Program

It is invigorating, exhilarating, fun and addictive! You’ll experience a revitalizing weekend of Dru Yoga and Dru Dance which include warm-ups, body preps, and an invigorating Dru Dance sequence. Aside from that, you will also have time to relax and enjoy the spectacular scenery.

In this retreat, you will learn a dynamic Dru Dance sequence put to music, which you can use anytime to energize and empower yourself. There are many ways to move just as there are many ways to use language. Dru Yoga Dance is a visual language often called “poetry in motion”. Drawing from moves from the Dru Yoga tradition as well as Indian and Western cultural influences, Dru Yoga Dance offers a rich and varied opportunity to express yourself through body language.

Dru Yoga is a graceful and potent form of yoga, based on flowing movements, directed breathing and visualization. With its foundations set firmly in ancient yogic tradition, Dru works on body, mind, and spirit therefore improving strength and flexibility, creating core stability, building a heightened feeling of positivity, and deeply relaxing and rejuvenating your whole being.

Designed to be practiced by people of all abilities, all fitness levels and all age groups, Dru is a style of yoga that can be quickly dipped into or learnt in more depth over a lifetime.

Dru Yoga has its roots in hatha yoga and includes classical yoga postures (asanas), pranayama (breath work), mudras (gestures), positive affirmations, empowering visualizations, and powerful, flowing, dynamic sequences. Dru Yoga is known to keep your joints relaxed and soft during movement just like in Tai Chi. This creates flexibility and a free flow of subtle energy.

Aside from that, it is also known for Energy Block Release sequences (EBRs) which an easy-to-practice, flowing movements that help to release tension physically, mentally and emotionally. In Dru Yoga, all movements originate from the spine because a flexible, healthy spine will support your entire yoga practice. The spinal wave and spinal twist are core features of Dru, enhancing spinal health and vitality.

A deep understanding of core stability is a major focus. Dru Yoga works to balance the chakras which is the energy that centers of the body and access the powerful energy of the heart. Within the flow of movement, Dru Yoga creates powerful moments of stillness which is known as “Dru points.” Classes are tailored to an individual level and usually contain Energy Block Release sequences, graceful yoga sequences, pranayama, relaxation, and Dru meditation.
