“What a glorious week full of relaxing yet deeply working yoga sessions, forest walks, swimming in the lake, laughing, singing and smiling. A beautiful group led by a sincere and inspiring teacher – combined with the perfect location to enjoy nature and delicious food. I felt nourished in every way afterwards! Thank you.” – Morag, Malika Riddet, Relaxed yoga week 2015
If you’ve never taken a Samayoga class or retreat with Sky, then this will be a welcome gift. “He sensed my needs and delivered just what i wanted” is a common feeling among Sky’s students. Samayoga is a wonderful middle way and closest to Hatha yoga flow style, that offers clear guidance through all aspects of yoga and each session is tailored to meet the students where they are at. Some classes will be primarily focused on relaxation poses with special guidance on how to feel and release holding patterns. Other classes will be more invigorating and challenging, but with Sky’s help it can be highly enjoyable, flow easily and very accessible to all levels of experience.

“I am truly hooked on Sky. Not for his unique and very balanced yoga. Not for his way to get a group of people that don´t know each other to show so much love and compassion. Not for his wisdom, not for his playful and funny way of expressing things and not for getting people to find the best in them selves. I am hooked on him because he knows how to do it all.” – Peder Carlsson, Relaxed yoga week 2015
Sky is dedicated to living a life of yoga, and since 1991 has studied and taught several styles of yoga, always coming back to the simple and deep principles in the tradition of Hatha Yoga. Gracefully incorporating wisdom from Qi Gong, Ayurveda and Bhagavat Gita (yoga shastra) into his classes gives his delivery a certain integrity and well-rounded approach.
Sky has studied Vedanta since 2001 with Swami Vagishananda and Swami Dayananda, giving a good grounding in the purpose and practices of Yoga as a way of achieving balance, harmony and total fulfillment in this life.
His classes are always spontaneous and deeply honoring of his students. As he says, “I’m like the milkman, I just deliver the milk, fulfilling the sacred and even unspoken orders of the students.” Taught with relaxed passion, humor and clear understanding of the poses and their benefits, one finds his unique classes inspiring and rewarding.
Sky is the main teacher during the education and teaches about 70 % of the classes.
Sanna Jonsson has always had a deep passion for growth and has been committed to a daily practice of yoga & meditation since she was 16. Her interest spans over all the aspects of yoga including Advaita Vedanta (self knowledge, what gives happiness and peace), Sanskrit, traditional Chanting & Ceremony as well as Yoga shāstra.
Her name is very appropriate, it means “truth”, which has been her motivation and goal for as long as she can remember. She radiates an honesty and openness that invites immediate comfort and trust in all her students and clients. On the teacher training she offers personal life coaching
Sanna brings a cheerful and dedicated presence to the courses which really supports everyone, especially the students in their processes. From her diverse background, which has included engineering, animals, physically challenged children, sports competition and extensive travels among other things, she has gained a deep humility and respect for each individuals journey and the ability to inspire and uplift whoever she meets.
