About kilted yoga
Yoga in Scotland’s national dress
Kilted yoga is yoga, but in a kilt – Scotland’s national dress. The kilt is supposed to make it easier to relax and perform complex moves through its free-flowing nature.
Kilted Yoga has launched Finlay Wilson’s practice into the spotlight with over 100 million worldwide views of his videos from the original Kilted Yoga video on BBC The Social to campaigns with companies and other Kilted friends. Kilted Yoga was released as a book in October 2017 and has been attracting people’s attention to yoga, Scotland and a healthier way of being and thinking.
My tip for your practice
“Yoga can help change how your body feels and create opportunities to feel differently about your own potential and about what is possible. I always get people to look at poses from a place of what they can do rather than being in that reactive place of “I can’t do that”.”
