Dru Yoga and / or Meditation teacher in Colwyn Bay United Kingdom
I first stepped onto a yoga mat in 1999, at a local Hatha Yoga class with my most influential teacher to date, Barbara Occleshaw. I felt that there was something powerful in this practice. From that day on, wild horses would not stop me from getting to my Wednesday night yoga class!
12 years later I discovered Dru Yoga, a flowing style of yoga that has evolved from Hatha. I started a weekly class in Bethesda and in November 2011, I began my Dru Yoga Teacher Training and began teaching in April 2013. I then went deeper with Dru Meditation Teacher Training.
I have also completed teacher trainings in Partner Yoga at the Unity Studio in Brighton, 'Daring To Rest' Yoga Nidra with Karen Brody and Yin Yoga with Jackie Quayle at The Yoga Bank in Widnes.
I have developed my own style of teaching from all my different teachers. Hatha and Dru Yoga are the main styles I have practised and my yoga is a mix of these two.
What I find works for me is what I teach. I try to be authentic in that I teach directly from my own experience. My language is invitational; we go on a journey together in each class. I don't often 'adjust' students, preferring to just give verbal instructions about alignment so that each one of us in the room finds our own Asana (comfortable seat).
In every class we work with moving the body in time with the breath, so our yoga practice becomes a moving meditation. I always include a 15 minute relaxation at the end of every class and often a short seated meditation.
