What people say about Dru...

Your experiences

Kaye Wensor

Burwood East, Australia, Reiki Master
Joining the Online Dru Yoga community has been an excellent decision on my part, & I cannot wait to try so many of the routines & meditations that I receive. I am well into the ones I have already, & can feel the benefits while I am actually doing them - even for the first time.
 
I have an amazing teacher in Emmeline Fooks, with whom I have lessons twice per week. We continued with our program even through the very long lockdown we had in Melbourne & my times with her were the highlights of my week. They still are as I await my next lesson today.
 
Thank you again for your wonderful Dru Yoga in all its forms - it fits me like a glove!

I learned so much in my first module of the teacher training about Dru Yoga. I love the graceful, flowing movements and the way my body feels after a Dru yoga session. It is very different from any other style of yoga I have ever done. Your body feels more flexible and energised and your mind feels calm and relaxed. I loved every aspect of the course. It was well delivered with a good mix of theory and practical sessions each day. The books given as part of the course are excellent.

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.

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.

In the Spirituality of Yoga course I have learned to intensify my yoga practice, find Dru points and learn beautiful sequences that amongst others help my meditation to flow. About my meditation, well.. I did try to do regularly in the past, but after this course I even like to sit down more often and so I also intensified, still intensify, my meditation. And doing all that I have a lighter heart during the days "off the mat".

Spirituality of Yoga Course

It has helped me stick to a regular practice and take my attention outwards to community at a time when it would be easy to be insular.

As a Dru Yoga teacher I have loved challenging myself to learn something new. The fun uplifting dance of Santosh has given me confidence and renewed energy.

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.

Hlary Symmans

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!

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.

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

Yoga teacher, actress/performer and author, North Wales
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.

SEN Teacher, Leeds
The Spirituality of Yoga Course was a beautiful oasis of calm in an otherwise quite stressful time. I felt held and nurtured by the tutors and the practices they offered us. The group developed into a real community of people upholding, supporting and gently challenging it's members to make a commitment to ourselves and our spiritual growth.

Dru Yoga & Meditation teacher, The Netherlands
The Spirituality of Yoga helped me to focus what is important to me in my life right now. My heart knows the path I wish to follow. With the practices I felt my distractions melt away and I felt myself expanding consciously. Exactly what I was looking for.

Retired Teacher, Llanerch-y-Medd
I feel like this course is enabling me to discover myself, module by module - whether I wanted it or not deep soul searching is ensured and a new ‘me’ is emerging.
Marianne Wootton testimonial

Marine biologist, Cornwall

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.

Dru Yoga is accessible to everyone; you don’t have to be able to do the lotus posture to start to practise. Just Dru it!

Thank you all so much for this! What a precious gift this has been.
Connecting in with teachers and fellow Dru yogis around the world is always a great joy. 
Following the videos and working on the meditations has been everything I have needed this week.
I am opening my classes again here in Norway after having been closed since 12th March. 
So a very special time indeed. 
I feel so blessed - belonging to this community, doing this work, bringing positive change to the world. 
Thank you
