I first started Yoga about 18 years ago when a friend introduced me to a Hatha Yoga class. I thoroughly enjoyed this as it helped with the back issues I had at the time, kept me fit and healthy and complemented my running. I also loved the relaxation and “me time” in my busy life.
I was introduced to Dru Yoga three years ago and I loved the flowing movements, the emphasis on strengthening my postural and core muscles and increasing my flexibility. My energy levels have increased too!!
I worked as a solicitor for many years and I realise how much tension is stored in the body through sitting all day and from work related stress. Dru Yoga with its emphasis on flowing movement, breath work and deep relaxation help relax body and mind and give you the strength and flexibility to deal with every day challenges.
Come along and try!!
I am a qualified Dru Yoga Teacher and I look forward to teaching you this wonderful yoga style. I hope you will enjoy Dru Yoga as much as I do!
Dru Yoga provides an energetic, positive and complete approach to health and wellbeing.
Dru Yoga classes are tailored to the level of the individuals within the class.
There are many reasons why Dru Yoga is unique including the following:
1. Joints are kept relaxed and soft during movement creating flexibility
2. All movements originate from the spine. A flexible, strong and healthy spine is important for the whole body and important in yoga practice.
3. Core stability necessary for creating strength is an important focus in every Dru Yoga class.
4. The flowing movements create powerful moments of stillness. Dru comes from the Sanskrit word dhruva, which refers to the stillness that can be experienced in Dru Yoga.
The television doctor Dr Hilary Jones has been quoted as saying “Dru Yoga should be available in every GP surgery”

There have been a number of research projects of the benefits of yoga on workplace stress and back pain.
A new study shows that yoga is significantly effective for improving wellbeing and resilience to stress in the workplace. A team of researchers working at Bangor University found that a six week programme of Dru Yoga reduced anxiety and fatigue, while increasing emotional well-being and resilience to stress
