Bring strength and stability into your life

The mountain pose In the 3rd of my blogs about balance, I thought I would look at the importance of muscles to help us stay upright. Posture is a great reflection of how we balance. In our classes we spend time, every lesson, getting you stand correctly, in Tadasana (the mountain pose). We guide you through your body, ensuring that you are stood in alignment. This is so important, it gives us time to find the perfect balance for our physical body, which then naturally eases t

Yoga for a healthy Autumn

Autumn definitely seems to have arrived this morning, here at Inside Out HQ! So it felt timely to share with you some of the yoga we’ll be practicing in our weekly classes during this transitional season. Crane pose is a balance and a forward bend Autumn can be a busy time, back to school or work after the summer holidays, new fitness regimes as we head towards the party season and all the busy-ness that seems to be part of autumn, and it is easy to get swept along by this if

Give your dreams wings

The Archer from EBR3 “Awakening the heart” In my last but one post I was commenting on the Olympics and all the positive things that I felt came out of the event.

Dru-Yoga Book - Stillness in Motion One of the most frequent questions we get asked at classes is “My back feels so much better (or I feel so calm and relaxed, or I always sleep so well…) after yoga that I want to keep that feeling for longer – what can I do at home?” This is then usually followed up with “I’d love to do some yoga between classes but I just can’t think what to do.” I am always really pleased when I get asked this. I’m glad that you are noticing the benefits o

Firm Foundations

Hello and hope you are all well. I had a really busy weekend teaching on the Dru Yoga Teacher Training course in Leeds, where we welcomed our newest in take of “under graduates”. The energy on these weekends is always amazing and the enthusiasm and commitment of these guys was no exception. We can’t wait to share all the wonderful Dru practises with our students but module 1 is all about setting down firm foundations and I think this is so important for us all. One of the pos
