New to Yoga

Mysore Yoga CPH - Astanga Yoga - Frederiksberg - København - Copenhagen

Every Astanga practitioner has stepped onto a mat for the very first time and we all remember what it feels like to start something new. With that in mind we aim to make your start as easy as possible. If you have any doubts or feel unsure, you are always welcome to observe a class before beginning your own practice.

How to get started?

  1. Option 1 is to register for an intro class. The two-hour small group session introduces you to the fundamental elements of the practice of Astanga yoga. After the intro class you will continue in the Mysore classes and learn the practice at your own pace, one step at a time. Additional led classes will help you to create a steady Mysore routine. Pre-registration for the intro class is required (550 kr, including one month of unlimited practice).
  2. Option 2 is to jump right in. In your first Mysore class we will teach you the breathing technique and a small sequence of postures. Your first few practices will be around 30-45 minutes, but they will grow quickly as you internalize the basics. Additional led classes will help you to internalise the practice. If you are new to the practice and want to start without intro class, let us know in advance. All you need is motivation to learn.

If there is one thing that best captures the spirit of yoga and it’s philosophy, it’s the importance of regularity and consistency. To lay a solid foundation and benefit fully from the practice, the attendance should be steady from the beginning.

Confused and not sure? Email us and we’ll be in touch within few hours.
