BWY Regions

There are twelve British Wheel of Yoga regions, each led by a Regional Officer.  This structure enables the organisation to work well at a local level.

Within each region there are County Representatives (around 60 in total), with other volunteers taking up posts of Regional Treasurer, Regional Newsletter Editor, Regional Training Officers etc.
