Yellow Kite flies in for Wilson's Wild Kilted Yoga

Yellow Kite has signed Wild Kilted Yoga: Flow and Feel Free by social media star Finlay Wilson.

Liz Gough, executive publisher at Yellow Kite, acquired world rights from Ava Taylor at YAMA Talent, and hardback publication is scheduled for 4th November 2021.

The synopsis explains: “Wild Kilted Yoga takes you on an incredible journey through dramatic Scottish landscapes and will leave you feeling zen and grounded without having to leave your home. In a year where people have connected to the wild landscapes on their doorsteps like never before, Wild Kilted Yoga will guide you through unique yoga sequences suitable for all levels: strong heat-building poses for Fire, flowing and graceful movements for Water, steady and grounded poses for Earth, and lightness and poise for Air; seamlessly connecting you to all the elements of the outdoors. With stunning photography shot by Finlay’s identical twin brother Alastair, the book will transport the reader straight to the Scottish wilds.”

Wilson is a certified yoga teacher who lives in Dundee, Scotland. He teaches classes all over the world, as well as being a BBC content creator and is the star of a kilted yoga video which went viral in February 2017, gaining 43 million views in only five days. His first book Kilted Yoga: Yoga Laid Bare (Yellow Kite) was published in that same year.

He said: “Lockdowns brought it closer to home than ever, that the natural world has much to teach us to restore health and wellbeing. Being able to travel around Scotland and work in such an evocative landscape with my twin brother allows us to show you some of Scotland's beauty and hopefully reveal the potential of the outside world wherever you are.”

Gough added: “This gorgeous four-colour book is the ultimate Christmas gift for the yogi in your life! The Scottish landscape will inspire anyone who has ever considered doing yoga to get their mat out (and their kilt on). I am so thrilled to be publishing Finlay’s second book and look forward to reaching his audience in Scotland, the rest of the UK and internationally once more this Christmas.”
