Experience and Training

Lisa-Williams-yoga-teacher-Sivananda-EdinburghI have been a massage therapist since 1994 and a yoga teacher since 1996. I offer treatments and yoga classes for adults and children. I have worked in the U.K. (London, Surrey and Edinburgh), Grenada (spa resorts, villas, yachts and private homes) and at Petit St.Vincent Resort, St. Vincent and the Grenadines in the Caribbean. I returned to the UK in 2011. I have a B.A. (Hons.) in Social Psychology from the University of Sussex, U.K. I trained soon after in Body Massage, Anatomy and Physiology at the Wilbury School of Natural Therapy in Hove, Sussex, and gained an I.T.E.C. qualification. I hold a yoga teachers’ (200 hour) certificate from the Sivananda Ashram in Reith, Austria, which has international recognition through the US-based ‘Yoga Alliance’. I have a Reiki II (Practitioner’s Level) qualification from London, U.K. Holyrood Yoga offers yoga classes to all age groups and abilities. Small class sizes in a relaxed environment make the atmosphere friendly and non-competitive. You will be placed in a class that suits your ability and experience. Individual sessions are also available. As of February 2018, classes are on Monday evenings 6:15-7:15pm and Friday mornings at 9:30-10:30am in Portobello. Cost is £10 for a drop-in session, or £32 for four consecutive sessions. Mats available. I also teach preschoolers and older kids, so if your child or school are interested in setting up a class or would like a class at your child’s nursery, do get in touch.  Appointments for massage are can be booked for either half an hour (£25) an  hour (£40) or 90 minutes (£60) and can travel to you if you are in the East of Edinburgh.  The massage is a blend of Swedish and deep-tissue techniques, acupressure, reflexology and Reiki. I also offer Reiki and reflexology as stand-alone treatments. You can book a yoga class or massage appointment at a time convenient to your schedule, perhaps while the kids are at school.  Treatments are also available on Saturday mornings. I also offer half day, full day and  week-long yoga and meditation retreats in beautiful, peaceful settings in the UK and abroad, to give you the opportunity to deepen your experience of yoga and meditation practice. Call or text me on 07429 540849 for booking or more information. I look forward to seeing you soon, Lisa Williams B.A. Psychology, I.T.E.C., 200 hr Yoga certification, Reiki Level II
