Many of us are familiar with the Sun Sequence, Surya Namaskara, but have you ever deeply explored Dru’s Chandra Namaskara, the Moon Sequence?

The moon is a powerful archetype as well as a hugely influential force in our lives. Like gravity, the moon’s influence can be seen and felt everywhere, but it’s become so “normal” we forget just how powerful it is!

In this Masterclass, we will be exploring a variation of the wonderful Chandra Namaskara as well as understanding a little more about how the moon can affect us both positively and negatively and how we might, with yogic techniques, work with the moon energies to help us find emotional stability, hormonal balance and a calm, serene mind.

See you there!

Rita Goswami, one of Dru's founders, is a master of Vedanta and the ancient science behind why we do what we do in yoga. And tonight she is exploring why light is important.

Join Rita as she explores the power inherent in the light of a flame, the ajna chakra and your pineal. 

The sun is crucial to your health and Rita will explain a key mantra practice to activate the light within your cells.

Mastering the Yoga of Light

 
Learn how to harness the powers of light using yoga's ancient tradition of Surya - the consciousness of light. 

1 Yoga
Professional CPD point

Every human being has access to an innate power of light that brings us clarity and purpose - as well as activating our subtle energy to fill our body with health, immunity and vitality. 

At the entrance of 2021 nearly every one of us are encountering challenges that test us to our limits; when activated properly, your inner light gives you two great keys for life: strong life force, and a sense you are supported in life. With these, the greatest challenges become surmountable, perhaps even gifts for uncovering strengths you never knew you had.

Anouschka Dack and Andrew Wells will show you how to harness the powers of light using yoga's ancient tradition of Surya - the consciousness of light and life force most cultures associate with the Sun. Anouschka will show you the inner secrets of the Sun Salutation, and how to use it to kindle a vitalising dance of light through your life. Andrew will then go on to teach you some of the essential concepts of the consciousness of light, and how yoga can be a laser-like lens for designing your emotions and mind into any shape you want. 

Yoga is everything from a supercharged vitality machine to a creative body prayer that can be used to change the lives of everyone around you. It can even be used as an instrument of support and love to nourish the onward journey of people who've transcended life and are on their journey into the infinite. 

We hope you'll be with us for an unforgettable evening with the spirituality of yoga!

The Art & Science of Relaxation

If you have a goal you want to achieve, or some dis-ease you want to transform, then Dru Relaxation techniques can take you a long way to achieving your goal!

1 Yoga
Professional CPD point

Why is Dru Relaxation so much more than just a bliss out?

Any Dru Yoga or Meditation teacher will tell you that relaxation is a crucial tool for helping their students transform. If you're sad - there are relaxations for that. If you're ungrounded - there are relaxations for that. If you're stressed - well all relaxations are for that! If you're happy - there are relaxations to make the most of that. If you're empowered and on the wave of your mission in life - there are relaxations for that too! And for everything else in between.

In fact, Dru Relaxation is one of the key methods Dru practitioners use to design their lives. If you have a goal you want to achieve, or some dis-ease you want to transform, then relaxation techniques can take you a long way to achieving your goal! 

Tonight we'll explore how to choose the right type of relaxation, what your possibilities are, and how to choose the one that will help you most. 

Oh... and yes, we'll do lots of relaxation. Lots and lots... 

Important health note:
Please note that these techniques are powerful and are not recommended for people with medically significant mental health conditions (eg PTSD etc) unless you work one-on-one with a yoga therapist.

Understand Your Core


Explore body intelligence and functional core engagement. Discover new movement approaches to a strong and resilient back for yourself and your friends/colleagues/students. 

1 Yoga
Professional CPD point

A 60 minute programme is a must-have for any yoga student or graduate as there have been so many recent developments in the fitness industry, and the medical field, that confirm that the back is a strong and intelligent structure... a miracle in fact!

Your back does not need protection so much as it needs movement and active use. It is becoming more and more apparent that cautionary bracing and over-emphasis on core strength can worsen or even cause back pain. This is a great introduction into the wealth of knowledge and experience you'll gain on the Back Care and Wellbeing Course.

