Hi, I'm Jane, I first came across Dru Yoga in 2001 after the birth of my son. At that time, I was suffering with post-natal depression and anxiety, but I don't think I had ever really felt worthy.
After my first Dru Yoga class with Mona Fairholme, I felt so good, I floated home! I couldn't put my finger on it, but the flowing movements and breath, combined with gentle humour and compassion seemed like magic to me.
Proud To be a Dru Yoga Teacher
To cut a long story short I decided to train as a Dru Yoga teacher and was proud to qualify in 2006.
Dru Meditation was the next step for me, taking the teachings of Dru Yoga to more depth and I became a qualified meditation teacher in 2010.
The holistic style of Dru Yoga and Dru Meditation helped me to not only overcome depression and anxiety, but gave me the confidence to set up Lakshmi Yoga, teaching yoga and meditation in Leeds.
Fifty Plus and Active, Like Me
I love teaching students who are fifty plus as I can relate so well to that age group. I consider myself to be a fit, active fifty plus year old, as are most of my students. Although ability varies I can see how greatly people benefit on so many levels and how effective Dru Yoga is for back pain, which is so prevalent.
Dru Yoga has helped me to totally transform my life, and that is why I run Lakshmi Yoga, to make this inspirational yoga and meditation teaching available to a wide range of people of all abilities.
