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 inspired by BKS Iyengar’s book Yoga Vrksha (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 in North Wiltshire 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 ever since.
We are delighted to announce 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.
Edgar is teaching a workshop on 29th May 2-5pm for Mental and Emotional Stability. This will be held at Yogatree studio for 8 students and will also be streamed online for those who cannot attend in person.
