No matter what is going on internally or externally, we are able to respond and act from a place of greater ease and well-being. This informs, supports and enhances our daily life.

This graceful yet potent form of yoga is rooted in ancient tradition with its asanas (postures), pranayama (breath work), as well as restorative and relaxation techniques. It is practiced by people of all ages, abilities and fitness levels. Unique to Dru are the Energy Block Release sequences based on gentle flowing movements harmonized with directed breathing, visualizations & affirmations.
