DRU YOGA

Dru comes from the Sanskrit word dhruva which means ‘coming to a still point’ and ‘unchanging’. Dru Yoga has its roots in hatha yoga and includes classical yoga postures (asanas), breath work (pranayama), hand gestures (mudras) and empowering visualization through dynamic yoga sequences.


Tatami Studio has a friendly, relaxed atmosphere. We encourage you to send us an email to participate in your first free class.


‘energy block releases are exclusive to Dru Yoga’


These sequences are called Energy Block Releases which are exclusive to Dru Yoga. Dru Yoga benefits body, mind and spirit while improving core strength, flexibility and emotional balance. It is deeply relaxing and rejuvenates one’s whole being. Dru Yoga is an energetic, positive and fresh approach to complete health and wellbeing. Currently, Dru Yoga is only offered in Winnipeg, at Tatami Studio.

Dru Yoga fixed my chronic neck and back pain which I have suffered with for many years. My spine is now healthier, supple and strong. Love you Dru Yoga!

What can you expect from a Dru Yoga Class?

  • A short, fun series of stretches and movements to activate the body in preparation for asanas (sequences and postures).

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

  • Asana – each posture and sequence has specific therapeutic benefits for the body and mind.

  • Relaxation – ten to twenty minutes of deep relaxation allows you time to release pent up tensions, giving your body a chance to balance and repair. It's the equivalent of 2–3 hours of sleep!
