Dru Midlands Yoga & Health Summer Event, 2017
Skillful living in changing times
Join us for a day of practical and empowering workshops, presentations and great company.
There is only one truly constant in life - and that is the law of change.
According to the laws of nature, everything must continue to evolve and transform itself and never remain static.
We are no exception. Each one of us has to discover how to flow with the changes that life presents to us in every moment. In a world that is in a time of accelerated change, this has never been so important.
Life is always offering us opportunities to expand towards our highest potential - if we choose to see it that way. When we can ride the waves of change we discover our fulfillment as human beings, our contentment and true happiness.

Yoga, chakras and their connection with our solar system
with Sylvia Barrington
During this workshop we will explore our personal relationship with the sun and neighbouring planets and discover how our understanding of astrology can help direct our yoga practice to become truly tailored to our own needs.
Free the power of your voice
with Petra Opsteeg
Song and music can move us to great heights. As yogis, we tap into this power by freeing our own voice and work with specific sounds and chants to completely empower our daily lives. Using the yoga and ayurveda model, you will experience your unique sound, innate joy and fullness on all levels of your being. Everyone has a voice, so join in - no trained singing voice required.
Introduction to Ayurveda
with Janey Fitzgerald and Keith Squires
Ayurveda is often considered the sister science to yoga and is one of the world's oldest holistic healing systems. In this workshop, Janey Fitzgerald, a GP and Ayurvedic Practitioner and Keith Squires, author and Ayurvedic chef will introduce the foundations of Ayurveda and teach some simple but powerful daily ayurvedic practices to enhance your health and well being.
Keith will present his new book ‘Cooking with Love’.
with Orina & Nigel Murphy
We all affect other people around us which means we are all leaders. The type of leader you are is the impact you have on others. This workshop will explore the 4 energies (physical, emotional, mental and spiritual) and help you develop a practical toolkit to 'be at your best' in all areas of your life. We will cover movement, meditation, mindfulness and psychology in this experiential workshop.
Balance the elements for ultimate health
with Monica Staniforth & Sue Cheese
In this workshop we will deepen our understanding of the 5 elements and laws of nature and discover how to access them through yoga to attain greater health, happiness and success. You will learn the new ‘Balancing the Five Elements’ Dru Yoga sequence incorporating flowing postures, pranayama, visualisation and affirmation.
Effective yoga for back care
with Ruth Boaler
In this workshop we will explore traditional and evidence-based yogic approaches for back care. You will receive an effective programme for overcoming back pain and promoting a healthy spine, based on body-mind techniques, yoga sequences and breath work.
I'd really recommend the Dru Workshops. I feel so revitalised and enthusiastic about life since attending, I definitely want to come to another one soon!
Call back your power and fly!
Dru Yoga has positively changed my life in all areas. I used to have some sort of block, a kind of disconnect with life. Now everything just flows and I can connect with life on a deeper level.
