We offer courses in Yoga and Meditation taught in English in the city centre in Købmagergade 65, close to the Round Tower. Each class is composed as a harmonious sequence of different techniques. You will learn physical yoga exercises, breathing exercises, deep relaxation, concentration and meditation techniques.

Vasistha Jyoti from Scotland, and Gyanashakti from the UK, are teaching the English Yoga and Meditation classes.

Yoga and Meditation

Yoga is preparation for Meditation. In these classes you will see the connection and how you gradually come into a more relaxed and deep state.

We include yoga poses, breathing exercises, deep relaxation and meditation as parts of one whole.

You will gradually learn the various methods of Tantric Yoga and Meditation in a progressive course, leading to greater energy, clarity and peace in your daily life.


Morning Yoga

Starting at 7am – 8.30am, the class will give energy and calm to take with you for the rest of your day.

We also include more of the concentration exercise Tratak, where you gaze at the flame of a candle, improving eyesight.

Source of Energy

You are welcome to come the first time as an introduction and then decide if you want to join the course. Enroll here.

The meditation Source of Energy is based on a breath that releases tension and gives energy – and you gradually discover some of the body’s central energy currents and chakras. You also learn how to use a mantra that further deepens the practise and increases concentration.

Pregnancy Yoga

We also offer courses in pregnancy yoga. These are taught by experienced teachers; the classes will focus on poses and exercises that can support the changes and challenges relating to pregnancy.

Yoga for Companies

Yoga and meditation reduces stress and increases concentration. We offer classes to businesses where our teachers come to you, or you are welcome to come to our well equipped and spacious yoga rooms. We have taught large tech companies, CEOs and private classes tailored to meet different needs. Call or e-mail us to arrange classes or to find out more information.
