” I have been attending Pippa’s Dru Yoga classes on a one to one basis for over 3 months now and I can honestly say that it is one of the best decisions I have made.
Because I suffer from some very painful and debilitating conditions including arthritis, fibromyalgia and osteoporosis I doubted that any of the postures assumed in yoga would be possible for me , but that was before I met Pippa …..
Pippa is a very special person , and despite my limitations , during these past weeks she has patiently guided me through gentle stretching exercises with a keen awareness of how every position is affecting my body. Not only does she have an impressive knowledge of anatomy , her directions during the various postures are given with a gentle calmness which is enabling and positive.
I am now becoming aware of a subtle change in my body and in myself which is entirely due to Pippa . I feel more in control of the different muscles and parts of my body, my breathing has improved, my coordination is better and I am now working on my balance which has been a problem for some time.Another positive change is in how I feel ; I am more flexible, calmer , considerably less stressed and my sleep has also improved …..in other words quite a transformation .
For me a very important part of the lesson is the relaxation session which Pippa takes me through before the end ; I have found it to have a profound effect on me . It takes me into a deep sense of peace and calm , almost like a “leaving the body ” experience .
Afterwards I find my usually aching muscles more at ease and much more relaxed which is an amazing feeling.
Pippa works extremely hard to ensure that she is giving of her very best to everyone she teaches. She has a beautiful spirit and is a first class teacher; I would have no hesitation in recommending her highly to anyone interested in this therapeutic and gentle form of yoga.
I have had several 1-1 yoga sessions with Pippa and found her knowledge, experience and understanding exceptional. She takes great care to assess individual health requirements and tailors each session accordingly. During the yoga practice she watches and checks progress carefully, ensuring optimum benefit is gained. All this is followed by comprehensive notes for personal practice. I can highly recommend her skills and abilities.DR
I have been going to Pippa’s class for a while now. I can honestly say that her yoga classes have changed my life.
Pippa is a wonderful yoga teacher, I feel a connection to her when she teaches. I feel at peace, but also energised, my mind is calmer, I worry less, my body feels more in tune and I feel more youthful and able to cope with life.
Dry Yoga is very special, Pippa’s way of teaching is amazing, she takes time and great care to ensure I do the postures correctly without me doing any harm to myself and explains the benefits of all we practice.
Last year I wanted to hide away, but with Pippa’s help I feel like a flower growing stronger each day with grace, ready to face the world. I feel more grounded and happy. Thank you Pippa, you are very special.
I have attended Philippa’s classes since the start and I find her very pleasant and knowledgeable about her subject matter and a great teacher.
I have more flexibility, strength and energy and I also find myself less stressful.
The classes are very relaxing and I have made new friends along the way. Since doing the Tuesday class, I have now found her Thursday class more strenuous but equally as enjoyable.Teresa
I have been attending Pippa’s yoga classes for 6 months and have found the whole class very beneficial not only in mind, but also in body and spirit. Gentle movements have improved my posture and flexibility. I would recommend her classes and suggest 2 sessions per week would work wonders!!JW
I can thoroughly recommend Philippa’s classes. She has a gentle and supportive, encouraging teaching style.
Dru is really helpful in rebalancing the mind and body. The techniques are easily learned and can be practiced at home to help alleviate stress, tension and to improve posture and balance. My core strength is much improved since starting Dry Yoga two years ago and I will definitely continue with it.Claire
I’ve been attending Pippa’s classes for a couple of months now and I’ve absolutely fallen in love with it.
Pippa is such a wonderful teacher.
She has a way in which she teaches that is not only calming and supportive – as a group. But I feel she connects with and cares for every individual on a one to one basis. Teaching with respect, whilst promoting self-confidence and self-worth.
I feel the class centres me and prepares me for the week ahead feeling more grounded, thankful and aware. I suffer with anxiety, fibromyalgia, chronic pain and a thyroid condition, practicing has not only improved my physical health but also my emotional and mental wellbeing massively.
As it is so adaptable in terms of ability I would encourage anyone and everyone to give it a go. I feel so much more contented, confident, peaceful and grateful, I could now never see myself not practicing Dru Yoga and I’m so glad I was introduced to it by the lovely Pippa.’RMW
I really enjoy the structured format of Philippa’s Dru Yoga class. Her teaching is very clear and concise with alternative moves given to enable me to work within my own limits. I like the venue, practicing close to nature helps me to relax and switch off from the stresses of the day.Julie
I go to Philippa’s intermediate yoga class on a Thursday night. If you want to improve your core strength and balance in a careful and gentle manner then I can fully recommend this class.
Philippa will guide you through what seems to be almost casual positions, but through careful attention to posture and breathing the moves are very effective and achievable. Each week I notice a gradual improvement.Tina
Philippa offers an inclusive, nurturing and cohesive programme of Dru Yoga. Her lessons are suitable for all levels of experience and she combines a gentle approach with a progressive and strengthening regime that ensures all students exceed their expectations.
The environment is beautiful, sporting views of some of the most entrancing aspects of the Shropshire Hills.
The equipment Philippa provides really enhances the relaxation experience of her classes.Chris
