Everyday yoga 4 a great life
For many of us it’s been a challenging year. We’ve seen political turmoil, economic uncertainty and environmental instability and it's easy to feel depressed about the state of the world.
Yet what really happened? And where are we headed? As yogis we try to look at every situation with an open mind. And the facts are rather surprising – when we examine the actual data, many aspects of the world, from violence to poverty, health to energy production, are actually improving.
Yoga brings us many powerful realisations, but one of my favourites is that change is the only changeless law. One way to accept the outward changes at this time of year is to make our body more flexible. In Dru Yoga, we use side bends to increase our mental flexibility and openness to change. Why not try these moves from Energy Block Release 1?

Dru Yoga tip 59 - Grief
Grief can be experienced for many reasons; the loss (loss of a loved one, of physical wellbeing, of material comfort, of an expected future, of innocence or loss of a close relationship). Grief deposits in layers through our awareness and can surface months, sometimes years after the loss occurred. It is not a sign that you are regressing, going mad or what you have been doing for your mental health hasn't worked, it is just that the next layer is ready to be released and you have worked your way a little further down through the layers.
