ABOUT OUR TEACHERS
This is the Iyengar Yoga certification mark. Only fully qualified and insured Iyengar Yoga teachers who maintain their teaching practice at the highest level can display this logo and teach Iyengar Yoga. Trademark used with the permission of Mr Iyengar.
Each of our teachers have been qualified for over twenty years and are very experienced; they are all insured members of the UK Iyengar Teachers Association and also have membership of either one of the Scottish Institutes for Iyengar Yoga.
Fiona started Iyengar yoga classes when studying in Edinburgh in 1985 with Elaine Pidgeon and others at the Bruntsfield Centre, thereafter with Anke van Bevren in Aberdeen and Ailsa Peck in Inverness. She qualified as an introductory teacher in 1995 and a Junior Intermediate Level 3 teacher in 2003. In 2005 she visited the RIMYI in Pune and attended the afternoon "medical" classes with Gurujyi which inspired her to further her therapy training with Stephanie Quirk between 2004 and 2008.
Donna started Iyengar yoga in 1987, studying under the guidance of Ailsa Peck in Inverness and the Edinburgh Iyengar Yoga Centre. Donna gained her Introductory Level Certificate in 1995 and has been teaching ever since. She has studied over the years with many Iyengar teachers but in July 2005 spent one month in Pune, India studying at the Ramamani Iyengar Yoga Institute which was a life changing experience. Her passion for yoga compliments her work as a Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapist by enhancing an understanding of the mind and body connection.
Fiona qualified as an Introductory Level teacher in 1995 having undertaken training with Anke van Beveren in Aberdeen and the Edinburgh Iyengar Yoga Centre. She ran classes in Orkney prior to moving to Inverness a few years ago.
