It is like coming home to a supportive caring family where the emphasis is on nurturing, growth and connection!
Dru is truly holistic yoga for everybody. You have everything to gain and nothing to lose by doing Dru. Dru people are just the best!
A perfect day. I felt a bit tired in the afternoon and a little resistent to working in a group - it turned out to be the best bit!! Full of joy!
The main aspect of the course that I have learnt from the tutors is that 'I can do it!' Dru Yoga is for everyone, including me! There are a wide variety of teachers and Dru can find the teacher in everyone. It has also taught me self-love. This is something that I will carry forwards and always hold onto.
I feel uplifted and less burdened.
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.
Dru has helped me to transform my life slowly; to find some sunshine despite life's challenges. It works subtly and powerfully to bring us back to balance with ourselves and our inner nature. Dru Yoga is suitable for all people of all abilities. Just go for it!
Starting my journey on the Dru Yoga Teacher Training Course was like all my dreams coming true and I cannot wait for the next module. Being amongst supportive, like-minded students and tutors was inspiring and confirmed to me that I can do this!!
I thoroughly enjoyed all the elements of the workshops. As relatively new to this practice, I was grateful that I was able to gain something from each session.
I find Dru meditation really helps to bring balance in myself in this hurly burly world. It is a wonderful tool to take out and share with others.
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.
The masterclass was very informative and well presented and demonstrated. Can't fault it, a very enjoyable day!
The workshop was friendly, stimulating and a nice venue. I enjoyed learning new postures, the different layers of postures, diaphragmatic breathing. It was very clear, a good pace, informative on all levels. Great kindness and care from all tutors.
After completing the first module, I have been given the most amazing insight of how unique Dru Yoga is. I feel excited, inspired and cannot wait to learn more, the way the course is put together and paced is very well thought out, the course materials and the staff are amazing and supportive.
The course has taught me to find the power in gentleness. Previously I was used to fast-paced, high energy yoga, but deep down I knew I wanted a more holistic experience of yoga. The course has certainly delivered on this, deepening my knowledge in all sorts of areas and now I know and appreciate that postures/sequences don't have to be physically demanding to be truly powerful. Also, the whole journey has made me realise that I am enough and that you don't have to be perfect to be fabulous! The support from tutors, helpers, Dru Star Lounge is awesome.
At home, you may not feel safe to fully express yourself. In a non-judgemental environment like this, everyone cares for you and wants you to be the happiest you can be.
I can’t say which is better: the amazing people here or the food!
An expanding experience of the body and mind. A really special & beautiful place to be a part of. Meeting lots of new people, though from very different backgrounds but all wanting to explore further/increase their knowledge of Dru yoga & its various elements and also those who make Dru principles their lives and want to help others enhance their lives.
I particularly enjoyed the bhima warrior posture and the vitality sequence. Also the story and explanation of stretches and muscles. Diaphragm exercise one I will definitely be doing.
Taking this course has helped me to find balance and harmony in my life. No longer buffeted by the opinions and behaviour of others, I have been able to find my true self and be guided by achieving my true self in my actions, feelings, words and thoughts. This has brought me resilience. I like myself (me) far more. This light is shining and I know it is affecting others in a positive way. Don't look externally for what you desire, the answer lies by looking within. This course will give you that.
I am just working on the spine assignment. Apart from really enjoying all the research and information, I had to smile, because whilst writing about the spine and common back problems I have discomfort in my back (chronic) and sitting in one position, not as relaxed as I would like, is aggravating it. I have been taking frequent breaks, doing the Dru stretches, tri spinal release, marjariasana, bringing my knees up and rocking my spine which I love, standing forward bend and squats and when I finish studying each day I do a long relaxation. I have been drinking lots of water as well. I love the fact I have the tools from the Dru to help myself and have the chance to put it all into practice. It's all made such a difference to my back, neck and rest of my body. From a happy yoga student!
This course teaches yoga which everyone can do at all levels and stages so it’s really accessible. The teachers are real pros and have amazing experience to back up the knowledge. My personal practice has improved a lot, so has my memory, concentration, calmness and alertness. I also made very strong friendships with like-minded people.
What I'll take from this postgrad yoga workshop today:- integration of movement and emotions and the affirmations. Also developing asana work at a different pace.
I was really delighted to be the recipient of the most wonderful Ayurveda massage while staying at the Lodge. I had travelled for hours from the north-east of Scotland, so my body was tired and I felt very ungrounded. Sandra gave me the most nurturing massage, which allowed me to rest very deeply and to sleep soundly afterwards. It was a little bit of heaven given by a very caring and attentive therapist. The room and the towels were warm and cosy and the smell of the oils divine. I felt very balanced and peaceful the next day. Thank you.
