Yvonne Mowles

Hi I’m Yvonne (aka Eve). I have been working in the NHS for over 35 years and discovered yoga later on in life. I completed my Teacher training course and meditation teacher training course over the Covid years which changed my life as I then flexi-retired so I could teach Dru yoga and meditation and be a support tutor to enable others to find purpose and joy in an ever-changing world.

Michèle Patart

Michèle discovered Dru yoga by chance. After the birth of her first daughter, she was looking for a postnatal yoga class which happened to be a Dru class.

By the end of the first class, she was hooked. The overall impact on her mental and physical wellbeing was such that she decided to train as a Dru yoga and meditation teacher to share its benefits with others. She is passionate about using yoga to cultivate mental wellness and making yoga accessible to all, regardless of age and abilities.

In 2018, she founded Treelight Yoga and has been teaching groups, 1:1, in schools and nurseries, helping students of all ages feel calmer, more confident and comfortable in their own skin.  As part of the Dru team, she has been supporting teacher trainings since 2020 with her down-to-earth, accessible and relatable way of teaching.

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.
