of Dru Yoga classes, workshops, retreats and events in Otley, Menston and Burley in Wharfedale, West

I am a Dru Yoga and Dru Yoga Dance teacher (Dip DYT, MRDY, BSc), trained in Leeds (200hr Diploma 2012). I am insured
and DBS checked (CRB as
was). Although I have experience of a variety of yoga traditions and like any teacher these influence my teaching, I
teach Dru yoga, a style of yoga that's flowing, fully accessible, kind and that everyone can experience
and benefit from.
I have been teaching
classes, workplace yoga, retreats and workshops full-time since 2012 throughout Wharfedale, Yorkshire and am a yoga
tutor for the WEA (Workers Educational Association) and support tutor on the Leeds Dru Yoga Teacher Training Course. I also
lead movement to music for people with dementia and learning disabilities. I believe in teaching with warmth and creating
a safe and nurturing environment for each person to get in touch with their body, breath and mind, and hope that people leave
my class relaxed and smiling inside and out.
I have grown up children, I love walking,
being in the mountains and travelling in our VW camper 'The Yellow Peril', I have a degree in psychology
and am also a musician (flute, tenor sax, vocals) with bands Summercross and Restless Natives
