Hi, I am Michele!
I first started yoga 10 years ago, after the birth of my first daughter. I starting taking part in postnatal yoga classes and found that they helped me calm my new mum anxieties and also helped me get back into shape
After a few months, I started going to “normal” yoga classes and, years later, when I was pregnant again, I attended pre-natal yoga, then post-natal yoga and finally my normal evening classes again. It was the first time I had stuck to something for so long!
I started practising at home and I realised that yoga was really making my days easier. Things that normally would have annoyed me didn’t seem to get to me as much and I was a calmer and happier person. I was hooked!
I decided to start training to become a teacher and pass to others what I love so much about yoga: the calmness it provides, the so-elusive “being in the moment” feeling that creeps up on you during a class without you even noticing it, the delicious – or not so delicious – feeling that my muscles had been stretched in depth the morning after the class…

Dru yoga really embodies what I like about yoga, it is inclusive – everybody can do Dru yoga, relaxed and encompasses both the physical and mental aspects of yoga. Anybody can step into a Dru yoga class and get something out of it, be it a stretch, a moment of peace, some sense of connection or a little nap at the end of the class!
With TreeLight Yoga, I am teaching fun, approachable and relaxing yoga classes that are suitable for all abilities. I also provide private and corporate classes on request.
