Dr Ned Harfiel describes some of the research which demonstrates the power of Dru yoga techniques for improving wellbeing - physically and mentally.
A pilot study at Bangor University indicated that a yoga-based stretching and strengthening programme significantly reduced back pain and stress. Here's just some of the numbers from university research into the effectiveness of Dru Yoga:
|Area of wellbeing||Increase|
|More composed - less anxious||120%|
|More clear-minded - less confused||500%|
|More elated - less depressed||240%|
|More energised - less tired||270%|
|More agreeable - less hostile||100%|
|More confident - less unsure||210%|
|Life purpose and satisfaction||330%|
|Self confidence during stress||650%|
