    What’s On Winter/Spring 2018

    Welcome to ‘What’s On’! I hope you enjoy my first edition as the new editor. Following my recent move to Scotland from the East Midlands my love of Yoga and membership of the BWY has been a great way to meet new friends and settle into the local community. I have been able to attend some wonderful IST days, finally attending Philip Xerri’s Pranayama classes in Aberdeen last Autumn after years of wanting to. Thank you to Nicola, Jean and Marian van Oorschot for their help in putting together this edition and to all the contributors and advertisers who have all been very patient and kind. Aileen

    Regional Officer’s Report Nicola Bourke

    Dear BWY Scotland Members

    I hope you are well and although I am writing this in December, with the sun shining and the sky blue, I hope that by the time this magazine gets sent out in January, the sun will still be shining and the sky still blue. This magazine contains details of our training programme for 2018 and I hope you will support the region and come along and bring a yoga buddy or two along with you. In April we have Anna Semlyen in Edinburgh talking about Patanjali's Nine Obstacles. In September Rajesh David will be in Aberdeen for two days talking about Nada Yoga and using sound to move into silence. The regional AGM will be held during one of the lunchtimes.

    In November Zoe Knott will be teaching a day in each of Aberdeen and Inverness. It's a great programme and thank you to Jean, the RTO, for organising this. All the days can be booked and paid for online. I doubt I have ever written a Regional Officer update without asking for volunteers. This one will be no different. In September 2018, three roles will become vacant. The RO (me), the Booking Officer (Judy) and the Membership Secretary (Michele) will all become vacant. We don't have a succession plan or know yet who wants to do these roles. If you think you can help out please get in touch asap so that you can have a seamless transition into the role you want to do. Without enough volunteers the region cannot continue to organise training days. If your New Year's

  • What’s On – Winter/Spring 2018 6

    Resolution was to become more involved in the yoga community then is a good way to do this. If you want more information please ask. I have enjoyed my time volunteering, but having been on the committee since 2010, I will have done my bit by September 2018. As always I need to send thanks to all the regional volunteers who happily and efficiently keep things ticking over like a well oiled machine. Have you considered going to BWY Congress in March? This has now been renamed to

    Yoga Fest 2018 and there are some great tutors lined up. I highly recommend it. See the website for more details. I hope that 2018 has started well for you and I wish you many happy and peaceful hours practising yoga this year. With best wishes for 2018.

    Nicola Bourke Regional Officer, BWY Scotland.

    In spite of our best efforts to choose highly regarded tutors and topics that we think will be of interest, some BWY Scotland events in recent years have not been well attended. We would appreciate any feedback you may have, positive or negative, as well as suggestions for topics, tutors and venues. We would also welcome hearing from you if you are able to volunteer with assisting in the organisation of our events. Please contact me by phone on 01397 712889 or email . Yours in Yoga, Jean
