Assembly George Square Gardens
Taking place in the treetop studio from 1pm, a special one-hour session for adults only will include personal expert yoga tuition from Finlay Wilson, Finlay’s top tips for wellbeing and healthy eating, as well the opportunity to get a signed copy of his book – Kilted Yoga: Yoga Laid Bare.
From 3pm on the same day, children aged 5 to 14 years will also get the chance to enjoy a fun yoga workshop led by Finlay, along with his tips for tasty yoga snacks for younger visitors.
Each of Finlay’s yoga workshops are free and non-ticketed, but spaces are limited to up to 30 people per session on a first come, first served basis. Yoga mats are provided, but participants of all levels must come dressed and prepared for movement.
Commenting on his new role in this year’s Edinburgh Food Festival, Finlay said: “I’m delighted that I get to fuse both my love of yoga and my ongoing love affair with healthy eating and good food. What could be better than rocking a kilt on the yoga mat and also getting kilted in the kitchen too?”
Alex Fitzhowle, Edinburgh Food Festival Producer, added: “We’re really excited to be welcoming Finlay Wilson to Assembly George Square Gardens for the first time. We wanted to mark the fifth anniversary the festival by combining some of Scotland’s best contemporary food and drink with expert tips on healthy eating and wellbeing, so we think Finlay offers the perfect blend.
“As well as new chef demonstrations, our bumper line-up will also include a series of meet the local producer events, plus over 20 local producers and street food stallholders.
“Festivalgoers can find out more about this year’s line-up at www.edfoodfest.com and by following us on social media using hashtag #EdFoodFest2019.”
Edinburgh Food Festival welcomed over 25,000 visitors in 2018 and is now expected to be bigger and better than ever in 2019.
The free, non-ticketed festival welcomes visitors of all ages to Edinburgh’s Assembly George Square Gardens.
