Start, or develop your yoga practice with an experienced teacher

A good place to begin your yoga journey, and also a nice course for experienced yogis to deepen their practice and understanding of yoga, asana and life.

During this course you will practice yoga postures to the rhythm of your own breath (vinyāsa). The classes always includes: back bending, forward folding, twisting, internal massage, deep focus & concentration, turning your senses inward, standing asanas, reclined asanas, seated asanas, inverted asanas, breathing control / pranayama.

We practice a selected set of asanas from the primary series, and add poses from the intermediate series. These classes are poplar amongst people who have limited time, or a desire to break out of the rigorous monotony of the daily Ashtanga routine. 

As an “expert” in knee pain (at least in having knee pain 😄), Alex always makes sure you will get stronger knees in each class, and keep your knees and joints as safe as possible.

Increased metabolism

You will get warm during the practice. Usually these practice increase the digestive power and have a purifying effect on the whole body. Please practice on an empty stomach if possible. Do not have a big meal right before practice.

Increased health and wellbeing is a common side effect of a regular practice. Usually you can see a change in your bodily functions, sleeping patterns, increased strength and flexibility already after a few months of practice, and a calmer nervous system.

For whom?

  • For anyone who wants a calm, yet challenging led yoga class for rejuvenation.
  • For complete new yogis who wants to learn to practice yoga step-by-step.
  • For yogis who have had a break from practice, and wants to start gently.
  • If you do not know where to start with yoga – this is an excellent choice, as you will be given the best of all yoga worlds!
Trikonasana – Triangle Pose. Strengthening for internal back muscles, and to some degree hip opening. A fundamental standing posture (you will come to learn that this is Alex’s favourite ;)).

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 in Helsingin Astanga Joogakoulu in their summer camp in Houtskari (Petri Räisänen & Juha Javanainen). Since then Alex has been teaching over 3000 hours of yoga classes with a wide range of people, while managing Raseborgs Yogaskola, 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 certain yoga postures and practices are simply not suitable for everybody.

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 bodies 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.”

FOR WHOM – KENELLE – FÖR VEM?

This course is for anyone who wants to learn to practice yoga without watching videos on youtube, and open up for a spiritual practice.

You do not need to be strong or flexible to join, but your body will become softer and stronger. Saying that you are not strong or flexible enough for yoga is like saying you’re too dirty to take a shower.
