Edinburgh Community Yoga is a not for profit social enterprise. 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.
We take the therapeutic benefits of yoga to communities in Edinburgh. We believe in the power of the community that yoga can create and that yoga should not be an exclusive and expensive practice.
We aim to offer yoga to as many people as possible by teaching in prisons, psychiatric hospitals, veterans residences, addiction recovery centres and with a huge range of not for profit organisations in the city.
In order to reach as many people as we can we need your help.
