Malmö may be a small city, but it’s big on yoga, with plenty of studios offering classes. And because of the multi-cultural nature of the city, there’s a huge variety of yoga styles to choose from. Here are ten of the best yoga studios in the city.
Offering fun and varied hot yoga, Hot Yoga Malmö delivers classes that are accessible for beginners, as well as more challenging tuition for the advanced yoga practitioner. The studio is very keen on making yoga available to everyone, regardless of their age or physical condition; the teachers here particularly like to get their hands on couch potatoes.
This yoga and pilates studio offers a massive range of yoga, pilates, barre, and other classes, so you can try something different nearly every day of the month. Instruction is in Swedish, but they’re happy to speak English to you individually if you need it.
Medborgarskolan literally means ‘People’s School’, and these schools are all over Sweden, offering inexpensive classes taught by experts. In Malmö, Medborgarskolan offers regular yoga classes that focus on the health benefits of the practice, as it’s a Swedish priority to keep the population healthy.
This non-profit has been going for more than 20 years, since before yoga enjoyed its recent surge in popularity. The school focuses on self-development, putting the emphasis on individual transformation.
Located in the heart of Malmö, Yoga Kendra offers a wide variety of yoga classes and meditation. They offer drop-in classes for 75 SEK, or a two-week tryout for 395 SEK. Private classes are available, and they’re happy to instruct in English.
Teaching classic yoga and tantric meditation, this studio ignores new trends and styles, and goes right back to basics. Classes range from beginner to advanced, and the studio has Malmö’s longest yoga lessons, ranging from two to 15 hours.
If you’re new to yoga, this might be the studio for you, as they offer regularly scheduled beginner classes, as well as pregnancy yoga. But that doesn’t mean more advanced practitioners are squeezed out, as there are plenty of classes on offer at all levels.
Yoga Shala Malmo offers classes in Iyengar Yoga for both beginners and more experienced practitioners. Iyengar Yoga is a powerful form of yoga that emphasizes the balance between strength and flexibility, builds endurance, and develops self-awareness. Located in central Malmö, this is where your heart meets your mind.
This Swedish–Italian concept combines business with pleasure. Owner Franco Manfrinato launched his wellness practice in 1994, and today the studio offers not just excellent classes, but also yoga, food and wine tours to Italy. The focus is on well-being, with highly trained instructors.
The focus here is on the big picture in yoga, for those interested in growing as a person and finding self-actualisation. The classes weave yoga with philosophy and psychology, and offer practitioners the chance to gain new insights and wisdom.
This international Yoga and Pilates studio is perfect for travellers. Why? All classes are taught in English and this is the only purely international yoga studio in Skåne. While the central location is great for convenience the space is cosy – a bit of an oasis from the busy streets outside. Yoga, Pilates, and Barre are among the offerings, as well as retreats and workshops.
