BWY East Midlands Region


The Role of BWY East Midlands Region

East Midlands Regions remit is to promote the British Wheel of Yoga, BWY events in our region and yoga generally to current BWY Members and to the public at a local level.

BWY East Midlands  Region Committee

East Midlands Committee Members are dedicated and enthusiastic volunteers, democratically voted into office, who organise regional events, produce the regional magazine, manage the regional website, manage the regions finances, provide information to local members and promote the British Wheel of Yoga and yoga generally to existing members and the public at a local level. We are always ready to welcome new volunteers to the region, contact your local county Representative or Regional Officer to get involved.

Our Regional Officer is the link between BWY Central Office, BWY National Executive and our committee, and brings information to the committee for distribution to members via the County Reps.

The Regional Treasurer manages the region’s finances ensuring that events continue to bring money to the region and that the region maintains a healthy bank balance.

The Regional Training Officer takes care of all the administration required for teachers’ In-Service Training and keeps the committee informed of any changes in training requirements.

The Regional Newsletter Editor is responsible for publicising events well in advance and ensuring that the newsletter contains informative articles for teachers and the general membership.

County Representatives are responsible for sending information out to the Region’s Members, encouraging membership growth, organising and running events (CPD for teachers as well as general interest seminars for members) and answering questions raised by Members or prospective Members. Their role is to ensure that BWY is actively and positively promoted in their county; they are the primary link between members of the public who seek classes/information about yoga and the BWY as the Governing Body for Yoga in the UK.
