Free Open Air Yoga Saturday 9th June 10.30am

Following the success of our Open Air Yoga class last summer, we are thrilled to bring you another Free Open Air Yoga class at Conference Square this year! We will open up the large sliding doors to our studio and you can choose if you’d like to practice inside, or out in the square in the open air if you prefer. Bring water, sunscreen and warm layers with you to make sure you are prepared for our Scottish summer weather! The Yoga class is suitable for all levels* and will include a standing, balancing and floor sequence. The teacher will give clear instructions and offer modifications so that each student can find their own maximum stretch. Lululemon will be supporting us at this fun event and will bring a Capsule collection of their latest Yoga wear, so feel free to check out their stand at the studio after class. We expect this Open Air class to be very popular, but please don’t worry that you won’t get a spot, or that you won’t be able to see or hear. Conference Square can easily accommodate everyone who attends, and there is even a large under-cover area in case it rains. We will have a PA system to ensure everyone can hear the teachers instructions, and will have several teachers demo-ing the poses. We have a limited number of mats available for use, but please do bring your own if you can (you could bring your spare mat too, and offer it to someone else so that we can make sure everyone gets to practice together) This class is free of charge, but there will be a charity collection if you’d like to take part. You are welcome to sign up online or drop in on the day. Come along and join us! *By attending this class, you are confirming that you are able to practice Yoga in a large group setting. If you have any doubts about your ability to participate, please seek the advice of a medical expert before attending class

Warm Gentle Yoga – Tuesdays at 10am



Warm Gentle Yoga – Tuesdays at 10am

Starting up a new practice may come easily to you if you’ve been physically active through your life. However if you feel stiff or have a history of injuries or if you simply want to make sure your practice is safe for your body, then our Warm Gentle Yoga classes are for you. Starting a gentle practice for beginners can be an excellent way to stay active and lower stress levels.

The props and modification of poses that we use in this class are designed for people who need to support their joints in order to built confidence in their own practice. Exercise is a crucial part of healthy aging and our Tuesday morning class could be an excellent low-impact exercise option that’s easier on the body than activities like running or weight-lifting. Warm Gentle Yoga classes are designed for everyone who wants to increase flexibility, incorporating the benefits of moving in a safe environment. The gentle heat of the studio allows the body and mind to relax more quickly. Taking time for yourself can help to relieve stress, keeping you centered and energized. The gentle stretching of a yoga pose can go long way in helping to develop greater flexibility, which can ensure that you maintain a good range of motion in the joints. Our classes can help to prevent osteoporosis or to relieve pain from an existing bone condition or fracture. The gentle twisting poses and stretches can be beneficial to introduce movement back into stiff areas of the body and relieve pain and discomfort. We focus on noticing sensations in the body and working within safe limits, so as not to aggravate or cause injuries. If you would like any further information please don’t hesitate to contact us, or drop in to our Tuesday Warm Gentle Yoga at 10am, we would be delighted to welcome you to our clean, warm studio! If you are concerned about your ability to take a Yoga class, please do take medical advice before coming along to class.
