Discover the still (Dru) point of inner calm
- Calm the mind and restore energy levels through yoga sequences and specialised breathing techniques
- Activate your body’s innate self-healing process
- Experience deep inner stillness
Dru is derived from the ancient Vedic word Dhruva which is the north star or ‘still point’ that emerges spontaneously whilst experiencing Dru yoga and meditation. The graceful, flowing sequences, guided breathing and visualisation promote the free flow of subtle energy. Dru yoga is firmly rooted in hatha yoga with classical postures and pranayama.
Thai Chi Style of Yoga
There are 5 stages within a full Dru Yoga Practice of which the Energy Block Release (EBR) is key to help relieve stress and tension from the whole body, bringing harmony and balance to mind, body and emotions. The EBR sequences are followed by traditional yoga postures (asana), controlled breathing (pranayama), deep relaxation and meditation.
This naturally flowing Tai Chi style of Dru yoga helps to free stress and tension from the body, whilst improving strength. It is suitable for all ages and fitness levels, especially those who respond well to the heart-centred, spiritual and meditative approach to their practise.
