Relaxation 10 mins

15 mins

Enjoy this short, 10 minute relaxation with its focus on increasing both physical and mental energy, vitality and dynamism.  This relaxation is suitable as part of your yoga practice or when you have 10 minutes to spare throughout the day.


Anouschka will lead you through this relaxation:

  • Lying on the floor, making yourself comfortable and adjusting your body as needed to help you settle
  • Focusing on the breath to ‘let go’ and settle
  • Tensing and relaxing the body to settle deeper and become ‘still’
  • Drawing on the affirmation: ‘I am filled with energy, passion and dynamism’
  • Completing your relaxation with the affirmation: ‘I will be filled with energy, vitality for the rest of the day’

This was so lovely, just what I needed after a sweaty vinyasa practice. I now love combining dru with other modalities! The Dru relaxations are just the best.

Hi friends, thanks so much for your comments about this relaxation :-) It's wonderful to see just how many people use this class regularly! Please please, take time to nurture and replenish yourself. It may feel selfish - but it's not - it simply means you can give of your self better and with more love and compassion. Enjoy!

Particularly helpful to have an energising affirmation to use. Found I was able to do this relaxation in the middle of the day for an extra boost. Thank you.

Hey - so pleased you're enjoying this class so much. Just a little often... It's consistency that will take you to your goal. Pop this video into your favourites - and even if you can't do a full practice today, try to do just 10 minutes of relaxation.

Thank you -really lovely to have a relaxation just randomly in my day - usually for me as a teacher I attachment them to the end of a sequence or session or to the end of my day to help my body and mind gently slow down at the end of the day but enjoyed this as a stand alone. Always love your voice Anouschka- very soothing

Hey Kerrie! We didn't have so much time for relaxing on the course so yes - use this one regularly to settle and nurture yourself! Good luck with your next phase with all those amazing kids and teens you're inspiring! Anouschka x

Thank you Anoushka. Lovely relaxation, just what I needed today before stepping into a very full day. And thank you for your work with Dru Online I love it. Love that those us on the other side of the world can benefit from your gifts, and those of other senior teachers.
