Event description

Description

Dru Yoga is graceful and potent. It's based on flowing movements, directed breathing, and visualisation. It works on body, mind, and spirit, improves strength and flexibility, creates core stability, builds heightened feelings of positivity, and deeply relaxes and rejuvenates your whole being. Dru Yoga is also gentle, relaxing, and focuses on creating an energy which facilitates the body to release, no need to push or force.


Using unique energy block release sequences, sessions work to subtly release energy constrictions which get held in our body, and particularly in our spine. There is also a particular focus on the Anahata chakra (Heart centre) which creates a heartwarming sense of well-being which lends itself to the body unwinding and releasing.

RICHARD SAYS...

Dru Yoga, Yoga of The Soul

Dru Yoga is truly a yoga of the Soul. My intention when I teach is really to get you to connect to an immensely deep place within you where you hold the creative intelligence that you need to connect with that enables you to thrive in your life.

When our mind is busy we literally can’t hear ourselves ‘think’- or in essence hear our ‘deeper self’ talk to us and inform us what we need to do to keep our life moving forward.

Heart Opening

Dru has a fantastic way of ‘opening your Heart’ as it’s gentle which enables you to deeply relax, and when your Heart is relaxed the rest of your being follows suit so your entire body and mind becomes peaceful.

And the other affect of opening your Heart in this way is that it holds the aforementioned precious ‘deeper self’ information, the essence of your being and creative passions and potential within it, so when you are relaxed in this way it amplifies your awareness in your mind of what you need to do in your life. While Dru is gentle, don't confuse subtlety with not being powerful! Some of the most powerful transformations we have are the result of subtle inner shifts which then ripple through our being, our actions and therefore our life.

Embrace The Stillness

While other yoga’s may have a more physical or Asana (posture) focus, the challenge in Dru is to embrace the stillness. And indeed this can be the ultimate challenge! You may be physically very adept, but contacting your inner self in this way can be a new challenge and is a courageous path as when you take your attention inside you also have to embrace your thoughts and emotions that we are often keen to run or be distracted from. It’s a road of self knowledge & self awareness.

Initially lying still against the exquisite stillness of a Dru class can seem to amplify the thoughts and feelings within, but this is just a layer of ‘cloud’ we pass through on the way to a much clearer state of mind, but if we turn away when we are faced with our own feelings what chance do we ever get to see what’s on the other side? Your feelings often have deep intelligence, or indeed just require your attention in order to dissolve and relax, and Dru provides this possibility. The fact that your mind might be racing when you lie down and close your eyes is actually giving you information that you need to relax, not jump up and get on with being busy!


Learn to Love What's Inside

So it’s unlikely I’ll get you to stand on your head in class, but I might get you to listen to, and learn to Love what’s inside it. If that scares you, remember what goes on in your mind is linked to the body, and since Dru is a tremendously relaxing yoga, the strength of the practice in relaxing and harmonising your body calms the mind. So gather your courage and come and see what’s ‘inside’.

Naturally Relaxed

As outlined above, yoga is more than stretching, meditation is more than sitting in uncomfortable positions, and deep relaxation is more than sitting in front of the TV with a glass of red (that just trances you out, with your nervous system still over-stimulated) When you’re busy and stressed, your brainwave patterns and hormones change and life appears to be going even faster than it actually is, so you don’t enjoy the journey as much.
