About me – The Kilted Yogi

finlay_photo-27

Kilted Yoga has launched me and my practice into the spotlight with over 100 million worldwide views of my videos from the original Kilted Yoga video on BBC The Social to campaigns with companies and other Kilted friends. Kilted Yoga was released as a book in October 2017 and has been attracting people’s attention to yoga, Scotland and a healthier way of being and thinking.

I am a certified Forrest Yoga teacher, Forrest Yoga Guardian-in-training and Senior Yoga Alliance teacher. Currently, I am based in Dundee and am the co-founder and principal teacher of Heart Space Yoga & Bodyworks. You can find my weekly classes there. I began yoga in 2007 following surgical procedures on both legs and used Yoga for my rehabilitation. I have completed over 1000 hours of training with Forrest Yoga Certification Programmes along with over 1000 hours of Ashtanga and Vinyasa training. As well as my weekly classes, I also lead classes all over the world, post classes online at Mat2Mat and Youtube, hosts online courses on Tint Yoga, presents at yoga conferences and performs asana demonstrations at events and fundraisers. I am really passionate about working with children and young people and the Young Yogis Project, has been my passion project for the last 5 years, bringing free Yoga to toddlers, children, teenagers and young people with special needs and disability in Dundee.

In the Yoga room, I am quite hands-on,  drawing on over 10 years of Bodywork experience fusing Thai Massage and Structural Integration techniques with the advanced hands-on assists from the Forrest Yoga practice. Through my own rehabilitation physically and mentally, I feel like safe therapeutic touch was a cornerstone in my development and I delight in sharing that when I travel and teach. 

I strive for a rigorous daily practice that allows me the chance to connect to myself on a daily basis. You can follow along with my yoga practice on my Instagram where I post daily updates, tips, and revelations that I have along the way.

For the last two years, I have spoken publicly and online through BBC The Social on LGBT issues, Male Mental Health, and the issues around suicide. This is something I am passionate about being a voice for and the book, Kilted Yoga, has opened the doors for me to speak to people about how a yoga practice can help you with mental health struggles but also about how to get fierce about what you are passionate about, even if that is your own healing.

 

You can now practice online with me via Mat2Mat.com and Tint Yoga. I have recorded workshops and classes of all levels and themes so no matter where you are in the world, you can get some great medicine at home.

  • Forrest Yoga Inversions, Dundee
    • 01/12/2018
    • In Forrest Yoga, we use poses to sparkle up our blood and to excite the body. Nothing is more exhilarating than inversions, turning the world on its head and changing your physical perceptions.
      Using Forrest Yoga sequences we will stabilise the shoulders, strengthen the core and work on ways to break the anxiety around the upside-down world by working on very safe, assisted inversions.  Once we have the foundations, you can play at your level with what would work best to bring aliveness to your body.
