Dru comes from the Sanskrit word "Dhruva" and is the north star, the still point around which the universe revolves.
It is the same stillness that can be experienced in Dru Yoga and Meditation.
For between class practice, click below (the yoga presented is either by other Dru teachers or from a different tradition that resonates with my style of practice.

Zoom Sessions open 10 minutes before official start time to allow for setting up and chat. Presentation classes are taught without stopping and (within safety limits) participants are welcome to do their own thing without being observed or corrected.
Interactive classes are more personal and I may stop to watch the participants and offer individual corrections and adjustments. It is up to participants to choose whether they have their camera on or not. However, I recommend cameras on for interactive classes in order to get maximum benefit from the session.

Email [email protected] if you would like a yoga class at your club or company.
I take bookings for individual instruction, small groups and one off sessions. Why not get together with a few friends or work colleagues and have a yoga party? Great for clubs, hen nights and wellness events.
Sessions by zoom until Covid restrictions are lifted.
Popular options from traditional mat yoga include Chair Yoga, Mindfulness and Laughter Yoga.

From £30ph for regular bookings
From £50ph for one off sessions
