What happens in a class?
Dru Yoga has its roots in hatha yoga and includes classical yoga postures (asanas), pranayama (the science of breath) mudras (hand gestures), positive affirmations, empowering visualisations and powerful sequences performed in a flowing and dynamic style. Dru Yoga classes are tailored to the level of the individuals within the class and usually contain Energy Block Release sequences (EBRs), graceful flowing yoga sequences, pranayama, relaxation and Dru Meditation.
- Joints are kept relaxed and soft during movement (as in tai chi). This creates flexibility and a free flow of subtle energy.
- Energy Block Release sequences are easy-to-practise. Flowing movements help to release tension physically, mentally and emotionally.
- In Dru Yoga all movements originate from the spine because a flexible, healthy spine supports your entire yoga practice.
- The spinal wave and spinal twist are core features of Dru, enhancing spinal health and vitality.
- A deep understanding of core stability is a major focus.
- Dru Yoga works to balance the chakras (energy centres of the body) and access the powerful energy of the heart.
- All courses will run dependent on numbers.
- Full payment for the course must be received prior to the beginning of the course.
- We apologise but once the course has started no refunds are possible. We will do our best to accommodate you in alternative classes.
Whether a participant is recovering from, or living with, an injury or illness Dru yoga classes offer restorative gentle techniques which bring the body into balance and reduce stress.
The gentle, easy flowing sequences of Dru Yoga embrace ancient yogic traditions, which help strengthen the body and uplift the mind and spirit. The combination of uplifting poses will enrich you with positivity and lightness as well as having significant positive effects on your health and wellbeing.
The International School of Dru Yoga is registered with the Yoga Alliance and the Independent Yoga Network (UK).
