Ruth’s classes are a real treat.

She has an infectious enthusiasm for yoga. 

Highly recommend.

A great experience.

“  I started Ruth’s yoga class expecting the usual plentiful yoga benefits for my body in response to recovering from CFS. I was not expecting the huge emotional healing process that began. What an utter joy. After completing talking therapy I had now found the missing link to heal that talking couldn’t reach. I thank you Ruth, and so does my heart.”

A little note...... back health

and care


If you are finding you have back ache whether it be tension, stiffness, soreness, sciatica etc..... 

The gentle yoga class will go through gentle strengthening movements and stretches to give you more range of motion and finding nurturing positions to ease a painful back so it can heal quickly.
It is so important to feel safe in our movements..... The aim is to have the freedom to move about doing the things we love without any discomfort. Ruth Bush has completed the Yoga for Healthy Backs training and regularly runs 12 week courses for back health.

I've been attending Ruth's classes for about 14 years. I love them because they not only help me stay flexible and strong, but also give me a chance to pause my busy life and breathe. I really like the lack of pressure to perform or excel, and instead to do what is right for me at that moment. When I leave the class, I feel so much better able to deal with whatever life throws at me.
