Experience Gin and Yin yoga at the Big Big Gin Festival

The organisers of the Big Big Gin Festival have unveiled plans for a series of ‘Gin and Yin’ yoga sessions to ensure festival-goers leave feeling truly refreshed and relaxed!

Get ready to raise a glass (and a leg!) as the Edinburgh Corn Exchange reveals yet another reason to head to the Big Big Gin Festival next month. As if sipping samples from leading makers and craft distilleries, and watching expert mixologists shake up a storm over at the cocktail bars wasn’t enough, the organisers have unveiled plans for a series of ‘Gin and Yin’ yoga sessions to ensure festival-goers leave feeling truly refreshed and relaxed!

Brought to you by expert yoga instructor, Syra Fleetwood of Syra Yoga, and sponsors, Old Curiosity Gin, ‘Gin and Yin’ combines two fantastic ways to unwind. Yin yoga is a restorative practice that teaches us how to slow down, release tension of the body and mind, and deeply relax. Samples of deliciously crafted gin will be available to enjoy throughout each session to aid relaxation so you can achieve the maximum benefits of the Yin practice.

Suitable for beginners and experienced yogis alike, Syra explains ‘Gin and Yin at the Big Big Gin Festival will be a fun experience, but also a deeply nourishing practice that will leave you feeling calm and grounded. As well as sampling gin throughout the session, participants will be invited to seal in the benefits of the practice and connect with each other by soaking up the energy over a beautifully crafted gin cocktail at the send of the session. You’ll leave feeling balanced, refreshed and restored’.

And that’s not all gin-lovers have got to look forward to at the Big Big Gin Festival. This year, the festival will also play host to a range of must-see masterclasses for those who want to learn a little more about this versatile spirit, and a marketplace with a plethora of weird and wonderful gin-related products on sale. Want to meet the makers? Have a chat with the experts behind the likes of Orkney Gin, William Kerr's Gin, Kinrara Distillery, Porters Gin, Black Thistle Gin, Highland Liquor Company, The Old Curiosity Distillery, Old Poison Gin, Hills & Harbour Gin, Lindun Gin, and 1881 Gin Peebles Hydro. Plus, there’ll be face-painters to add an extra fun factor, fabulous food to savour, live music to add to the festival atmosphere, and selfie walls and a photobooth to capture the memories.

What’s more, this year will also see the unveiling of a brand-new VIP terrace area. Tickets to this area have already sold out for both Saturday sessions, with a limited number remaining for the Sunday session. VIP Terrace ticket holders can enjoy an additional welcome drink inside The Terrace area, guaranteed Terrace seating, a private cloakroom and concierge, a gin-infused sweet treat box, and a keepsake bamboo straw.

With so much to see and do, it’s no wonder tickets for the Big Big Gin Festival have almost sold out already! So grab a ticket while you still can, take your pick of over 100 gins and enjoy a whole new taste experience.
