My philosophy is you don't need to be bendy to do yoga! In fact, quite the opposite, it's the stiff and creaky among us who stand to benefit the most. I strongly believe that yoga should be for everyone, of all ages and all levels of fitness. I teach in a gentle hatha style that is ideal for beginners, sports people with tight muscles, and older students, as well as more experienced students seeking a deeper practice.

You are welcome to join any of my classes on a drop-in basis, but it is always helpful to drop me an email beforehand. Drop in costs  £10, but I usually offer a 'pass' which works out at around £8 per class, bookable in advance.

  • Tune into your breathing

    Ujjayi (translated as “victorious”) breathing can be both energising and relaxing. The idea is to even out the breath by making a soft sound in the back of the throat, making it regular and smooth. The sound of Ujjayi is created by gently constricting the opening of the throat to...


  • Moving on by standing still

    This week we began in Mountain Pose (Tadasana), taking several moments to work through the body in complete stillness from the soles of the feet to the top of the head. Standing still can be quite hard work! Then we shook out any tension in the muscles, starting gently and...


  • Warm up first for deeper and better stretches later

    Over the years, I have put increasing emphasis on starting my classes with a warm up that moves all of the main joints in the body, before we start to do any posture work, especially anything involving deep stretching. The Dru style of yoga has developed many “activations” which are...
