What is Dru Yoga?
Dru comes from the Sanskrit word "Dhruva" 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, to see and act from a point of clarity and inner calm.

What is unique about Dru Yoga?

In Dru Yoga the joints of the body are kept relaxed and soft during movement. This creates flexibility and a free flow of subtle energy.

Energy Block Release Sequences
We use Energy Block Release sequences which are easy-to-practise, flowing movements that help to release tension physically, mentally, and emotionally.

Healthy, Flexible Spine
In Dru Yoga all movements originate from the spine because a flexible, healthy spine supports your entire yoga practice. The spinal wave and spinal twist are core features of Dru Yoga, enhancing spinal health and vitality.

Core stability is also a major focus.

Balance Your Energy
Dru Yoga works to balance the chakras (energy centres of the body) and access the powerful energy of the heart.

Find Stillness
Within the flow of movement, Dru Yoga creates powerful moments of stillness which we call 'Dru points'.

At Lakshmi Yoga, our classes are tailored for the over fifties, but Dru Yoga teachers are trained to make their classes suitable for all levels of fitness – from 'full sweat' to 'no sweat'!
