Course start dates

We are pleased to be able to offer you the option of 3 different intake dates for this course, which will then combine in September 2018 to form one teacher training course. This gives you a number of options, making it easier to join the course when it's convenient to you.

Weekend two: 21-22 April 2018

Weekend three: 9 - 10 June 2018

Don’t want to teach? That’s OK! You can choose to do this training to become a teacher or for your own personal development. About one third of our students do the course for their own personal growth, knowing that Dru’s deep insights into the body-mind system will make a huge contribution to their lives. Generally, these students find the ‘teacher-training’ aspects of the course very beneficial.

No matter what—you will begin to experience new, higher levels of energy resulting from establishing your own daily yoga practice.  You will also find that you are more relaxed and can cope better with the stresses of everyday life. Above all, this is the start of a wonderful period of in-depth learning, building personal and professional skills, establishing new friendships and an exciting journey of self-discovery! 

Earn as you learn

We’ve tried to make it as easy as possible for you to train as a Dru Yoga teacher. For example, we encourage you to gather informal teaching experience from halfway through the course, after an interim assessment. And from then on, you can easily pay for your course. If you gathered a group of 6 friends together every week, and asked them to pay you £5 each as a student teacher, you would make enough to cover 80-90% of your average monthly payments.

Since 1985 we have trained thousands of Dru Yoga teachers world wide, with many hundreds currently in training. Half our students start to teach before graduation, helping to recoup their costs.
