"I find yoga an excellent way to get that ‘feel
good’ factor it helps me to feel energised, supple, refreshed and
it helps me to relax. I have enjoyed starting yoga again and will try
hard to use my self discipline to keep it up and even practise at home.
I have not done dru yoga before but so far have found I like the way
are linked together to make a flowing movement."
I have going to yoga classes on and off for about thirty years, I have
also been to tai chi classes. I’ve been attending Olga’s class
for nearly three years and have found that the dru yoga way of doing many
of the postures very
helpful. I have increased mobility of my shoulder joints and have made
some progress with my hip joints, I particular enjoy the energy release
yoga there is always more to the stretch more flexibility to be attained.
There is always deeper relaxation and goodness needed. In yoga you can
see how far you have come yet how far you still have to go. Monday nights
help with this life long journey"
When I heard about the dru yoga class I
thought I would love to go but I didn’t really want to go alone.
But I decided to take the plunge and was very glad I did. I will never
forget the feeling I had going home that evening in the car it was such
a calmness and feeling that is hard to explain. I just wanted it to stay
with me. Yoga was something I always wanted to do for a long time but
just never got round to it.
The benefits to me are being more supple and able to control stress
and it helps with a painful back that I have had on and off for years.
But the most important benefit is that I don’t seem to think about
my past a lot as before but instead look to the future.I think you would
call it inner healing. I hope that yoga will be a bigger part of my life
as time goes on and I am sure I will be a better person
I consider myself very lucky to have joined my local dru yoga class,
it has certainly made a difference to my life at several different levels.
At a purely physical level it has meant that I no longer take medication
for arrhythmia and of course I am much more flexible.I now have a general
feeling of well being most of the time.
I used to be fairly stressed out teacher but I now find that I am much
calmer and much more patient both in and out of the classroom. Because
I now feel calmer and more energised I am able to be more compassionate
At a spiritual level I feel that I am rediscovering my inner self and
experiencing many more moments of real peace and acceptance.
I was feeling a bit ‘off it’ and feeble on account of
my inner ear disorder which tends to bother me at this time of year and
I nearly decided not to go to yoga, however once there I almost immediately
felt better and went home feeling relaxed and peaceful and my ear felt
calm. I always feel relaxed during and after Dru yoga ...
Yoga to me is 1 ½ hours to leave the modern hectic world behind
and to redress the balance. On leaving the class the sense of calm peace
and joy is wonderful and keeps you going through the week until the door
can be closed on the world for another 1 ½ hours.
I have found Dru yoga has helped to keep my asthma at bay it helps control
breathing by breathing deeply and slowly I can feel where the breath

I find that through dru yoga I gain spiritual and physical well being.
The other classes I have attended have concentrated on physical movement
and trying to perfect positions. I know that in dru yoga we are still
trying to perfect positions but I find my mind is concentrating on what
is right for me. I like the fact that we are encouraged to think positively
whilst practising positions and movements.
As well as the advantages of feeling supple and in better physical shape
than I would do if I did not do yoga, I do feel more positive, relaxed
and more at ease with the fact that my body is getting older and aches
and pains can be coped with.
Just to say that this was an absolutely fantastic day. Everyone
really enjoyed it. Olga is a superb instructor. We learned lots and also
had the opportunity to sample some massages for ourselves. Brilliant!
It was great to have the week off last Thursday and to have someone else
organise the girls.
The reaction of the guides was amazing and the calming effect very evident.
Self esteem issues were covered in a sympathetic manner and everyone
I was able to walk the next day and in fact felt rather good.
