Each week of our six-week journey together involves a gentle practice integrating mindful meditation, gentle and restorative yoga, somatic therapy and psychotherapy techniques. We will explore practical tools, tips and experiences to help us work through the symptoms of anxiety, stress, trauma and grief.  These techniques shed light on how to regulate our emotions and nervous system, connect to the wisdom of our body, mobilise stagnant energy and release deeply held tension.  Through this embodied, trauma conscious experience we learn to approach ourselves with kind curiosity opening to a deeper understanding of ourselves and leading to greater self-acceptance, self-kindness and ease.

A little about my recent journey:  In 2019, after reading The Body Keeps the Score, I travelled to Massachusetts to study with Bessel van der Kolk (the author, and a leading expert on trauma). Bessel’s teaching gave me so much insight into myself, it was an invitation to learn more and it changed my life. It allowed me to feel deeply and to find compassion for myself, more compassion for others and a deep desire to support trauma survivors on the challenging journey to becoming whole.

Whilst there I studied Trauma Sensitive Yoga with the Trauma Centre’s David Emerson and Jenn Turner, Chakra Psychology and Somatic Therapy with Anodea Judith, Radical Acceptance with Tara Brach and Therapeutic Restorative Yoga with Jillian Pransky. Since, I have studied Integrative Somatic Trauma Therapy and Healing Trauma with an amazing collaboration of trauma therapy experts including Peter Levine, Stephen Porges, Pat ogden, Arielle Schwarts and many more, incorporating trauma therapies including Focusing, Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, Polyvagal Theory, Internal Family Systems and Hakomi. I am currently studying the Master of Psychotherapy.

It was the connection back to my body and my inner processes that opened me to more compassion, awareness and ease.  It was my yoga practice and 860+ hours of yoga trainings that led me to explore more, including, somatics, emotional anatomy and psychotherapy.  It is the integration of these experiences and studies that bring us to wholeness and form this Mindful & Somatic Yoga Therapy journey. Supporting us on our journey to becoming whole: Body, Mind, Heart & Soul.

This course is an integration of ancient and modern wisdom, of body & mind.  It is not in place of therapy, rather holistic support to your healing journey. Join me and welcome yourself home to body, mind, heart and soul.

What people are saying…. (from our Google Reviews)

I highly recommend this 6 week yoga course. I went to the course with limited expectations having gone through years of various therapy’s. By week 5 something transformational happened which is hard to put into words. There was a huge sense of letting go, immense emotions, release and a gaining of greater love for myself and my journey.

I have begun to appreciate my journey to healing is not just through ‘talking’ it’s through connecting to who I am. Not switching off to others and the ‘noise’ but switching into my being, and internal sense of self. Caring for and nurturing that inner child.

Since the course I’ve stopped my medications (with my therapist’s support), I no longer suffer the extreme anxiety ‘shakes’, my mind is able to switch off. I sleep better. I feel calmer. Not always … but compared to how I was earlier this year I feel a whole new person. The stress of our COVID world seems a distant memory but I know if we end up in another lockdown situation using the skills I have learnt it will be a much calmer, easier time. Thank you Pru.

Firstly The Retreat in normal times is an amazing space. This course is run by Pru and you couldn’t ask for a more caring and motivated instructor. If you are on a journey of healing, there will be something in this program that resonates with you. Pru is knowledgeable in her subject, always kind and thoughtful. I can only recommend this highly! It could only have been better if it was in person and not online due to lockdown.

I am so glad to have experienced Pru’s 6 week Mindful & Somatic Therapy course for anxiety trauma & grief. I had high expectations & they were surpassed. I knew Pru has an extraordinary wellspring of knowledge , compassion and a gift for teaching/guiding.
The course is beautifully crafted and delivered.
I discovered much more than I had expected to about myself , where my body keeps the score & practices that enable me to be with discomfort.
Im writing this a week after the last session. Ive noticed several times that despite the stormy seas Ive been navigating ther’s much less sense of overwhelm. I am going about my business, persisting strangely calmer and more self compassionately, . That’s a damn fine return on investment!
Thankyou Pru

As usual, Pru delivers a first class and caring experience. This approach of managing trauma from the inside out makes all of the difference.

The Retreat Yoga Studio is a hidden gem of a sanctuary, run by wonderful Pru who puts her heart and soul into everything for her students. I recently participated in the 6-week Mindful & Somatic Yoga Therapy course online, which was beautifully run and a really meaningful experience. Pru has also provided private group classes for my work team, which was tailored perfectly to our needs. If you’re looking for a holistic, restorative, welcoming and comfortable studio, definitely visit The Retreat!

I recently finished my 6 weeks program Mindful & somatic yoga therapy and it was exactly what I needed. Pru is an amazing human being who has created a safe space and hold us all through this journey. It was a very moving experience and I recommend it ! Thank you Pru. The studio is splendid, I love the skylight on a sunny day but also on a rainy morning. Cleanness and covid-safe measures were also a highlight, feeling extra safe during this uncertain time. Thank you Pru and see you soon <3

Recently I completed the Mindful and Somatic yoga course at The Retreat Yoga studio in Camberwell. Pru is a wonderful yoga teacher who has created this course. On a personal level I was able to explore a deeper awareness of myself and allow for self discovery and healing. Throughout the course I had the ability to repeat the classes in my own time which allowed me to really embody this experience. Thank you so much Pru.

Sinead, 11/2021

I recently completed a 6 week course in Mindful and Somatic Yoga Therapy with Pru Trundle. Pru is a wonderful and supportive yoga teacher and so knowledgeable about yoga and somatic therapy. Her course was so interesting and helpful about gaining insight into the our bodies and how we can use yoga and mindfulness to support our healing journey. I highly recommend The Retreat Yoga Studio as a studio with compassionate and wise teachers as well as a nurturing environment and a welcoming community.
