Rainbowlight Yoga is a registered yoga school with Yoga Alliance and Independent Yoga Network offering community classes, workshops, retreats and yoga teacher training.
Rainbowlight Yoga style? It’s fun. It’s not demanding or intimidating. It’s not precise and it’s not hot! The best way to describe Rainbowlight Yoga is flow. It’s a community open and accessible to everyone. The classes are tailored to the students present. Rainbowlight Yoga flows and is spiritual and inspiring, rooted in ancient Indian and Tibetan Buddhist roots. Rainbowlight Yoga is organic and holistic. Sounds like food, but maybe there’s something to that. Rainbowlight Yoga is food for the body, mind and spirit.
In yoga terms, we aim to serve the five koshas– annamaya, pranamaya, manomaya, vijnanamaya, anandamaya– physical body, energy body, consciousness body, wisdom body and the bliss body. When your yoga practice moves from reaching one kosha to the next and you unite compassion with the wisdom understanding the emptiness and interdependence of all things, the bliss body is reached — the rainbow body. That’s Rainbowlight Yoga. So when are you coming?
Classes are free/by donation. Suggested donation is £5. No one is turned away from lack of funds.

Tibetan Buddhism and Meditation Classes in Edinburgh
These are small, friendly, informal classes. We start off with a short guided meditation followed by an explanation of the meditation. We introduce the topic of the evening where questions are encouraged. To end, we sit again for another short meditation.
Sunshine teaches from the view of Tibetan Buddhism Gelugpa tradition. This is the holy lineage of Je Tsongkhapa and His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama. Sunshine has completed the Asian Classics Institute (ACI) formal study courses under the supervision of Her Holy Lama Venerable Lobsang Chunzom who is a fully ordained Buddhist Nun. The ACI courses cover the same basic core of information that a Geshe (Doctor of Theology) learns at a Tibetan monastery. These include Perfection of Wisdom (Prajna Paramita), Middle Way (Madhyamika), Higher Knowledge (Abhidharma), Logic and Perceptual Theory (Pramana), Vowed Morality (Vinaya) and Steps of the Path to Enlightenment (Lam-Rim). The ACI courses were developed by Geshe Michael Roach, one of the first Westerners to complete a geshe degree in a Tibetan Monastery (Sera Mey).
