Our YTT takes places for the first 3 weeks in beautiful Edinbrugh, capital of Scotland. Then, for the last week of the YTT, the whole group will visit a unique highand location where we'll finish up and graduate. 

About Edinburgh

Edinburgh is the backdrop city to our YTT and is a city that begs to be explored. From the vaults and wynds (narrow lanes) that riddle the Old Town to the urban villages of Stockbridge and Cramond, it's filled with quirky, come-hither nooks that tempt you to walk just a little bit further. And every corner turned reveals sudden views and unexpected vistas – green sunlit hills, a glimpse of rust-red crags, a blue flash of distant sea. So after all the down dogs and Sanskrit, get out and discover why Edinburgh is the world’s festival capital and a UNESCO World Heritage Site.


Last Week in the Country

Our accommodations will be chic yet unpretentious, a mix of modern and traditional Scottish, nestled next to a river or loch. The aim is to bond the group together as we crescendo toward the climax of our learning experience.


Tuition includes accommodation & all meals the week away, manual & Yoga Alliance certificate.

£1,750 (early bird price to March 1, 2019)
£2,000 (full price from March 1, 2019)
