Dru Yoga teacher
I taught a six week Dru Yoga Therapy programme to a client who had uncontrolled epilepsy and chronic pain - which prevented him from sleeping more than two hours at a time. He now takes no painkillers and sleeps all night.
Dru Yoga and therapy
The Dru Yoga approach is based in yoga therapy. All Dru Yoga practices are designed to use the panch-kosha, or five layer system that is integral to understanding the causes of illness and help find yoga solutions.
