Intermediate Teachers

Sunday - 14:30 - 16:00
Zoom / Main room
  • This will be a live class with one of our teachers who will usually be teaching from home.
  • The class will be run through video conferencing software called Zoom. You will receive a link to join the class in your booking confirmation email.
  • For equipment we recommend a minimum of a yoga mat plus 2 blocks, a belt and a chair.
  • If you do not have your own yoga equipment, try alternatives such as books or folded towels for blocks, a dressing gown belt and a sturdy kitchen/dining chair that will not tip or slip.
  • It really is best to have a mat - if not, please use a wooden or lino/vinyl floor.  We do not recommend a carpeted floor.

Meg Laing

This class is only for teachers of new Level 2 or above.

New Syllabus Level 3

In this fifth Zoom session Meg and Elaine will explore how to develop, in a structured way, a regular and meaningful pranayama practice.

This will help to communicate to our own
students some of the possible ways of approaching it.

Unlike in previous sessions, discussion during or after the class will not be timetabled, because it is not conducive to the desired absorption.

Questions and discussion may be conducted via email in the following days if they arise.


  • Chair

Professional profile
Yoga is strong discipline, but it is one that brings constant interest, challenge and delight. We are very privileged to have such a vibrant yoga community in Edinburgh and an atmosphere in which we are all constantly learning from one another. I started Iyengar Yoga in Oxford in 1972 when I was still an undergraduate. When I arrived in Edinburgh in 1974 young teachers here encouraged me to go to Pune. My first visit was in 1977 in the exciting early days of the Institute there and (much to my surprise) I came away with an Introductory teaching certificate from Guruji himself. I gained my Junior Intermediate qualification in 1983 and my full Senior Intermediate in 1996 . I am also a teacher trainer and a senior examiner for the IYA(UK).
