From all of us at Hot Yoga Edinburgh we wish you a very Happy New Year and hope that you all had a wonderful festive season!
2015 was a great year at Hot Yoga Edinburgh, with 2 new teachers joining our team, Jo and Emanuela, who have each brought their own unique style and energy to add a little extra sparkle to our classes.
We introduced a new Warm Morning Yoga class on Thursdays at 7am which has proved popular with those early-birds amongst us who say that they come out of class feeling warm, energised and wide awake and ready to face the day! This class is held in a warm (not hot) studio and combines a slow dynamic flow with some stretches and twists to gently waken and energise the body.
We ran a series of workshops over the year which allowed students to deepen their practice and study key poses in much more detail to gain a better understanding of the purpose of the pose as well as correct alignment and some hints and tips to safely develop their practice.
We raised money for the Nepal Earthquake crisis through our participation in the Edinburgh Marathon Festival, and also celebrated our first birthday in style with a Hot Yoga class followed by a little glass of bubbles and some healthy treats.
We also introduced Edinburgh to its first Moksha Hot Yoga class in December with a visit from Annette Mellor, owner of three Moksha Yoga Studios in Canada. Supported by Lululemon Athletica, this busy class was a great success and our students loved receiving a Goodie Bag courtesy of Lululemon.
We are entering 2016 with some fantastic plans already in place, including our first ever 50 hour Yin Teacher Training which starts at the end of April, there are a few places still available so it’s not too late to sign up!
We have some other exciting events and news coming up in the coming weeks and months, so watch this space!
We would like to thank you all for your support and wish you a healthy and happy 2016 and we look forward to seeing you on the mat!
