Happy New Year everyone! I’m looking forward to running more classes and exciting workshops this year.
Welcome to Hygge Dru Yoga!
Hygge is a Danish word and means a quality of cosiness and comfortable conviviality that engenders a feeling of contentment or well-being! That’s what I was aiming for with my yoga room. It’s so cosy in the evenings and there are even waves on the ceiling to accompany the sound of waves during relaxation! Why not come an treat yourself to a nurturing class and have a bit of time for you!
Meditation is so good for the body and mind! Heres a wonderful meditation for sleeping well from the lovely Jane Saraswati Clapham from the Dru team in Snowdonia! Enjoy 🙂
Here’s a wonderful meditation from one of the founder’s of Dru, John Jones. I hope you enjoy it.

I thought I would take a moment to share with you the World Peace Flame at the Dru Centre in Snowdonia. Today World Peace Flames burn in thousands of homes, schools, workplaces, hospitals, and places of worship around the world. The number of World Peace Flames continues to grow as international decision makers are presented with flames, and flames are installed in monuments in major cities worldwide.
Some of its humanitarian projects have included:
- Medical Camps in Gujerat, India
- Education programmes for children in schools in The Netherlands, UK and Australia
- Support for children and schools in villages in Gujarat, India
- Peace projects in Nepal
- Detraumatisation programmes in Caucasus, Northern Ireland, Sudan, South Africa, and Australia
- Planting our Future, environmental project
- World Peace Flame Forums with leaders of society in The Netherlands, USA
Mudras are a beautiful way to influence energy flow within the body to create a feeling of wellbeing. Meaning seal, gesture, or mark – Mudras are typically hand gestures but can also involve the body. Hand mudras are an effective way of focusing the mind and very useful during meditation. These simple, yet powerful, gestures can instil qualities such as patience, strength, compassion, and creativity while also helping us to ground, dispose of emotional and physical baggage, improve relationships and gain balance in our lives. Not bad for such subtle movements! Hand mudras are especially lovely to use during meditation. I have recently been posting a “Mudra for the Day” on my Facebook page – have a look there for more information. http://www.facebook.com/raisinyoga
Remember to gaze into your beautiful palms each morning and see the wonder that is you. See yourself as you truly are – amazing inside and out.
