Evidence based research
First randomised controlled trial into Dru Yoga
In 2008, research into the benefits of Dru Yoga was conducted at the University of Bangor (UK). 48 employees were randomized into a yoga group and a wait-list control group.
The yoga group were given Dru Yoga for six weeks, given three 60 minute classes per week. The wait-list control group received no intervention during the six week study but were offered free classes after the trial. Before and after measurements were obtained with the Profile of Mood States - Bipolar, and the Inventory of Positive Psychological Attitudes.
Dru Yoga participants recorded substantial increases in seven key areas of wellbeing - see chart.
