Chrissie Martindale
Dru Yoga and / or Meditation teacher in Leeds West Yorkshire United Kingdom

Yoga has always been a part of my life; I learned my first moves with my mum as a child. In my 40's I decided I wanted to deepen my practice and studied yoga first with Marilyn Heginbotham on the British Wheel of Yoga Foundation Course and then with Dru on their teacher training programme in Leeds from 2006 to 2008. Since then I have continued my studies both with Dru and with Marilyn including courses on Prenatal yoga, Back care and Wellbeing, and Pranayama. I instinctively felt drawn to Dru from the very first time I saw it at the Yoga Show. I love the beautiful flowing sequences which work so well through the spine. For me personally I find that it awakens the heart energy and enables compassion for myself and for others to grow. I have my own physical challenges through various accidents and injuries over the years and I don't always move as freely as I once did. What I have found over time is it doesn't matter, every time I step on the mat, I work with what's there on the day. You can do too, why not come and feel the magic that's Dru for yourself.

About my classes...

Suitable for beginners or those with some experience. This is a gentle and traditional Dru class typically starting with Activations then an Energy Block Release sequence to release tension in the body. From there we focus in depth on a classical yoga posture (Asana) so that you understand both the benefits and how to do it safely. Students have said that while they may have done the posture before at other classes, they have never really understood how to do it or why they do it in that way before. To finish we would typically do a breathing exercise (Pranayama) or meditation before relaxation.
Wednesday evenings 7 pm to 8 15 pm at Jamyang Buddhist Centre, Clyde Works, Ingram Road. Holbeck. Leeds LS11 9RQ £7 drop in or £36 for 6 sessions taken over a 2-month period. You can pay by either cash or card. There are plenty mats, cushions, blankets and straps at the centre, so you don't need to bring your own unless you want to. Do bring a bottle for water, you can fill it at the centre if you like. It’s good to keep hydrated as you go along.
Jamyang is a FPMT Buddhist Centre following the Mahayana Tradition. I am a Buddhist practitioner myself and both study & practice at the centre as well as being one of the trustees. You certainly don't need to be Buddhist to come along. Yoga is one of several secular activities that the centre holds for the community.
