What people say...

Raymond Niemeyer

Dru Yoga has changed my life and my perspective about movement. The course has given me the strength and beauty of moving in a different way and I apply all this beautiful work to my clients as a physiotherapist. 

Liz Winchurch
Dru Yoga teacher

When I started the course I was quite anxious, stressed and exhausted. By the end I had become a different person, connecting to deeper parts of myself and becoming a lot more compassionate towards myself and others. 

Karen Neal

The tutors here have inspired me to share the insights I have gained throughout the course, which have been to manage my fibromyalgia and to live with less pain and fatigue. I know I’ll be able to share my story to help and inspire others.
