Join me for a morning yoga class in Bingley which will help you to create a healthy and supple body and mind. This easy-to-practice yoga uses slow and flowing movements to improve core stability and flexibility and to release tension and stress.

What Should I Expect?
Everyone is welcome; I teach a fully instructed class that doesn’t require any prior knowledge of yoga or flexibility (so great for beginners).
My classes have been described like this: “Dru Yoga seems to be all about restoration and inclusiveness. Movements are slow, deliberate and therapeutic, and focus is very much on establishing a mind-body connection to enhance overall feelings of relaxation. You are encouraged to reach the stage you are able to, working with and accepting your abilities”
And the classes will evolve in response to those that come along, so take part and experience a new way to stretch and relax.

What is Dru Yoga?
Dru Yoga is a style of Hatha Yoga, which is influenced by Tai Chi and Qi Gong, Pilates, Isolated Active Stretching and other techniques to keep the body and mind healthy and strong, to build resilience inside and out.
Who Can Attend This Yoga Class?
Classes are open to all. They are inclusive of ALL body types, genders and levels of fitness. Beginners, including those who have never tried yoga before, are very welcome. Don’t worry if you are tight, tired or nervous – this is a friendly, body positive class that is non-judgemental and non-competitive.
What Should I Bring?
If you have a yoga mat, please bring this with you. A limited number of yoga mats will be provided, but you are encouraged to bring your own as this is more hygienic. If you need to borrow or wish to buy a yoga mat, please email email@example.com.
Where Is This Yoga Class?
Classes are held in the upstairs room of Church House, opposite the All Saints Parish Church in Bingley. Church House is at the end of the terrace, just a little further down Old Main Street from The White Horse pub. Entrance to the class is through the door at the side of the building.
How to Get Here
There are a few two-hours free on-street parking places in front of Church House and in the neighbouring streets. There is plentiful three-hours free on-street parking on Keighley Road, near The Shama.
Please do not park in the courtyard behind Church House as this is private.
The venue is VERY EASY to access on public transport and is about a 5-minute walk from Bingley Train Station. There are also a number of buses that serve this part of Bingley town centre including The Shuttle 662 and the AireLine 60.
What Do I Bring?
Here’s a quick checklist on what you need to bring to class:
- Layers of clothing. You’ll warm up in the class but will cool down in relaxation
- A yoga mat (if you have one, if not email me to reserve)
- A blanket (to keep warm in relaxation and for your knees in kneeling poses)
- A bottle of water (in Dru Yoga we encourage you to stay hydrated throughout the class) or a reusable cup as there is a kitchen to access hot water (which I highly recommend drinking during your yoga practice)
Please try to arrive a few minutes before the class starts so you can settle and choose your spot.
It’s My First Yoga Class…
Excellent news! If this is your first, or one of your first, yoga classes then I am absolutely thrilled you are coming. This blog should fill you in on what you need to wear and bring with you, and above is a handy checklist for this class. More questions? Drop me an email
I’m not flexible!
It doesn’t matter. Truly it doesn’t. Flexibility is a benefit brought about by yoga, not a pre-requisite for practising it. You don’t need to be able to touch your toes, heck you don’t even need to be able to reach your knees.
Equally, if you are hyper-mobile I can work with you to build strength and not over-stretch.
Don’t Forget to Book
Booking is a great way for you to commit to your yoga practice, and for me to know who is coming. Currently, this class is very popular and spaces are limited so advance booking is essential. If the class you want to attend is full, please add yourself to the waiting list as spots frequently come available last-minute.
