Dru yoga has its roots in traditional yoga, which has been practiced for thousands of years, and includes classical yoga postures (asanas), pranayama (breathwork), mudras (gestures), positive affirmations, empowering visualisations, and powerful, flowing sequences. Its emphasis is on gentle flowing movement, maintaining soft joints with awareness of the breath, allowing free-flow of subtle energy.
In Dru yoga, all movements originate from the spine, because a flexible, healthy spine supports your entire yoga practice; the spinal waves and spinal twist, core features of Dru, enhance spinal health and vitality.
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”.
Dru comes from the Sanskrit word, Dhruva, which refers to the stillness that can be experienced in Dru yoga and Dru meditation, from where we can act from a point of clarity and inner calm.
