How will the course benefit my classes
The course is designed to enhance your teaching skills and enable you to work confidently with students who experience back pain, using therapeutic techniques from Dru Yoga.
The Dru Back Care course is a part of our postgraduate education programme and can be undertaken as a stand-alone module, with an emphasis on the practical application of yoga in a class-based setting. You will study current guidelines for back care in the NHS, current medical management, and potential diagnoses that yoga teachers encounter in their students.
In addition, the course will examine back problems through an understanding of koshas, chakras and prana; how the practice of Dru Yoga benefits the spine; how yoga can be adapted for back problems; and how to approach relaxation as an essential tool.
Participants on this course will be asked to conduct a series of classes for people with back problems and to complete a written reflection of their experience between the first and second weekend. On successful completion of the course, you will receive a certificate.
To give yoga teachers deeper knowledge, skills and confidence when teaching yoga students with back problems in their classes.

I learned so much in my first module of the teacher training about Dru Yoga. I love the graceful, flowing movements and the way my body feels after a Dru yoga session. It is very different from any other style of yoga I have ever done. Your body feels more flexible and energised and your mind feels calm and relaxed. I loved every aspect of the course. It was well delivered with a good mix of theory and practical sessions each day. The books given as part of the course are excellent.
I learned about various aspects of Dru in a relaxed and friendly environment. As someone who does not mix easily, I felt at home immediately.
I feel much calmer and stronger than ever before and love that I now have a gift to share.
