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.