In this Masterclass we explore body intelligence and functional core engagement. Discovering new movement approaches to a strong and resilient back for yourself and your friends/colleagues/students is only a small part of the depth you'll experience tonight. You'll discover how to 'relate' to your back, and how to encourage its natural intelligence.

Your body knows the way.

How Dru Yoga Transforms your Consciousness >

Dru Yoga is renowned for enabling you to transform painful emotions into positive and create the state of mind you'd like. 

How does it do this? And how can you become a master at it? 

1 Yoga
Professional CPD point

Andrew Wells is one of Dru's pioneers of taking Dru into war zones to heal emotional trauma, and adapting its form to suit the world's major cultures. Teaching in more than 30 countries, he's an expert in helping anyone discover how to use yoga's powerful techniques to reshape their consciousness.

Whether you want to understand how to heal old hurts or achieve great goals, your success will depend on how you manage your mind, your emotions, and the relationship between your body and your character. 

Dru Yoga's success rests upon its ability to help you achieve all this with simple, mindful movements, focus and well-crafted visualisations. As any Dru practitioner knows, our aim is to help you feel great along the transformational journey, without the need to encounter painful catharsis. It's therefore inherently safe and easy to apply. 

We'll explore the nature of Dru Points, the cornerstones of transformation within Dru practice. You'll discover how to use these within postures and sequences as the lenses that bring Dru's transformational power into vivid relief. 

Within every yoga posture or sequence, there are stages in which time pauses, in which your awareness gathers into a focus that can change your world. You might experience a sudden moment of stillness. You might suddenly feel moved by an unexpected emotion. You might experience an epiphany in these places that changes your life forever, like, "Oh yes, I finally get it. It is OK to love myself."

We call these Dru points. Some are subtle, affecting just one part of your mind at only one level. Others have the potential to be enormous, gathering your whole awareness into a stillness of such power it leaves you feeling connected and fully "yourself" for days afterwards.

Dru points are a core reason why yoga is able to redesign your mind and your emotions. They give you a tool box of ways to create the internal states you'd like to have within.

We're looking forward to helping you on your yoga journey of transformation!

Easy Meditations for Overcoming FUD

 
​​​​​​​Fear/anxiety, Uncertainty and Doubt (FUD) are the challenges of our time - and in this masterclass we'll share the easy ways Dru Meditation can help ease these out of your life.

1 Meditation
Professional CPD point

Fear/anxiety, Uncertainty and Doubt (FUD) are the challenges of our time - and tonight we'll share the easy ways Dru Meditation can help ease these out of your life. 

Learning the easy ways to meditate

Dru Meditation's approach to meditation gives you an easy pathway to comfortable, fulfilling meditation, even if your mind feels impossibly busy. 

Success in meditation is all about understanding how it works, and why it works. Andrew Wells and Monica Staniforth will show you ways to prepare yourself for a comfortable meditation experience, and how to ensure that it feels energising, stablising, and deliciously pleasant. 

We'll then use this state to help you transform the emotional-mental energies within the mind that cause the dreaded FUD. :-)!

By transforming the actual energetic causes of these states, we begin to discover that we are so, so, so much more than our mind or its emotions. In fact, we have the opportunity, always, to find a part of ourselves that is strong and clear amidst any of the ups and downs of life.

Lessons from neuroscience

We'll explore two important lessons from neuroscience. 

  • Firstly, we want to help you derail the anxiety cycle, the positive feedback loop within your brain-body connection that triggers an increase in your stress.
  • Secondly, you’ll discover a bit more about the emerging field of interoception, the body’s pathways from your organs to your brain. These turn out to be setting much of the emotional scene within your psyche, and you’ll learn meditation to become an active designer of the messages within your emotional system.

This masterclass will set you up with a practice you can use to transform these energies, bit by bit, in effortless stages that are fulfilling, do-able, and accessible for everyone.
