Testimonials

  • This Saturday morning class offers both an oasis of calm and relaxation after a busy week and an invigorating, refreshing start to the weekend. I *found* Dru yoga after years of practicing Hatha yoga and its beautiful flowing rejuvenating sequences have deepened and enriched my practice. It is calming and yet energising at the same time. Sabina is an inspiring teacher and her passion for Dru Yoga is definitely contagious! I'm so grateful for this practice - the benefits are far-reaching in that my mind, body and spirit feel as one!

  • I've been doing the Thursday class with Sabina for a few weeks now and it's very rejuvenating and enjoyable. Sabina brigs a calm energy to the class and with the stretching, breathing and relaxation at the end you leave feeling very energised but also blissed out! Sabina is an excellent teacher and I thoroughly recommend the Dru yoga classes.

  • I am a fat, inflexible 57 year old and I think yoga with Cat Stujit is brilliant. Her Thursday evening yoga sessions remove stress, make me do some excercise and improve my overall fitness. Afterwards I feel great and sleep very well. I would recommend Cat Stujit's Yoga sessions for all ages. Come and find out for yourself.

  • Sabina is great, explains everything clearly and calmly and gives you variations if you can't quite manage the pose. Since I've been doing yoga, my stress levels have gone down considerably and my back feels stronger. I look forward to yoga every week as it's my chance to unwind and relax
