Welcome to Perth Yoga Studio
We are at the Old Academy Building, 7 Rose Terrace, PERTH PH1 5HA, Scotland, in the middle of the Georgian Terrace facing the North Inch Park and the river.
Please take a look at our Timetable for yoga classes, t’ai chi, mindfulness, etc. to find a class that fits what you are looking for. As we have a spacious studio, unless otherwise stated, all classes are drop-in with no need to pre-book.
Newcomers to Yoga – frequently asked questions:
I am a beginner to yoga, which class would suit me best?
Most classes are suitable for beginners unless otherwise stated on the timetable
Hatha Yoga is working with postures individually and includes breathing exercises and relaxation
Hatha Yoga Flow is linking postures in sequences
Active Yoga with Suthesh is exactly that
Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga is a stronger practice for those with some yoga experience or with a good level of fitness and for sports people
Kundalini Yoga is an uplifting blend of spiritual and physical practices – movement, dynamic breathing techniques, meditation and mantras
Do I have to pre-book?
Only for Pregnancy Yoga, Baby Yoga, Mindfulness Meditation and Crystal Meditation. For all other classes you can drop in. We are fortunate to have a beautiful studio which is bright and spacious
Do I need to bring my own mat?
You can if you like or you can hire one for £1 that we donate to our CYS yoga teacher colleagues Helen and Debbie who run a charity called Yogability that raises funds to give free yoga classes to adults and children with disabilities and their carers.
How much do the classes cost?
Prices vary as all the teachers work independently. However, as a guide, a drop in class would be between £7-9 and most teachers will offer a block of classes, for instance, 5 classes for £35/40 (valid for 2 months); Concessions will usually be £5 – for students, under 18s, seniors, unwaged
Kundalini Meditation class
1st Wednesday each month
6.30 – 8pm Studio 2: All welcome
Kundalini Meditation is a time to be with yourself, an opportunity to create a stillness within where we do not react to the incessant flow of the mind.
We will be using breath, mantra, mudra and visualisation to focus the mind.
There are many beautiful benefits of meditation: reduce stress, increase self-esteem & confidence, feel calmer, help you to cope with day to day life.
This is an open class and you can drop in. No previous experience is necessary and all are welcome. The energy exchange is £7. For more information please call Julia Coulson on 07910 836854 or Julia Melville on 07970 185556
Shell McGrath’s classes at Perth Yoga Studio
Shell is on maternity leave. Her Early Risers class on Mondays, and Hatha Flow class on Tuesday mornings, will start up again in October. She will also resume teaching her Thursday and Friday evening classes in October.
Hatha Flow Friday night 5.30-6.45pm
Jamie Dalgliesh currently teaches Thursdays at 7.30pm and Fridays at 5.30pm – see our Teachers & Therapists page for more details about Jamie. Shell will be resuming teaching these sessions in October.
What to expect from Jamie’s class:
After some initial relaxation, class will start with Pranayama breathing exercises to get the mind and breath in the right place. Moving through sun salutations to warm up the body, a flow of postures will then help bring energy to the different chakras. The final relaxation was always Jamie’s favourite when he started doing yoga so he’ll be giving plenty of time for a relaxing Yoga Nidra at the end.
Jamie’s new Friday night class starts on the 7th July 5.30 – 6.45pm. Why not come along and start your weekend with the right intention? All levels are welcome.
NIA classes are now back on Wednesdays at 1.30pm and some Fridays at 7.30pm
