About Us

new studio doorWelcome to Yoga Roots, we just moved to a beautiful location in the new development of Sorgenfri in central Malmö.

We offer a variety of classes – from different styles of yoga, to pilates and barre classes. We are also one of the only studios in Sweden to offer Aerial Yoga classes, and are so excited to share our different concepts with you – all in one location in Malmö. Our goal is to provide a full body & mind health experience – where you can sweat one day, and then relax and rejuvenate your mind and body on another.

The studio is run by two international women, Bethany & Tess, and all classes are taught in English. We are so proud to be the only purely international yoga studio in Skåne.  Are you an expat or an international yogi looking for a second home? We hope you find a home in our international community here 🙂

Everyone is welcome at the studio – no matter your experience or background. Warm welcome to our new space.

Malmo_12Tereze fell in love with movement and the construction of the body at the age of six. She was playing tennis, dancing and swimming every day of the week. Tereze discovered yoga for the first time when she was fifteen. It was the beginning of the longest love story of her life and she has been inseparable ever since.
