As I tread my own path my teaching style has become a synthesis of classical Hatha (Sivananda-based) and Dru Yoga with a few other styles blended in. I’m eternally grateful and inspired by the many different teachers whose classes I’ve attended within the Sivananda and Dru lineage and in the many other forms and styles of Yoga that I’ve experienced.
In a Karmiyoga class you can expect a continual flow, from start to finish, with mindful awareness of breathing linking each movement, gently working but also challenging ourselves with more advanced variations, but always, always, respecting and honoring who we are, and what our body is capable of doing at any given time. Inner balance and serenity is achieved via Asana, movement, consciousness, meditation, mantras, affirmations – and it’s a good workout too, in a seemingly effortless way!
Not surprisingly, Dru is often described as the “feeling” yoga, and I love the flowing movements which allow me to ‘internalise’ the experience of asana and movement by working with the koshas (the five layers of the human body); noticing sensations, feelings & thoughts, arriving at what’s known as the ‘Daivam’ factor, a feeling of sheer bliss, blessings and balance.
