I came to Yoga quite late in life, thinking that I needed to do something to keep myself flexible as I grew older. I attended my first Dru Yoga class and found not only a physical practice, but a complete wellbeing system. From the very first, I tried to practice most days as I felt so good, mentally and physically. When the opportunity presented itself to train as a Dru Yoga teacher I was thrilled to be able to learn to pass on this beautiful, gentle form of Yoga.

After completing a 2 year training course, I gained the Dru Yoga Teacher Diploma in December 2016 and have been teaching classes since October 2015 (as a student teacher). I am also qualified to teach the Dru Yoga Back Care programme and participated in the first Advanced Practitioners’ Diploma training held by Dru Yoga in the UK. As a member of the Dru Professional Network, I am committed to undertake continuing professional development. Dru Yoga has its roots in Hatha Yoga and incorporates yoga postures, flowing sequences, visualisations and affirmations, working with the breath to calm and still the mind and reinforce a positive mindset. It is very accessible to all and gradually improves strength, flexibility and core stability. I aim to provide a friendly, supportive space for all with classes, sequences and postures being modified to ensure that all students are able to participate and benefit.

The Old Rectory Clinic in Iron Acton is conveniently located with easy access from Yate, Chipping Sodbury, Frampton Cotterell, Coalpit Heath, Winterbourne, Westerleigh, Thornbury and the surrounding areas.

I've practiced yoga for many years (after finding myself drawn to it after suffering from back problems). Very quickly after my first class I became hooked and noticed the many benefits, both physically and mentally. I finally decided to fly to India to do my yoga teacher training, during my time there I could fully immerse myself into the spirituality of the practice.

I am Bryony and I have been practicing yoga and Pilates for 15 years. By practicing daily it allows me to feel more light, spacious and free. I am a registered 500 hour Yoga teacher and have a YMCA Level 3 Diploma in teaching Pilates. The benefits of yoga and Pilates are amazing. Both disciplines increase your strength both physically and mentally, improve your posture and balance thus reducing the risk of injury and allow you to connect to your highest self: the best version of you. I teach Vinyasa Yoga, Restorative Yoga and Pilates classes weekly at the clinic.
