Masterclass - Patanjali and Meditation
There are many styles of meditation available today - all bringing a wide variety of health benefits. Dru Meditation is based upon the yogic model – but how much do you know about the rich traditions in which Dru Meditation is based? The teachings of the Bhagavad Gita and Patanjali are keystones in the yogic approach – helping us to overcome the challenges of an unstable mind, and realise the oneness of the unified lower and higher self.
Patanjali wrote his Yoga Sutras in 200 BCE but they have never been more relevant to our modern world. They provide a step by step model of tools to overcome fear, doubt and despondency. In fact – in our changing and unstable times, it’s so important to find stability and guidance from these voices of the ancient sages.
In this masterclass you will learn:
- Facts about the yogic tradition which are essential for every student of yoga or meditation
- Grounding techniques to add to your meditation practice to overcome feelings of overwhelm and anxiety
- A foundation of yoga philosophy which will help you to decipher the challenges of modern day living
- A profound meditation to bring peace and calm to your mind

I am just working on the spine assignment. Apart from really enjoying all the research and information, I had to smile, because whilst writing about the spine and common back problems I have discomfort in my back (chronic) and sitting in one position, not as relaxed as I would like, is aggravating it. I have been taking frequent breaks, doing the Dru stretches, tri spinal release, marjariasana, bringing my knees up and rocking my spine which I love, standing forward bend and squats and when I finish studying each day I do a long relaxation. I have been drinking lots of water as well. I love the fact I have the tools from the Dru to help myself and have the chance to put it all into practice. It's all made such a difference to my back, neck and rest of my body. From a happy yoga student!
If you’re thinking of doing the teacher training course, just go for it! It’s brilliant for yourself and a great way to help others
