Dru Yoga

<< return to a to z of yoga

Dru Yoga is built around gentle, flowing movements, directed breathing and visualisations. During the practice your joints are kept relaxed and soft, encouraging the flow of subtle energy. The slight bend in the knees and elbows gives poses a look and feel that's similar to Tai Chi.

Good to Know

Dru Yoga works with balancing chakras (energy centres of the body), particularly the heart chakra.

Classes end with meditation.

Who's it for?

Suitable for people of all abilities, fitness levels and age groups, including women in pregnancy.


Dru Yoga was first taught in the West at Bangor University in the late 70s by Mansukh Patel, John Jones, Rita Goswami, Annie Jones and Chris Barrington. The school is growing rapdily in popularity and now has a huge global following worldwide.
