Dru Yoga Teacher dip: Dru Yoga Meditation Teacher dip. YOGIYOU dip.

“I came to yoga over 20 years ago when pregnant with my first child, it has carried me through the joys and challenges of motherhood and life in general. It is a great physical and emotional support. And it also looks after my body beautifully! I qualified  as a Dru Yoga teacher in 2003 and have continued to add post graduate trainings in both yoga and meditation, developing my knowledge and experience ever since, it’s a life long, wonderful journey and will always be with me”

The beauty of Dru Yoga is that it combines flowing Energy Block Release sequences and postures designed to free the body, bringing strength, flexibility and balance to the whole. Dru focuses on the health of the spine in particular, which make it beneficial for back sufferers and people recovering from injury.
The yoga is both gentle and flowing but also dynamic, students are encouraged to ‘listen’ to their body, going with it not against it.

Rachel is also a qualified Dru Meditation teacher an often includes meditations in specific workshops.

“ Whatever age you are, however stiff the joints and muscles of the body are, Dru yoga will ease your body gently into a place of improved comfort”

The word ‘Yoga’ means ‘Union’ between body, mind and our interconnectedness with all of life. The purpose of yoga practice is to find “ Stillness”
