Dru yoga combines traditional yoga postures (asanas), hand gestures (mudras), breath awareness, and positive affirmations in flowing sequences. In many yoga traditions the sun sequence forms a central part of the lesson, but in Dru yoga there are so many series. For example, you can choose from a dozen Energy Block Release (EBRs) sequences which help release blockages in the spine. Every EBR engages the energy centers (chakras), and touches on themes like reaching a goal, being in harmony with the earth, and offering gratitude.
In Dru yoga traditional yoga postures become more graceful. For example, the tree. In Dru, you not only stand on one leg, with the other knee bent and open to the side, but you move your arms in a flowing way synchronized with the breath. Another beautiful Dru movement is the Anahata (heart) breath, which first opens your heart to bring in compassion and peace, and then lets you share these qualities with the world.
In Dru yoga, you are encouraged to stay within your boundaries, adapt movements to suit your ability, keep your joints unlocked and use your abdominal muscles for good posture.
It is a form of yoga which anyone can do.
Yoga, in Sanskrit, means to join or bring things in union. Practicing Dru yoga is not just a physical activity, but a way to breathe, grow, and live in harmony.
