Yoga has been in my life for around 22 years when a friend introduced me to a Hatha Yoga class. Over the years it has helped me with back issues, the stress of my job as a solicitor and the challenges that life tends to throw at you! I have always regarded the time on my mat as “me time”, to nurture and restore my body and mind. I also love practising yoga in nature.
I was introduced to Dru Yoga six years ago and I loved the flowing movements, the emphasis on strengthening my postural and core muscles and increasing my flexibility. My energy levels increased too!! As someone who can be quite competitive it also taught me not to compare myself with others and to work within the limits of my own body. This is a philosophy I bring into my own classes.
I love to bring fun to my classes using my favourite soul or disco music to warm you up and hope you leave my classes energised yet relaxed with a smile on your face!
I have the following qualifications:

Dru Meditation Teacher
Post Graduate Diploma in Back Care
First Aid Certificate
Intelligent Yoga with Pete Blackaby weekend CPD Course
Foot Anatomy Workshop with Lesley Dike
About Dru and Dru Research
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”
Dru have been involved in research projects dealing with the benefits of yoga for your back and in dealing with work related stress.
