Yoga studio and wellness hub

Choose YOU is West Lothian’s first dedicated yoga studio.

Our holistic studio in Carmondean, Livingston is spacious, full of natural light and tastefully decorated.  We host a range of yoga classes in different styles and aim to provide something suitable for every ability.  We provide mats and other equipment which we use regularly to enable students to obtain poses they would otherwise be unable to achieve.

‘Choose YOU – yoga studio and wellness hub’ is owned and operated by local IYENGAR yoga teacher Eva Paterson.  Her vision was to create a central, fully equipped and dedicated venue that could hold up to 20 students comfortably.

Eva began teaching in 2004.   Choose YOU was born in June 2017, as finding suitable spaces to hold classes had become increasingly difficult and more expensive.  The entrance and studio are both warm and welcoming.  The studio has become a ‘community space’.  Fellow students have become friends and the space is well used by other local instructors.

We welcome enquiries from tutors of yoga, mindfulness, tai chi, pilates and other holistic disciplines, including training courses.

Choose YOU has two therapy rooms also available for let.  A range of times and pricing options are available to holistic practitioners, counsellors etc.  Please contact us for more information.

Training with Ali Dashti

March 4th, 2020

Studio owner Eva Paterson recently attended an Iyengar training weekend with renowned instructor Ali Dashti. Ali trained with BKS Iyengar for many years and is featured in multiple Iyengar published books. He is also an author in his own right.

The training focussed on alignment (as always!), using tools and props to ensure students know what we mean. The teachers only day featured extensive work on the groins and hips. This will quickly become incorporated into classes and will most likely feature at this years Lendrick Lodge retreat in June.
