Hello

Hello and welcome,

I’m Rachael also known as Panda Yoga Edinburgh 🐼

I’ve been practicing yoga for almost 20 years having first started when at school. I discovered yin yoga in 2014 and fell in love with this slower style of class.

Panda Yoga started in St Margaret’s House in June 2016 following my yoga teacher training. Since then I’ve expanded my knowledge and classes with restorative yoga, BASI pilates and an ongoing 800 hour course in yoga therapy. In May 2019 I moved studio to a space within Lifescycle in Edinburgh.

Classes are kept small to allow for individual attention and options in poses. As such all of my group classes are suitable for beginners but I also offer private sessions if you have a particular focus.

August Classes at Panda Yoga

August classes are now open to book. Booking and the full timetable can be found on BookWhen

Regular classes will continue as normal

You can now buy a class pass for £30 for 4 classes to use within 60 days of your first class. Perfect if you can’t make it along for a few weeks or aren’t sure of your availability at the start of the month.

Yin Yoga is a gentle style of yoga suitable for beginners and those with experience of yoga. Poses are held for 3 to 5 minutes with blocks, bolsters and other props used to support you in poses. Your flexibility will slowly and gently increase with these classes.

Yoga Alliance Registered

Although it makes no difference to how I teach my classes or the qualifications that I already have, today I decided that I would complete my registration as a RYT 200 yoga teacher with Yoga Alliance. This means that I get a fun badge to add to my website and I appear of the Yoga Alliance website.

RYT200

In more practical terms for me as a teacher, it means that the restorative yoga course that I’m taking in March will be counted towards CDP hours and if I want to do a 300 hour yoga teacher training then my current classes count towards the teaching hour requirements of that.
