Why is Ayurveda so powerful?
Ayurveda is an ancient science that recognises that everything outside of us affects what goes on inside. The food we eat, the herbs or supplements we take, what we drink, the seasons of the year, the environment around us, even what type of exercise we do and therapies we receive, all have a particular type of impact on our body, mind and emotions. As we understand ourselves better, we notice how our health, relationships and quality of life all improve.
According to the healing science of Ayurveda, every living and non-living thing in the universe is made up of a combination of 5 basic elements—space, air, fire, water and earth. Our human body is also made up of these 5 elements in various compositions. They manifest in the human body as 3 basic principles or subtle energies known as doshas: vata, pitta and kapha.
space + air combine to form vata
fire + water combine to form pitta
water + earth combine to form kapha
This explains why everything outside us can affect us.
Knowledge of the 5 elements and the 3 doshas is essential in order to rebalance and lead Ayurvedically happy and healthy lives. When our constitution (doshas) are in balance, we are able to function at our highest level as human beings. By understanding the positive and negative aspects of each element and dosha, we can design our life in such a way that we can live the life we want to—healthy, happy and fulfilled.

There is a greater understanding and a deeper awareness of the essence of Dru Yoga and how it deeply touches and embraces you to align yourself to the truth with you/the higher divine within you.
I think it has brought me to a place of acceptance of myself because I have gained a deeper understanding of myself. I think I’m on the path of aligning myself to the divine within.
Also, I think this course has developed me as a teacher tenfold. I now have more understanding of my students and I am able to give them the opportunity to explore themselves in their practice.
Dru invites you to work at a much deeper level, it is an inside out journey. When you arrive at that place where you realise the commitment required, jump in, embrace it, live it and breathe it.
This course has been an amazing adventure. Teachers with wide spectrum of qualities, bringing you into guided meditations, breathing, asanas and EBRs. A 14-day journey to inner peace, letting go and allowing to transform. The most beautiful gift you can give to yourself. Thank you Dru!
