Hi There Eve, Jatwilla, and Betty,

About recognition: In the UK there are two registries as mentioned above in this thread. How ds the Independent Yoga Network exist if British Wheel of Yoga is the one and only registry? There is a clever deception here.

Although British Wheel of Yoga (BWY) would have you think they are the only game in town. Also, BWY won't recognise a non-UK credential even if it comes from India. BWY has cleverly played at making themselves appear to be an arm of the government and they don't want anything that's not British.

There is room for a second opinion here. You could contact the Independent Yoga Network. For advice on teacher registration and insurance email the registrar, Wendy Jones at

If you have no success try phoning Dr. Pete Yates on 01902 424048. Mornings preferred. Or email him at You'll get answers straight from the source.
