BKS Iyengar Yoga Studio Copenhagen
We are a well established yoga school situated by the lakes and “Dronning Louises Bro” overlooking the lakes. We have two beautiful yoga rooms and an inspiring Yoga scene for beginners and advanced students alike.
We only employ the best trained yoga teachers with years of experience and all teachers have international certificates in Iyengar®Yoga – your guarantee of good and high quality yoga lessons.
The school was founded in 1986 as Jette started YOGA I CENTRUM with two good colleagues in the same area of Nørrebro. Claus began as a teacher in 1989 and in 1991 we moved into the city center in “Fiolstrædet”. In 1995 we changed our name to the YOGA SCHOOL and then became entirely a school for Iyengar®yoga – simultaneously we also moved to the oldest part of the city in “Snarens quarter” in “Knabrostræde” and “Magstræde”. That was our location until it was time for us to open B.K.S Iyengar®yoga Center Copenhagen so on May 1st, 2009 we moved back to Nørrebro and our present location.
We might have the best location in the city on “Peblinge Dossering” in a historic building in the old “Church of Daniels” a former spiritualist church. Originally the industrial building housed “Java Coffee” in Copenhagen where the Java coffee beans were roasted and then driven out by horse-drawn carriage – so you might say that this place has always been a uplifting place. Today the coffee can be enjoyed at our neighbours either at “Kaffesalonen” or in the nice laid back basement cafe “Social” in no 4 which by the way also have great salads/sandwiches.
Whether the spirits from the former spiritualist church have started doing yoga or have gone elsewhere, we cannot tell :-)
Our classrooms are an experience in itself. Hall is the old church with 6 meters high ceilings and beautiful church windows ideal for yoga. On the first floor we have a smaller room with lake view, where you can experience to be in “Vrksasana” and look out over the lake with swans. In our high basement you will find the changing room and a large lounge area which creates a nice setting for our cozy Yoga space.
