Exciting Times!

Last week our friends from Drkroom visited our studio to make a video of our classes!

This was a one-off experience, where our classes were filmed in order to make a short video and some photographs which we can use to let people know about the styles of class which we teach at Hot Yoga Edinburgh.

Drkroom is a small Edinburgh-based media business which is just starting up.  They really appreciated the opportunity to work with us as they build their business.

We would like to extend a huge thank you to all of our awesome students for working so hard and focussing on their practice while a video camera was running in the background, we couldn’t have done it without you!

As a special thank you, we have credited everyone who came along to one of our videoed classes with a free class pass, you are all wonderful!

Here is a snippet of the video which is being created for us now, we hope you like it!  Full video to follow…..

200 hour Yin Teacher Training!

Yin TT

We’re expanding our 50 hour Yin Teacher Training with Chi Therapeutics – Clare Gates Sjöblom  to a full 200-hours qualification. Following the large number of applicants for the 50-hour Yin TT course, and the interest in continuing their studies with Clare, we are delighted to be able to offer a full 200-hour teacher training course.

We understand that arranging time off work can be difficult and so we have carefully designed the course with a combination of practice and training in Edinburgh with Clare Gates-Sjöblom, and online Webinars to allow you to study from a location of your choosing.

1st module: 31st April-5th May 2016
2nd module: 12th – 15th August (Fri – Mon) + webinar before & after
3rd module: 18th – 21st November (Fri – Mon) + webinar before & after
4th module: April/May 2017, dates TBC (Fri- Mon) + webinar before & after

Each module is 50 hours. You can choose to do 50-, 100- or 200-hours certificate either for your teaching practice or to deepen your own practice. You can choose any two 50-hour modules to make up your 100-hours certificate. This allows you to tailor the training according to your own interests and need.
For example, if you are qualified 200-hours teacher, you might build up towards advanced 300-hours certificate by participating in two modules or towards 400 hours with the full 200-hours training.

Pricing:
£550 for a single Module (£450 early bird discount)
£1800 for the full 200-hour teacher training

A full description of the content of the modules will become available soon.

Happy New Year from HYE!

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!

 

Merry Christmas!
