Dru Yoga teacher
I taught a six week Dru Yoga Therapy programme to a client who had uncontrolled epilepsy and chronic pain - which prevented him from sleeping more than two hours at a time. He now takes no painkillers and sleeps all night.
Yoga therapy for all
If you are a yoga teacher having graduated from a recognised 200 hour (minimum) teacher training course, and you have been teaching for at least two years after your graduation, then you will be eligible to apply to join the Dru Yoga therapy diploma course.
Dru Yoga and therapy
The Dru Yoga approach is based in yoga therapy. All Dru Yoga practices are designed to use the panch-kosha, or five layer system that is integral to understanding the causes of illness and help find yoga solutions.
Dru yoga and health research
University research shows Dru Yoga eases back pain, decreases stress, reduces anxiety and fatigue... while boosting confidence and emotional well-being. With the extra skills of being able to create specific therapeutic programmes, you'll have an unbeatable tool to help your students and clients.
Be accredited as a yoga therapist
The succesful graduate of this course will be able to register with the Australian Association of Yoga Therapists (AAYT) - the peak body for yoga therapy in Australia. You will be recognised as being able to work within a clinical setting alongside other health professionals such as osteopaths, GPs, medics and complementary health practitioners.
