Welcome to the website of BWY Scotland!

Our wish is that this website is a living and breathing resource for the benefit of BWY members and the wider yoga community in Scotland.

The BWY is divided into twelve geographical regions, one of which is the Scotland region. On this website you will find information about the BWY Scotland Committee and you are welcome to get in touch with any of the friendly committee members.
