Joe Burn, Chairperson
I have practised Iyengar yoga for thirty years. In that time I have become a teacher, an assessor and a mentor. I have also been on several Iyengar yoga committees so I hope to bring some experience to the area. I live in Aberdeen.
Jo Mitchell, Membership Secretary
I live in Auchtertool in Fife and teach Iyengar Yoga classes from my home, venues in Kirkcaldy and at Yoga on Tay in Newport on Tay. I have practiced Iyengar Yoga since my 20s in Edinburgh and Vancouver before joining teacher training programme in 2017. I qualified as a teacher in 2020. I enjoy the lifelong learning that Iyengar Yoga provides and sharing the joy of yoga with new students.
Sue Cresswell, Member Group Rep
I have been a student of Iyengar yoga for 30 years and a teacher for the last 12. I lived in Aberdeen for more than 20 years before moving to Edinburgh in 2012, so I have a connection with both the north and the south of the East of Scotland region.
As your regional rep I am your link with the IYUK executive committee. I attend three UK meetings a year (lately on Zoom) where I represent ESIY, voting and reporting back on issues of the day, and reporting in on our activities and concerns.
Kate Bulloch, Treasurer
I discovered yoga many years ago. Living in th West highlands made finding an Iyengar teacher difficult, but the wonders of Zoom and the internet have brought Iyengar yoga back into my life, and now I have wonderful teachers in my own home. I hope that my role of treasurer will allow me to thank you all!
I began practicing Iyengar yoga as a new year resolution in Inverness 2004. It became part of my everyday life bringing balance and joy. Fifteen years later in 2020 I qualified as a level 1 teacher after training in Edinburgh.
