The Five Pillars of Dru
We're totally passionate about creating educational programmes and collaborative networks where people can enjoy better health at all levels; physical, emotional, mental, social and spiritual.
1. DEPTH & EXPERTISE
With remarkable insight into the depths of ancient techniques and modern science, Dru offers you tools that enable you to improve your health, your emotional make-up, your mind and even your character! Welcome to the best version of yourself.
Dru programmes are renowned for their remarkable depth of knowledge, both ancient and modern. Our Dru Yoga and Dru meditation training courses can help you discover the profound essences of the classical yoga and meditation techniques.
Dru brings you a blend of ancient wisdom illuminated by leading-edge, modern thinking.
We dive deeply into the subtle energetics of these ancient techniques.
Learn how to harness their benefits in far-reaching ways—right through the unconscious mind, and in the end arrive at a tool box for your body-mind-spirit that lets you make remarkable progress in your self-development journey
Dru Yoga’s postures and sequences are rooted in ancient practice, yet crafted with the most up-to-date practices from physiotherapy, osteopathy, neuroscience.
2. ADAPTABILITY & ACCESSIBILITY
Dru is inherently safe, because it focuses less on end-range movements and difficult positions and more on awareness, core strength, alignment and the essential origins of movement.
If you want a workout and an experience of physical power, we’ll help you find muscles deep in your core you never knew existed! And show you how to bring them back into the kind of alignment that helps you walk tall and turn heads.
And if you want to rescue a tired body from ill health, we’ll help you discover how to use your awareness, visualisation and micro-movements to become magnificently body-aware, upright and vibrant again.
Many practitioners describe how Dru’s power comes as much from its smart visualisations as from its physical movements.
Dru moves effortlessly through the five layers of being (the five koshas) to create a symphony of awareness and transformation. These are so powerful that you can gain as much as 80% of the benefits of Dru Yoga without moving anything at all!
Empowerment. It’s a living, breathing, golden feeling of being in the centre of the slip stream of your life.
People matter. A lot. And we are at our best when we feel we are the captains of our own destiny, able to achieve our goals.
Western society doesn’t really help you be the person you want to be; it just presents you with a dizzying array of images designed to tantalise you towards... well, something that’s probably not the real you.
Dru techniques help you discover and achieve the goals that really matter to you.
We offer ways to help you navigate the big challenges of today: overwhelm, dizzying stress levels, burnout, coping with more information and stimulation than any society of people in history.
Whether you are simply looking for a technique to help you cope, or you want to discover and explore your own strength and capability and make it the central pillar of your life, Dru’s empowerment approaches will take you to the sky!
4. PEOPLE | FRIENDSHIP | COMMUNITY
Throughout our work the emphasise is on creating a supportive, empathic environment. Dru classes stand out for their supportive community, fun and togetherness.
Our teachers are trained to build a climate of care and empathy between everyone in the room. Technically - from a yogic point of view - they have been trained to become masters of ‘vyaan vayu’, the consciousness of connectedness. It’s an exacting science, yet one of the most fulfilling and vibrant explorations you will ever embark upon.
Human resources professionals, therapists, management trainers, lawyers and others needing to understand how to build great feelings within a group do the Dru teacher training courses to extend their skills because our aspirations, our energetic makeup, our emotions, thoughts and dreams are independent of culture and language.
As a result, Dru has been able to help refugees in war zones overcome emotional trauma, bring peace to conflicting groups and be taught in more than 40 of the world’s largest cultures.
Often referred to as ‘the yoga of the heart’, Dru delivers an extraordinary feeling of ‘coming home’.
Be part of an inspiring global community and create your own empowering network.
Dru offers an inspiring global network of like-minded people, supporting you to build positive relationships in every sphere of life.
5. GIVING. TO THE WORLD.
Dru practitioners and teachers really care about the world. They really care about the people they meet through their days. And they’re likely to have their fingers in all sorts of activities that make a difference in their community.
Why would they do this?
We think it’s because they’ve discovered that when you give to life, you feel better! Life seems to provide more opportunities and you feel more in the flow of who you really are. The traffic lights go green!
And in fact, if you asked them, Dru practitioners would tell you there’s not really a reason for being so giving. It’s just natural. Life is better like that.
Well, this is our experience. Maybe it’s yours too? If so, maybe we can create something magical together on this earth.
