Light Up Your Life Yoga

Yoga to relax your body and calm your mind


Due to Covid-19, all classes will continue online for now.
If you have attended my classes regularly in the past you are welcome to get in touch about joining an online class.
The online classes are not currently open to new students, but if you would like to join a class when it restarts please let me know.  All classes currently have waiting lists.
If you have any questions do get in touch.
The classes this term are focussing on the spine.  We will work with stretching out muscles and tension from the spine, and on strengthening the upper back muscles which are crucial for good posture.

All classes are suitable for beginners. All classes are drop in, which means you are welcome to come along whenever you can make it, although if you are able to come regularly you can save money by paying in advance (see below).  Please note  all the classes except Friday are currently full – to join the waiting list please contact me, or for a list of links to find other local classes click here.

Gentle Yoga for aches and pains this small class is particularly suitable for people who want gentle, relaxing movement. It will suit people who do not want to stand for a whole yoga session, or who would prefer to sit throughout. [On the last Friday of the month, the class is taken by Olivia Rigby]

What to bring to a class

Wear comfortable clothing that is easy to move in.
Yoga mats are provided, but if you have a mat please bring it.
A blanket can be good for the relaxation at the end of class, so you can stay warm.
It can be beneficial to bring a bottle of water because you might feel thirsty during the class.

What happens in a Dru Yoga Class

Each class starts with some gentle movements which warm up the muscles and make it more comfortable to stretch them. There is then a sequence of soft flowing movements that will release tension stored in the muscles and joints. Following the sequence there will be some yoga poses or another sequence that will work to further release tension or to strengthen the body or perhaps improve balance. Finally, each class ends with a deep relaxation that helps body and mind absorb the benefits of the yoga, giving you a sense of deep well-being.
