About Heart Space Yoga & Bodyworks
Heart Space Dundee offers a warm welcome to everyone.
Our constant aim is to introduce and teach the highest quality Yoga to everyone interested in well-being, regardless of age, gender or lifestyle.
Founder and principal teacher Finlay Wilson started Yoga after having surgery on both of his legs. He owes his recovery from surgery to a daily Yoga practice which he has maintained continuously for 7 years. Due to his own experience, passion and enthusiasm Finlay discovered, and is still discovering, the many benefits of a regular Yoga practice. This led him onto a teacher training programme and to being a professional Yoga teacher for the last 5 years. During this time Finlay has created and opened his own Yoga studio and is Scotland’s only certified Forrest Yoga Teacher and is fast becoming a leading Yoga professional in the UK.
Forrest Yoga is the principle Yoga style taught at Heart Space focusing on a connection to breath, strength, integrity and spirit. Forrest Yoga uses intelligent sequencing that provides each student with an understanding, acceptance and comfortable feeling of their own body movement. The unique approach of Forrest Yoga means that students of all abilities can access, develop and benefit from the deep work and changing potential of each class. Additionally, Heart Space includes Pilates and Vinyasa Yoga classes.

The doors to Heart Space were opened in 2010 after a considered renovation process that transformed Dundee’s West End former Logie Church Hall that had fallen to disrepair into a beautiful purpose built 2000 ft. Yoga studio. The original carved wood ceiling, magnificent stained glass windows and thick stone walls all remain, creating a welcoming, heartening and special space to practice and enjoy Yoga.
Today Heart Space offers more than 25 classes, seven days a week from beginner to experienced level and has succeeded in creating a supportive community and environment where students feel at home. Away from the studio Heart Space works in the wider Dundee community through its Young Yogis Project, weekly classes at Maggie’s Dundee Centre and Dundee Chiropractic as well as providing Yoga classes, workshops, projects and demonstrations in local and surrounding area schools.
The Future of Heart Space
Heart Space Yoga & Bodyworks is a registered charity (SCIO). We currently rent the studio building with responsibility for maintenance and upkeep. This puts a lot of strain on our resources and restricts our ability to develop our work because we are basically putting the majority of our income into someone else’s pocket. Our vision includes maximizing our resources to secure our future and legacy.
The first stage towards achieving this is to own the studio building.
