 Have you heard of Dru Yoga? - Sharron Smith


If you haven’t heard of Dru yoga before you might be learning more about it soon because a series of four Dru yoga taster sessions are planned for June and July in Harby Village Hall. 

Dru yoga is a form of yoga that is accessible to all regardless of fitness and flexibility.  At its simplest level it involves moving all the parts of your body in all the directions they naturally go, which feels good, aids flexibility and builds muscle tone.  It is thought to helpactivate your body’s natural healing mechanisms and keep systems in balance through gentle flowing movements coordinated with the breath.  Regular practise of yoga is a route to a wide range of proven benefits, but everyone’s body and experience is different so Dru yoga is sensitive to individual needs.  If you are interested, you can learn more about Dru and enjoy some free video practises at www.druyoga.com

Theupcoming taster sessions are planned for Tuesday evenings, 7-8pm on the 6th and 20th of June and 4th and 18th of July 2017.You are welcome to attend any single class or as many sessions as you like.  These are beginner level classes aimed at both men and women.  Most movements will be manageable for all but people who think they are not flexible enough or they cannot relaxcan choose with advice and support in class, to adapt movements, use props or just observe anything they really struggle with.  Learning to be comfortable with listening and responding to the body’s messages is another way that Dru yoga can aid personal wellbeing.

As a student yoga instructor, I am able to start teaching after successful completion of my first year of training.  I will continue to train in the coming year and will be interested to hear feedback from those who attend about their experience of the classes.  If the taster sessions are welcomed and the local community would support more, there is the possibility of a regular, weekly Dru yogaclass.

For your comfort in sessions, please bring a mat to practise on and a rug to stay warm during the relaxation part of the class.  You might also want to bring a small cushion to use as a support and any yoga props you might already own, such as blocks, straps or wedges.  It is fine if you donot own such props as I have a few I can share.Classes will cost £5 each.

I will be happy for you to email me at druyoga16@gmail.com if you plan to join a taster session. In return I will send a health form for you to complete.  However, you are also welcome to turn up without prior notice; in which case please arrive 10-15 minutes early to give yourself time to complete the health form.
