Module 1

An in-depth exploration of asana modification and the physical level.

As you are aware each posture has an essence, an inner transformative power waiting to be discovered. During this weekend we will explore how to finely attune modifications to the needs of the individual,  in doing this, we will discover keys to help us embrace the essence of every posture. We will then go on to explore the physical level, working through the chakras from base to top. 

Modules 2 - 3

Deepening awareness of kosha and chakra in asana practice

We work through the chakras from base to top at the physical layer and introduce some of the pranic layer.  You’ll learn how to work with specific postures and sequences to strengthen or balance each chakra.  We’ll explore how these postures and sequences affect your physical body and subtle energy, and give you preliminary exercises for expanding your ability to work with your subtle energy.

Modules 4 - 5

Discovering the power of the motivational kosha

Working again through the chakras from base to top, we focus on the pranic and emotive layers, and how we can use the postures and sequences already previously explored at these more subtle levels. You’ll experience how this gives you much greater power for achieving long-term health and wellbeing. You'll also learn how each chakra is the part of our mind that controls crucial aspects of life (abundance/vitality, relating, achieving goals, building harmony, knowing the right thing to do, discerning your role in life, achieving unity).

A full list of the course dates is given on the tab below.

Graduation and assessment

This course will give you detailed guidance for exploring the principles and insights both in your home practice and in your classes. There will be some written reflective practices for you to record your experiences and discover the remarkable progress you are making. You will be asked to dedicate at least one hour per week towards this practice.

On completion of the course and the written reflective practice, you will be awarded a Dru Certificate of Advanced Postgraduate Studies.

I not only enjoyed it, I loved it! Thank you. It really helped me to feel my core stability muscles. I'm looking forward training them ;-)

Thank you, this was lovely. It was great to have your teaching in my home! Great production also - good picture, good sound, easy to fast forward and great that I could see what was happening as I fast forwarded so I knew when to stop. I also like the way Dru Online is bringing us more specific subjects like this one, that before we have only seen in the workbooks. Thank you.
