What is Iyengar Yoga?

Iyengar yoga is a method developed by Yogacharya Sri B.K.S Iyengar, which focuses on the precise alignment of the body, working deeply and with awareness in each asana (posture), to gain the maximum benefit to your flexibility, strength and wellbeing. Yoga blocks, cork bricks, or belts may be used to help students practice asanas safely and in a way that is beneficial to each individual or ro gain a new understanding of the asana. Through Iyengar Yoga practitioners aim to unite the body, mind and spirit, and attain  physical and mental well-being. This is a classical form of yoga, rooted in Yoga Philosophy and teachings of Patanjali.

How to find our Yoga Studios

Classes are run from 2 locations our studio at Stratfield Brake – Kidlington, and from the Pavillion at Cutteslowe Park. 

Stratfield Brake

All our classes are run from the Studio we use at Stratfield Brake off Frieze Way (OX5 1UP). It’s in south Kidlington close to the Sainsbury’s supermarket just a few minutes by bus from our clinic down the Banbury Road. There’s extensive parking at the sports pavillion, and it’s a large well ventilated space, perfect for Yoga (and Pilates).

To get to the studio head into the pavillion and go up the stairs on your left. As you get to the top of the stairs Sophia runs her classes in the large room on the left as you’re looking at the bar. The door is left open during class times and there are some signs too.

Frequently Asked Questions

These are some of the more frequent things we get asked about:

What kit do I need to attend?

For these classes you must bring you yoga mat, 2 yoga bricks, 4 yoga blocks, and 1 yoga belt.

What should I wear?

It’s a good idea to wear loose fitting clothing that you can move freely in. Most class goers wear a tshirt and track suit bottoms, or active clothing.

Bare feet are perfect for both Pilates, and yoga.


What should I do if I need to cancel?

Get in touch! As soon as you know, let us know. You can do this by phone 01865 558561, or by email: There is also a cancellation option in the software we use.

LATE CANCELLATIONS: unfortunately if you cancel within 24 hours of the class starting you will be charged for that class.

How do I book in?

We use TM3 software to run our class timetable, and you’ll need to set up a profile, buy credits and then book into the classes you want to book into. Alternatively pop into the Clinic and our helpful receptionists will be able to get you booked in.

I haven't done this class before will that be a problem?

We run 2 Iyengar classes a Mixed ability class – suitable for beginners and others looking for a basic class, and an intermediate/advanced class that is for those with 3+ years of regular Iyengar Yoga experience.

Do you have a refund policy?

Sure, as we everything we do, it’s all about meeting your expectations. Let us know if you need/want a refund and we will organise it for you.

Can I try the class out, then pay if I enjoy it?

Sorry no. You can come along by booking in for a single class, but we’d recommend taking the plunge, in fact we’re so sure you’ll enjoy it if you don’t think it’s right for you after the first class we’ll refund your money.

Are there any online classes at the moment?

Yes, both our Pilates classes (Claire Cullen) and our Iyengar Yoga classes (Sophia Argyris) are online, and have proved really popular. It’s very liberating working out in the comfort of your own home!
