Meditation isn't emptying the mind as some may believe – it's observing the 'quiet moment' that exists within the mind between our thoughts, (thoughts have a tendency to jump from one subject to another) it's acknowledging those thoughts but not allowing them to dominate our mind
Meditation is widely known to bring a sense of CALMNESS if you're feeling stressed, to bring PEACE if you're feeling anxious or worried and if you're feeling tired then meditation can also give you ENERGY. Part of meditation may involve pranayama – a powerful transformational tool for health and vitality
The process of learning to meditate is a journey... and the journey has to be enjoyable, when it's enjoyable you'll want to do it again and again. Whether you're a complete beginner or a seasoned meditator there is always something new to discover. No two meditative experiences are ever the same – each one opens us to new insights and developments within ourselves
A Dru Meditation class consists of... a sequence of movements that warm up the physical body followed by prana kriyas (a series of moments that are known to work on the 5 layers of being known as koshas and lastly a deep relaxation... only then is the body and mind prepared for meditation

Dru comes from the Sanskrit word dhruva, which refers to the stillness that can be experienced in Dru Yoga and Dru Meditation. In this stillness we are able to sit back from anything that may be happening around us, and see and act from a point of clarity and inner calm.
