What is Dru Yoga?
Dru Yoga is a graceful and potent form of yoga, based on flowing movements, directed breathing and visualisation. With its foundations set firmly in ancient yogic tradition, Dru works on body, mind and spirit improving strength and flexibility, creating core stability, building a heightened feeling of positivity, and deeply relaxing and rejuvenating your whole being.
Why should you join a Dru Yoga class?
- Your back will feel better
In a survey of 450 Dru Yoga students, 72% found Dru Yoga reduced their back pain. Dru is designed to be very safe and works to balance your back muscles to help clear discomfort and avoid injury.
- You will feel blissfully relaxed and renewed
Dru Yoga is a unique combination of activation, energy block release sequences, asanas, and a long deep guided relaxation which together create a great feeling of well-being.
- You will feel less stressed
A 2011 study published in the Scandinavian Journal of Work Environment and Health showed that Dru Yoga significantly improved wellbeing and resilience to stress in the workplace, compared to a control group. In the world’s first randomised controlled trials into the benefits of yoga in the workplace, Dru Yoga has been shown to significantly decrease back pain, increase performance under stress, boost confidence and emotional wellbeing.
- You will gain higher energy levels
If you’ve always wanted more vitality and a zest for life, then Dru Yoga will release blocked energy and put a spring in your step! The Dru approach to traditional hatha yoga postures enables the flow of energy to revitalize the body from inside out helping you feel great, very quickly.
- Dru is for everyone!
No matter what age, shape or size you are, you’ll be able to do Dru Yoga. You won’t need to compare yourself with anyone, and we never talk about the perfect posture. Instead we always encourage many ways to do a yoga pose depending on your unique ability. The emphasis is on you.
- You’ll learn how to sort your emotions
Many people find that they can transform difficult emotions like anger, lack of confidence or grief through Dru’s yoga sequences, giving access to their inner strengths.
- Dru touches body, mind and spirit
You won’t just be touching your toes with Dru. It’s based on ancient yogic wisdom and includes meditation, mudras (hand gestures) and pranayama (directed breathing) which bring a deep sense of inner peace, no matter how busy you are.
