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.

What can I expect from a Dru Yoga class?

A typical Dru Yoga lesson involves the following:

1. A short, fun activation and stretches to warm and prepare the body for the sequences or postures (Asanas).

2. An Energy Block Release (EBR) usually follows.  EBRs are easy and pleasant to do and, when performed correctly, they can dissolve emotional, mental and physical energy blockages.

3. Flowing postures (Asanas) and/or sequences.  Each posture and sequence has specific therapeutic benefits for the body and mind.

4. Pranayama or breath awareness and control to relax the body and mind.

5. Relaxation.  To nicely round off the class, there is 10-15 minutes of relaxation that allows you real time to release pent-up tensions, giving your body a chance to balance and repair itself.

Regular practice of Dru Yoga can help improve your health and fitness by giving you the tools to deal with the stresses of modern day living.
