Emotional Spring Clean! - 14-4-06

Dear friends,

Easter greetings from all of us at the Life Foundation. We hope that this time of renewal and inspiration will bring joy and hope to you and your family. It’s a beautiful time of year here at Snowdon Lodge, with the daffodils nodding in the breeze and the lambs appearing in the fields. I love taking a few days in the spring to stop and reflect on how my life is going and what I need to work on. It’s like an internal spring clean! Out go the old emotional patterns, the unsuccessful ways of living my life. And that all makes way for fresh ideas, inspiration and goals for the rest of the year!

If you need help to balance those negative emotions which tend to take us all over from time to time, I have found that Energy Block Release (EBR) sequences, which are unique to Dru Yoga, quickly transform emotional energy in the body. Gentle flowing movements are used to unlock emotional trauma without us having to relive the past. One of the key principals in Dru Yoga is that the body and the emotions are linked. Leading molecular biologists, among them Dr Candice Pert, now agree that chemicals in the body - messenger molecules called peptides – correspond with emotional states. This scientific theory explains how Dru enables people to directly affect their emotions by working on their bodies.

My colleague and International Dru Yoga teacher Annie Jones says that Dru Yoga gives people tools so they can take charge of their emotional states.“Dru yoga helps people to recognize the tell-tale physical indicators of emotions. Then, they learn how to choose an appropriate movement or breathing sequence to convert the energy of that painful emotion into a more positive state of being”, she said. For example frustration and anger can be transformed into creativity with the rotated triangle posture. Grief can be transformed into acceptance with the camel posture or the Dru Salute to the Four Directions sequence.

A recent survey of over 400 Dru Yoga practitioners in the UK and abroad found many individuals are having great success in stabilising their emotional lives.
Over 90% of participants noticed that they had a greater ability to handle their emotions and to transform their negative thinking. About 84% experienced a positive shift in their mood after practicing Dru Yoga and 73% were better able to deal with conflict.

Remedial masseuse Lloyd Curtis says “I used to stew on little things that annoyed me and gradually they built up inside but now I am a much calmer and peaceful person and little things don’t worry me anymore.”

You can gain a wide variety of programmes for healing emotional programmes from the new Dru Yoga Book, ‘Stillness in Motion’ by Chris Barrington, Anita Goswami and Annie Jones.
