The early mornings and evenings are turning darker, but the moments we share in the shala are becoming more and more magical, as more of you are coming, allowing your dedication and inner light to shine on. Thanks to your devotion, we have a lot of news for the coming months.

Never Mind the Mind - Meditation in Brief, November 24th 10-13.30

Yoga Lab with Stephan Pende Wormland

  • In yoga philosophy the practice of yoga is seen as a path to meditation, stilling the mind. On this path the techniques of yoga serve as a means to stabilize the body and sense organs and hence lead to a steady mind, cultivating the state of meditation.
  • In this workshop we'll have a close look at the art of looking inside and staying present in a seated meditation practice.
  • You'll learn uncomplicated techniques aimed at helping you create the space for more happiness and peace in your daily life.
  • Our teacher is Stephan Pende Wormland, from the Center for Visdom og Medf�lelse.

"Do or Do Not.. There Is No Try". Help Us to Help.


Yoda This time we're ending on a high note by quoting Yoda, the little green master of personal development and life wisdom, from Star Wars. One of his simple yet profound lessons is when Luke Skywalker complains "I can't believe it" and Yoda replies "That is why you fail".

With or without faith, we all know that smooth sailing without challenges is pretty rare. But, by making clear choices to do or not do something, and putting our full energy behind those choices, we are more likely to actually get things done, make a difference and succeed. This applies, for example, to the practice of yoga. "Do or do not...there is no try", quoting Yoda again.

Last but not least, tell us what would you like to have more, what less? What you are missing, what do we need to look at? This can be about the teaching, the schedule, hair dryers, tea selection, shala temperature, more Yoda, or anything. Email us or talk with us, we are here for you. We listen and we want to keep on growing together with you.


More news in November. In the meantime, keep practicing and see you at Dronning Olgas Vej 15!


Om, Mikko, Helena & Arna
