We are proud to be a part of the thriving Edinburgh yoga community. In our bid to reach as many people as we can, we offer a wide variety of inclusive public yoga classes all across our city. 

Our Team

At Edinburgh Community Yoga we have a dedicated and highly experienced team of teachers to help you get the most from your Edinburgh yoga classes.  We are also grateful to be supported by skilled and passionate volunteers.

Our Purpose

We are a not-for-profit social enterprise which means every penny goes back into the organisation to develop our outreach projects. By joining our classes, attending our retreats or supporting our fundraisers you help us to make yoga accessible to everyone!

WHO ARE WE?

ECY is one of the most established yoga outreach organisations in the country

We run an average of forty classes a week, more than half of which are in outreach settings. We teach more than 300 people a week, many of whom would be unlikely to walk into a yoga studio.  Our inclusive approach means our students ages range from from 13-95 and almost half are men.

Alongside our outreach and community programmes we also run a comprehensive workplace wellbeing program and offering solutions to work related pressure in high stress environments such as the NHS. We also offer mainstream yoga classes and retreats and run training courses for yoga teachers interested in our approach to teaching outreach.

WHY DO WE EXIST? 

Our Vision

Our vision encompases the yogic values of respect and compassion and the humanist ideal of unconditional positive regard. We believe in social equality and work towards an inclusive world where each individual has access to and is empowered by doing yoga.

Our Mission

We take the therapeutic benefits of yoga to communities in Edinburgh, ensuring access and inclusion, by working across the cultural, economic and health barriers that inhibit people from taking part.  We aim to provide a learning environment that is safe and supportive, and to equip people with the skills to deal with stress, and improve their health and mental well-being. We achieve this as a not-for-profit organisation by offering a range of public and corporate classesretreats, teacher training and outreach projects.
