Men! Your yoga class needs you! (Actually you need your yoga class!!)

I’m always pleased when I see positive media coverage of yoga and especially when it involves men.

Russell Brand and Colin Farrell are frequently snapped with yoga mats under their more…

Making time for yourself is not selfish!

  We are rapidly approaching that silly, busy time of year again. Already my diary is starting to fill up (I am such a social butterfly!) and I notice that there isn’t a lot of space left.

Now I’m going to look at ways of relaxing, preparing yourself for a great night’s sleep with some restorative Dru Yoga practices. Before bed is not the time to be practicing dynamic sun sequences!

Sleep like a caveman (although not in a cave!)
