The workshop was very friendly and welcoming. Good combination of gentle flows and more challenging movements. I really enjoyed it - learnt some new movements and enjoyed the sequences.

This course came as a support at a difficult time, spiritually, for me. The Spirituality of Yoga Course provided focus, a structure to move forward, and showed me some of the jewels of spiritual practice that will stand me in good stead for years to come. Thank you.

I enjoyed all of this workshop, but particularly EBR3 and the flowing tree. My overall impression was that this workshop was great; very peaceful and as a complete beginner, easy for me to do.

Having attended classes for over a year it was really good to have a taster of a longer session and different poses, breathing techniques. Felt very centred.

This course has really changed me. I feel more confident and it has started me on a much more spiritual path in life. My self-esteem has improved and continues to with each module. 
Dru Yoga is very special, beautiful and powerful on all levels

The Algarve retreat gave me the best gift – to finally believe in myself. I enjoyed walking on the beach every morning to watch the sunrise – to be so close to the sea was wonderful. I loved working with the Dru teachers and appreciated the mentoring sessions – I felt I let go of a lot of personal issues. Thank you!

Ayurveda Retreat

Booking myself on to the Dru Ayurvedic Weekend Retreat is one of the best spontaneous decisions I’ve made in a while. I have a reputation for leaving things until the last minute, in this case I booked my place just an hour before it began! I guess that’s one of the benefits of an online course - I didn’t have to physically get there, just make sure I was out of my PJs before the Zoom meeting went live!!! 
After a few weeks of lockdown and spending perhaps a little too much time reading and watching the news, this online retreat gave me a much needed boost of positivity. It was wonderful to connect with all the other people who were attending, to see so many smiling faces, some new and some familiar. 
The content of the course was superbly presented - a good balance of ‘live’ face to face information sharing, question and answer sessions, some ‘live’ yoga, meditation and chanting and then a series of pre recorded videos to watch. We were given plenty of short breaks throughout the day and a nice long lunch break, time to eat, read our notes, watch the videos and get outside for some fresh air.
Alongside the Zoom live video there was excellent support for anyone with technical problems, via the chat box, email or telephone. The chat was also a place to ask questions and share information.
The Dru Team did a great job of putting this weekend retreat together and I wouldn’t hesitate in joining them for another online course in the future. Obviously if I had the choice I’d prefer to be there in person, but this really is a great alternative until we can do that.

My experience of the Spirituality of Yoga course was a transformational one. I feel such a shift in my energy and my stillness within.  The tutors are an incredible group of gifted people and the students were such a wonderful open hearted community.

LD

Dru Yoga teacher, West Yorkshire

As a qualified Dru Yoga teacher, I thought I had a good understanding of asana and the koshas - which of course I did, but the APD course has taken that level of understanding and more importantly my personal experience of my yoga practice to a different level.  

The course took me on a journey through the koshas in a way that not only increased my awareness of how I experience asana but also how to use asana to reshape my experience.  With the support and guidance of the tutors, I was able to revisit the asana I previously avoided which has contributed to my body being stronger and more flexible than at any time since my twenties - and I now love to practise those asanas.

Emotionally, it has helped me process difficult emotions such as grief and shown the way to change self-limiting beliefs.  For me, the real gift of the course was the tutorials which became the foundation for building a supportive sangha of wonderful yogis which continues to exist.  It was during these sessions of deep personal sharing that our fantastic tutors were able to share further their incredible wisdom and answer the many questions that inevitably spring forth in any process of swadhyaya - I highly recommend this course!

Lucy Cleary

Yoga Teacher and Yoga Therapist, Bolton
I found this Spirituality of Yoga course so helpful.  It was a real treat during this strange time in our world to be able to take my focus deeper inwards.  Each aspect of the course was very well thought-out and taught.  The knowledge and personal experience of each of the tutors shone through, and for me this is what made the course so special.
I have been left with a personal practice that gives me a deeper sense of connection to the world around me, that helps me to feel more accepting of myself, that gives me more resilience for when things are hard, that is helping me to learn to trust myself - and that is helping me to go out into the world and put that love and knowledge into action, to make a difference.

Dru Teacher, Stone

It has deepened my practice and has also given me ideas about the way I practice; the notes of freedom. Ever since taking the course, I have really begun to understand some elements of myself that I knew I needed to work on – I suppose I have become more aware.
In many ways, the course encouraged me to develop and think about key words to use in class and to incorporate more than just the ‘physical experience of yoga’.

Marion Gerritsen

Yoga Teacher, Netherlands
My experience of the Spirituality of Yoga course is that it reminds me of who I am. By remembering. By the examples of the teachers. In a way profound and simple at the same time. Also joyful and deep. It helped me to ease and to be more conscious during the day. About my thoughts, feelings, good etc. A kind of reset and go on again. I am grateful for that and it helps me to trust my inner life/voice more and more.

My experience of the Spirituality of Yoga Course was immensely positive - it couldn't have come at a more perfect time. The live sessions/teachings were so uplifting and authentic. The depth of the tutor's knowledge and experience steered and navigated us with immense skill and care over the 3 weeks and I truly felt 'held' and supported each step of the way. The sense of community and connection created made me feel that I belong and that I'm not alone. This course is fuelled with years, decades of personal experience and knowledge/wisdom and I felt privileged to be a part of this sharing and this coming together. For anyone that feels 'lost' out there, I would urge you to reach out and welcome this amazing experience with open arms.

However long you have been practicing yoga, this was different and very thoughtful - although previous experience helped. The dance session had a beautiful flow - it almost breathed.

I’ve experiences the postures as never before. We looked at them in so much detail I could really see and feel the benefits. Working in pairs was useful with a member of staff on hand to observe.

As a yoga teacher, this course has taken my practice to a level I didn't even know existed!! It has shown me my true path in life and shone a light on it. The course has helped me incredibly in every way by taking classes to a different level and has given me the pathway to connect to people's souls.

I have been doing Dru yoga along with my husband Alan Inglis for a number of years now and go to his classes. I have to say that Dru helped me get my strength and walking ability back after a very severe illness. I am a true fan.

Cheryl Wright

Dru Yoga teacher. Renfrewshire UK
As a recently trained dru yoga teacher I had built up my own daily practice at home greatly influenced by what I had learned on the course and what I felt worked for me. During the DYTT course I was particularly affected by the philosophy assignment based on the spiritual texts which really made me think about how I was living my life and what lessons I could learn from the ancient wisdom. I also felt as if my spiritual self had been lying dormant and was reawakened. This has had a positive impact on my life though I know I have more work to do. It had been  so good to be part of a group  from all different walks of life and age groups who came together because of their experience of Dru. The spirituality of yoga course has given me a similar feeling of connection and an opportunity to fine tune my learning and to focus afresh on the benefits of relaxation and meditation.  Having already established my sacred space, I have expanded on that and taken it into my garden as well. I have rediscovered the pleasure of doing my practice in the garden and simply lying on my mat and contemplating  the sky above me. In lockdown I have the time to journal, to think, to question, to do. Working as part of a group through the zoom sessions allows us to share our experiences, to reflect, to ask questions and to benefit from the insight of questions other people ask. It is a blessing to feel the empathy of others and feel secure within a group of like minded people, all seekers on a path to finding our best selves. Having a shared purpose helps  us to keep practising and exploring the possibilities. I'm very happy to have this opportunity to continue on my spiritual journey.

“An opportunity to connect with the very essence of yoga and meditation in a subtle way. Much more than a retreat it has renewed my belief in myself. Thanks.”
