Dru Yoga is a graceful and potent form of yoga, based on soft flowing movements, controlled directed breathing and visualisation.
Dru means ‘still point’, it is the refuge we all seek where we can be free from the stresses and strains of our modern world.
With its foundations set firmly in ancient yogic tradition, it works on body, mind and spirit-improving strength and flexibility, creating core stability, building a heightened feeling of positivity, and rejuvenating your whole being.
The aim of Dru Yoga is simple, to help relieve the enormous stresses and pressures of modern-day living. It is designed to be practised by people of all abilities, all fitness levels and all age groups, it is a style of yoga that can be quickly dipped into or learnt in more depth over a lifetime.

My love of yoga began in 2006 when I started practicing Hatha yoga to compliment my busy lifestyle working as a nurse and participating in competitive sporting activities. Following a serious illness in 2011, I struggled to recover and in 2013 was diagnosed with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome/ME (CFS/ME). Yoga practice became an important part of my rehabilitation alongside Graded Exercise Therapy and I found that with daily practice I was able to start to manage my recovery and symptoms better. During this time I discovered Dru Yoga and combined with my regular Hatha Yoga class, I started to feel more energetic, relaxed, focused and was hooked! I have personally experienced the healing benefits of yoga and was inspired to start training as a Dru Yoga teacher in 2016 at the International Dru Yoga Center based in Snowdonia, North Wales. I want to share the wonders of Dru Yoga with others and am particularity interested in yoga for CFS/ME, in the workplace, for sport and for general health and well-being.
