Lydia Holmes and Edgar Stringer are a married couple and teach Iyengar yoga classes in North Wiltshire. We provide yoga courses for beginners, improvers, intermediate and more advanced levels. We offer private classes, including pregnancy yoga, therapeutic and remedial yoga. We also conduct Iyengar Yoga workshops for all levels and special events such as WOMAD festival and yoga holidays.

Yogatree Iyengar Yoga classes are taught in Biddestone, Corsham, Chippenham, Bradford-on-Avon and Bristol. Our courses and workshops attract students from surrounding towns including Malmesbury, Melksham, Malborough, Trowbridge, Calne, Devizes, Colerne, Marshfield, Bath and Box.

Our classes are held locally in Arts Centres and Village Halls. Classes are quiet and non-competitive, combining dynamic exercise with restful relaxation.

We have been practicing Iyengar Yoga for twenty seven years and have been teaching since 1997. We both been awarded the Intermediate Senior Level 3 teaching certificates IY(UK). We are both assessors for IYUK for Iyengar yoga examinations. We are also trainee teacher trainers and have been shadowing Sheila Haswell on her teacher training course for some years in Bristol. We continue to train both in the U.K and India under the guidance of pupils of BKS Iyengar

We are called "Yogatree" because we are inspired by the teachings of BKS Iyengar, particularly his book Yoga Vrksha (The Tree of Yoga) which traces and explains Yoga Philosophy of Patanjali and the holistic health benefits of Yoga.


“Lydia and Edgar were fantastic. By being able to adjust their teaching style according to each participants’ skill level, they kept the sessions meaningful and relevant to the entire group." Chris from Zurich
