The Thursday evening yoga class at the British School:
The British International School is located on Gauselbakken 107, Gausel (off the R44 between Forus and Hinna). The school has two buildings, a lower and an upper school building.
Parking is in the carpark between the 2 school buildings.
From the carpark walk to the upper school building towards the new grey part with the “British International School of Stavanger” sign on it. You are aiming for the top floor of this building. You will cross the playground of the upper school building diagonally towards the corner between the new and old buildings. There are metal gates there which will have been opened for you. These lead via a covered outside staircase to the balcony on the first floor of the school (old building). Walk up these stairs and at the top, you turn right and find the main entrance to the new part of the school. Once inside go up one more floor (by stairs or lift) and you will see the main room in front of you.

Grannes Grendahuset where the Tuesday and Wednesday yoga classes are held:
Grannes Grendahuset is located at the bottom of the Grannesbakken. Technically it falls in the Sola commune, but physically it is next to Madlalia. You can either approach it from the uphill side (opposite the UIS university) or from the downhill side (close to the fjord).
From the uphill side: The top entrance of the Grannesbakken is off the Kristine Bonnevies vei, opposite the UIS carpark. Going down the road from there you will find the Grendahus at the bottom of the hill on your left. There are 2 barnehages on that side of the road, one next to the other. Turn off the Grannesbakken, up the steep entrance road between the 2 barnehages. The Grannes Grendahus is attached to the Grannes Barnehage on your left. Park in the lot at the top of the entrance road and walk further up the path towards the entrance of the Grendahus straight ahead.
From the downhill side: The bottom of the Grannesbakken runs out onto the Madlaveien, the part between the roundabout at the bottom of the Kristine Bonnevies vei and the Hafrsfjord. Turn off here and follw the road towards the hill. Once you have passed through the new housing estate, on your right you will see a street sign Radioveien. There you turn left up the hill (Grannesbakken) and very soon you will find the Grannes Barnehage sign on your right. There are now 2 barnehages one next to the other. It is a steep entrance road between the 2 barnehages up to the parking area at the top left.The Grannes Grendahus is attached to the Grannes Barnehage. From the carpark you walk uphill following the little road through the open gates and straight ahead at the top you will find the entrance to the grendahus.
Parking! There is limited parking when you drive up to the Grendahus. Above the Grendahus on the same side of the road there is a row of parking spaces opposite the houses. A small path leads you from there down to the hall of the Grendahus. A third option is up (a little) further from the Grendahus on the opposite side of the road. The road off there is called Granneslia and you will find another small public carpark. Use the same small path down to the Grendahus. After 17.00 it is permitted to park along the Grannesbakken itself.

When driving with the Hafrsfjord on your left (from Sandnes/Forus/Sola), pass Møllebukta and the 3 swords (same route as if you are driving to the ISS) until you come to a crossroads. Turn right, past the café Surf-In, and up Snorresgate. Drive to the top of the hill (past one turning right, Ragnhildgate) and at the top, keep right into Åsta Kongsmorsgate. No.7 is 250m down on the right; it is painted white and has a row of large boulders as fence.
When driving down Madlamarkveien (either way from Stavanger or from Sandnes), find Madlamark Church (modern, red brick with tower) and at the roundabout, turn downhill into Åsta Kongsmorsgate. Coming from Stavanger, the turn is to the right, coming from E39/Sandnes/Hillevag, the turn is to the left. Follow the road down, past a road to the left (Nygaardsbakken), then after about 250m, come to the white painted house with a row of large boulders.
From the direction of the ISS, head towards the 3 swords until you pass the military school on the left (Madlaleire), on Regimentsveien.
