What I enjoyed about this workshop was the dynamic relaxation - so relaxing I fell asleep! I liked the vitality sequence and useful explanations of the koshas. The workshop planning and presentation was of a high standard. Excellent balance of sessions. Thanks to all involved.

My experience of the Spirituality of Yoga course was that it was truly amazing!  Teachers of Dru and students alike, can really gain from the support and wisdom of this beautiful course.  It reminds us gently and realistically, of all of that we can aspire to and how to achieve it within our daily 'sadhana' setting, so that we can be 'true to ourselves', whilst offering more to others.   The extra support and guidance offered, before, during and after the course, if required, makes it even more remarkable.  I found it to be a wonderful course to do, particularly during these most challenging times.  I would recommend it to everyone.
