SIOBHAN EZRA I first came to Iyengar yoga in the mid-1980s when I was working in the City and in desperate need of some form of exercise to alleviate the stress and exhaustion of my job. I have been teaching regularly since 2006 and classes are held in my lovely, garden view studio in Hampstead, NW London. I am sensitive to a student’s needs, particularly beginners or those with limited experience, and I bring a sympathetic and un-daunting approach to my teaching. Students always work hard in my classes but leave feeling exhilarated with a body that has been stretched and challenged in the way that nature intended.
