Dru Yoga - Sydney Course

We offer training in face to face and/or online learning formats.

  • Please see scheduled class for delivery format.
  • Online classes delivered via livestream video over Zoom.

Many everyday activities rely on using core muscle strength. Having a stronger core could mean better posture, balance and less injuries.

This Dru Yoga course seeks to strengthen and train the muscles in the pelvis, lower back and abdomen. Using simple, graceful, invigorating movements combined with breath, you will feel stronger and more relaxed.

This course is suitable for beginners. Yoga poses and core exercises can be modified for all levels.

Macquarie Community College operates from a range of venues across northern and western Sydney. We have campuses in Blacktown, Carlingford, Chatswood, Mt Druitt, Richmond and Ryde. Enrol today or enquire now!

Course Outline

This course is delivered in a hall with the instructor showing and explaining each yoga pose. Modifications for poses will also be shown as required.

In this course you can learn:

  • Different yoga poses
  • Specific core exercises
  • Warm up activations
  • Energy block releases
  • Body preparations asanas (postures)
  • Breathing techniques
  • Relaxation techniques

We begin with gentle warm-up activations to get the body prepared before the energy block releases spread warmth to the muscles to allow for the movement of energy to flow smoothly through the body.

Breathing techniques are taught but each student is encouraged to breathe to their own capacity and breath rhythm. The body preparation asanas (postures) are sometimes within the activations and energy block release movements.

Throughout the term, you will come to understand the purpose and benefit of stretching and strengthening exercises.

Please note: This is a guide only.

Course Outcome

This core strength yoga session builds on your physical and mental coping mechanisms from the inside out. Tension is released, the body/mind soothed and core strength enhanced through physical awareness of postural alignment and relaxation.
