Eight reasons you'll love Dru Yoga
1. Your back will feel better
In a survey of 450 Dru Yoga students, 72% found Dru Yoga reduced their back pain. Dru is designed to be very safe, working to balance your back muscles, clear discomfort and avoid injury.
Dru Yoga fixed my chronic back pain which I suffered with for 11 years. I was told I would be in a wheel chair & that I needed an operation. Now I have a healthy, supple, strong back & I can more than touch my toes. Love you Dru xx
2. You’ll feel blissfully relaxed and renewed
Dru Yoga is a unique combination of activation, energy block release sequences, asanas, and a long deep guided relaxation which together create a great feeling of well-being.
3. We’re an international, well-established school
Dru is one of the UK's leading yoga teacher training schools, and we're here to stay. Dru Yoga teacher training courses started in the 1980s, and now there are training schools all over the globe: in the UK, Australia, New Zealand, The Netherlands and Canada – all in all there are over 14 locations worldwide where you can train to be a Dru teacher.
4. It’s proven to reduce stress
A 2011 study published in the Scandinavian Journal of Work Environment and Health showed that Dru Yoga significantly improved wellbeing and resilience to stress in the workplace, compared to a control group. More research is being done on the benefits of Dru Yoga for back pain and other health challenges.
In the world's first randomised controlled trials into the benefits of yoga in the workplace, Dru Yoga has been shown to significantly decrease back pain, increase performance under stress, boost confidence and emotional wellbeing:
- Self confidence under stress - up 650%
- More clear-minded - up 500%
- Less depressed - by 240%
- More energised - up 370%
- Higher life purpose - up 330%
Could you make a career teaching this? Dru Yoga teaching is a great way to make a living doing what you love.
It amazes me how Dru Yoga can transform my whole personality to become a calmer, kinder and energised person. I love the moves, the people, the philosophy and the environment of Dru. About to start the teacher training course - I can't wait.

‘What does Dru do for me? It keeps me sane! It gives me space to be me. It takes me out of my thoughts and into the present moment. And the house is tidier, and I'm more patient, and I laugh more.’ - Lucy Cleary

In my Dru Yoga classes I’ve noticed my students experience a sense of emotional positivity and deep-rooted change.
8. It touches body, mind and spirit
You won’t just be touching your toes with Dru. It’s based on ancient yogic wisdom and includes meditation, mudras (hand gestures) and pranayama (directed breathing) which bring a deep sense of inner peace, no matter how busy you are!
