I have been practicing Iyengar yoga for 20 years. I love sharing this wonderful method with everyone I meet, I particularly value its power to reduce stress and anxiety as well as the aches and pains that we all suffer from generally.
As a movement lover and former gymnast and coach, finding Yoga in my 20s was like coming home! I have been practicing yoga since 1999 and teaching since 2013. I teach all levels, all ages and all bodies including pre and post-pregnancy, injuries and those suffering from disease and anatomical issues. I am also a Teacher Mentor. I have assisted in weekly medical/therapy classes and in 2021 I taught on the Long Covid Medical study. I pride myself on giving students individual care and attention and helping them to find a practice suitable to their body. My love of Iyengar is combined with my love and practice of holistic therapies and movement.

Gipe is a level 3 teacher.
As long as I can remember I have always had an interest in movement and physical health. I have trained as a dancer and theatrical designer. I love to bring humor and a sense of energy to my classes.
I am an Intermediate level 3 teacher who has been studying yoga for 35 years and who loves to teach. But what do those 35 year really mean? I have learnt above all to accept that I need to both push myself and face up to my weaknesses and now I understand that my drive to improve my own practise is due above all to my love of teaching and to my students.
Aimee Lou Magee is a level 1 teacher, teaching in and around the Poole and Bournemouth area, teaching small groups at her home studio and larger groups around the area. Teaching beginners and intermediate students, all aspects of the level one program.
I live and teach in the market town of Hexham, Northumberland. I started practising yoga when i was pregnant with my first child in 2002 whilst living in London. In 2007, after moving to the north east of England, I was fortunate to find a wonderful and inspiring Iyengar teacher - Alicia Lester - through whom I developed a passion for Iyengar yoga. Alicia encouraged me to start the teacher training programme with Margaret Austin and I gave up practising law to focus on yoga (although I do now lecture in law). I feel very fortunate to have had such inspiring teachers and I continue to attend Margaret's weekly teachers class.
I have visited Pune and studied with the Iyengar family and continue to attend weekly zoom classes with RIMYI teachers.
I am membership secretary for the North East England Iyengar Yoga Member Group and am a registered mentor for trainee teachers.
Alaric has been practicing Iyengar yoga since 1983 and teaching Iyengar yoga since 1991. He is certificated by the Iyengar Yoga Association (UK) as a Level 3 Iyengar Yoga teacher. He has been taught directly by Guruji, Geetaji and Prashantaji and received his Senior Intermediate III certification under the old qualification system in 2006.
Alaric has a dynamic and flowing teaching style which is focused and insightful. His experience enables him to give precise individual adjustments and maintain concentrated group focus. He challenges inertia and ignorance with sharpness, compassion and humour.

I’m a fully qualified Iyengar yoga teacher based in Bristol.
I went to my first Iyengar class when I was in my late 20s & it has been a huge & important part of my life ever since. I have sought out Iyengar teachers everywhere I have lived or worked & travelled to India for intensive Iyengar courses.
I love the integrity of Iyengar yoga & the careful attention it gives to alignment which can be transformative; I love too the humility it encourages in those who practise. As a student & a teacher of Iyengar yoga I value its accessibility & the way it can be adapted to work for each individual. The potential for apparently small adjustments to have profound effects on the body, mind & emotions of anyone who practises Iyengar yoga, at any level, energises & inspires my teaching.
I’m also an actor & theatre practitioner with a working life that is unpredictable & ever-changing. I treasure the balance, steadiness & space offered by Iyengar yoga as well as the opportunity to always learn more, discover & develop understanding.

Hello, Iyengar Yoga has been part of my life for the past 36 years. I do my own practise and teach yoga. Until recently I was teaching yoga. Currently, I am looking for a new space and opportunities to again teach.
Amanda Jane Walton
Teaching Iyengar Yoga since 2015
Qualified level 1: 2018
Yoga found me about 2010, It has given me a new lease of life. Yoga inspires me continuously to become healthier, mentally and physically, to be fully present with my life as it unfolds. I did the teacher training course, because immediately could feel the benefits and wanted to help others feel the same about themselves. I qualified as a teacher in 2016. I hope to give back some of these qualities to help improve peoples lives around me, in the emotional well being and physical aspect that yoga can bring... Passing on this beautiful ancient art form.

Andrea Haywood, Level 2 Iyengar Yoga Teacher based in Altrincham and teaching at Cheshire Yoga Studio
Practiced yoga for over 15 years and Iyengar yoga specifically since 2011. Qualified as an Iyengar teacher in 2016, passing the Introductory Iyengar yoga teacher assessment (level 1 and 2). Since the first Iyengar yoga class I attended I was wanted to learn more about the wonderful practice, teachings and journey of yoga.
Iyengar yoga is an excellent discipline and life changing, impacting positively on all aspects of life. It is a joy to teach and help others start a new journey.
I have been practising for over 40 years and qualified at senior 3 in November 2004. I have been to Pune several times and studied with the Iyengar family over many years, in addition to working with many other well known teachers, from this country and abroad.
My student base is varied in terms of age and ability and it is valuable to learn from them – what works for one student may not work for another – being flexible in approach is therefore important, whilst honouring the lineage of Iyengar yoga.

Andrew has been teaching Iyengar Yoga since 2010, gaining his Junior Intermediate 2 certificate in 2015. He continues to study with Senior Teachers to improve his own practice, and refine his teaching style.
As a qualified life coach and facilitator, Andrew is interested in helping others develop their practice through self awareness, observation and reflection. He creates a safe space through which students are encouraged to develop their practice through ‘courage & caution’, ’trial & error’ in order that they can strengthen and fine tune both body and mind.
Andrew is interested in how the tradition and teachings of Yoga can be applied off the mat, out of the classroom and into everyday life.

Ante and Post Natal Yoga
I first discovered Iyengar Yoga whilst travelling in India in 2001. Immediately I was hooked, and upon my return to Glasgow, was delighted to be able to continue the journey. I had tried other forms of Yoga but with my Physiotherapy background, it was Iyengar Yoga that made so much sense as it pays great attention to detail in body alignment and precision of poses. Through continued practice , I soon discovered not only tremendous physical benefits but emotional and mental calm as well. I was delighted when the opportunity arose to study to become a teacher, it seemed a natural step. And so the journey continues. I hope I can do Mr Iyengar proud in sharing this wonderful science with others. I teach both Adults and Children and was Assistant Teacher in the IYUK 2021 Long Covid Pilot Study which delivered Online Yoga for Students with Long Covid. I teach Face to Face, Online and Hybrid Classes
