The Kilted Yoga Experience

Enjoy our fabulous Kilted Yoga Retreat that will rejuvenate and enlighten you from head to toe. Relax, practice and learn at our wonderful yoga complex overlooking the inspiring Trossachs mountains.

This is a collaborative retreat, combining the idyllic location of the farm with the skills and experience of Kilted Yoga. You will experience the very best in the current yoga discipline along with nutritious food, massages, walks, and therapeutic hot tub wind-down sessions.

From the ancient Greeks and the thread of fate, weaving and the metaphors of creation have been an integral part of our storytelling. Movement also allows us to tell the story of who we are, all we were before, and how we can heal. Join senior Scottish yoga teacher Finlay Wilson and Scottish musician and yoga teacher Farrah Fawcett for a program that weaves together storytelling, nature, and meditation to bring your intentions to life.

Through pranayama, asana, journaling, and more, you will:

Expand your movements to navigate all the threads that make up your practice

Learn the four unique sequencing approaches to asana

Strengthen your passion for yoga and its many limbs

Reignite and reiterate your vital connection with nature.

Participants can expect sessions that offer a steady pace so you can remain grounded and build a strong foundation, both physically and mentally. An assistant will be available to help with modifications and traditional live Scottish folk music will be offered during savasana.

You can view the retreat itinerary and we look forward to you choosing to join us for this unique experience.

Who is it for?

The retreat is for anyone looking to explore or develop their yoga practice. Finlay takes pride and pleasure in working with beginners to experts alike. By taking time out of life to immerse yourself in a yoga retreat you can truly connect with the fulfilment and wellbeing that daily, instructor led, tuition brings. Discover ways to connect to the birth right of your own wellbeing, through meditation, yoga, self-massage, wholesome food, and guided relaxation.

There is no right level to be at, only learning and experiencing the connection with others during the daily yoga and mindfulness sessions over the 5-day retreat.

Our message is simple, the outdoors can nourish you in a way that just doing yoga can’t. Doing both together can bring about huge shifts in your energy and spirit. We want to inspire people to step into their most authentic self, to embrace and protect the natural world, and to feel good in their body and mind. We want to share yoga and what we have learned with everybody, to display a life lived in love, wellbeing, and to portray a wholesome lifestyle. I look forward to meeting you in person on the yoga mat and in the natural surroundings of the farm.

About The Host

Finlay Wilson

Kilted Yoga has launched me and my practice into the spotlight with over 100 million worldwide views of my videos from the original Kilted Yoga video on BBC The Social. Kilted Yoga, Yoga Laid Bare was released as a book in October 2017 and has been attracting people’s attention to yoga, Scotland and a healthier way of being and thinking.

I am a certified Yoga teacher, and Senior Yoga Alliance teacher and in 2011 I founded Heart Space Yoga & Bodyworks, a charity organisation that works with children and various outreach groups allowing me to channel my passion for working with young people and those who may not usually have access to yoga. This makes up my day to day teaching and has done for the last 12 years. I began yoga in 2007 following surgical procedures on both legs and used yoga for my rehabilitation. I have completed over 2000 hours of training with Yoga Certification Programmes along with over 1000 hours of Ashtanga and Vinyasa training. As well as my weekly classes, I also lead classes all over the world, teacher training programmes and development programmes, creating content for the BBC, blog, and record online yoga classes through Youtube and other online providers.

In the Yoga room, I am quite hands-on, drawing on over 15 years of bodywork experience, injury management, and manipulation through hands-on assists. Through my own rehabilitation physically and mentally, I feel like safe therapeutic touch was a cornerstone in my development and I delight in sharing that when I travel and teach. I strive for a rigorous daily practice that allows me the chance to connect to myself on a daily basis and to manage an ongoing issue with my spine.

For the last few years, I have spoken publicly and online through BBC and other press outlets on LGBTQ+ issues, Male Mental Health, and the issues around suicide. This is something I am passionate about being a voice for and the book, Kilted Yoga, has opened the doors for me to speak to people about how a yoga practice can help you with mental health struggles but also about how to get fierce about what you are passionate about, even if that is your own healing.
