The Monday class and the Tuesday class are now in-person.  Booking is essential for these classes so numbers can be managed.

The Wednesday class is staying online for now.  If you have attended my classes regularly in the past you are welcome to get in touch about joining this class.  It is otherwise not currently open to new students, but if you would like to join it when it restarts please let me know.
With regret, the Thursday evening and Friday classes are now closed.
All on-going classes currently have waiting lists.

If you have any questions do get in touch.

What to bring to a class

Wear comfortable clothing that is easy to move in.  As rooms are now ventilated before the class. and during class when temperature allows, they can feel chilly/draughty.  I recommend wearing layers, and having warm socks and two blankets for the relaxation.

Please bring a yoga mat, or a blanket or towel to stand on.
A blanket or two 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.  You can try some warm-up movements in this video from my YouTube channel Light Up Your Life Yoga.

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. An example is this ancient sun sequence, called the Golden Eagle Sequence in Dru Yoga.

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.  You could try this 25 minute relaxation to bring a sense of peace.
