Dru comes from the Sanskrit word "Dhruva" and is the north star, the still point around which the universe revolves.


It is the same stillness that can be experienced in Dru Yoga and Meditation.



For between class practice, click below (the yoga presented is either by other Dru teachers or from a different tradition that resonates with my style of practice.

Every Tuesday morning at the Olivewell Store, Gidea Park

As the Olivewell room is no longer available for us to use the Tuesday classes will no longer run in their previous format.  I will still be in the downstairs coffee shop space and anyone who wants to join me is welcome.  We can enjoy Nusret's delicious Ginger Tea (or other beverage of your choice), talk yoga and maybe even practise pranayama, mudras (hand seals) and mantras.  There will be no charge - just come along (children and pets welcome too).  I will be there between 11.00am and 12.30.


Sunday Stretch and Flow is just on zoom this Sunday but from next week (5th December) you can join me in person at the RAF Club in Carlton Road, Romford (free parking available in nearby bays, surrounding street (towards Gidea Park) and Lodge Farm car park and Asda car park).   


Book for this Sunday (zoom only), next Sunday (in person OR zoom option) online or via email.  Booking for the coffee morning not essential but appreciated as it gives me an idea of how many people are coming.  Nusret will put out extra chairs if necessary!

Email [email protected] if you would like a yoga class at your club or company.

I take bookings for individual instruction, small groups and one off sessions. Why not get together with a few friends or work colleagues and have a yoga party? Great for clubs, hen nights and wellness events.

Sessions by zoom until Covid restrictions are lifted.

Popular options from traditional mat yoga include Chair Yoga, Mindfulness and Laughter Yoga.

Cost negotiable depending on location and requirements but as a rough guide:
