February guest teacher: Alec Rouben

We're excited to introduce to you our February guest teacher, ALEC VISHAL ROUBEN. Alec will be leading a workshop style class next Saturday at Reykjavík Yoga!

Alec Vishal Rouben is inspired to have stumbled upon a path of service! Alec Vishal is from Colorado, USA & is currently living in the UK in pursuit of a Masters degree in Traditions of Yoga & Meditation. Having his first yoga practice through the Vinyasa system, breath became the key to finding inner contentment in life, staged through mindfulness. His personal practice reveals strong gems on how to move towards mastery in his unique offering of yoga to the world, influencing fellow brothers and sisters, while receiving wisdom from his Community. 

With a strong relationship around Pranayama, Meditation, Stories of the Hindu Mythics in which Yoga is rooted in, you can expect to learn a great deal of understanding around Yogaasanas, as well as learn about YOUrself! Alec is here to share with you, LOVELiFEyoga® at Reykjavikyoga! 

SATURDAY 10th of February 11am:

Please Join Guest teach Alec for a 90 navigation through some of your favorite and foundational yoga postures. This is a Hatha approach to at least a dozen of the most important postures you will experience in a normal vinyasa class. Create Stability In Stillness so there is integrity in your movement! You can expect to learn about your own personal patterns in the body, your obstacles, limitations, and limitlessness. With Alec's over half a dozen training and extreme Eye of Attention that his teacher, Eddie Modestini installed into him, Alec will offer a unique approach to practicing yoga and living yoga out in the real life. This Workshop will be different and is guaranteed to inspire you to practice daily, on the mat and off the mat. We will learn different techniques to postures you may know, integrate props into every posture, learn about meditation, some breathing techniques, and enjoy the company of one another. This is a workshop-style class, so your questions are encouraged!

February Guest Teacher

Dear friends, I happily introduce you to our February Guest Teacher, Leifur Wilberg. The dates of his classes are still to be announced.

Leifur started doing yoga regularly 10 years ago as a way to treat himself and calm down mind and body. In July 2016, he found a need to deepen his practice and understanding and went on and finished the 200 hrs yoga teachers training at the Indian Yoga and Meditation association in Risehikesh, India. He learned different yoga styles like Ashtanga Vinyasa, Hatha, Iyengar, Pranayama and meditation. Furthermore he did 10 days Vipassana Meditation course in Nepal and he likes to integrate that knowledge into his classes, which are mainly based on Vinyasa flow style, sometimes very relaxing and healing and at other times, acrobatic and challenging.

"It is amazing how yoga has changed my life to the better, its like the most important things in life, come automatically through the practice of yoga."

January offer!

Practicing Yoga and Meditation has led me to much healthier life choices, more connection with myself and deeper presence. It is not a quick fix nor the absolute solution but it is an amazing tool to keep in your toolbox for life. 

The decision to start a Yoga practice might be the best decision you will ever take. But be aware, life might never be the same! :-D

Christmas is upon us and your calendar is probably already filled with appointments with yourself and others - christmas lunch, christmas terminations, christmas shopping, christmas baking, christmas this and that. It's that time of year when we become so focused on DOING that we completely forget to BE and enjoy what already is - the beautiful lights, the seductive scents, being together with our loved ones and life's basic goodness.

This 2,5 hour yoga workshop invites you to tune your sensitivity towards your inner Self so that you'll become able to enjoy all the wonderful experiences that come with the Christmas season and at the same time be able to give the best of yourself to your dear ones.

The workshop begins with a warming creative vinyasa flow that brings us to love-enhancing backbends and deep releasing hip-openers. Expect practical nuggets from the Tantrik philosophy, some partnerwork, sweat and to have a great time. 

The workshop concludes with seated loving-kindness meditation and deep relaxation.

All levels are welcome.

Price: 4500 ISK

Sign-up: info@yogaplace.dk

Payment information provided upon sign-up.

Chakra time!

Dear friends, in the upcoming weeks we'll be working our way up the chakras, starting today focusing on the first chakra, the root chakra or Mulandhara. Our practice today and over the next two weeks will be on of grounding, but what does it mean to be grounded? It means simply to be able to be present in your own body, connected with the earth, allowing you to feel centered and balanced no matter what is going on around you. 

Looking forward to practice with you

October Guest Teacher: Klara Ka

I'm delighted to introduce to you Reykjavik Yoga Guest Teacher of October: The wonderful Klara Ka. Klara will be leading the Saturday morning class the 8th of October and more classes still to be announced. 

Klara started practicing yoga with her teachers at Himalaya yoga valley centre in Cork, Ireland in 2012 and has been dedicated to her practice since the very first class and she never looked back. Klara quickly realized that yoga wasn't just about the physical benefits, yoga left her feeling happier and more balanced. After two years of studying with Lalit Kumar and Lisa Fahy she was on the way to India to study the eight limbs of Ashtanga yoga with Lalit at his 200hr TTC in Himalaya yoga valley centre in Goa. Her love and respect for yoga deepened immensely during that month. Qualifying as a teacher was just a beginning of a lifelong journey for we are all forever students in this anscient science. Klara stayed in India for couple of months, exploring the aspects of meditation and ayurveda in the Himalayas and Rajasthan. She’s been sharing her practice ever since. She worked as a full time yoga teacher at a retreat centre in Siem Reap, Cambodia and then went on teaching at a women's spa in Kampot, Cambodia. Klara has an adventurous heart, she has been traveling the world for a decade but it feels like yoga gave her travels a different purpose. Regular practice keeps her grounded and balanced wherever she is and she feels very blessed to be able to share her love for yoga with others around the world. She moved to Iceland only recently and is delighted to be part of the amazing yoga community in Reykjavik. She feels honored to be teaching along great teachers at Yoga Shala and now being a guest teacher at Reyjavik yoga.

I'm incredibly happy about how many people are attending the Saturday morning Yoga classes at 11 am, not just only for the beautiful energy in the room, also because it is such an amazing way to start your weekend. At the moment they are the best sought classes and I love them because everyone come in that relaxed mode, ready for their time of self nurture. 

Today was no exception. Full class and great vibe.

Thank you amazing people for showing up. Namaste.
