My yoga journey

Edinburgh Yoga Festival 2017 

on February 21, 2017

Last year I missed the Edinburgh Yoga Festival as I was away. This year it fell on a busy weekend and I’ve been lacking in motivation to do yoga but I still booked into a class.

I’ve written about before in the class that I attended before Christmas, Edinburgh Community Yoga do great work in getting yoga to people who wouldn’t be able to access it otherwise. As a result I try to attend fundraising things for them as I want to support their work.

The class that I was booked into was lead by Dawn from Rise of Dawn Yoga and was titled ‘A Celebration of Yoga’. Dawn is a great teacher and I really like her style of vinyasa flow classes which incorporates forest yoga teaching and isn’t super dynamic. Currently my schedule doesn’t allow me to make it along to her classes that often so it’s good to be able to make it to classes when they’re at different times.

The class was 90 minutes which flew by except a couple of poses which seemed to last forever. It was a really nice combination of seated mediation to start with, lots of twists, some sun salutation variations and hip opening. I really enjoyed it and the shared energy around the room.

The entire festival seems to have been a success and I think most of the classes were busy. I’m hoping that next year I’ll be a bit less busy and be able to host a fundraiser class in the studio as it’d be good to be able to give more to the charity.
