ECY is one of the most established yoga outreach organisations in the country
We run an average of forty classes a week, more than half of which are in outreach settings. Our inclusive approach means our students ages range from from 13-95 and almost half are men.
Alongside our outreach and community programmes we also run a comprehensive workplace wellbeing program offering solutions to work related pressure in high stress environments such as the NHS. We also offer mainstream yoga classes and retreats and run training courses for yoga teachers interested in our approach to teaching outreach.
Our vision encompasses the yogic values of respect and compassion and the humanist ideal of unconditional positive regard. We believe in social equity and work towards an inclusive world where each individual has access to and is empowered by doing yoga.
ECY takes the therapeutic benefits of yoga to communities in Edinburgh, ensuring access and inclusion, by working across the cultural, economic and health barriers that inhibit people from taking part. We aim to provide a learning environment that is safe and supportive, and to equip people with the skills to deal with stress and improve their health and mental well-being. We achieve this as a not-for-profit organisation, by offering a range of quality outreach projects, public and workplace classes and retreats, and teacher training.
