Dru Meditation teacher training
The Dru Meditation teacher training course is one of Australia's most comprehensive meditation training courses. Whether you want to teach meditation or just learn to meditate effortlessly for yourself, Dru Meditation teacher training will bring you much more than relaxation and deep peace.

I came to the first module of the Dru Meditation course feeling worn out and tired. I left totally energised, focused and rejuvenated. How wonderful to feel like this!
On this course we emphasise the science of meditation, showing how to bring your awareness from the physical body through to the deepest layers of your being.
You'll discover how to become the master of your mind and emotions so that you can enter meditation quickly and effortlessly. .
You'll explore how to perceive the energetic state of a group, and choose appropriate techniques to optimise their energy, relaxation and meditation.
You’ll also learn how to access your individual and universal life-force, helping you to generate a plentiful source of internal energy reserves. We teach you how to use the power of vibration and mantra to achieve a deep understanding of your place in the world and, above all we show you how to pass on this experience to others too!
Amongst other things, you will learn:
- structuring and planning meditation classes
- potent Dru prana kriyas, pranayama, mudra and visualisation techniques
- meditations for each layer of experience, or 'kosha'
- meditation for the workplace
- a deep understanding of subtle energy
- profound abilities to manage classroom and group energetics
- meditative prayer and contemplation techniques
- chanting/singing and mantra meditation
- meditation for healing the body and the earth
Course entry requirements
In order for us to be able to move the whole group ahead at the same pace, we expect you to have attended two Dru Meditation retreats before the teacher training course, and to be familiar with the basic Dru Yoga and Meditation techniques found on those retreats. These include:
- knowledge of the chakras and subtle energy systems
- working knowledge of Energy Block Release sequences 1, 2 & 3 and other Dru Yoga sequences
- experience of the prana kriya techniques
- good knowledge of the vertical alignment, blue mist and other techniques taught on the preparatory retreats
- an established daily meditation practice.
Australia is a large country, and if you are unable to meet all of these criteria we will help you tailor individual solutions.
You can join the current course at module 2 on 17-20 March 2016
Would you like to train to be an effective meditator and potent meditation teacher?
Each module takes you progressively through the five layers of experience (koshas).
You will develop a regular meditation practice and will be given detailed guidelines for optimising your personal experience of meditation.
You will explore methods for teaching a wide range of meditation techniques, how to manage classroom energetics and how to understand students' meditation experiences, and you will practice teaching your fellow students through the senior modules of the course.
If you are choosing to do the course for your own personal development, without any intention of becoming a teacher, you will find our teaching practice sessions to be supportive, friendly and invaluable for your own mastery of the techniques.
Home study will consist of refining your practice.
Frequently asked questions
When are the next meditation retreats I need to attend to apply for the course?
Please email us for details of upcoming preparatory events (firstname.lastname@example.org).
I've not done any Dru before - is this course right for me?
Many of the people on this course are already Dru Yoga teachers, so you'll need to catch up on Dru Yoga through attending a weekly class and/or using Dru DVDs and books. You will also need to come to the 2 retreats to get to know our style of meditation and learn the pre-requisite techniques.
I am a Dru Yoga graduate - do I have to attend both retreats to apply?
Please contact the tutors (email@example.com) and we can assess whether you'll be able to manage with just one retreat as a preparation.
