Dru Yoga – Sydney Course

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 also operates from a range of venues across North and Western Sydney. We have campuses in Carlingford, Eastwood, Chatswood, Blacktown, Richmond and many more. Enrol online today or call us to have a chat about your options.

Course Outline

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.
