Anyone can enjoy and practice yoga. If you are interested in becoming more flexible, would like to relax more and feel more balanced and in tune with your needs, yoga can help you achieve this.

Regular yoga can help can help increase your flexibility, aid your fitness and strength levels and helps you relax in times of stress. If you can breathe, you can do yoga and you don't need to be able to touch your toes! You will learn to gently develop your awareness and to go at your own pace.

At Lochside Yoga, Gillian's manner and teaching style create a friendly atmosphere. Her classes are for anyone who is interested in enabling their body to move and feel more open. You don't need to have any previous yoga experience and if you are not particularly flexible, don't worry. Neither experience or flexibility are required, unless otherwise specified in the class information. If you are experienced and have a good degree of flexibility however, with guidance and support from Gillian (and your own commitment and self discipline), you can really deepen and develop your yoga practice.

Weekly classes are held in and around Stirling and the Trossachs. These are suitable for all abilities, equally suited for beginners and those with more experience alike. If you have had a break from your yoga practice and need some inspiration to get started again, a Lochside Yoga class or private session could be just what you need. Each class is slightly different in focus, some are drop-in and others might need to be booked. As well as classes, Lochside Yoga can offer various activities specially designed to suit you and meet your needs.

Lochside Yoga classes and activities are for people of all abilities, interests and experience. Please check out the "What's On" section for more details of the classes and activities.
