Hi! I'm Helen and I teach Dru Yoga.
Why Dru? Well, I came to Yoga relatively late in life and I remember approaching my first Dru Yoga class with trepidation: Would I be too fat? Too stiff? Too old? Visions of fashionably lycra clad, svelte, bendy 20 somethings played in my imagination. I walked into the class...and most people were just your average human being - some were thin, some not so; some were bendy, some were less so; some were older than me and some younger and most were just dressed for comfort!
I left that class walking on air, I felt so relaxed and at peace (my body knew that it had moved in different ways, but felt great for it). So much so that, from the very first, I tried to practice most days and when the opportunity presented itself to train as a Dru Yoga teacher I was thrilled to be able to learn to pass on this beautiful, gentle form of Yoga.
But what IS Dru Yoga
Dru Yoga has its roots in Hatha Yoga and incorporates yoga postures, flowing sequences, visualisations and affirmations, working with our breath to calm and still the mind and reinforce a positive mindset. It is very accessible to all and gradually improves strength, flexibility and core stability. Classes are adapted to ensure that all students are able to participate and benefit.
And what happens in a class?
Each class usually consists of 4 main sections:
A short sequence of warm up movements
Energy Block Release
Various sequences of movements designed to encourage and direct the energy flow throughout the body
Asanas (postures) and Sequences
What most people think of when they envisage yoga!
A guided relaxation for body and mind.
So why not come along and try a class? Trial classes are just £6.
I really look forward to meeting you!
If you would like to arrange a private class for you as an individual or for a small group of friends, please get in touch.

"A great class to help restore some calm to body and mind in the middle of the week. Suitable for all abilities and the deep relaxation session at the end of the class is wonderful."
