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.

What our clients say

Eva's yoga classes are incredibly energising - it's like pressing a big 'reset' button on mind and body every single week! Her instructions for the poses are detailed and clear, with different levels of challenge depending on where you are in practice. And I always get my best night's sleep on yoga class night!

Editor & Manager, Konect Magazines

I was recommended three years ago to join Eva's class at Choose You Yoga and what an impact it has had on my mind, body and soul! Eva is a truly special teacher, who gives incredible insight and detailed instruction within her practice. She is an extremely positive teacher and offers excellent (and achievable) alternatives, when the body will not comply. A consummate professional.
