Yoga classes in Dumfies (and beyond)

Several local teachers teach yoga classes in and around Dumfries. Here are the main teachers I’m aware of who are teaching in-person yoga classes (unless specified) with links to their websites/Facebook pages so you can find the most recent info about their classes and contact them directly. Always contact a teacher first before turning up, to check the class is running, has space etc.

If you want classes in Dumfries itself, the teachers are: Alyson, Moira, Lucy, Jane (at Bannatyne’s club), and Jill (currently paused other than women-only class taught by Marie). Look these teachers up in the list below to find their info / links.

*If you are looking for yoga classes in Aberystwyth and the surrounding area please check the list on the Yoga of Dragons website. I have moved from Wales to Scotland and am no longer keeping up with the classes in Aberystwyth.

  1. We are a small group of people in Ystrad Meurig interested in gentle yoga. Our previous teacher, Cathy Crick has left the area and we are looking for a replacment teacher. Please would it be possible to suggest somebody who would come to the Edward Richard Centre in Ystrad Meurig once a week. It is a 20/25 minute drive from Aberystwyth,


    1. Hi Mary, thanks for your enquiry. I believe your request was discussed at a yoga teachers’ meeting the other day. I myself do not have a car and cannot travel to Ystrad Meurig. I will forward your request to some yoga teachers. Best wishes, Alyson
