Dru Yoga

Dru Yoga has its roots in hatha yoga and is derived from the Sanskrit word dhruva (ध्रुव), which refers to the stillness that can be experienced in Dru Yoga and Dru Meditation. In this stillness we are able to sit back from anything that may be happening around us, and see and act from a point of clarity and inner calm.

A lot of people liken Dru Yoga to Tai Chi or Qi Gong.

Dru was started in 1978 by Mansukh Patel, Chris Barrington, Rita Goswami, Annie Jones and John Jones at Bangor University, Wales, UK and is inspired by the teachings of Francis of Assisi and Mahatma Gandhi.

What to expect:

Dru Yoga typically starts from a standing position and includes classical yoga postures (asanas), pranayama (breath work), mudras (gestures), positive affirmations, empowering visualisations and powerful, flowing, dynamic sequences, known as Energy Block Release sequences (EBR) which are aimed at transforming and releasing negative emotions into positve ones.
