I’m a fully qualified Dru Yoga teacher who is passionate about teaching empowering, gentle techniques to develop strength and flexibility. Dru Yoga has its roots in ‘Hatha’ and its branches ‘In The Stars’** I teach one-to-one sessions in the comfort of your own home, offering you the opportunity to receive gentle support as you discover the many benefits of a personal yoga practice.
Dru Yoga is for ‘Everybody’ and for ‘Every Body’, it creates greater strength and flexibility of the spine, improves posture, increases energy levels and reduces stress no matter your age, shape, size, gender, aches or pains. It combines energising activations, flowing sequences designed to release blocked energy, empowering postures and deep relaxations to leave students feeling revitalised, relaxed and better equipped to face the demands of a busy lifestyle.
One-to-one sessions are 80 minutes in length allowing time for the highly beneficial aspects of personalised instructions and deeper relaxations. There are two prices depending on location:
Within 5 miles of my studio (NG14 6NU)
£50 per session
Between 5 – 10 miles of my studio (NG14 6NU)
£60 per session
My teaching style is nurturing, relaxed and friendly with space for you to work at the level that is right for you, please rest assured that even if you’ve never set foot on a yoga mat before you will receive all the guidance you need to enjoy a nourishing Dru Yoga experience. Please CONTACT me if you would like to book an initial consultation to see how Dru Yoga can help improve your health and wellbeing.
I am also available to teach small private groups at your own venue, please CONTACT me to discuss your requirements and prices.
My own Dru Yoga journey began when I attended a retreat with a friend. I had suffered with lower back pain, joint problems and anxiety for many years, but over the course of the weekend my whole being knew it had found the very thing it had needed for a long time. When I returned home I began attending regular Dru Yoga classes and the following year I began the teacher training. Deciding to heal myself from within was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made, I began a daily practice to rebalance my system.
Over the two and half years I spent studying on the teacher training course I experienced a transformation in my ability to listen to my body and respond to its messages through movement, breath and stillness. I am deeply grateful to now be sharing this learning with my students and helping them to also discover the deeper sense of wellbeing that practising Dru Yoga can bring to mind, body and life.
As a qualified teacher I now volunteer as a support tutor on the teacher training course in Snowdonia to help others become Dru Yoga teachers and walk their own yogic path. If you’d like more information about the benefits of Dru Yoga you can read about current research HERE.
“Yoga is not about touching your toes,
it’s about what you learn on the way down!”
** Dru comes from the Sanskrit word dhruva, meaning ‘fixed’ like the North star (indeed, the North Star is called Dhruva Nakshatra for this reason) which refers to the still point that can be experienced in Dru Yoga and Dru Meditation practise. In this stillness we are able to sit back from anything that may be happening around us, and see and act from a point of clarity and inner calm.
