Mind Body Midlothian

Pilates – Yoga – Wellbeing

Pilates and Yoga classes across Midlothian, syncing mind and body through gentle movement.

Whether you are a complete beginner, have a little experience, looking to improve your back or are looking for the relaxation effects of gentle movement, there is a class for you.


Our Classes

Our studios are home to a variety of classes and movement styles where we are confident there is something for everyone.

We welcome real people with real bodies to our classes. Whether you are looking for a class to loosen off stiff joints, ease aches and pains, build strength and stamina, improve mental health or simply get moving – you are very welcome here.

Our classes are booked in blocks, which guarantees you your space. This allows us to keep class numbers small and gives our teachers a chance to get to know you, and you to know them.

We’re also realistic and know that life gets in the way sometimes and you can’t make it along to your regular class – this is where our unique swaps system comes in. If you can’t make our usual class one week, just let us know, and you’ll be welcome to pop into another class in the week, space allowing.

Read on to find out what type of classes we have.

Pilates

Our Pilates classes are ideal for beginners, those recovering from injury & surgery, or achey stiff joints in general.

Our main focus in these classes is rebalancing your body, putting it back into alignment and connecting the mind & body through small, gentle, controlled movements.

All of our classes have limited spaces, to ensure our teachers can get round to each person and give the attention they deserve.

Yoga

Our Yoga classes are ideal for building strength and stamina at your own pace.

We have a variety of Yoga classes available in our studios, including Gentle Flow, Hatha, Ashtanga Vinyasa and Power Yoga. Beginners are welcome in any of these classes and will be guided at their own level by our team of experienced teachers.

All of our classes have limited spaces, to ensure our teachers can get round to each person and give the attention they deserve.

Nurture Yoga (Teens)

Our Nurture Yoga is a small class specifically for 12-16 year olds dealing with stress and/or anxiety.

Being a teenager in today’s society is one of the most stressful things that our teenagers have to try and somehow navigate their way through. From peer pressure to exams and hormones, it’s no wonder they get stressed!

Yoga is so beneficial at this vital age of development and combats all of these tension areas through a holistic practice focussing on the mind, the body and the breath.

Pregnancy Pilates

Our Pregnancy Pilates classes are ideal way to continue moving during pregnancy.

We welcome mums at all stages of pregnancy into our class, where you will gently mobilise stiff joints, realign your body, cover pelvic floor strength and general gentle Pilates exercises too. Those with no experience of Pilates are very welcome to attend – it’s also a great time to meet other and have a good chat! This class is limited to 8 spaces, to ensure each mum gets the attention they deserve.

Baby Massage

Our baby massage classes are suitable for birth onwards, although babies and their parents will get most out of the class by attending a block before they begin to crawl.

It’s a calming practice for both, designed to teach the parent(s) basic massage strokes to help alleviate colic, constipation and teething pains, all whilst building the bond through touch.

This is a 5-week course and includes a jar of organic raw coconut oil to use throughout, as well as your very own handy guide to massage routines to work with at home.

Mum and Baby Pilates

Our Post-Natal Pilates classes are aimed at new mums who’d like to come to a class, but don’t have the childcare to allow them to.

Pre-crawling babies are welcome in this relaxed class, that allows you space and time to feed/change baby and dip in & out of exercises at your own pace. No experience in Pilates is needed and in fact, this class is ideal for beginners looking to rediscover that mind-body connection with their deeper core muscles and re-connect with their bodies.


Our Studios

Mind Body Midlothian has two cosy studios waiting for you, in Bonnyrigg & Leith.

In Bonnyrigg, we have our larger studio and main office. Set in the office block of an old sawmill on the road to Carrington, our first-floor studio looks out onto woodland and fields. Our team of teachers lead a diverse variety of over 16 classes a week (and growing). Classes in this studio are capped at 12 (8 for specialist classes) as well as availability for 1-1 sessions.

In Leith, our newest studio is set within Out of the Blue Drill Hall, a Category A listed building originally built in 1901 for the Royal Scots, on Dalmeny Street. Set through the back of the building on the ground floor, in a calming and cosy space, the studio boasts underfloor heating and a sky-light filling the room with natural light. Our team of teachers here predominantly teach Pilates and in 2020 we will expand the Leith studio offerings to include different styles of Yoga and pregnancy/post-natal classes.
