The Iyengar Yoga Studio

The Iyengar Yoga Studio has been a centre for yoga in East Finchley since it was opened on 1 January 2007 by teachers Patsy Sparksman, Gene Wilcox and Wendy Sykes. Classes are conducted in a building designed by award winning architect Dean Hawkes and dedicated to Iyengar yoga.

The studio offers classes to suit all levels of experience, as well as therapy classes and a session for younger people aged 13-18. Mats and other equipment are supplied, so there is no need to bring your own.

Information about the timetable and classes can be found on the Timetable and Guide To Classes pages. You can also download our current timetable here: TIYS downloadable class timetable September 2017


The Iyengar Yoga Studio is an Affiliated Centre of the Iyengar Yoga Association UK and every teacher is a fully certified Association member. For more details about teachers at the Studio click here.
