'Dru has helped me improve my physical wellbeing by alleviating neck and back
pain. It has helped improve posture, motivate me to exercise regularly and lose
weight, tone my body and eat more healthily.'
Margot, Dru Yoga undergraduate, Australia.
'It took a while for me to realise the deep transformative power of the subtle
movements and visualisations.'
Jon, research scientist and Dru Yoga graduate, Sweden.
Dru comes from the Sanskrit word dhruva, which refers to the stillness
that can be experienced in Dru Yoga.
In this stillness we are able to sit back from anything that may be happening around us, and see and act from a point of clarity and inner calm.
Dru Yoga includes classical yoga asanas (postures), pranayama (the science of breath), mudras (hand gestures), positive affirmations, empowering visualisations, relaxation and sequences performed in a flowing style. What is unique to Dru are specially designed Energy Block Release sequences. These are graceful flowing movements that are designed to dissolve blocked energy at all levels and rebalance emotions. There is a strong emphasis on keeping joints relaxed and soft during movement (as in tai chi). This creates flexibility and a free flow of life-mind energies. Another strong emphasis is on maintaining a flexible spine with awareness of its supportive role in the postures.
