The online classes have been a life saver for me. Edgar's Thursday morning experienced class is pitched at a variety of abilities ranging from super flexible to someone like me. I have a lot of experience but lately am somewhat restricted by an arthritic hip. Edgar is very attentive to all students in the class, even in the online setting. His explanations are really clear which is so crucial when we're not able to be in the studio together. Thank you!

I attended Edgar and Lydia's advanced classes in person for a year, and since lockdown I have attended online classes with Edgar. Having studied with a range of other Iyengar yoga teachers before, what I particularly appreciate the precision of the feedback that I receive in my poses, which always helps me to deepen my practice. I also really appreciate the care and detail with which lessons are structured, which helps me to get the most out of even the more advanced poses. Thank you Edgar and thank you Lydia! I will be back for more in person!

I love Yogatree classes. Excellent teaching, friendly and experienced teachers, in a beautiful and well-equipped Corsham studio or via Zoom. The classes are the highlight of my week and have helped keep me sane during lockdown.
