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 Intermediate Senior Level 3 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 been working tirelessly to renovate the building ever since.
We are delighted to announce that after three years of hard work Yogatree studio opened for classes in September.
Due to the Corona Virus pandemic a range of online classes are also available for those unable to attend live classes.
Lydia's next workshop is called "Unite" and is organised by Melanie Tholen in Bielefeld in Germany for Friday 29th and 30th January.
Please contact us to book and we will send you the link.
