A Dru workshop is always a joy and a treat. Total rejuvenation in a bite sized piece!
Learning that stillness isn’t a scary place to be. Learning to bring balance into your life makes a huge difference.
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.
I enjoyed the whole experience of the Karma Yoga retreat. Great programme for volunteers. I felt appreciated for work done. Felt that everyone worked as a team. Teachers on yoga retreat were great teachers.
The venue is stunning. I felt refreshed and inspired to come again to Karma Yoga retreat in near future. I am considering going on Foundation course and possibly teacher training course
Thank you for changing my life and empowering to go and change other people’s lives now.
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 not only feel empowered to teach but also empowered to be me.
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.
Since starting Dru I feel I have developed a stronger sense of ‘Self’. In everything I try to do to develop myself I am slowly seeing changes also in those I have close contact with. I feel I am calmer and focus on self care- family and work colleagues are beginning to join me
I’m half way into my course and a long way into my heart.
The workshop had a lovely atmosphere. I liked that we are encouraged to work within our personal limits and not over-push ourselves. Kind and gentle vibes. I particularly liked Padma's pear tree as so new and different. The workshop was well organised. A lovely focus on relaxation and breaking down postures into little bite size pieces. All the teachers had their own stye that worked positively to create a positive whole experience.
Very relaxing. I had the best sleep that I have had in years which must have been because I was so totally relaxed.
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.
What I enjoyed the most was learning the beautiful EBR 8.
Thank you so much Chris; I feel as though I am, at last, making some progress with my meditation practice. Breaking the process down to simple parts makes it so much more achievable and understandable. Namaste.
With love, patience, knowledge and a lot of fun you become empowered to be a wonderful teacher. For me the training is perfect in many regards. Wonderful balance between practical and theoretical learning. I bet anyone could do that!
My visit to Dru yoga has helped me grow
How to live my life and how to know
A simple act of caring and kindness can create an endless ripple
With goodness, well meaning and sincere feelings
A full heart for sharing and how to be more caring
Now more awake with my eyes wide open
It's helped a part of me which has lain dormant
It's been hidden because of life's torments
Looking at things now with new expectations
I can offer more value to my friends and relations
A happier and more contented person inside
Dru has helped provide me with some expertise
How to live life to the full, enriched and at peace
Poem from the Dru Yoga teacher training.
The Dru Youth courses have completely changed my life over the years I’ve come. They’ve given me the tools I need to stay positive, grounded, and handle life in ways I would never have been able to without it.
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.
Coherence / flow / good management / joy / serenity. Delighted to take part and learn some new and exciting interpretations of yoga. Very happy that you opened this masterclass out to non-Dru yoga teachers.
A lovely day, relaxing, informative, fun, happy. Thank you
Snowdonia is a great place to start your journey. The tuition and support team of previous students are so motivating that you feel totally supported in achieving your own goals.
I enjoyed the challenging yoga moves with Padma before and after lunch. It was a beautiful day for me - an opportunity to take care of my wellbeing and remind myself of good practice that I can do at home, with kindness to myself.
I learned about various aspects of Dru in a relaxed and friendly environment. As someone who does not mix easily, I felt at home immediately.
What I'll take from today's yoga postgrad workshop:- A desire to now train as a Dru Yoga teacher, to complement and grow my original BWY teaching qualification. After 19 years, time to open the door to new and fresh stimulation to continue to grow on my yoga path.
Dru Ayurveda & Yoga workshop:- A thoroughly enjoyable day, enlightening me to how I can work on my health and happiness with minimal effort - great for a kapha type!
Dru is the power tool I use to clear the debris from my body and mind.
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.
