Dru Yoga - How do I deepen my yoga practice?
In Dru Yoga we often talk about the koshas, or layers of the body (physical, energy, emotional, mental and bliss). In this video, I describe the different layers of the koshas and how you can use them to deepen your yoga experience.
Let me introduce you to chyawanprash – an ancient Indian elixier - used extensively in Ayurveda.
Having just returned home from Africa and a fairly entertaining flight in which the seats were sooo uncomfortable. So, jet lag and the effects of flying are an important subject for me.

Dru Yoga - Vipariti Karani: a supported inversion
This powerful yet gentle yoga posture is classed as an inversion, but for those of us who think ‘up-side-down’ means head stands, wheels and peacocks; this posture is most definitely a welcome relief!
Annie Jones has been practicing this posture for years: “Vipariti Karani is one of my favourite postures, indeed, the whole of my personal yoga practice builds up to this point.

This is the place where all your food arrives in preparation for distribution! The more relaxed this area is, the better our absorption ability. The more easily we absorb food, the greater the amount of nutrients entering the body and the less we need to eat in order for the body to feel nourished and satisfied. In other words – relax and you will naturally eat less!
