Classes


Weekly Small Group Hatha Yoga Classes

These are flexibly arranged classes, usually with a maximum of 4 students allowing for plenty of individual attention. There are classes at various times in the week & you simply book into the classes you wish to attend, at the frequency that works for you, subject only to availability of places; & you pay only for those classes you attend.

Current weekly classes

NOTE: This can vary over holiday periods or where there is requirement for additional /fewer classes, for instance an additional evening class.

  • Sunday 10 - 11am (on occasions, this class will be on a Saturday morning instead)
  • Monday 10am -11am
  • Monday 6.40pm - 7.40pm
  • Tuesday 7.10pm – 8.10pm
  • Friday 6.40pm - 7.40pm/7.55pm once per month when class includes a yoga nidra relaxation


Weekly Class Venue 

The usual venue is my small studio at 8 St. Peter’s Place, Viewforth, Edinburgh EH3 9PJ.  See http://www.alexandertechniqueedinburgh.co.uk/find-us.html

Sometimes classes may be held at the Pregnancy and Parents Centre, 10 Lower Gilmore Place, EH3 9NY.  See http://pregnancyandparents.org.uk/contact-us/

Cost

The standard cost**** (see below regarding reduced rates), whether there are 3, 2 or just 1 student, is £12 per person per class.  You pay only for classes you attend, with no cancellation fee if you find you cannot come after all.  This cost reduced to £10 if there are 4 or more students at a St.Peter's Place class.

****Where these costs are not workable for people then we work out an arrangement between us.  I am open to any possibilities because I think, in the end, it is in everyone's best interest for students to attend as regularly as works for them.
