About Us

The three of us (Patsy, Gene, Wendy) spent two years hunting for a site for our studio before stumbling across a derelict plot with a chequered history on Leicester Rd, East Finchley, close to the junction with the High Road. We bought the land in 2002 and opened five years later on 1 January 2007. The building was designed by award-winning British architect Dean Hawkes  and is one of  East Finchley’s ‘hidden gems’. Behind the modest entrance Dean created a light, calm and beautiful interior that is a pleasure to practice and teach in.

This is our tenth year of serving the local community. Classes are taught by an fully qualified, experienced and committed group of Iyengar teachers whose profiles you can view by clicking here Teachers.

London has had a special relationship with Iyengar yoga since 1968 when it was taken onto the syllabus of the Inner London Education Authority after a tour by BKS Iyengar arranged by his pupil and friend the violinist Yehudi Menuhin.

The Studio is dedicated to Iyengar Yoga and has been granted permission to use the Iyengar name. It is an  Affiliated Centre of the Iyengar Yoga Association UK.
