Access experienced tutors with 20-40 yrs professional practice
When you teach a style of yoga that is underpinned by scientific research showing extensive health benefits then it opens so many doors for you. You can work alongside health professionals, schools, workplaces and in so many different sectors.
In randomised controlled trials Dru Yoga has shown to:
- increase energy levels
- maintain a healthy back
- improve resilience to stress
- enhance emotional well-being
- reduce sickness absence days.
Such research enables Dru Yoga teachers to work with large employers including private companies, county councils, schools, government agencies, professional sport teams and the NHS.
A randomised controlled trial involving 75 government workers, published in Occupational Medicine in September 2012, showed that Dru Yoga significantly reduced both stress and back pain at work—two of the key factors leading to sickness absence. After an eight-week programme, Dru Yoga group scores (when compared with a control group) were significantly lower for perceived stress, back pain, sadness and hostility, and significantly higher for feeling self-assured, attentive and serene.
Sponsored by Bangor University and the NHS, a new randomised controlled trial with 150 NHS employees (published in Occupational Medicine in December 2017) found that an eight- week Dru Yoga programme resulted in less back pain, fewer sickness absence days and significant cost savings for the NHS.

Build Community with Every Class
One of the most healing things you can ever do is to build a community in the classroom. Management trainers have done our training course not just for the yoga, but to learn how to run the energetics of a team—and all the principles of team-building.
And the other great things about the course is the community of like-minded people you’ll meet and develop friendships with. It can be lonely being a spiritual warrior, or a person who yearns to live a compassionate lifestyle.
Imagine a whole roomful of people just like you! Some of whom will go onto become lifelong friends—it happens on every course.
