This course has been an amazing adventure. Teachers with wide spectrum of qualities, bringing you into guided meditations, breathing, asanas and EBRs. A 14-day journey to inner peace, letting go and allowing to transform. The most beautiful gift you can give to yourself. Thank you Dru!

The Spirituality of Yoga helped me to focus what is important to me in my life right now. My heart knows the path I wish to follow. With the practices I felt my distractions melt away and I felt myself expanding consciously. Exactly what I was looking for.
