IYENGAR YOGA CLASSES 

Beginners 

This class is suitable for absolute beginners. If you have never done Iyengar yoga before, it is best to start at this level. It is advisable to attend at least one term at this level before moving to a Level 1 class. This term, there is an option to book for the first 6 weeks of the term (this class only) but missed classes cannot be made up during the first 6 weeks.

Level 1

This level is suitable for people who have done the Beginners class or have some previous experience of Iyengar yoga.  We concentrate on standing poses at this level and introduce a range of sitting poses, twists, backbends, shoulder stand and restorative poses.

Level 2

Suitable for students with at least 1 years’ experience of Iyengar yoga.  Students are expected to be able to hold standing poses without strain and to be able to hold shoulder stand for a few minutes.  Head stand is introduced at this level.

Level 3

This class is for more experienced students who should have a regular home practice. Students should be familiar with head and shoulder stand and be ready to work on some Intermediate poses and Pranayama (controlled breathing).

General level

These classes are suitable for all students.  The focus is on Introductory level poses but there will be different options at some points in the class to accommodate more experienced students. This class has a slightly more relaxed pace than the evening classes.

The class size is limited to 15.

Edinburgh Palette is a red brick office block that now houses artist’s studios and Galleries.  It’s on London Road, just beyond Meadowbank Stadium if you are heading out of town. You can get any bus going along London Road and if you come by car, there is a free car park – go past the London road entrance and turn left at the traffic lights (at Jock’s Lodge, into Smokey Brae).  The car park entrance is first on the left (Meadowbank House car park) and you need to go right round to park underneath St. Margaret’s House.

The studio provides yoga mats, blocks, bricks, bolsters and belts (although you are welcome to bring your own mat).  Wear stretchy clothes (leggings or shorts) and bare feet but bring a jumper and socks for relaxation.

Beginners welcome!                                

From £8 per class when you book for the term. Discounts available.

Drop-in for £12 per class

Discounts are available only when paying for a term of classes. Full time students and people on means tested benefits should contact the studio to apply for a discount.
