Caroline Druitt

Hatha Flow - All Levels

Yoga, for me, is so much more than just the physical asana. The knowledge of anatomy, drawing from both Western and Eastern observations, plus the philosophical aspects that inform the practice have changed the way I interact with both myself & the world around me.

I incorporate elements of these teachings in my yoga classes, giving meaning behind the poses and bringing the postures to life.

My classes are focused yet playful and creative, encouraging curiosity and an exploratory nature. Through continued practice I encourage my students to find balance between strength and softness, challenge and ease, fluidity and stillness.
