Create a little calm amidst the chaos that is the Edinburgh Festival and come along to Hot Yoga Edinburgh!

All of our regular classes are running as normal, but we have added the following to our schedule from 30th July:

Thursdays from 30th July:- 

6.15pm Hot Vinyasa & Yoga Mixed Class – a 60 minute class which starts with a dynamic vinyasa flow and then slows down to include some of our favourite balancing and floor poses from our Hot Yoga class to give an all-round workout.  This is a great class to dip your toe in the water of a Hot Vinyasa class!

7.30pm Hot Yin – 60 minutes of slow, floor based poses which are each held for approx. 3-4 minutes, allowing the deep and connective tissues to gently stretch, and starting to release tensions from the body.

Mondays from 3rd August:-

7 – 8.15pm – This 75 minute class comprises of a dynamic flow which builds up to a Peak Pose of an inversion or arm balance, followed by a cool down of gentle stretches.  Modifications are offered for poses so that each student can find their own maximum stretch.  This class is suitable for beginners and advanced practitioners.

Don’t forget that we have a change to our regular timetable on the weekend of Saturday 27th and Sunday 28th June.  The owners of our studio hold a full-day workshop on the last Sunday of June and so we are not able to hold our regular classes.  We will therefore be running 3 classes on Saturday 27th June and NO CLASSES on Sunday 28th June.  Our timetable for Saturday 27th is as follows:

1.15pm Hot Yoga

2.30pm Hot Yin

3.45pm hot Vinyasa

Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience, we will be back to normal the following weekend!

Thanks to everyone for your encouragement and support as Heini, John and Allison got ready to take part in the 5k and 10k races and of course for coming to our class on Saturday to raise money for the relief effort in Nepal.  John finished the 10k in 55 minutes and Allison and Heini ran (!) the 5k in 33 minutes!

All proceeds from Saturdays’ Hot Vinyasa & Yoga mixed class were donated to DEC to support the relief work, and we are delighted to have raised the £108 which has been donated via our Just Giving page, please see the link below.  We would like to say a special thanks to those who made an extra donation to this worthy cause.  Our Just giving page will stay open for a few more days so if anyone else would like to make a donation there is still time.

Many thanks once again to all of you for such a fun and memorable weekend!

#Yoga For Nepal

11059711_396362023876591_9185986394376643711_nEMF

As many of you will know, the Edinburgh Marathon Festival is happening on 30-31st May in our beautiful city. The festival comprises 7 different races over 2 days with around 30,000 people taking part.

A lot of our students are participating in these races and we decided that in honour of our lovely students, we would like to give it a whirl and get involved in the action!

So you’ll be delighted to know that Allison and Heini are training  for….. a 5k Power Walk! (mini fist-pump!) John is also going to run the 10k, so we’re covering a lot of bases!

We have started our training for this tough challenge and we’d love it if any of you wanted to join us on Saturday 30th May.

We will be powering through these challenges and then heading to the studio for our Saturday 1.15pm Hot Vinyasa & Yoga Mixed class. To make the day even more special we are going to donate all of the proceeds from the class to the Nepal Earthquake disaster appeal, so come along to class to help support this worthy appeal. We will also set up a Just Giving page in case anyone who can’t make the class would also like to donate.

Please let us know if you’ve signed up for one of these races and feel free to join us either at the race, or afterwards at our class at Gathering Essence studio! Any hints or tips on training or power walking will also be gratefully received :-)

Best of luck to everyone participating in the Edinburgh Marathon Festival!

Allison, Heini & John
