Welcome to Yogatree
We are Lydia Holmes and Edgar Stringer, a married couple living and working in North Wiltshire. We have been practicing Iyengar Yoga since 1991 and teaching since 1997. Both of us are qualified Level 3 Senior teachers, mentors and assessors for IYUK and continue to train under the guidance of pupils of BKS Iyengar.
We named our studio Yogatree in dedication to our teacher BKS Iyengar. Inspired by his book The Tree of Yoga which uses the analogy of a tree to explain the eight limbs Yoga Philosophy of Patanjali.
We have been teaching Iyengar yoga classes in village halls and art centres for twenty years and it has long been our dream to own our own studio. In 2017 we bought a 1930’s former telephone exchange in Corsham and Edgar has worked tirelessly to renovate the building. We are delighted to that Yogatree studio will re-open for classes on 17th May.
Due to COVID 19 we also teach online classes for those unable to attend live classes.
Lydia is teaching a Menstrual and Menopause workshop on 20th June 11-2pm. This will be held at Yogatree studio for 8 students and will also be streamed online for those who cannot attend in person.
