Edinburgh Yoga, Art and Culture

Join our October urban retreat in Edinburgh, the capital city of Scotland. This unique experience integrates yoga, art, culture, and architecture in an unforgettable city.

Edinburgh, a medieval city built on extinct volcanoes explodes with culture and beautiful architecture. JK Rowling lived in Edinburgh and the city inspired her Harry Potter books. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle who wrote the Sherlock Holmes books, was born in Edinburgh. The city is also home to fashion designers who use locally produced tweed fabric in their designs. Every October, storytellers from around the world gather in Edinburgh to captivate with the art of traditional storytelling.

The day will begin with a light breakfast, then a 90 minute yoga class led by Jemitra Renea at Santosa yoga. The rest of the day, we will meander through Edinburgh stopping off at major geological and architecture sites to absorb the city's rich culture and energy. The evenings will be spent at Edinburgh's International Storytelling Festival being entertained by some of the best storytellers in the world.
