A powerful tool for self-development, inner calm and stress relief.
What is Dru Meditation?
Dru Meditation is about finding a still inner point from which you can look at the world in a different way and discover a new perspective on your life. Using powerful movement, breathing and concentration techniques, you will learn to access a deep inner peace, no matter what challenges you may be facing.
Dru Meditation is based on the wisdom of the yogic tradition. It combines the best of this ancient knowledge while making it relevant for our modern world.
Dru takes you deeply into the science of meditation, showing how to bring your awareness from the physical body, through to the deepest layers of your being.
Benefits of regular meditation practice
A regular practice of meditation will help you find inner resources to deal with the pressures and anxieties of life. You will learn to become the master of your thoughts and emotions, and find deep stability within, helping you navigate an uncertain world with courage and joy.
Meditation relaxes you so you sleep deeper and wake more refreshed
Gain more inner stability and clarity to face whatever comes your way
Calms your nervous system and resets your mind and emotions
Without a doubt Dru Meditation has given me marvellous tools and techniques to help me meditate. And I am sure this has encouraged me to become a stronger, more compassionate person. My immediate response was, "Now I feel whole".
But the benefits have not only been for myself, it has been so rewarding teaching and sharing this knowledge to support others ride the ups and downs of everyday life. And believe me – there seems to be many who need help right now.
Three Stages of Dru Meditation
The perfect balance between alertness and relaxation
It doesn’t matter if you practise in a chair or sitting cross legged on the floor, it’s all about quietening the mind and stilling the body.
We've been teaching mindful awareness since the early 1980s where we taught Vipassana retreats to help people start their journey into meditation. Over many years and through training thousands of teachers in yoga and meditation, we've now refined our style into three main stages.
Mindful awareness & acceptance
Dru Meditation, in common with many other types of meditation, starts with a comfortable sitting with gentle awareness of the body and breath.
This mindful awareness reduces stress, lowers blood pressure, chronic pain and insomnia.
Conscious engagement of this stage of Dru Meditation will help you to become fully adept at mindfulness in your everyday life.
Yogic models for understanding consciousness
The next stage of Dru Meditation takes us from just observing our mind to understanding the vast landscape of our consciousness, described in the yogic tradition through models such as chakras and koshas.
This more refined level of practice helps you understand how the body, energy, emotions and thought are linked.
Master your mind and design your life
In the third stage of Dru Meditation you will learn to transform your consciousness by learning to become the master of your emotions and mind.
You’ll learn advanced breathing techniques, mantras and kriyas which will empower your strengths and help you to deeply know yourself.

Meditation for Inner Balance
Take time to relax and centre your body and mind.
You can use this short, 20-minute meditation to find a place of deep stillness and inner balance.
It is particularly effective if you are busy or stressed, or if you need to create a bit more space around you.
Overcoming fear with Dru Meditation
Meditation gives us the time and space to reflect and observe our thoughts and emotions.
Giving ourselves that quiet time for self-reflection helps us to dissociate a little - especially from emotions like fear and anxiety.
This process of creating distance means that we can learn to become masters of our mind. Dru Meditation helps us overcome our fears by filling our heart and mind with the positive counterparts such as courage and self-empowerment.
