Learning to be present through a focus on breath and body helps to allow the mind a much needed chance to rest. The class will encourage deep relaxation and increased mindfulness through an exploration of internal focus. No experience necessary. Booking Essential
Our first Ashtanga Class
Friday’s 6-7pm Calton Centre
Based on the Ashtanga Primary Series this flow class will build stamina, flexibility and strength through a fast paced and dynamic class finishing with a well-deserved deep relaxation to leave you refreshed, energised and ready to start the weekend. Not suitable for absolute beginners.
Lunchtime Yoga Basics Class
Thursday’s 12.00-1.00pm The Healthy Life Centre
A second lunchtime class added to the timetable for those who like to sneak their practice in during the day.
In our mission to offer yoga to everyone, we are delighted to have been working with the lovely ladies of Link Up; a local organisation offering support to women who suffer with mental health problems and social isolation.
We are also honoured to be running weekly yoga classes at The Hive; a day centre for inpatients situated within the Royal Edinburgh Hospital, an acute psychiatric and mental health service.
This month we enjoyed a class at the local Hibbs stadium, Easter Road with the Hibernian's Football Fans In Training group as part of their twelve week loose weight, get fitter and be healthier programe at the Hibernian Community Foundation.
We have also been offering yoga and meditation classes to participants of the NHS funded twelve week absinence programme LEAP (Lothian and Edinburgh Abstinence Programme).
With your continued support we will be able to share the gift of a regular yoga practise with those who arguably need it most.
