Workshop with Wendy McGuire
Saturday, 30th January 2016 at 1:30pm - 4:30pm
At: The Harringay Club, 50 Tottenham Lane, London N8 7EE
NELIYI are very lucky to be able to offer a workshop with Wendy McGuire, an experienced yoga teacher, qualified to Senior Level 2, who has been practising Iyengar Yoga for 35 years.
Wendy’s lively teaching style and infectious enthusiasm for Iyengar Yoga inspires beginners and more experienced students alike. Many of her students have themselves gone on to become teachers.
She says: “Students and friends often ask me how yoga has changed my life. It is impossible for me to answer that question – yoga is part of my life”.
Wendy started learning with an inspiring teacher, Joy Hicks, who is still teaching in the USA. Other teachers include Dorothy Robinson, who ended up training her to become a teacher, and Penny Chaplin, with whom she still attends classes.
She currently teaches popular intermediate, general and beginners' classes in South East London.
Advance booking (click on 'Buy tickets') is necessary for this workshop, as it is likely that this will be a popular event. Please send any enquiries about this workshop to Pam firstname.lastname@example.org

This month we are offering 2 inspiring workshops.
On the 28th of November, we are delighted to welcome Aidan Love who is currently building the profile of Iyengar yoga in Istanbul, Turkey. He trained to become a teacher right here in North London and is familiar with many of us. With his new found life in Turkey, he brings a new perspective from Eastern Mediterrenian!
If you have any queries about the workshops, or wish to book offline, please email
Pam Mackenzie (email@example.com ).
On the first of November, a professional development day ( PD day), a regular event for teachers and trainees taught by an invited senior teacher. This day of learning is always an enjoyable event. Many teachers come along to ensure that they can maintain the required hours of training each year.

We look forward to welcoming you to NELIYI's 2015 Annual General Meeting tomorrow (Sunday 28 June) at the Harringay Club, 50 Tottenham Lane, London N8 7EE. The meeting will start at 12.15 (earlier than originally announced), just after the workshop with Aubrey Maasdorp (spaces available, starts at 9.15 am). We don't expect the meeting to go on after 1pm, but it is in an important occasion, since we expect to be adopting our newly revised Constitution.
Thank you to all who have voted for that; if you haven't voted, you still can, at the AGM, or by email beforehand to firstname.lastname@example.org - that's NELIYI's Chair.

As the new year gets underway, our Committee says a grateful farewell to Judith Simo, who is stepping down after over two years with us on the Committee's workshops team. Late last year, we also said goodbye to Sev Kanay, who has worked hard for NELIYI in several roles, not only organising our workshops, but Chairing NELIYI. A warm thank you to both of these valued teacher members.
Back in the workshop team is our Secretary, Nancy Clarke, who once more will act as organiser for the teachers' Professional Development Day - thank you, Nancy. And we are delighted to welcome Naomi Braybrooke onto the Committee, taking on the role of Workshops organiser. Events will soon be appearing on this website!

On 14 December 2014 BKS Iyengar would have been 96 years old. Although he died four months ago, we still celebrate his birthday and his memory. His life and teaching will continue to inspire us for the years to come.
We are fortunate in having members of the Iyengar family and other fine teachers to guide us still, and so we delight too in marking Geeta Iyengar's 70th birthday (a week ago). Geeta celebrated by holding a special course of teaching in Pune this month, which a few NELIYI teacher members were privileged to attend.
As the year draws to a close, NELIYI is getting ready for a busy year ahead, commemorating Guruji in our ongoing practice, and supporting the teaching of Iyengar yoga in our local area.
