Our first recommendation is Calm on Canning Street, a yoga and wellbeing sanctuary nestled in Edinburgh’s West End. Everyone is welcome to join: whether you’ve never set foot on a yoga mat or have practiced yoga for many years. With a range of yoga classes available, all ages, abilities and lifestyles are catered for. Enlisting only the most experienced and friendly teachers, classes are kept small to deliver high quality teaching. Calm on Canning Street believes the essence of yoga is not the shapes we make but the way we feel after we practice and how we step off the mat and back into the world. It is so much more than a physical practice. We hope spending time with us in our studio helps you make more sense of yourself and the world around you and leaves you feeling lighter in spirit and calmer in mind.

Yoga with Esme

Our second recommendation is Yoga with Esme. With fifteen years yoga experience, Esme believes that yoga is more than a practice, it’s therapy. Esme’s yoga classes make you feel at ease from the moment you arrive. Throughout her years teaching, Esme has learned to read what each body needs and adapts her lessons to the individuals in her class so that everyone is catered for. She creates a space where people feel they can be themselves, be challenged and see the progression in their practice. All classes are complete practices that incorporate a sankalpa (intention sitting), sun salutation, standing poses to help your hips, sitting poses to help your spine, inversions to balance the nervous system and savasana (relaxation) for integration. Whether you’re looking for an emotional health boost, treatment for back pain or arthritis, or simply a way to enjoy being in your own skin, Yoga with Esme is the answer.
