What is Meditation?
Meditation is sitting still and concentrating where you choose too. A sitting position is preferred so both a relaxed and alert state can be achieved. The first step to a wonderful meditation practice is acceptance, the second is deep relaxation and the third is valuing stillness. It is an exploration within and a journey well worth taking.
What are the benefits of Meditation?
Meditation assists the main systems in the body including the blood pressure, the immune system, the nervous system and the tension related issues such as headaches, insomnia, muscle and joint pain. Meditation also creates a greater peace of mind, reducing fear and increasing a sense of happiness, creativity, clarity and intuition. The memory improves, mindfulness increases and harmony can appear in unexpected areas of life. The emotions are more motivating and meditation can inspire enthusiasm, drive, commitment and purpose.
Meditation connects you to the deep inner calm that can be tapped into when under pressure, rushed or when clear thinking is vital.

I am pregnant. Can I join in?
Pregnancy is a sensitive time for your body. All manner of changes are taking place with muscles and hormones. We strongly recommend that you only use the classes specifically designed for pregnancy, and that you seek the advise of a yoga teacher and get specific yoga for your needs and body type.
I have arthritis?
What type of arthritis do you have? It is useful to have a diagnosis. For osteoarthritis most yoga movements will be extremely helpful. Please do not push yourself beyond your natural comfortable limits.
Rheumatoid arthritis – this requires a little more sensitivity, especially with movements involving the neck. Please never perform a shoulder stand or anything that puts pressure through the neck and head.
High blood pressure?
Yoga can help high blood pressure. In general we suggest that you do not hold your arms above the head for any length of time. Also we suggest that you do not hold your breath for any of the poses. Please be cautious with inversions.
Please consult your GP before starting yoga.
Inversions should be avoided, such as the dog, shoulder stand, standing forward bend.
Once again, yes, yoga can help. But like heart conditions, we recommend that you move according to your comfortable capacity. Raised arm poses should not be held for any length of time and inversions also not held. Breathing should maintain an easy flow and not be held.
Generally Dru is excellent for improving back pain. However, if you have a disc injury, arthritis or any serious back condition, we recommend you to take advice of a Dru Yoga instructor before starting. We advise you to get a diagnosis from an Osteopath and ask their advice on what specific movements to avoid.
