What our students are saying

The RAFA yoga sessions have been great for my posture and mindfulness.

 The classes are relaxing and help me reset for the week ahead.
Thank you Mary!  I will be booking in my next class again!  

Lisa (Sunday Stretch and Flow - 6th Feb 22 - Silver Member) 

Thank you for my individual session. It was very good, I was able to see where I need to put more attention and adjust the exercises to my personal needs, it was really very helpful.

Lidia (1-1 Individual In Person Session - Jan 22 - Gold Member) 

Mary gave a great yoga session at R.A.F.A today. R.A.F.A is a comfortable, airy venue for the much needed stretch and flow after the festive feasting. I can start my week with positivity and a good sense of well-being from the yogic breathing, stretch and affirmation. Looking forward to rejuvenating my body and soul next Sunday. 

Maria (Sunday Stretch and Flow - 9th Jan 22 - Gold Member) 

Thank you so much Mary for visiting our club.  We all enjoyed your Dru Yoga demonstration and hopefully will continue with what you showed us!
