Well-being, performance enhancement, healthy ageing and personal growth through science-proven breath-based practices
A (micro) yoga studio with you at the center
House of Breath is your space to decompress, recharge and move ahead. We offer science-proven breath-based practices to support your well-being, improve your performance, promote healthy ageing and help you become the best that you can be. We host yoga, relaxation and meditation sessions for all levels (from beginners to advanced) and all age groups.
House of Breath is an inclusive space where individual diversity is celebrated and where you will be encouraged to find your own way of practicing.
We are based in Malmö, where we teach in a teeny-tiny cozy space by Triangeln. We can also offer sessions in Southern Sweden / Copenaghen and online.
Yoga and breath
Yoga has been around for millennia and, today, there are so many different types of yoga. Our specific view is that yoga is a system of practices that put you in the right conditions to contemplate and appreciate (the beauty of) life. The most common of these practices are asanas (the physical exercises that you might have in mind when thinking about yoga), breathing techniques, meditation, visualisation and concentration exercises. When we teach, we refer to all these aspects; however, it is up to you, ultimately, to choose your own combination of practices.
Breath is a key aspect of our teaching. Breathing is so strictly connected to our most intimate states of being and, through breathing exercise, we can easily regulate and control our stress reactions and we can expand and enhance our positive emotional states. In our teaching, which combines traditional yoga (e.g., Krishnamacharya) and cutting-edge scientific research in mindfulness, breathing exercises are often intertwined with physical movements.
We have a foot in academia (one of us teaches at a Danish university) and we constantly look for scientific studies that assess the benefits brought by yoga and breathing techniques. The evidence provided by this research is so strong that today, the vast majority of healthcare professionals is convinced that yoga can significantly improve our quality of life.
Our bespoke and customised offering
We offer one-to-one session, meaning that in the session there will be just you and the teacher. We can also arrange sessions in which you come together with a friend. However, the entire idea of the yoga we teach is that it is personalized. Each of us has a different body structure: we have our own skeletal variation, a different level of flexibility. Perhaps we have different medical conditions and different reasons and goals connected to our yoga practice. We are, of course, at different stages in life, some of us are younger, some are older. All these factors should be taken into consideration when practicing yoga, meaning that the yoga that you practice should be adapted and personalized on your own specific needs and wants.
As such, our offering is very different from other yoga studios. With us, it is the yoga practice that gets adapted to you and not you who have to force your body into some predefined and fixed alignments. This also means that our practice is, really, for everyone. You don’t have to be particularly flexible to practice yoga with us.
In addition, we teach different types of yoga practices (e.g. breath-based hatha yoga, yin yoga, breathing exercises, meditation, etc.) and, together with you, we can choose the exact combination of practices that will provide you with the most benefits.
Our offering starts with a free one-hour consultation, either in person or online. If you decide to come to visit us, we will brew some good tea for you. The consultation is geared towards getting to know each other. As our approach is highly individualised, we think that it is very important that you feel entirely comfortable with the kind of yoga we teach and the way in which we teach.
After the free consultation, you can choose one of our packages:
A) Introduction to yoga
This package includes three individual (one-to-one) 1-hour sessions. After these sessions, you can already start practicing on your own and come by to visit us every now and then for some checkpoints and additional advice on how to keep improving your practice. The sessions can be in person at our studio or online.
Cost (3 sessions): 1450 sek, limited offer at a special price: 950 sek
B) Personalised yoga programs
If you get this package, we will create for you a personalised yoga program, based on your body type, age, lifestyle and on your needs and wants. Just as an example, we can create programs geared towards relaxation, healthy ageing, enhancing your vitality and natural beauty or improving your mood. If you are already a yoga practitioner, we can also work together on how to weave breath-based principles and techniques within your yoga routine.
Cost (3 sessions): 2400 sek, limited offer at a special price: 1900 sek
C) Single one-to-one sessions
Especially after having being introduced to our approach, you can always get single one-to-one sessions. Each session is 60 minutes and includes asana practice, breathing exercises and, if you so wish, guided relaxation and meditation. The sessions can be in person or online.
Cost: 590 sek, limited offer at a special price: 390 sek
D) VIbration and sound healing sessions
Sound Healing is a relaxing therapy that brings you inner harmony and rejuvenation. Our Tibetan singing bowls create soothing vibrations in the body, which is highly effective at addressing chronic stress and fatigue, and restoring your body and mind balance.

“I am very happy that the opportunity that led me to yoga at House of Breath was not accidental. I had been suffering from lower back pain for a long time due to a spinal hernia, and surprisingly, after the first session, I felt relief, the pain began to go away, life began to get colors again … I am still a beginner, but I have felt the effect of breathing and asanas on the quality of my life, there is inner calmness, energy charge, and quiet joy in the soul, and, most importantly, the pain goes away. The yoga instructor, Ella, is a wonderful person, professional, sensitive, caring, and attentive, explaining all the nuances in detail to get results. Special warmth and tenderness emanate from her. I am very grateful to Ella for her classes, for my new knowledge and my new outlook on life. Correct breathing, correct posture, and physical flexibility are important parts of our lives, and they will teach you this at House of Breath. Thank you endlessly, Ella, you brought joy back to my life!” – Siranush

“I wanted to say a special thanks to Ella for the sensitive and individual approach she surrounded me with during individual lessons. She is deeply involved during our class and explained in great detail how our body works, especially after a certain age. In my case, we performed asanas aimed at solving my specific problem. Ella was very helpful to explain on what I should focus on. In all my years of yoga, I have not received such satisfaction from the work of my body as from classes with Ella. I want to express my gratitude and recommend her class.” – Natalia
