Donna

Yoga teacher, Llangollen

The course has helped me to integrate my practice into daily life - it has helped me to feel more relaxed about my experiences. I am able to now take my yoga off the mat by developing awareness on physical, pranic, emotional/motivational and knowings. I now feel I'm piecing together a toolkit to use in daily life; be it simply being able to witness something or in being able to do something to shift it.
As a yoga teacher I have been able to guide individual students on a one to one basis to help them remove some quite deep rooted blocks!

I have been inspired by all the tutors. The course has been transformative for me. I have made changes - it has made these possible.

Pilates and Dru Yoga teacher, Isle of Wight
This Spirituality of Yoga has been an amazing experience for me, it has brought me back to my authentic self, helped me to realise that I need connection with nature (even when it's raining!) I have found such a sense of calmness and groundness, with the meditation practice, discovered that I need to value and trust myself.  I know this is just the beginning of my journey and still have a lot to learn, but so looking forward to the ongoing journey with the support and encouragement of the wonderful Dru team!

Reflexologist, Axminster, Devon, UK

I liked the gradual building of positions into a sequence, so that you felt you had mastered each position before it became a sequence, which was very relaxing and confidence building.The workshop overall was friendly and welcoming, whatever level you are, whether you are a beginner or teacher. I was able to achieve positions I previously hadn't been able to because of the slow, precise instruction.

I have benefitted totally from taking part in the Spirituality of Yoga Course, particularly online, so that more people can take part, no travel, and connection wherever we are in the world.  I love having the videos so that I can recreate the experience myself.  I'm excited to be part of a sangha and look forward to continuing over the next year.  I'd really love little 20 minute live reminders of the practices through facebook so we can continue most mornings or whenever we can, together all over the World, like we did in the 5 day challenge, then I can have bite sized reminders to use daily.  Thank you all the team, so much, for making this accessible to me.

Dru teacher, Abergavenny

It has taught me to listen to my own body and the voice inside me that knows exactly what I should say and do. By taking the course, I know that my life will be full of abundance - I have it all inside. I feel I can connect to my pupils on a different level and I am able to help them on their life journey.

I have just completed the Spirituality of Yoga course and I am so very grateful to you all for these beautiful teachings and I do the meditation daily and my spiritual sacred space.  I’m actually going to watch the course again as I think there are a lot of things I may have missed, a bit like revisiting your books, you always see something you never noticed before.  I have definitely felt a shift in my life spiritually and am so very thankful to you all for this.

Very relaxing. I had the best sleep that I have had in years which must have been because I was so totally relaxed.

The Spirituality of Yoga Course was beautifully balanced and life affirming. I now feel a strong connection with the earth and grounded for the first time in my 60 something years! A good starting place for the onward journey. Thank you all.

Louise

Dru Yoga Teacher

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.

I enjoyed everything about this workshop. Nice to be on the receiving end. Padma's introduction to the koshas. The very interesting technique for the diaphragm and diaphragmatic breathing. The pear tree partner work and flowing individual sequence.

Thanks so much for such a wonderful weekend. I really enjoyed connecting with you all again.
 
I know a lot about the topics discussed but hearing them spoken about with such passion by a group of experts really helped to clarify a number of points I was not completely sure about. I found it very motivating and gave me a greater understanding of why I need to do certain practices. I do most of the practices already so I don't really need to add anything. I would like to know more about the herbs that might be useful for me specifically but I would need a personal consultation for that. 
 
Thank you for such an information packed and motivating weekend. I am looking forward to looking all the materials in the course.

Dru Yoga has positively changed my life in all areas. I used to have some sort of block, a kind of disconnect with life. Now everything just flows and I can connect with life on a deeper level.

What I'll take from today's yoga postgrad workshop:- Underpinning the true purpose of yoga - to develop a relationship with the Self that exists deeply within.  Loved the relaxations, especially 'Waves of Peace'. The pancha koshas provide us with a road map for better understanding of our psychological and spiritual development.

Thanks to all the Dru team for such a wonderful 3 weeks on the Spirituality of Yoga course.  I thank you with so much gratitude for the knowledge and wisdom shared by all teachers.  To feel the richness of the love and support was quite profound. Finding your inner peace and stillness is your natural state and this course gave you the tools through yoga, meditation, mantra and nature to help with your spiritual quest.    It was also so beautiful to be part of a community from all over the world with people of like mind who want to make a difference on our amazing earth. Namaste.

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.

The course has helped me to understand the ‘nuts and bolts’ of how Dru yoga works. I feel that it has been great for self-development and identification. It has help me progress in future learning and further development. I also feel the course has inspired my teaching by bringing in more koshic awareness.
