DRU MEDITATION

Dru Meditation classes delve deeply into the science of meditation to find inner peace amidst life’s challenges. It is a deep form of relaxation that helps practitioners find an inner stillness from which to experience the world. 


Mindfulness in heart and mind–come back to yourself! Tatami Studio has a relaxed atmosphere and our Dru Meditation class teaches students to effortlessly enter into meditation offering relaxation and an inspiring ‘recharge’. We encourage you to send us an email to participate in a complimentary trial class.


‘increase daily mindfulness, energy and peace’


Dru Meditation focuses on the five layers (koshas) of the body; the physical body (the outer layer), the energy body, the emotional body, the intellectual body and blissful body (the deepest layer of our being). 

The techniques taught in this class will give the student skills to help increase daily mindfulness, energy and peace. The pace of the class is such that persons of any fitness level can participate including seniors and those with varying abilities. Students will learn deep relaxation techniques and experience inner peace which can then be applied to daily life.
Instructor: Ama Mann.

Ama Mann leads meditation
I started Dru meditation with Ama when they opened in the fall 2016. Ama is passionate about his teaching meditation. I come from St. Norbert, Winnipeg. It is about a 20 minutes drive. It is a pleasure for me to come to the meditation every Sunday. The ambiance in the studio is warm and peaceful. I enjoy the meditation. Thank you Ama for your kindness and teachings.

  • Gentle movement to prepare the body for stillness.

  • Energy Block Release (EBR) and chakra (centre of spiritual power) clearing. EBR's are easy and pleasant to do and when performed correctly they can dissolve emotional, mental and physical energy blocks.

  • Deep guided relaxation gives you time to relax and release pent up tensions, giving your body a chance to balance and repair. It's the equivalent of 2–3 hours of sleep!

  • Twenty-minute meditation

  • A time for teacher and students dialogue, known in Sanskrit as satsang (sitting in truth).

  • Similar to many other types of meditation, Dru Meditation begins with a gentle awareness of body and breath.

  • Dru Meditation takes us from observing our mind to understanding the vast landscape of our consciousness – experienced in the yogic traditions through the chakras and koshas.

  • The higher stage of meditation is when a practitioner learns to ‘transform consciousness’.

  • Dru Meditation teaches the advanced breathing techniques of mantras and kriyas (a series of postures, breathing and sounds) which will empower you to deepen your knowledge of yourself.

I have been taking Dru meditation at Tatami Studio since it opened. The studio has a calming and peaceful energy that is conducive to letting go and being present. It’s a very unique type of meditation class that teaches you to be present and aware in multiple ways. Since I started taking Ama’s classes I have noticed more self awareness and a feeling of being grounded amidst the day to day business of life.

The Health Coordinator at The Parkway Retirement Community in Winnipeg contacted Tatami Studio to host Yoga and Meditation classes for their senior residents.

Tatami instructor Ama Mann attends The Parkway Retirement Community twice a month to lead a gentle movement and guided meditation class for the senior residents. The residents have benefited saying that it has helped them mange their pain and sleep habits which in turn gives them more energy throughout the day. Doctors and health care practitioners understand that yoga & meditation are the best tool for mental, physical, and emotional health. 

These sessions are so nice...how often in life do you get the chance to totally relax and learn to think about ‘nothing’.

Becoming skilled in a meditation practice will help you control or redirect the racing or ‘runaway’ thoughts that often lead to insomnia. Additionally, meditation relaxes the body, releasing tension and placing then mind in a peaceful state in which you are more likely to fall asleep.

Our residents love Ama and his meditation sessions! He has such a soothing voice and is excellent with the residents and their needs. Residents have claimed that his sessions have helped them sleep better, become more mobile and relaxed.
