Led Class Ashtanga Yoga

This course requires previous experience in Ashtanga Yoga (either a beginners course, or at least attending a few classes), or you need to be a quick learner 😁. We do a quick repeat of the basic concepts during the first session, such as breathing technique, bandhas, dristi, vinyasa, and such.

Meet your teacher

Alex is a Swedish-speaking Finn who started to practice yoga at home in 2013, and has been practicing and teaching hatha and vinyasa yoga since 2014 (Seasonal Yoga). During the summer of 2015 Alex fell in love with the depth of the ashtanga yoga practice in 2015 with his teachers Petri Räisänen & Juha Javanainen from Helsingin Astanga Joogakoulu in their summer camp in Houtskari.

Since then Alex has been teaching over 4000 hours of yoga classes with a wide range of people, while managing Yogashala Raseborg, and has actively been practicing with different world renowned teachers on different workshop, such as Eddie Stern, Kino McGregor, Simon Borg-Olivier, and also online courses with David Garrigues.

“To me it’s important that the practices are taught in a safe, healthy and effective way for each student. As a yoga teacher it is important to understand that all people are different, and to embrace, or celebrate, the movement patterns of each individual.

In my teaching style you will learn to turn your senses inward (pratyāhāra), you will improve your focus and learn to practice to the rhythm of your own breath. The meditation and concentration makes the practice meaningful, and is a gateway to your inner dimensions. A yoga practice should be a practice in concentration and meditation. In ashtanga and hatha yoga we use our body to practice and achieve this.

We start simple, and the more you practice, the more you will learn at your own ideal pace while your body becomes stronger and softer, and your mind becomes more focused.”
