Dru yoga is a style of yoga that works with postures, breath work, relaxation and meditation. Its series or sequences are called Energy Block Release. According to "Dru World Wide" this yoga style has thousands of practitioners in 31 countries.
The word Dru in the name refers to the hindu deity dhruva, a prince from the Hindu mythology the god Vishnu honored with the eternal abode on the Pole Star (Dhruva Nakshatra in sanskrit).

Dru Yoga aims in creating healing and unity by combining Asanas, Pranayama (breath) and ancient Eastern tradition of Mudras (hand gestures).

History[edit]

The organisation's activities have been criticised.[6][7]
