Workshops give that extra time and space to nail down specific parts of the Yoga practice. See both past and current workshop availability for Dee McQueen Yoga here.

A place for movement and music to meet in perfect harmony
For the majority of my life I loved a party, I had no issues being the last one standing and always loved a good boogie - fancy dress, house party, dancing on the bar - I'm in! Moving into my 30s and starting to find extreme joy in my sofa and pyjamas and wanting to be up early in the morning to go to yoga, seemed like a very sudden shift to JOMO (joy of missing out). But there is a part of me that does miss the excitment, the dancing, the finger pointing and hip wiggling to a great song, yelling to a friend 'OMG it's our song'!
I started to think about how I can create a space where the joy of wellness, dancing, music and being home in time to put your pj's on can all exist together.
On Friday June 16th I am launching the first edition of DUSK, where you can experience a new wellness movement. Where you can move your body through a glorious yoga practice to live music to get you in the mood, reclaim the dancefloor, and still be home in time to pop your feet up on the sofa. Or if you're really feeling it, you could continue to party the night away!
Your ticket will include a 90 minute yoga and meditation practice, a drink and free time to pop on your boogie shoes; as well as an amazing goodie bag including a free item of your choice from the Lululemon store!
7:00pm - 90 minute Vinyasa and Meditation Yoga practice to live music
8:30pm - Bar opens
8:45pm - Our amazing DJ Miss Mobile Disco will continue to blast her blend of Funk, Soul and Disco tunes for you to move and groove to
10:00pm - Home time or kick ons....
ROCKET YOGA IMMERSION
Saturday 22nd July
@ Out of the Blue Drill Hall, Leith
These workshops are proving to be incredibly popular, we are so happy to see the Edinburgh Rocket community growing so fast!
Join myself and Benji Pérez Salinas for a fun and dynamic 2 hour Rocket Flow, where together we’ll build the confidence and stability to get on your hands and go upside down, and all the transitions in between!
The Rocket sequences are a series of postures based on a modification of the Ashtanga primary and intermediate series. This uplifting routine is designed to wake up the nervous system and help you to find a spirit of change and freedom in the practice. We will warm up through the Sun Salutations, play with the Standing and Seated postures, and guide you into a restorative Closing.
In this workshop we work on linking breath with movement, and build on dynamic and strengthening postures. You will get the opportunity to try it all - think arm balances, inversions and backbends - all under the watchful eyes of not one but two teachers who adore this style of movement.
Expect some glorious hands on assists to help you find a deeper sense of steadiness and comfort in the postures.
All-levels are welcome. The only requirement is to embrace the challenge and have fun on the mat - so get ready to laugh, sweat and fly!
Stay after for a community group lunch too (venue TBC).
INTRO TO YOGA
Thursday 19th October
@ lululemon Edinburgh store
£0 - FREE EVENT
A free workshop at the lululemon Edinburgh store. An introduction to Yoga focusing entirely on men.
The aim of the session is to get rid of the concept that Yoga is just for flexible women and hippies, and help show how postures can be adjusted to suit different body types (stiff back and shoulders or tight hamstrings), as well as showing how it can complement other sports and movement forms and help you feel great in your body and mind.
If you still want to be mobile enough to tie up your shoes at 80 years old then this is the workshop for you!
Wednesday 25th October
@ Custom House, Leith
Something fun to do mid-week as the nights get shorter!
An all levels workshop learning drills to help you find confidence and strength to balance on your hands.
This workshop is suitable for any one with an interest in learning arm balancing. There will be foundational options for those just beginning their arm balance journey, as well as some more challenging postures and transitions for those who already practice.
