• About Us

  •  My name is  Jane O’Halloran.  

    I have practised various forms of yoga over the years, but first came across Dru Yoga in 2001 after the birth of my son. At that time I was suffering with post natal depression and anxiety.

    After my first Dru Yoga class with Mona Fairholme, I felt so good, I felt as though I actually floated home! 

    I wanted to know more about this form of yoga that made me feel so wonderful! I decided to train as a Dru Yoga teacher and was proud to qualify in 2006.

    The holistic, nurturing style of Dru Yoga helped me to, not only overcome depression and anxiety, but gave me the strength and confidence to live my dream and set up Lakshmi Yoga, teaching  yoga and meditation in  Leeds. I love teaching students who are fifty plus as I can relate to that age group and the joy and wisdom as well as the challenges it brings.

    I consider myself to be a fit, active fifty plus year old, as are most of my students. I decided that some people around our age may feel a little intimidated about joining a yoga class, so I want to reassure you that you will fit right in to our classes.

    We hold yoga and meditation classes for over fifties across north Leeds including, Adel and Otley. For more information please visit our class information page here.

     Lakshmi Yoga Reviews

  • Dru meditation was the next step for me, taking the teachings of Dru yoga to more depth and I became a qualified meditation teacher in 2010.

    So, Dru yoga and meditation have become an integral part of my life allowing me to keep healthy in body, mind and spirit. It helps me to keep a sense of perspective when faced with the many challenges of life. 

    Dru has helped me to totally transform my life, and that is why I set up Lakshmi Yoga, to make this inspirational yoga and meditation teaching available to a wide range of people of all abilities. We teach across North Leeds, including Moortown, Adel and Otley

  • Jane is an excellent yoga teacher, she is a warm, nurturing and welcoming kind of person, with a sense of humour. She teaches the Dru postures very clearly and at an appropriate pace creating a safe and relaxed atmosphere.
