Dru / Hatha Yoga
This class is a beautiful combination of both Dru and Hatha yoga suitable for any age or ability. Beginners are more than welcome and also those who may have restricting injuries as alternatives are always given.
Dru comes from the Sanskrit word dhruva, which refers to the stillness that can be experienced in Dru Yoga and Dru Meditation. In this stillness we are able to sit back from anything that may be happening around us, and see and act from a point of clarity and inner calm.
What is unique about Dru Yoga?
- Joints are kept relaxed and soft during movement (as in tai chi). This creates flexibility and a free flow of subtle energy.
- In Dru Yoga all movements originate from the spine because a flexible, healthy spine supports your entire yoga practice.
- 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’.
Breathing techniques (pranayama) are included and the class finishes with a guided healing meditation / relaxation.
We all feel calm, peaceful and yet energised for the day ahead at the end of this very balanced class.
