About Laruga 

Since a young age, Laruga has been fascinated with mind/body connections and spiritual philosophy which later attracted her to the practice of yoga in early 1996 after a sincere connection and study of yoga philosophy. It wasnʼt until she stumbled upon Ashtanga Yoga when she fully immersed herself into a devoted practice a few years later in 1998.

Since then, she has continued to draw inspiration from her daily visit to the mat, along with long term studies with her teachers, the late Sri K. Pattabhi Jois, and now his grandson R. Sharath Jois, of Mysore India. An advanced level practitioner and student of yoga, as well as, a Level 2 Authorized Teacher from KPJAYI of Mysore, India, Laruga entered into teaching after many years of sustained practice and brings with her over 20 years total experience instructing body movement. In turn, she is dedicated to teaching the method of Ashtanga yoga to its fullest capacity, cultivating transparency to the tradition, and the deeply rich lineage the practice originates, otherwise known as parampara.

Through it all, Laruga teaches as an act of deep sharing and love for what yoga develops in each individual; facilitating space to open, challenge, and inspire those to step into the center of their own being, and experience their inherent potential.

Currently Laruga heads the Mysore program at Yogayama in Stockholm, Sweden and teaches workshops and retreats internationally.


Fredag 18. august 

18.00-20.30  Led Primary Series. Led Primary series is traditionally counted (in Sanskrit) in a rhythmic fashion to invoke a sense of flow and concentration as we breathe and move in a unified manner. This will be a Full Led Primary Series class from start to finish in celebration and honor of the immeasurable lineage of Ashtanga yoga. However, the class is still sutiable for all levels. If you are not used to practise the full Primary Series you can sit down and watch from where you usually stop, or you can have fun exploring new asanas. Just to be a part of the energy and flow a class like this will provide, is a great experience no matter what level you practise on. Time will also be taken afterwards for discussion and Q&A.

Lørdag 19. august 

09.00-11.00 Mysore style self practise. All levels welcome.

11.00-12.00 Lunsj. Nyt medbrakt eller spis herlige økologisk lunsj på Sødahlhuset, kafeen ved siden av studioet. Romsdal yoga serverer te, frukt og nøtter.

12.00 – 14.30 Vinyasa Integration
In this workshop special attention will be focused on moving with conscious awareness, in union with conscious breath, otherwise known as vinyāsa. Trouble shooting areas of instability that may be present, you will delve more thoroughly into how to build strength, with care and attention, building upon internal alignment. Focused points of attention will include practical application of Tristhānam (posture, breath, gaze) into each movement, promoting a calm center and accessing sense withdrawal, known as pratyāhāra. Learn to activate and open the energy channels of the body without strain. Discover balance, support and integrity in strength-based postures such as techniques for jumping back and jumping through as well as structural breakdown of challenging poses and transitions.

Søndag 20. august 

09.00-11.00 Mysore style selv practise. All levels welcome.

11.00-12.00 Lunsj. Nyt medbrakt i studioet. Romsdal yoga serverer te, frukt og nøtter.

12.00 – 14.30 Backbending with Ease: Liberate the Spine
The paradox of backbending is that we must be firm and soft at the same time, uniting the energy of strength and surrender. Learn the basic components of backbending with integrity to the natural flow of the body. In addition, learn to understand the concept of active release. When actively releasing, we experience the use of grounding mechanisms to establish the downward flow of energy while fully utilizing the breath to then be able to expand and deepen. In this workshop learn the foundational techniques that allow the body to find its depth and strength while at the same time letting go. For all levels.
