Dru Yoga classes with Keighley and Craven Athletics Club
Runner or not, you might be struggling with tight muscles, nagging injuries, stress, back, neck or shoulder pain… Sound familiar? Dru Yoga has been proven to help with these conditions and improve your overall health and wellbeing at the same time.
These Dru Yoga classes are held in conjunction with KCAC running club and will be focused on slow yoga for releasing tight muscles, stretching, and strengthening for runners and athletes, but are open to all, whether you are currently a runner or not.
They are open to the general public and will be inclusive for all body types and levels of fitness.
“I found the session really beneficial. I have tried yoga on a few occasions before but have always found it difficult as, being relatively inflexible, it has always been difficult even to get into a starting position, let alone any further! This was really easy and progressive, it was focused on the needs of runners and it really felt good afterwards, physically and mentally. I’m looking forward to the undoubted benefits it will bring, not just for running and cycling but for life in general.” – John, Keighley and Craven Athletics Club.⠀
The classes take place at The Venue at University Academy Keighley (details below).
Mondays and Wednesdays (term time only) 7 – 8 pm
Prices start at £4 per session for KCAC members and £7 per session for non-members.
About the Classes
These Dru Yoga sessions will help you to create a healthy and supple body and to enjoy being mindful and improve your breathing whilst running. This easy-to-practice yoga uses slow and flowing movements to improve core stability, flexibility and help release tension. This can improve performance, reduce injury and increase stamina.
Everyone is welcome. I teach a fully instructed class that doesn’t require any prior knowledge of yoga or flexibility (so great for beginners). The classes will evolve in response to those that come along, so take part and experience a new way to stretch and relax.
Dru Yoga is a style of Hatha Yoga, which is influenced by Tai Chi and Qi Gong, Pilates, Isolated Active Stretching and other techniques. The aim is to keep the body and mind healthy and strong, to build resilience inside and out.
Classes take place in the Auditorium, which is in ‘The Venue’ of University Academy Keighley (formerly Greenhead School). There is a large free car park directly outside the entrance to The Venue.
The Venue, University Academy Keighley, Green Head Road, Utley, Keighley, BD20 6EB
