Ailith’s teaching style is a fun, educational combination of both Vinyasa and Hatha yoga styles. Ailith loves giving precise instructions, while also leaving space for self-inquiry and discovery, this enables students of all levels to feel confident and supported in their own personal practice.
While Ailith maintains and respects traditional yogic values, she also regularly looks beyond the yoga mat in search of other movement disciplines and mindfulness techniques. She bakes these into her teaching to form modern, dynamic and anatomically considered practices that leave plenty of room for a fun and satisfying class.
Ailith views movement as a puzzle which she is fascinated to explore. She is always learning and is open to discovering new methods of teaching that can continue to make her classes practical and beneficial to students in and out of the yoga classroom.
Come join the learning.
Ailith is ERYT 500 qualified and is the owner of East Side Yoga.
Rebecca was first introduced to Yoga during her professional dance training, as a complimentary form of exercise to enhance her strength and flexibility. She continued to practice yoga for its physical benefits for several years before taking a two-year break from dancing professionally. However, it wasn’t long into the break before she remembered that she loved the feeling of being connected to her body through movement, so while still needing a rest from the competitive and gruelling dance world, she went back to Yoga. This time Rebecca opened up to the mental health benefits of Yoga, as well as the physical benefits, and she has never looked back. Through Yoga, Rebecca has learnt to be compassionate towards her body, and to let go of competing with herself (although this is still a work in progress!)
Her classes will leave you feeling strong, energised and calm in both body and mind.
Nick is a lover of plants and nature, a traveller, and an aspiring yogi.
His yoga journey began when he moved from Australia to Edinburgh in 2019. Living just around the corner from a friendly yoga studio (ESY), Nick committed to a frequent yoga practice with the hopes of finding routine and connection in his new environment. Several years later, in 2022, his love for yoga led him to a 200-hour Vinyasa YTT with Rebecca Sirman.
Nick’s teaching style focuses on creating fun dynamic flows, fostering mindful breathing, providing hands-on assists which help students to deepen into poses, as well as weaving in stories and themes of yoga and nature to expand the overall experience.
His classes will continue to evolve as Nick’s experience grows, but his main goal as a teacher is to hold space for students and encourage them to find calm and confidence within their own practice.
