Dru Yoga is based upon soft, flowing movements, controlled breathing and visualisation, and is both a graceful and potent form of stress relief. With its foundations set firmly in ancient yogic tradition, Dru Yoga is a style that has been passed down by generations, and now attracts a cult following of people looking for positive health and wellbeing.
Ms Clapham said that “doing Dru Yoga is the perfect solution to anxiety, stress and insomnia. This graceful flowing style is accessible for everyone – I recommend a weekend yoga holiday or meditation retreat to completely relax and revitalise body and mind.”
Stress-busting Dru Yoga holidays and meditation retreats are held all year round in beautiful Snowdonia, which is just over 3 hours away from London by train. A weekend all-inclusive yoga holiday costs from £290.
Dru Yoga is one of the most popular Yoga Schools in Britain, and also offers yoga classes and workshops around the world. For details and bookings visit www.druworldwide.com.
If there is one book Mansukh Patel never wants to be separated from, it is the Gita. Consequently he takes it with him wherever he goes on all his travels around the world. “It is essential to me as my own breath and not a day goes by when I do not use her wisdom to guide me.” Mansukh says.
Each of the eighteen chapters of the Gita are intricately linked one to another. Each one takes us systematically from the lowest point a human being can experience – a state of hopelessness, helplessness and utter dejection, epitomized by Arjuna’s despondency in chapter one, to the very highest clarity and freedom elucidated in chapter eighteen when Arjuna declares that his delusion is completely gone and his mind clear.
This amazing book is part autobiography, and part manual of personal change. It documents the personal search and revelations that came to Mansukh Patel throughout his extraordinary early life. The theme running through the book is the transforming power that light has on many levels. Mansukh Patel talks about the necessity of regular exposure to light for health at every level, from the physical through to the most subtle. He shows us that by the application of some very simple practices you can experience an awakening to your true humanity.
The techniques described in The Secret Power of Light draw on skills that the young Mansukh and his university friends were given by his father. These skills include practical applications of Dru Yoga Techniques, the famous Gayatri Mantra, Dru Meditation techniques, and the story of the World Peace Flame, which was inaugurated in July 1999 and is steadily becoming known world-wide. Mansukh describes how seven flames were lit on five different continents and the heart-warming story of unity showing how the flames were transported by military Air Forces from different countries around the world.
