About Kilted Yoga
Kilted Yoga took the internet by storm in 2017 and have been super busy since. You can find out about our adventures and blogs here along with writing on all things yoga, meditation, and Scotland related. Our message is simple, the outdoors can nourish you in a way that just doing yoga can’t. Doing both together can bring about huge shifts in your energy and spirit. We want to inspire people to step into their most authentic self, to embrace and protect the natural world, and to feel good in their body and mind.
This site will contain our specific Kilted Yoga blogs from creator, Finlay Wilson, moving some of his content from finlay-wilson.com and giving you blogs and updates on the adventures of the Kilted Yogis.
Kilted Yoga began as a merging of passions, Yoga and Scotland’s heritage. Growing up in Lanark, Scotland, the natural world was on the door step everyday and we took for granted the adventures that we had and the respect we learned for our environment. Merging the two and showing some of Scotland’s most beautiful landscapes with the intricacies of yoga poses long practiced felt correct, a harmony to the blending of human and elements. We want to share yoga and what we have learned with everybody, to display a life lived in love, wellbeing, and to portray a wholesome lifestyle. I sure hope that we can meet in person on the yoga mat or in the forest.
In 2018, we were approached by Prickly Thistle to begin the stages of creating our own Kilted Yoga tartan. I wanted to create something that signified some of the colours of Scotland and two patterns were put to the vote with rich greens in one and the greys and blacks of the stone, the flecks of rabbit fur, the flash of white in a deer’s tail, the starkness and colour of a Scot’s Pine, and the red of a deer coat.
Weaving a story
The whole process was led at the first stage mill with Clare from Prickly Thistle, just outside of Inverness. There are two white fibres that start the pattern to signify my twin brother and I and the directions we went off in. Our birthdays are woven into the thread counts along with the 14 horns of a stag monarch that make up my first tattoo and the area of research that I spend my M.A. doing.
