About Dru Yoga

About Dru Yoga
Positive health; Positive wellbeing; Positively Dru.

Dru Yoga is a graceful and potent form of yoga, based on soft flowing movements, directed breathing and visualization. With its foundations set firmly in ancient yogic tradition, Dru works on body, mind and spirit to rejuvenate your whole being.

It improves strength and flexibility, increases core stability, builds a heightened feeling of positivity, and brings deep states of relaxation.

Designed to be practiced by people of all abilities, all fitness levels and all age groups, Dru is a style of yoga that can be quickly dipped into or learnt in more depth over a lifetime.

How is Dru Yoga different?

Dru Yoga has its roots in hatha yoga, and includes classical yoga postures (asanas), pranayama (breath control), mudras (gestures), positive affirmations, empowering visualizations and powerful flowing dynamic sequences.

Classes are tailored to an individual level and usually contain Energy Block Release sequences (EBRs), graceful yoga sequences, pranayama, relaxation and Dru Meditation.

What is unique about Dru Yoga?

spinal-twistJoints 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-practice, flowing movements that 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.

Within the flow of movement, Dru Yoga creates powerful moments of stillness which we call ‘Dru points’.
