You can choose to do this training to become a teacher or for your own personal development.

About one third of our students do the course for their own personal growth, knowing that Dru’s deep insights into the body-mind system will make a huge contribution to their lives. Generally, these students find the ‘teacher-training’ aspects of the course very beneficial.

No matter what you will begin to experience new, higher levels of energy resulting from establishing your own daily yoga practice.  You will also find that you are more relaxed and can cope better with the stresses of everyday life.

Above all this is the start of a wonderful period of in-depth learning, building personal and professional skills, establishing new friendships and an exciting journey of self-discovery!

Want to deepen your practice?

If you have no intention of teaching, you'll find the Dru Yoga course richly rewarding. You'll be in good company, because many Dru Yoga trainees do the course simply to gain yoga's many benefits just for themselves.


You'll enjoy the teaching skills

And in our experience you'll enjoy the teaching skills sections, which are deliberately taught with you in mind: they are fun, build friendships, and help you deepen your practice.

Moreover, these sessions help you learn the energetics of communication, which will boost your relationships with family, friends, colleagues and in your profession.

I enjoyed everything about this workshop. Nice to be on the receiving end. Padma's introduction to the koshas. The very interesting technique for the diaphragm and diaphragmatic breathing. The pear tree partner work and flowing individual sequence.

Friendships that last

The nature of Dru Yoga teaching creates a warm, supportive group environment. It's very likely that you'll form some of the greatest friendships of your life from amongst the warm and friendly bunch of like-minded, supportive people you'll meet on the course.


Give back to the world

Dru Yoga practitioners tend to enjoy giving back to society, each finding their own unique ways to add to the world. Run a marathon in Rwanda to support rebuilding efforts? Set up a new charity? Climb a mountain for a good cause? Dru Yoga will help you discover the sky is the limit!





* On some occasions we may suggest that you do some more preparation before joining the course, or that another stream of Dru would better serve you. If that happens your deposit is fully refundable.
