About Helen Trubridge

Helen lives in Nottingham with her husband and young son. She first came across Dru Yoga after the birth of William, when she decided she needed something to take her mind off the pressures of being a new mum. 

Helen comments: "I didn't really care about the style of yoga, I just knew I needed yoga as I was so tense and my body ached all the time. The class was of course Dru and it just felt so different that I loved it. The teacher, Susan Hardwick, has since become a really good friend and supportive ear."

Her love of the gentle, flowing style of Dru led Helen to Wolverhampton, which is the "home of Dru" in the Midlands. In two years, spread over 16 weekends, she completed 200 hours of training - learning everything from asanas (traditional yoga postures) to amazing flowing sequences, breathwork and relaxation techniques. 

Helen qualified in 2015 and has since taken a postgraduate course in Dru Yoga for Kids and Teens.

Yoga aside, Helen trained as a journalist and worked for many years as a local radio reporter before moving into public relations; working in the NHS and charity sector. 

About Dru Yoga

Dru Yoga is a gentle and flowing style of yoga, which is very powerful for releasing tension in the mind and body. It has its roots in hatha yoga and includes classical yoga postures (asanas), pranayama (the science of breath) mudras (hand gestures), positive affirmations, empowering visualisations and powerful sequences performed in a flowing and dynamic style. 

Dru Yoga classes are tailored to the level of the individuals within the class and usually contain Energy Block Release Sequences (EBRs), graceful flowing yoga sequences, pranayama, relaxation and occasional meditation.
Dru Yoga can be practised by people of all fitness levels and abilities. It offers a therapeutic approach which can help to relieve pain and increase energy levels. Whether you are recovering from, or living with, an injury or illness Dru yoga classes offer restorative gentle techniques which bring the body into balance and reduce stress.
