This is a gentle workshop connecting to where you are and where you belong. In this workshop we will focus on releasing blocked energy and balancing our root chakra to enhance our connection with the Earth.
Dru yoga is a combination of flowing movements and yoga moves to create sequences to unblock energy. Essentially we work on the basis of enabling the free flow of energy through the body with the focus being on the spine. As part of every-day modern life we hold tension and emotions in our bodies and if we don’t release this energy from our joints and organs it becomes stuck and this can lead to physical illness.
Working with all the elements is a key part of this gentle yoga practice, and working outside exemplifies this. Being outside enables us to draw on the energy of the earth, connect with nature and with source. During this session we will focus on working with the root chakra. Our root chakra is key to our powerful life force energy that we can learn to cultivate. Opening this energy centre makes you grounded, planting your feet on the ground, connecting with the earth will help this.
If we work with our root chakra and balance this, connecting with the Earth, it is then much easier to align all of the other chakras.
What to bring with you: Please bring something to lie or sit on, and blankets cushions for relaxation.
I have been practising Dru Yoga for two years, after coming across it whilst searching for meditation courses. It reignited my interest in yoga as a whole as it brought together all the elements of holistic health that really excite me. Through a regular Dru practice I overcame stress and depression and have reduced my symptoms of fibromyalgia to almost non existent.
Dru is a magical practice that leaves you with a deep sense of calmness and I knew from the first session I had to share it with others and so I began the teacher training course.
I’m also passionate about changing the image of yoga that has been created by western society, to let people know yoga is suitable for every body that you don’t need to be flexible, your body size and shape doesn’t matter, nor does your age.
I live in Chorley so at the moment all of my classes are in Chorley but I’m hoping to change that very soon.
