A Dru Yoga tip to keep you happy all day long, is to have a good breakfast. It might sound like something your Mum might say, but having a substantial meal first thing really does make life seem much better. Our favourite here at the Dru Yoga centre is millet or oat porridge with tahini and honey. Put it on to soak the night before and it’ll cook really quickly in the morning. Another option is to work with the power of Laughter. Get the endorphins flowing with our favourite funny movies – here at Dru we’re still debating the best list, but it must include The Man Who Knew Too Little, Groundhog Day, Monty Python and the Holy Grail, and Airplane. And it tones up the abdominal muscles better than sit-ups!
The mudra of insecurity – when you want reassurance.
Interlock all fingers into clasped hands, close the eyes and hold for at least 90 seconds. Focus on sealing the energy of vitality and security and as you hold the mudra and feel that security settling with in you. It’s like a self-hug!
For emotional maturity – used in the beautiful Dru Yoga moon sequence.
With your hands horizontal, place the right palm into the back of the left hand, fingers together and facing forward, thumbs out to the sides. Rotate the thumbs up and back to release the natural flow of energy in the body and stimulate your powers of creativity.
