Dru Yoga

Course Overview

Become healthier and stronger with Dru Yoga! Many everyday activities rely on using core muscle strength. Having a stronger core could mean better posture, balance and less injuries.

Dru yoga 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.

The gentle yet invigorating exercises aim to not only fortify your physical well-being but also promote a sense of inner calm and balance. Modifications are available to accommodate all levels, ensuring a welcoming and accessible environment for participants.

Macquarie Community College operates from a range of venues across Northern and Western Sydney. We have campuses in Blacktown, Carlingford, Chatswood, Epping, Mt Druitt, Richmond, and Ryde. Enrol now!

What you will learn

Course outline

During the course the instructor will show and explain each yoga pose including demonstrating modifications for poses 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.
