Edinburgh's leading yoga and meditation venue. Space, it's all about finding space with integrity. The Sanctuary, yoga studio, therapy clinic, vegetarian/vegan cafe and Scotland's widest range of ethically sourced, fairly traded products all under one roof. Join us and enjoy!
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 producing bio-fuel.
We aim to provide a vegetarian/vegan menu that is seasonal, organic and locally grown where possible and always freshly made. We are on a steep learning curve and always appreciate feedback from our customers. 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!
