Anyone can begin, no matter what shape you’re in! Yoga strengthens the body whilst calming the mind, increasing our mental clarity, aiding our concentration, and steadying our emotions, bringing with it the ability to be still!
A Hatha Yoga class consists of physical Yoga postures (asana) conscious and directed breathing (pranayama) and relaxation. Learn to balance your entire system with Yoga poses, which provide a complete body workout.
Learn to breathe using your entire lung capacity for renewed energy and complete relaxation. Learn to quieten your mind to create a space of peace and tranquillity within your own body. This is an essential technique used to lessen the effect of stress – a major killer in today’s society.
Dru Yoga is a very flowing and more gentle style of yoga, that suits every body – young, old, tense, sore or flexible. It is perfect for people suffering stress, anxiety and depression or those who have had injuries or feel a bit tight and stiff as it lets the body release the tension and gradually develop more strength, balance and flexibility while restoring a sense of calm and inner peace. There is great power and strength in gentleness!
As we move through the class there is a focus on clearing the energy field around your body as well as really becoming aware of how you are feeling whilst you are doing the movements and breathing. It is mindfulness in action!
There is a long, calming relaxation at the end to allow your mind and body time to totally relax and integrate all the lovely healing energy you have created during the class.
