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, the 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.
We are running a series of Intermediate Workshops. Our next workshop is on Sunday 6th December 10am-1pm with Lydia.
Please contact us to book and we will send you the link.
Due to the new lockdown all of our yoga classes are being taught online via ZOOM from Thursday 4th November.
Covid-safe live classes will resume as soon as possible at the studio with social distancing precautions in place.
For those who cannot attend in person, we will continue to run a reduced timetable of online classes.
