Develop a deeper understanding of Dru Yoga and take your personal practice to a new level.
Practise with confidence!
Develop a deeper understanding of Dru Yoga and take your personal practice to a new level. Dru Yoga is a graceful, yet potent form of yoga, based on soft flowing movements, controlled directed breathing and visualisation. With its foundations set firmly in ancient yogic tradition, it works on body, mind and spirit – improving strength and flexibility, creating core stability, building a heightened feeling of positivity, and rejuvenation your whole being.
Learn the seven keys that will help you unlock the subtleties of Dru Yoga so that you can gain the maximum benefit from your practice.
The course was life changing. I started it purely for self development and to deepen my knowledge of yoga, but realised it was too precious to keep to myself and decided to teach. I discovered an inner stillness and capacity to deal with problems of life.
