EastWestYoga is the home of Gerry Chambers and Lynda Purvis, Iyengar Yoga teachers. Gerry is based in Exeter in Devon and Lynda is currently living in Aotearoa/New Zealand.

We teach yoga in the tradition of BKS Iyengar, a modern yoga master, author of Light on Yoga and many other texts, and the world’s most renowned teacher of the art, science and philosophy of this ancient subject.

Yogacharya BKS Iyengar was born in Bellur, in Karnataka, India on 14 December 1918 and died in Pune on 20 August 2014.

On our website you will be able to find out more about us and our current teaching schedule in the UK and NZ.

We are certified teacher members of IYUK, the governing body for Iyengar Yoga in the UK, and are qualified at Senior level.


“In your body is the mountain, Meru, surrounded by the seven continents;  there are streams too, lakes, mountains, plains and there are the two cosmic powers, the one that destroys and the one that creates and all the elements: ether, air and fire, water and earth.  Yes, all these things are within your body; they exist in three worlds…..only the one who knows this can become a true yogi.”

(Shiva Samhita)
