We are a minimalistic non-profit yoga studio. This means we only have what we need and if we have more we give back. At the moment we give back by supporting Plan Fonden with a sponsor child in India. We have also choosen to give back to the environment by only using green energy to power our studio.
To us, the main focus is to give our members a soft and mellow place to practice yoga. A space where you leave your ego by the door and practice with respect and compassion for your body.
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 non-profit yoga community, in Danish that means we are a “forening”.
Practically that means we help each other out, are driven by passion and a big help from volunteers.
Our community is both local and a very international, so therefor is all of our classes are taught in english, by our experienced and competent teachers. The teacher team is very diverse within their teaching style, but will all guide you through the class with calmness and knowledge.
We can't wait to see you in the hot room! If you aren't a member yet, you can join a drop in class for 200DKK.
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: Morning Yoga, Hatcha and Vinyasa
Teaching style: Coming soon
My favorite thing about yoga: coming soon
Teaching: Vinyasa, Hatcha
Teaching style: My personal yoga story began in 2019 after I moved to Copenhagen and was craving for a community and new connections and that’s how I stumbled into Hot Yoga Østerbro.
Fast forward to 2023 I became a certified yoga teacher and began teaching at the studio that became a second home to me.
Coming to my classes you can expect energetic Vinyasa flows and a fun environment, and with my background as a dancer, I teach with an eye for alignment and technique.
Teaching style: My classes incorporate powerful, creative sequences with thoughtfully curated music and a focus on linking breath and movement. I believe yoga is a practice that is personal, fluid and that every day is different - so I give my students the opportunity to embrace this in my classes by tuning into their own body and breath.
I strive to cultivate a safe space for all levels and grounding yet uplifting energy in my classes. I hope to see you there!
My favourite thing about yoga: That it’s a practice - not something that needs to be perfect. I love that when I get on my mat, it’s a moving meditation and a journey inward. I truly believe yoga is a gift for not only the body, but also the mind - impacting how I view, react and exist in the world.
Teaching: Hatha, Slow Flow and Vinyasa
Teaching style: I guide my classes in a relatively slow and steady pace, using clear and purposeful instructions. Focusing on alignment, I seek to guide you in and out of the asanas in a way that will work with your body and not against it. Throughout the class, I reserve space for sensory exploration and awareness training.
My favourite thing about yoga: For me, teaching is like telling a story with a rhythm anchored in my breath, my voice and my body. I enjoy the guidance and I love the sensation of reaching a state of unity with the students through that "story telling". I also love the brief moments of utter silence inside myself during class and when it happens in unity with others, I enjoy it even more.
We practice yoga for ourselves, but always with the highest respect for our fellow students and the teachers who guide us through the practice.
We have created these guidelines to help make Hot Yoga Studio a welcoming and peaceful space for all students, teachers, volunteers and other visitors. If you have any questions or feedback please message us at email@example.com
Arrive on time.
Make sure you have enough time to arrive to the room with out rush. This way you are being mindful to the other students practise. So come at least ten minuttes before class.
Being present in your practice includes leaving your cell phone and bag either in the changerooms or the lockers next to the entrance.The changing room and reception area are locked during classes.
Take off your shoes at the entrance, so we can keep the studio clean.
Let the teacher know.
Let the teacher know if you have injuries or health issues. This way they know to look out for you during class and can suggest variations of flows and poses.
Skip the strong scents.
Perfumes can trigger allergies for other students. Yoga also sharpens the senses, meaning that scents can be very distracting during practice.
Clean your space.
Wipe up any sweat from the floor and put props back in their proper place after class. We have disinfecting sprays and small towels by the door, so you can clean your area and your mat.
We are not just a studio that offers yoga classes (but don't worry you can also just come for the classes!), we are a community of yogis who care about and support our shared space and practice.
