At its most simple, Dru Yoga helps relieve the pressures of modern living’
Dru Yoga is rooted in Hatha Yoga principles, and students have commented that it has the flow of Tai-Chi and Qi-Gong, the strength work of Pilates and the therapeutic considerations of holistic practices such as shiatsu and reiki. Slow movements tease tension from the body, allowing you to build strength and flexibility gradually. This yoga is about slowing down – finding time in your day to build strength and resilience both inside and out.
Dru Yoga will help you to relax, unwind and stretch out your body. It can help revive tired muscles, reduce back pain and combat stress. This style of yoga, which is also called ‘No Stress Yoga’ gives the mind and body much needed rest and relaxation, to help you find a still point in your busy world.
Dru Yoga is not just practiced on the mat, it gives you amazing tools to take out into the workplace so that you can stay at the top of your game – focused, relaxed and communicating successfully with your colleagues.
Dru Yoga is suitable for all ages, abilities, shapes, and sizes so it is great for a diverse team. There is no judgement or competition in these sessions so everyone at all levels should feel comfortable and at ease in them.
Dru Yoga sessions follow a simple format. We start with activations to get the body warmed up and leave the desk and 'to-do' lists behind. After that, we practice a simple sequence that helps to let go of stress and be more aware of how we are feeling in our minds and bodies. Depending on the length of the session we may then work with some simple stretches and yoga postures or another flowing sequence. Sessions always end with a short, but very important, relaxation.
