About Edinburgh Yoga Festival

EDINBURGH YOGA FESTIVAL IS A CELEBRATION OF THE YOGA IN OUR CITY! THE PEOPLE, THE STUDIOS, THE STUDENTS AND THE COMMUNITY THAT MAKE IT SO VIBRANT AND EXCITING.

EDYOGAFEST OFFERS THE CHANCE TO ENJOY MANY FANTASTIC WORKSHOPS AND CLASSES AROUND THE CITY OVER 8 DAYS IN MAY.

In its third year the festival brings together the yoga community in support of the wider Edinburgh community. Festival classes will run from 11-20 May with classes held in work places across the city as well as a programme of workshops at the Serenity Cafe which is run by and for people in recovery from drug and alcohol addiction. Festival goers can also benefit from yoga workshops that will see some of Edinburgh’s favourite teachers paired up to share all aspects of yoga; from chanting, meditation, breath work, movement, yoga sleep and massage. As part of the festival, a number of Edinburgh based studios and teachers are also offering classes. www.edyogafest.co.uk

AS A FUNDRAISER FOR EDINBURGH COMMUNITY YOGA'S OUTREACH PROJECTS IT IS ALSO A CHANCE TO GIVE BACK.

Edinburgh Community Yoga – ECY are a not for profit social enterprise who exist to take the mental and physical benefits of yoga to unmet populations. They work with a wide variety of organisations, from prisons and secure psychiatric hospitals, to people in recovery from substance addiction, with disengaged youth, women effected by trauma, veterans, refugees, people with long term health conditions, and workplaces including NHS Scotland, NHS Lothian, Blackrock, Macroberts and Edinburgh University. Basically they work with any population that is unlikely to make their way to a mainstream yoga studio. There is now increasing evidence that yoga is a viable option as a complementary therapy for mental health issues including depression, chronic stress and insomnia. The work of ECY is in demand more than ever before and as a not for profit rely on the funds generated by events such as the festival to continue their important work.
