Dru Kids & Teens Online Teacher Training 2020
What a interesting time we're in at the moment, a time for us to stop and reflect, to wonder, dream and re-set! It's a time for humanity to awaken to the possibilities of new beginnings and new futures.
The Dru Kids & Teens course (DKT) is going ahead this year, but it too has needed to reset and find creative ways to move forward. It's now being delivered online so you can receive these wonder-filled teachings no matter where you live in Australasia!
DKT is designed to inspire, inform and ignite a passion to work with children and teenagers from a Dru perspective.
It offers a wonderful toolbox to dip into, helping you to:
expand your teaching repertoire, bringing joy and creativity to teaching children and adults alike
open the way for new business opportunities so you make a living from your Dru Yoga teacher training
learn tips on how to deliver yoga online
add another string to your bow making a real difference in the world
‘You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth.’
To register for the DKT teacher training you need to be a DYTT graduate or a student having passed your DYTT interim assessment.

I not only enjoyed it, I loved it! Thank you. It really helped me to feel my core stability muscles. I'm looking forward training them ;-)
If you want to physically strengthen your body and emotionally enhance your mind, Dru Yoga will give you the tools to take into your daily life and help you cope with the stresses of modern living.
Thank you, this was lovely. It was great to have your teaching in my home! Great production also - good picture, good sound, easy to fast forward and great that I could see what was happening as I fast forwarded so I knew when to stop. I also like the way Dru Online is bringing us more specific subjects like this one, that before we have only seen in the workbooks. Thank you.
