Yoga classes in Dumfies (and Nithsdale and around about)

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, Jackie and Jane (both at Bannatyne’s club), Jessica, Jill, Laura, Lucy, Marianna, and Moira. 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
