The new program is up. Enjoy!
Hello dear Funcsters!
We are working hard to get the new release together and if everything goes as planned then we have it filmed by next weekend (20.09). I (Jocke) will film it and post it online and share the link with trainers. Trainers who are interested of organizing a new program launch in their club with me, please contact me directly.
I wanted to do the basic course already this month, but that was not possible because of some program development work I needed to do before hand. Now, it's gradually coming together and those who are interested of getting involved, should again contact me directly.
YOGAFLOW seems to be much more than I initially planned it would be. I thought of it as a tool to be used with personal clients and as a similar product like YOGAFUNC, just one step towards a real yoga concept, like a product between YOGAFUNC and ashtanga yoga. This is not what it is going to be like. It's more like a yoga concept with its own philosophy. Not philosophy like in a traditional sense, but something else that I can't really even describe yet. I have tried to write this text for couple of weeks already but it has been impossible to do and it still seems to be so. :)
I will try to open the concept up a little in my personal site, to explain the whole idea of the concept and its relationship to life and the world we live in. I can't do it shortly here, but after I post this, I will start writing it and when I'm done, I will share the link here and in our FB page. I just wanted to let you know that the concept is still being developed and I'm actually very very very... excited about it. I will go do a two day workshop in Rakvere tomorrow and YOGAFLOW is the heart of that whole workshop. Join us if you want.
Come and try out our new class concept, YOGAFLOW. The class will be held in Ashtanga Yoga School of Tallinn, Koidu 122. This class is suitable for all levels.

We have some innovative thoughts regarding YOGAFUNC and especially the videos of the classes.
To make our creative ideas a reality, we need some help. If you are a YOGAFUNC fan and a professional software programmer, you could become our partner. If you want to know more about the idea, please contact us through our contact page.
We are getting started with the Funcitup Lab again, but tonight's YOGAFUNC nano and prana classes are cancelled. Come try the new YOGAFUNC program with Julia this Wednesday.
Jocke here, Hi! :) It was a year ago, when I announced that I will stop doing YOGAFUNC and only focus on ashtanga yoga. Now I'm here to tell you that I'm coming back.
I started YOGAFUNC almost three years ago because I wanted to find a way how to use my creativity, a way that I hadn't found in my role as a yoga teacher, in our yoga school. This year that I was away, just helping out Sven and Julia with the new releases, was nice but I have become very aware of the fact that I miss the creative aspect of the work I used to do with YOGAFUNC. When I don't use my creativity and the potential that I have (I do believe I have some :)), I feel like the energy in my body doesn't move properly and I start to experience real physical symptoms like tightness and pain. Every time when I start to use my creativity again, I feel like energy starts to move and I become more alive. (This might be interesting for any of you, who might be experiencing the same...start creating something, it might help.)
So what happens in the future?I'm not quite sure yet. :) I haven't had the possibility to discuss everything with Sven and Julia, but I know I will be more involved with the creation of the programs. I will also be educating instructors and maybe do some classes in events. I will not be teaching regular classes because I'm still focusing on my own ashtanga yoga practice. I'm very grateful for the work Sven and Julia has done and I'm really looking forward to working with them to make YOGAFUNC even better than before.
So if you have any questions about the future, don't hesitate to contact me jocke[at]funcitup.com.
I hope to see you all of you in our future program launches and educations.
Keep funcing it up!

The initial plan was to have the instructor education this weekend, but because Ashtanga Yoga School of Tallinn is moving out from the rooms in Tartu maantee, we had to move it to a later time. The goal is to arrange the education in our new rooms in the beginning of September. In any case, the education will be held early september, so that new instructors can get busy with it in the start of the season. If that is your plan, make sure you visit YOGAFUNC classes actively now, before we do the education.
More info coming as soon as we have it.
Many people are asking if there will be another basic education and if yes, when.
Yes, if there is enough demand, I will do it and the best time would probably be in August. If you are interested of this education, please let me know by commenting below. I will decide the more accurate dates in a few days time.
