Finlay is a certified Forrest Yoga teacher, Forrest Yoga Guardian-in-training and Senior Yoga Alliance teacher. He is the founder and principal teacher of Heart Space Yoga & Bodyworks in Dundee and is a widely sought-after international yoga teacher. Finlay began Yoga in 2007 following surgical procedures on both legs and used Yoga for his rehabilitation.

He leads classes all over the UK, features on his online Yoga channel at Mat2Mat, presents at Yoga conferences and performs asana demonstrations at events and fundraisers. He is highly passionate about working with children and young people and has established the Young Yogis Project to bring free Yoga to toddlers, children, teenagers and young people with special needs and disability in his hometown Dundee, Scotland.

Finlay is very hands on in the Yoga room drawing on over 8 years of Bodywork experience fusing Thai Massage and Structural Integration techniques with the advanced hands-on assists from the Forrest Yoga practice. He has experience in working with physical disability and complex injury needs and can tailor his sessions for beginner students and advanced students that are looking to realise the next stage of their power.

Finlay continues his training with a rigorous daily practice and regularly travels around the world to work with other leading Forrest Yoga teachers and with his teacher, Ana Forrest, herself. As an assistant to Ana Forrest, he has learned how to construct sequences that are highly intelligent and congruent with the needs of the individual coupled with compassionate hands-on assists that will make you feel safe and guide you into feeling your body in a new and exciting way.

You can now practice online with Finlay via Mat2Mat.com, an online Yoga platform. He has recorded workshops and classes of all levels and themes so no matter where you are in the world, you can get some great medicine at home.
