Before and in the yoga room
Leave your shoes at the entrance and your clothes in the dressing room. Do not take the bags in the yoga room. You can take out valuables and bring in and put it in the white cabinet right cover inside the yoga hall. Turn off the cell phone completely alt. put it on “flight mood”, don’t put on “mute” (it still hearable). Remember to keep a calm and quiet environment in the yoga hall, if you need to talk to the neighbor on the carpet next to yours, do it with a soft and pleasant voice.
Term cards, monthly- and clip cards
Show your card at the reception. If reception is unattended, put your card next to the yoga mat so that the teacher can register the payment for your yoga class, alternatively, ensure that it is checked in after the class.
If you would be late for class, enter as quietly and calmly as possible in order not to disturb the ongoing yoga class.
Wear comfortable workout clothes and be barefoot. Remove heavy or tight jewelry.
Food & beverages and yoga
Don’t eat a big meal closer than two hours before the yoga session. If you are very hungry, you can eat some fruit, or some other easy food. Remember not to drink too much water before or during the yoga session. It is also recommended to wait a while to eat and drink after the yoga.
We have mats for rent at 20 SEK/class. On Prenatal Yoga, Mother -Baby Yoga, Childrenss Yoga, Yoga and Mindfulness, Senior Yoga and Ashtanga yoga for beginners, we do not charge a mat rent.
If you practice often with us, you can leave your mat here. The mat must be put one of the shelves outside the ladies changing room or in the men’s locker room. The mat must be marked with your name. If you do not have your own mat, we have several yoga mats for sale.
We have one for ladies and one for men. Both with toilets and showers.
Allergies & hygiene
In order to respect the allergies we ask you to avoid strong perfumes, both before class and in the locker room. Please also make sure you and your yoga clothes are clean and intact. Take a shower or wash yourself even before the session. Clean feet are important if you intend to borrow our yoga mats. Clean the loan carpet with a cleaning spray that we have placed near the borrowing carpets.
Menstruation & pregnancy
During menstruation you should take it easy the first few days because it is an energy- demanding period for the body. If you are pregnant, you should not go to any of our regular classes, but you are welcome to our prenatal yoga classes.
Mother & Baby
Bring a blanket for the baby and little toys to look at when you do the yoga. In the beginning, it may feel unfamiliar with the environment, remember to always go out with your baby if it cries, both you and the baby will get used to the class and environment after a few times. Thank you for taking the child’s diapers with you when you leave.
Registration & Payment
When you sign up over the internet, you will receive an email with an electronic invoice that you also easily can print. Once you register over the Internet and paid, you are automatically registered for the course. If the course already is full you can’t book it.
When you pay from abroad;
Please write your name and what course it is.
Missed training sessions
If you miss your course time one week (or more), you can at any time take an other class within the period that the course runs. You can not ‘move over’ missed classes from one semester to another.
If you become ill for a long time and have a doctors certificate confirming this, you can freeze your card / course and compensate during the next coming term. This only applies if you inform us immediately when the period of sick leave begins. We do not approve of a notification long time afterwards.
Food & talk
There is yoga porridge (buck wheat) breakfast on weekdays, but not during the summer schedule June 19-Aug 20. In the kitchen, you can feel at home, take yourself what you want, you pay in the reception. You are welcome to sit down, have a cup of tea and just soak up the cozy atmosphere. Please talk too, but please be mindful as it is often ongoing yoga classes.
Be sensitive to how you feel. Never perform yoga under the influence of alcohol or other drugs. If you take any medication you may be happy to consult with your yoga teacher or doctor about combination medication/yoga. When performing yoga you will meet happiness and well-being but also sometimes resistance and fear. If you become emotionally involved during or after a yoga class, please feel free to talk with your teacher about it afterwards.
At Atmajyoti we practice Ashtangayoga according Sri K. Pattabhi Jois tradition. According to this tradition, we do the Ashtanga sequence in line with our own breathing. We memorize the order and learn the names of all asanas. We do not take new positions when we want, without waiting until the teacher shows us the next asana. Need to modify an asana, ask your teacher. Do you feel unsure of the order in the sequence ask the teacher.
You are also welcome to come and do Hatha, Yin or Restorative at our Mysore/self -practice classes.
Please listen in to how you feel each day. Let the breath be your guide. Respect your limits. Carry your yoga practice with respect for yourself and for your environment. Always have your own yoga mat with you. We also recommend that you have a soft mat to you put on the yoga mat when you start the seated asanas. According to tradition, we don’t practice Ashtanga yoga on Moon-days or during the first 3 days when you’re menstrating. We are, however, open on Moon-days but we practice lighter on these days. Here you find the moon days for 2016
