Lydia Holmes and Edgar Stringer

Lydia and Edgar recently opened Yogatree Studio in Wiltshire. They have been practising Iyengar Yoga for thirty years and teaching since 1997. They are qualified Level 3 senior teachers, mentors and assessors for IYUK and continue to train under the guidance of pupils of BKS Iyengar, both in India and the UK.

Lydia and Edgar love teaching and learning yoga. Their enthusiasm is reflected in their classes, which are lively, focused and rejuvenating. Edgar and Lydia’s teaching styles are distinct, yet complementary. Their teaching experience enables them to respond appropriately to the needs of individuals in each group. They have been teaching Heliotrope Holidays for a decade and always look forward to the opportunity to go deeper into the practice in this calm and beautiful environment.

"Their depth of understanding and their ability to transfer their knowledge and illuminate the practice of yoga is incredible.”  Sarah Dietz
