me around the world - always with a yoga mat in my backpack. I bring my creativity, strength and humor to my classes and leaves you with a feeling of inner strength and with a smile on your face
My favorite thing about yoga: For me yoga is about finding myself both physically and mentally, explore who I am, and most importantly finding some calmness in life
Teaches: Hatha, Vinyasa and Yin
Teaching style: I love teaching powerful, playful classes incorporating Pranayama techniques and interesting transitions. My goal for my students is to get into a meditative flow, listen to the breath and notice how they feel in each moment as they flow through different postures.
My favorite thing about yoga: My favorite thing about yoga is that it is everlasting and continuous. It can be incorporated into all aspects of life, on the mat, but even more so off the mat. And there is so much to learn. I am a teacher but I will ALWAYS be a student first. I’m continuously learning and growing, and the more that I learn, the more I realize how much I don’t know! Yoga keeps me humble and curious. And I get to know myself and the world around me even more as I grow.

Teaching style: Coming soon
My favorite thing about yoga: coming soon
Teaching style: I recently finished my multistyle YTT in spain, and am therefor still finding my ground as a teacher. In my classes I put a lot of focus on making beautiful movements and flows, but so that everyone can participate.
My favourite thing about yoga:
It is important for me to create a space were you all stay on your own mat, with your own bodies, and participate on your level, listening to how your body feels today. This is the beauty and one of the biggest challenges of yoga to me - being able to liste to what your body needs in the exact moment, while still pushing your limits.
Besides from that I have the past years been exploring different tools for Chakra meditations and energy work at ‘Vækstcenteret’, which I also love to implement in my classes, to create a different focus.
Teaching: mainly vinyasa and slow flows
Teaching style: With my teaching I like to have a starting point at either a specific yoga asana/peak pose, a feeling, an element or reflecting on the season of the year. I try to be very intuitive when creating a flow, because thats when i feel that yoga does its best work. I always focus a lot on breathing, starting the flow of in a meditation to connect with your breath, as the very first thing in the practice. I have experienced that creating a free flow of the breath and a relationship / a concrete visualization of its journey through the body, makes you stay more connected and focused during flowing. Yoga can become therapeutic with this deep concentration and being present in just that moment in the studio, a focus most people don’t have in their modern every day life - going from one task to another during the day. And it also becomes more fun - i like to build a sequence, which by the end of the class makes you feel like you achieved to
My favourite thing about yoga: Exactly the working with breath, control and concentration is my favourite thing about yoga. In a time where i couldn’t find steady ground beneath my feet, yoga opened up new possibilities for me. I love the common idea of sharing energy with other yogis in practicing. I feel like the love for seeking inwards though yoga instantly creates amazing communities, such like ØYF.
Teaching: Hatha, Vinyasa, Yin and Yoga Nidra.
Teaching style: In my classes I like to maintain a meditative focus and awareness of the breath. Whilst ensuring the class is physically challenging through movement and stillness with the space to further your practice and deepen your understanding and acceptance of self.
My favourite thing about yoga: I have been practicing yoga for almost ten years and I've practiced all over India, Sri Lanka and Nepal. For me yoga has so much power to discover parts of ourselves unknown and ability to unlock our true potential.
