The CWA Hall on Barber Street will be the epicentre of fitness, mindfulness and fun on Monday and Tuesday, with Dru Yoga and Meditation classes starting on October 10.

The classes are designed to suit all abilities and all ages, from yogi masters to beginners, with tailored programs to suit the individual.

Teacher Di Nicholson said Dru Yoga is based on soft, flowing movements, controlled breathing and visualisation. 

“It works on both the body and the mind, rejuvenating the soul, strengthening core stability and building a heightened feeling of positivity and empowerment,” Di said.

“I began my career as a registered nurse and morphed into natural therapies.

“So often our mind takes control, but if we can find the balance between body fitness and mind control, we are well on the way to a healthy and happy life.

“Dru Yoga will help you learn how to breath efficiently and reach a state of stillness and mindfulness, stopping your mind chewing over the past and projecting into the future.”

Di first moved to Gunnedah in the 1970s from the Adelaide Hills before moving away.

“I am back in Gunnedah and I love it,” she said.

“I am looking forward to being involved in the community and helping people grow strength, flexibility and finding the still place within them all while having a lot of fun.”

Dru Yoga helps improve cardiovascular system, immunity, stress and tension, anxiety, aches and pains, insomnia and joint and muscle stiffness and leaves you feeling energised but calm with a general sense of wellbeing. 

Classes run from 5:30-6:30pm on Monday, 9:30-11am on Tuesday and specialised seniors’ classes from 11:30-12:30 on Tuesday and only costs $10 per session.

Participants are asked to bring their own yoga or exercise mat, rug or towel and water.
