With classes at Edinburgh Yoga Studios’ costing an average £12 a session, yoga has become a pastime for people with a high disposable income, which just doesn’t seem right!
Yoga classes at Tollcross Community Centre started in 2008 and have been running ever since. In August 2018 some of the classes relocated to Boroughmuir High School. My aim is to provide affordable drop in yoga class for everyone.
I believe yoga should be accessible to everyone and whilst I may not be able to offer a luxurious studio interior, you’ll find our environment is inclusive, non-intimidating, non-judgemental and in the winter, yes, you’ll find it’s a little bit drafty!!!
You will find us at Tollcross Community Centre ALP, the Community Wing is attached to Tollcross Primary School, Edinburgh, EH3 9QG and Boroughmuir High School, 111 Viewforth, Edinburgh, EH11 1FL
Classes run throughout the year and students are welcome to drop in to any of the sessions. The cost is £5 or £4 Student/Concession and no advance booking is necessary. Bring your mat and arrive five minutes before the class start time. There are some mats available to borrow should you need one.
