Dru Yoga - Muladhara Chakra: the base centre

Dru Yoga - Muladhara Chakra: the base centre

sThe Muladhara chakra is our foundation chakra. We often go through our ‘yogic’ life, do our yoga and our meditation, but without conscious effort and directed intention, so our chakras and their imbalances can remain largely unchanged. It is also said to be a centre of rhythm - so things like walking and drumming are said to be very good to establishing balance and regulation in this centre.

RAAAAHHHHH!

Dru Yoga - Swadisthana chakra: base chakra

The seven chakras of the human body
The 7 chakras are the energy centres in our body through which energy flows. The word 'chakra' is derived from the Sanskrit word meaning 'wheel'. Literally translated from the Hindi it means 'Wheel of spinning energy'. A chakra is like a whirling, vortex-like, powerhouse of energy.

Dru Yoga - Sacro-lumbar release

This month we have chosen to share one of the most powerful ways to keep your lower back and spine healthy, flexible and aligned. It is called the Sacro-lumbar release. This sequence is best used as a preventative to back pain, rather than when you are in the acute phases of back pain.

Detox your liver

Every now and again many of us may find we've gained a little extra weight and can struggle to deal with the extra toxins in our bodies.

One organ that is under stress dealing with this extra load is our lovely liver! It is the most important organ to support the detox process, the break down of unwanted fats and it lowers cholesterol, so definitely worth looking after!

Explaining the koshas: layer 1 - physical - anamaya kosha

09-August-2016

Oh! the joys of looking after the human body! When we are young, it all seems so easy.

We hardly seem to have to do anything to keep the body balanced, and can stay up late, eat and drink whatever we want, work hard and play hard. Well, the news is that Newton’s law of cause and affect influences us all. In other words, there is no getting away with anything. Bad habits will catch up with us at some point! Health is not just the absence of disease, it is also about feeling happy, energised and in love with life. What are the symptoms of great health? Here are a few:

It is the sum total of all energy manifest in the universe, all forces in nature, and the powers which are hidden in all beings and lie everywhere around us. There are 3 main ways to harness this invisible force.

Explaining the koshas: layer 3 - emotions - manomaya kosha

09-August-2016

We so often feel that we are at the mercy of our emotions.

This is not the case! Our circumstances may not always be under our control, but the way we respond to life and how we react emotionally most definitely is.  Like our muscles, however, our emotions need training. We need to observe how we respond or react to circumstances and then find tools to re-train ourselves. When unpleasant events occur, we can either choose to hang onto the pain or else to:
