Urban OM is built on three pillars, Being in the Body, Being Real, Being Together. 

Being in the Body is an antidote to cure the modern phenomena of ‘disembodiment’ caused by urban overload. We emphasize cultivating sensitivity of both the physical as well as the subtle body by training stress reduction and interoceptive awareness.

Being Real enables development of a sense of self and to nourish the connection to truth that can cut through the illusion, dream and deception of the mind. Self-inquiry – honest introspection – is an ancient practice found in every spiritual tradition.

Being Together is a method of creating safe space to merge body and mind and to explore the magic of letting go into ‘something more’. We believe that alone you go fast but together we go far.

We offer more than 60 classes weekly taught by experienced teachers and facilitators. See our schedule here.

Please follow this link to read our terms about teaching at Urban OM. If you meet the qualifications we will get back to you if we have any openings.

Are you opened? What are my options to attend classes and which precautions should I be aware of?

  • Yes the studio on Wallingatan is opened with reduced hours and smaller classes to allow a safe distance between mats. 
  • We recommend you bring your own yoga mat. Studio mats are still  available but we request that you clean the mat before and after class, we provide a mat cleaning solution and paper towels. 
  • We removed all common props such as blocks, bolsters and blankets and recommend you bring a small blanket and or warm comfortable clothes that you can layer on for slower practices or for the end of more active practices practice.
  • You can borrow towels at the reception to use in class.
  • We also expanded our offerings to the digital dimension for those who choose not to  come to the studio.

All yoga is for everyone, but not all the time depending on your experience, state of health and type of mode. We have a large faculty of experienced teachers at Urban OM, with many different backgrounds and lineages in the path of yoga, therefore we have chosen to name our classes after intensity so that you can pick a class from what you need: anything from a strong class to relaxation.

However, some of our classes have specific names for a specific type of yoga, such as Kundalini, Acharya and Laya.

For first timers we recommend Basic classes and Beginners Courses, the Strong Flow Yoga can be extra challenging if you’re brand new to Yoga since the pace of the class is very fast.

All of our staff has been practicing yoga for years and have done our yoga teacher training, if you have any questions regarding class recommendations or teachers please ask at the front desk.

  • Yoga quiz: Get started with our quiz here.
  • Yoga description: Read more about each class here.
  • Experience vs Performance: Whether you practice yoga for calming your mind, stretching your hip flexors or balance on your arms do remind yourself on focusing on your experience rather than performance. We perform all the time, we actually don’t have to when practicing yoga.

 

Yes – all our meditations are held by experienced facilitators. Some meditations are guided through out, others will be introduced in the beginning of class. Read more about our different meditations here.

Yes – all our meditations are held by experienced facilitators. Some meditations are guided through out, others will be introduced in the beginning of class. Read more about our different meditations here.

Active meditations engage the body in a physical activity. The body is the part of ourselves that is always in the present moment whereas our mind constantly wanders between the past and the future, engaging the body helps bring the mind to the present moment. Different active meditations encourage either subtle movement or a challenging activity.

  • We recommend not to eat two hours before your class: Yoga and meditation is preferably practiced on an empty belly.
  • What to wear: Whatever you like, preferably in comfortable and stretchy clothes.
  • Yoga is practiced barefoot. We recommend you to take extra care of your feet in our foot bath before going to class.
  • Mats & props: We provide everything you need for class, but you’re welcome to bring your own mat if you’d like to. We provide showers, shower essentials and sauna, towels can be rented for 20 SEK.

If you are a regular student and have booked classes online, we ask that you arrive at least 10 minutes before the class starts so you have plenty of time to sign-in and get settled. Otherwise, for busy classes, if you have booked but not shown up 5 minutes before the class, we might need to allocate your spot to our waitlist.

If you need to cancel your booking, please do so at least 30 minutes before the class otherwise our late cancellation policy will apply.

Urban OM has no gracing period, to avoid disruption we do not allow latecomers into class after it has started no matter the reason for the lateness. This is to respect the students in the room as well as the teacher holding space.

What kind of yoga is this training?
This is a hatha yoga teacher training where the asana and pranayama are coming primarily from the Krishnamacharya lineage and philosophy mainly from Swami Dayananda’s commentary on the vedas. Our faculty are highly skilled trainers with roots in Ashtanga, Iyengar and Viniyoga.

There are so many programs on the market. Why should I join this program?
A well thought through teaching methodology combined with an eclectic group of highly skilled faculty allow you to develop your own personal style rooted in the ancient lineages carried by our expert trainers.

I have already completed a yoga teacher training. Will I still benefit from taking this one?
In yoga more is more. Learning yoga is a lifelong experience and this is an opportunity to deepen your learning even more. Our faculty are world class with over 100 years of combined experience from multiple yoga lineages. They bring wisdom and share their own insights and there’s always something you can learn when the time is right.

If I have an injury or limited range of motion, can I still join?
Tell us about it on your application and we will assist you with your concerns. We also recommend you consult your healthcare specialist with any concerns you may have before enrolling on the training.

Is there a payment plan available?
I do not have all the money needed. Yes, payment is made in stages.

What happens if I miss days or even a module, or get sick?
100% attendance is required to pass this course (but we do make exceptions, let us know if you need to miss a day or two and we can agree to this together) If you begin a training course, and cannot finish for whatever reason (we understand that things happen) we will not be able to refund your tuition or accommodation fees, however, we will allow you to transfer onto the next training course. In this case you would need to pay a 1000 SEK administration fee and any new accommodation costs.

How can I prepare myself for the course before it starts?
How much background reading do I have to do? Maintain a daily yoga practice – you will receive a membership to practice at Urban OM the moment you sign up. You’ll receive a reading list before the course begins and we recommend you spend your spare time immersed in yoga books.

Do I receive a training manual? 
Yes, you’ll receive a goodie bag including the manual the first day of training.

As a drop in visitor you register, book and pay directly at our website or through our app.
