Feel Great Look Radiant - class 1

 -   & 
Dru Team
Duration: 
48 mins

In this dynamic class with Coby and Krishna, explore the full benefits of a strong Dru Yoga class.

Feel Great Look Radiant - activation Activation (7 mins)
This activation is a perfect foundation for this class.  Loosen and warm up your muscles, breathe deep as you bring more oxygen into the system and enjoy powerful movements to prepare your body for the postures and sequence later in the class.
 
Feel Great Look Radiant - EBR1

EBR 1 (9 mins)
Energy Block Release 1 (EBR1) is the perfect way to loosen up and stretch the whole body from top to toe! Gently encourage your muscles to lengthen with each repetition. Practicing this sequence regularly can help you feel flexible, strong and ready for your posture to work.

 
Feel Great Look Radiant - body preps

Body Preps (14 mins)
The 5 body preps of this class will gently stretch out your pectoral, triceps and rhomboid muscles before gently lengthening the iliopsoas and adductor muscles.  Good muscle length will assist you moving into the postures easily and enable you to enjoy the class more fully.

 
Feel Great Look Radiant - sitting twist

Sitting Twist (4 mins)
The Sitting Twist (or Ardha Matsyendrasana) is an excellent posture to help detox the colon and mobilise the spine.  It also stimulates the liver and kidneys, activates the digestive fire and increases the appetite - definitely one to do before you eat!

 
Feel Great Look Radiant - inner fire sequence

Inner Fire Sequence (5 mins)
This simple but powerful Dru Yoga sequence joins together the Bhima Posture (strong side bend), the Rotated Triangle and the Warrior Posture. Combined, these three postures create a powerful stimulation to the digestive system, strengthens the legs and back muscles as well as creating a feeling of inner strength and passion for life. This sequence is excellent whenever you need a boost physically or emotionally. Quite literally it helps you to feel great and look radiant!

 
Feel Great Look Radiant - warrior 3

Warrior 3 (4 mins)
A strong posture to complete this class. Strengthen your thighs and core and tone your gluteals and back muscles. A balance posture, this warrior 3 helps to focus your mind giving you a strong sense of purpose and determination.

 
Feel Great Look Radiant - relaxation

Relaxation (6 mins)
This short relaxation will help you to chill out after such an active class. Do feel free to relax for longer, or even better, why not do a meditation to calm and focus your mind.

Hiya Mat, Thanks for your reflections on this class. As you can see we've many styles of class on the studio as we've found some people love shorter, clearer instructions that allows you to explore your own poses, and others love the language and depth that guides you through the process. I know there's many classes you'll love on the studio with a different style of voice. Some times I even turn off the sound completely and watch the class with my own music rather than follow the guided instructions - maybe that could work for you too?

This class would be great if not for a couple of things: The instructors voice is bland and boring with no feeling The demonstrators are not mirroring as Annie does and it gets confusing when listening and watching
