Ruth Boaler


Dru Yoga teacher trainer and Physiotherapist

Ruth began practising yoga 30 years ago and her passion to want to help people’s health and wellbeing led her to train as a Physiotherapist in 1985.

During this time she discovered Dru Yoga, and went on to qualify as a Dru yoga teacher in her early twenties. Since then, Ruth has continued to work within the NHS in Wolverhampton, helping countless people to regain the freedom to move and to understand how to care for their body. Ruth uses a many-modal approach to healing, including up-to-date physiotherapy methods, the use of yoga and muscle balance and cranio-sacral methods. She has pioneered Dru yoga classes for people with back pain for several years in the NHS and has helped design Dru Yoga programmes for research studies involving the NHS and businesses in North Wales.

Ruth has taught on both undergraduate and postgraduate Dru Yoga courses for the last two decades, nationally and internationally and is a senior tutor on the Dru Postgraduate Back course.  She is a qualified cranio-sacral therapist, and has a love of music, meditation and yoga scriptures.
