The Radiant Heart - the new EBR8 It is the teacher's responsibility to juggle many different students in the same class and in this CPD workshop we will explore a series of principles and guidelines, which will provide a template for adjusting classic postures to the needs and abilities of all our students.


The Radiant Heart -  Energy Block Release sequence 8 FULLY BOOKED


We all want to ensure that every student gets the most from their yoga lessons. It is the teacher's responsibility to juggle many different students in the same class, keeping everyone safe whilst at the same time giving movements and sequences suitable for a diverse range of flexibility, strength, co-ordination and more!  A tall order indeed and yet one we all rise to, spurred on by our yearning to provide the best experience for our students.

Padma McIntyre will be leading this fascinating and unique workshop on the power of the heart. 

The heart is a key organ of the body. The size of a fist, it generates an electromagnetic field 60 times greater in amplitude to that of the brain. This means the heart is a powerful organ, and its influence far exceeds that of the brain.
On the physical level the heart aids the circulatory system; energetically it balances the organs and creates inner harmony. Spiritually the heart entrains or aligns our system to that of the universe, giving us a sense of total oneness and connection.
The sequence of the 'radiant heart' works on all three levels, empowering the heart to function in an optimum way.
"As we learn to tap into our heart’s intelligence, it increases our vitality, our resilience, and especially our health and happiness." Dr. Rollin McCraty
This workshop will focus on understanding and working with the physical, emotional and spiritual heart. Padma will guide you through an in-depth exploration of the vital Anahata chakra, or our spiritual heart centre, that helps us evolve and gain our freedom. 
The day’s programme will include:

  • 12 movements to open the heart centre and create an optimum healing environment
  • knowledge on the 3 powers of the soul
  • how to maintain and strengthen these 3 powers with the aid of meditation and energetic mudras
  • an understanding of the 3 most vital pillars that help spiritual progress on a day to day basis.
  • and of course there’ll be relaxation, fun bodywork, meditations and presentations to help you anchor a complete experience.

This masterclass is open to Dru Yoga teachers and BWY teachers. So don’t miss this opportunity to be with international Dru Yoga trainer, Padma McIntyre. We look forward to seeing you all!


For Dru Yoga teachers, this workshop receives 6 CPD points

Padma McIntyre - senior Dru Yoga tutor

Padma has been an enthusiastic practitioner of yoga for more than 30 years and teacher of yoga for more than 21 years. With a background in teaching Physical Education and Creative Dance she later trained in Dru Yoga, Traditional Chinese Medicine, Shiatsu and Ayuvedic massage. This package of skills and understanding of the body and how it works provides an effective tool-kit for optimising health and well-being at every level. 

“I love teaching Dru Yoga as much today as I did when I started in 1992 because I get great joy from witnessing my students as they emerge more fully into their inner strength, personal empowerment and self trust as their yoga practice starts yielding its fruits”.

Padma’s special field of interest is in training Dru Yoga graduates to teach Prenatal Yoga

She currently works as part of a team of tutors with the International School of Dru Yoga to develop and teach undergraduate and post graduate teacher training programmes in Dru Yoga.
