Santosa Yoga Studio Edinburgh
Santosa Yoga Studio Edinburgh is more than a yoga studio. The Sanctuary, therapy clinic, vegan | veggie cafe and Scotland's widest range of ethically sourced, fairly traded products all under one roof in the centre of Leith. Join us and enjoy! The full range of yoga classes, meditation groups and mind-body practices available in the studio are listed on the timetable. There are Social Art events, holistic therapists offering talks and drop-in clinics.
At Santosa we walk our talk - anything you sit on, sit at or even lean on is up-cycled, pre-loved and has supported the Four Square Edinburgh Furniture Initiative or Ardgowan Hospice. Our products are always fairly traded and ethically sourced whether they've travelled from the East, having been personally chosen by ourselves, or are hand-made right here in Scotland or further afield. We avoid plastic (our take-away food packaging is 100% bio-degradable and mostly already recycled at least once) and our food suppliers are local businesses we are proud to support. All the food waste from our kitchen goes directly into our own compost in the garden.
The seasonal menu is organic and locally grown where possible (frustratingly, it isn't always possible!) but it is always freshly made. Our teachers hold their own space in the yoga studio - we don't employ them, we prefer to provide a beautiful, authentic teaching space that supports both their teaching and their students. Our therapists too. That way, you will always get the best from your yoga teacher or therapist. And yes, we have an amazing team of teachers and therapists!
We want you to take time out away from the mainstream - explore, transform, enjoy and breath a little deeper and a little more slowly. Enjoy!
