Hi, I'm Alison Hughes

Here's a little about my background.

I began my Yoga journey in 2004, when I was searching for natural therapies to assist me in coping with the challenges of living with chronic pain. I will be forever grateful to have found Dru Yoga.

I have enjoyed teaching since 2008 in various settings, including Health Clubs, the NHS, Mental Health Charites and Colleges in Glasgow. 

Since moving to the beautiful village of Symington in 2013, I enjoy teaching weekly classes and weekend workshops in the village hall, as well as online. It is my passion to help others improve their quality of life physically, mentally and emotionally, as this is what my Yoga and Qigong practice has done for me.

My classes are suitable for all ages and levels of flexibility.  Please do not hesitate to contact me for further information.

I look forward to meeting you soon.

Aum Shanti,

Alison x

About Our Classes

Qigong Yoga Flow classes are a fusion of
Dru & Hatha Yoga & Qigong


Dru Yoga

Dru Yoga is based on gentle flowing movements, directed breathing, visualisation and affirmations. Energy Block Release Sequences have been carefully designed to release tension in every part of the body, rejuvenating your whole being.


Hatha Yoga

The practice of Hatha Yoga (Ha -Sun, Ta - Moon) brings balance to different aspects of ourselves. We practice Activations, Asana’s, Sequences, Pranayama and Guided Relaxation to bring strength, flexibility, mental calm and inner balance.



Qigong (pronounced chi gong) literally means "life energy work". It is a system of self healing that combines slow, gentle movements with breath and mindfulness, to encourage free flow of Qi through our meridians (energy pathways).
