Change to Timetable Saturday 27th & Sunday 28th June!

balasana

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!

World Yoga Day!

We wanted to remind you of a few changes to our regular timetable which will be happening over the month of June.

Weekend of 13th / 14th June

At Hot Yoga Edinburgh we are committed to on-going training and both Heini and Allison will be attending a 2 day workshop in Glasgow with well-known Yogi and author Leslie Kaminoff (author of “Yoga Anatomy”).  Our teachers will bring back a wealth of knowledge and skills from this workshop which they will be able to put to good use in your Hot Yoga Edinburgh classes!

But please don’t worry about missing your weekend classes!  Jo Beautyman will be covering our regular Hot Vinyasa & Yoga Mixed class on Saturday 13th June and will also run 2 classes on Sunday 14th June (**Please note the changed times for this Sunday only**).  Therefore our schedule for this weekend only will be as follows:

Sunday 14th June 1.15pm Hot Yoga;  2.30pm Hot Vinyasa

Weekend of 27th / 28th June

The owners of our Gathering Essence studio on Broughton Street Lane hold Full-day workshops on 2 Sundays per year (end January and end June) and on those Sundays we are not able to run our classes.  Therefore please note the following schedule for this weekend only:

Saturday 27th June:  1.15pm Hot Yoga;  2.30pm Hot Yin; 3.45pm Hot Vinyasa

Sunday 28th June:  **NO CLASSES**

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
