Ashtanga Yoga at Atmajyoti in Stockholm
Scroll down the page to see all our Ashtangakurser.
Ashtanga yoga is a dynamic form of yoga that combines movement and breathing in an even flow. The founder of this form of yoga is Sri K Pattabhi Jois. Yoga positions follow a specific order (sequence) where each position is based on the previous one. You learn over time to follow the sequence as your breath, following your circumstances and safely to your body.
A daily practice, with awareness, build a stable and strong foundation that becomes a secure base from which you can release tension in the body and mind and get to know yourself. Our goal is that you will feel calm and safe on the carpet and in the yoga room.

Mysore Style For those of you who have gone Ashtangayoga 1, 2 or Ashtanga Mysore before. Here we follow the Ashtanga yogan sequence with your breath, and based on your circumstances, as far as you are introduced to by your teacher. In the beginning, the focus most be on memorizing the order. The yoga in silence and move in step with your own breath makes it possible for you to listen inward to your personal experience. This is the traditional way to exert Ashtanga yoga. The name comes from the city of Mysore where the founder Sri K. Pattabhi Jois started it all.
The teacher will help you with the technology and adjustments in the positions. Utilities such as blocks, strap and blankets are used when necessary to safely carry positions. Here, we continue to explore more of the sitting and finishing positions, such as shoulder stands and head stand.
