Yogayama Is

The Yogayama school is a place where interested yogis are given a possibility to work with their own development.

Yogayama started in Stockholm in 2004 and was Scandinavia’s first yoga center. Through the years, Yogayama has built up a renowned yoga center with a wide variety and a large number of classes with well educated teachers and guest teachers/speakers from all over the world. In 2012, Yogayama released a 200h Yogayama Teacher Training and is today a solid international yoga teacher training with several hundred graduates. In 2014, Yogayama took the next step and became a Yoga Allance certified 500h Yogayama Teacher Training.
Yogayama is owned by Helena Ekström, Estelle Nordenfalk and Yogayama Partner Sweden which is a company own by our members, staff and other supporters of what we do.

Our Philosophy

We want to sow the seeds of a yogic lifestyle. These seeds will likely grow differently in each of us. Whichever way your seeds grow, we hope you find your center, your innermost essence and allow a little more space for it in your everyday life.

We intend to be true to Essence

We believe in bringing holistic health practices as true to their original Essence as possible. We invest heavily in selecting experienced... teachers who have trained directly at the lineages’ sources to ensure that the essence and philosophy of those teachings are as pure and unaltered as possible. We also support our teachers to receive ongoing training in order to ensure the quality of our teachings. We believe in bringing in teachers who embody the essence of yoga. Our teachers are humble, strong, and committed to supporting students in their development towards deepening in their authenticity.

We honor Commitment

We believe in a lean-in attitude, the discipline, and effort needed to willingly develop and evolve oneself. We appreciate the commitment ... involved in living as each of our authentic selves. Whether you are just starting your journey or have been on it for many years, we are honored to support you on your path as fellow travelers and practitioners. Our intention as practitioners is to commit and recommit each and every moment to bringing out the yoga within us and support you in doing so as well through all the flavors and textures of our unfolding lives.

We give Space for you

We also strongly believe in providing practice environments that are as approachable as possible. From the interior environment of our....... studios, to the way we run our classes, to the ingredients we use in our Ayurveda treatments and products, we ensure that we present the essence of these ancient traditions so that you have room to incorporate them in your life and bring your unique expressions to the practices.

Our Values

(“Ahimsa” in the yogic tradition, “Metta” within Buddhism)

Loving kindness means compassion, passion for all. For us it is a sense of consideration that permeates into everything we do. We consider life as precious and we treat all things with care. We pay attention to our guests’and students’ needs and are motivated to serve them in the best way possible. Love and kindness inspires us, simply because we feel that is what matters most in life.

In practice it is to connect with our hearts and treat ourselves and others with care and respect. It is to be aware that every action born out of compassion makes a difference and serves humanity. Loving kindness is what helps us to live more fully and happy without causing harm to anyone or to the environment.

Relaxed Creativity – Use your energy with care (Brahmacharya)

Relaxed creativity is about spontaneity and doing what we love. For us it is to promote health and well being, by offering a variety of yoga styles, fresh organic food and holistic body treatments. We are simply devoted in creating a more balanced, nourishing and sustainable lifestyle for people of all ages, backgrounds, and walks of life.

In practice it means to open to possibility, relaxing into the creative flow of life, beyond the limitations we impose upon ourselves. To moderate our energy, to live with ease, just enjoying being who we are, unique expressions of infinite potential. Relaxed creativity is to be aligned with life, which comes naturally when we follow our hearts and give into our passions.

Natural Generosity (Aparigraha)

Natural generosity is to be in service of others and to give for the joy of giving. We believe that we are all generous in our nature and as much as we need to go within, we also need to reach out. Therefore we have established a yoga center for people to come together to enrich one another and to discover new possibilities in creating a more conscious world.

In practice it is about sharing our dreams, passions and talents, reaching out in friendship and goodwill. It is about embracing the gifts we all share, celebrating each other’s unique qualities that contribute to the greater good. Natural generosity brings new meaning to our relationships so we can live together in joy, love and peace.

Genuine Sincerity (Satya)

Genuine sincerity is about living authentically. We believe the path of yoga begins with honesty and integrity. To us it is an essential way of being that not only allow us to be humble and open, but also creates trust, leading to worthwhile relationships. Truthfulness is what sustains our thoughts, words and actions harmoniously through daily encounters with our customers.

In practice it means to be present and open to life as it is. This is where we can learn and grow in awareness, finding clarity and peace as we unite with our true nature. Genuine sincerity is to be a light to ourselves, through honest reflection, bringing our insights off the mat into everyday living.

Elegant Simplicity (Asteya)

Elegant simplicity means not taking more than we need and focusing on what is truly important. From the excellence in teaching to the quality of our food service we take every detail into account. Ultimately we want our customers to feel inspired spending time here, creating an inviting space that unities both simplicity and elegance

In practice it is to let go of habits that no longer serve us, so we can focus our energy on what brings real joy and satisfaction. There is beauty in simplicity as we move through life with ease and grace. Elegant simplicity is liberating discovery, when letting go of excess, we can then experience the exhilaration of each moment.

Det finns bara en yoga. I augusti lanserar vi våra egna Yogayama klasser, som är utvecklade och framtagna av Yogayamas internationella yogateam.

Vi har inte skapat en ny typ eller stil av yoga, utan en sekvenserad klass som är utformad för att eleverna ska få en djupare upplevelse av yogans helhet. Det ger eleverna möjlighet att växa inte bara i sin fysiska träning utan också att utvecklas mentalt genom pranayama och meditation.

Yogayama är Skandinaviens största yogaskola. Vår målsättning är att skapa en plats för individuell utveckling som inspirerar, stärker och berör. Här ger vi dig utrymme att växa och utvecklas. Vi har ett brett och noga utvalt utbud av klasser, yogalärarutbildningar, workshops, kurser och events. Vi ser fram emot att ta hand om dig på din yogaresa! Mer info kommer i augusti.

Yogaklasserna finns from augusti på Yogayama Östermalm. I våra studios i Norrköping, Göteborg och Sjöstaden kommer klasserna lanseras i början av 2019.
