Saturday classes rock!

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.

September Guest Teacher: Tómas

Tómas is the guest teacher of the month of September! He will be teaching on Saturday 17th and another class still to be announced. Tómas is a walking, talking ball of radiant light and those who have practiced with him know how present and brilliant he is as a teacher as well.

 Tómas Oddur Eiríksson has been a dedicated yogi since early 2010. His yogic journey began at Yoga Shala Reykjavík where he practiced Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga on a regular basis for several years. Tómas received influence from teachers such as Lawino María Johnson, Ryan C. Leier, Aaron Pitchinson at the time. After completing his initial yoga teacher training (Level 1, 200 hr.) with Ingibjörg Stefánsdóttir in 2012 he soon began teaching for her at Yoga Shala and all over Reykjavík. Teaching yoga, movement and meditation has been Tómas’s main occupation since then. The Icelandic Academy of the Arts, The Icelandic Dance Company, Kramhúsið, The Reykjavík Dance Atelier are among the places / organisations Tómas has been involved with. Tómas Oddur got into electronic dance music at the time which led him to found Yoga Moves. A dynamic vinyasa flow class with a DJ that later turnes into a free dance party followed by meditation. Tómas has held several bigger events both in Iceland and abroad under the same concept, with great success. In december 2014 Tómas went to Mysore, India to practice Ashtanga Yoga with Ajay Kumar and to complete his second training (Level 2, 300 hr) in Vinyasa Flow with Julie Martin and Emil Wendel at Brahmani Yoga, Goa. Being an explorer and adventurer at heart, Tómas did an undergraduate program in Human Geography (BSc) at the University of Iceland and completed in 2015.

I wish you a beautiful class!

Inspirational Julie Martin

I just spent 5 days in Stockholm in Julie Martin's workshop on Fascia, anatomy, meditation, freedom in movement and much, much more. Julie is a teacher who is constantly asking questions about how our yoga practice is serving us and how we can use it in our daily lives. She was the one that opened my eyes to how I could practice with more awareness and be in my own body. I'm really looking forward to share with you all what I've learned. 

Namaste to all

Forever student...

My and my mat just arrived here in Stockholm where we will be attending Julie Martin's 5 day intensive yoga workshop. I'm really looking forward to study some fascia and anatomy with her and to explore the freedom in movement that she teaches so brilliantly. I'm thinking we might not be using our mats that much :-D ... Looking forward to share it with you guys when I'm back in two weeks.

Meanwhile, Ása Sóley will be taking good care of Reykjavík Yoga's Vinyasa flow classes and I hope everyone will have a blast! 

Hej då!

Breathing time...

"You are always just one, deep breath away from this moment" - Waylon Lewis.

It can be incredibly healing to be able to connect to your breath. Today at Reykjavik Yoga, we will practice to become aware of the breath and to start to breathe more deeply. Join this sweet heart-opener Vinyasa-flow and feel a deep connection with your own body. 

See you on the mat at 5.30!

Yoga on Bank Holiday's Monday (Verslunarmannahelgi)

Dear all! If you're planning to stay in Reykjavík this weekend, Reykjavík Yoga's class on Monday is ON! We'll continue focusing on the breath as we move through our chest/shoulder opening Vinyasa-flow. Looking forward to see you there.

Have a beautiful weekend wherever your are.

Just breathe...

The breath lies at the centre of the yoga practice. For me, the awareness of the breath is what makes my practice. If it's not there I'm just doing a physical exercise. I will go as far as saying the awareness of the breath and linking it with movement and asanas is what makes yoga, yoga. In class I will explain why it makes all the difference. 

These two upcoming weeks are going to be even more breath-focused than usual, as we move through a deep, chest-opening Vinyasa flow, practicing the technique of the Ujjayi breath and synchronizing breath with movements.

So, just breathe...

See you on the mat at 5.30 tomorrow Monday, and Wednesday.

Namaste.

Do what you love...

I'm blessed to be able to work with two things I love: Yoga and graphic design/illustrations. Sometimes I even manage to combine those two. Neither feels like work, to the point I sometimes even forget to charge :-D

I just launched a new website after a looong time of having a non-updated website online, you know the saying: "You can tell a cobbler by his shoes"... Kind of like that. So I'm very happy that I finally managed to put it together! feel free to check it out: baddydesign.com

If we follow our passions we can't do no wrong.

It IS all about the journey...

I'm very much looking forward for the second round of Spiral Energy class today. We will be wrapping, twisting a turning, and remembering there is no final destination, no final pose. It is all about the journey, the transitions, the in-betweens. It is all about this moment. Stay present.

See you on the mat today at 5.30!

Spiral energy

Happy new week/new beginning everyone! I'm very excited about these two upcoming yoga weeks since we're going to be working with spiral energy. The human body is fundamentally built in spirals and our bodies move very comfortably with spiral motion. 

Continuous flow of energy is what we're aiming at! 

Join the spiral flow with Reykjavík Yoga at 5.30 at the Dance Atelier, Skúlagata 30, 2nd floor. See you on the mat!

Namaste.

   Spirals are found everywhere in the nature, and in the human body.
