I would like to take this opportunity to say a massive thank you to everyone involved.  The community that every single one of you has contributed to is really special and I feel will move forward and do great things.  Thank you to those who shared your guidance and experience, and thank you to those who brought them tea while they were doing it and those that cleaned the rooms before and after.  I am very excited to move forward and develop xx

I have found a new inner strength that I thought I had lost forever, a renewed sense of confidence in myself, and a joy in life, in nature, in the ‘little’ things. I know when things get tough I will be fine. I can find a quiet and safe haven inside myself which is there always.

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.

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.

A great confidence builder/giver. A place to feel loved and nurtured. I felt the benefit I gained from working with others was fundamental and invaluable to the start of my learning process.

Ingveld

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

I really enjoyed the activations. The relaxation was particularly good. The segmented vitality sequence - very useful technique. I also enjoyed the simplicity of the flowing tree sequence. I enjoyed my day practicing Dru Yoga with a lovely group of people. Thank you Padma, Anne, Sue and Bob.

Isle of Wight
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. 
Julia Law testimonial

Julia Law

Yoga teacher, Cornwall

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

Jane

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’.

There is a new spark to my day which makes me smile. I feel I have been gifted a set of truly beautifully practices to enrich my heart and in turn those around me. The Spirituality of Yoga course was lovingly crafted and delivered brilliantly  online. I highly recommend joining the next course and opening up your heart to a uniquely nourishing and uplifting  experience.

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

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.

Leisa Edwards

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.

Excellent masterclass at a lovely venue. I've wanted to learn EBR8 for a long time. It was well worth it and I've enjoyed catching up with friends and colleagues.

The Spirituality of Yoga course has given me the perfect opportunity to create a much longed for consistent daily yoga practice. I feel this new practice supports my well being and personal development as well as improving how I interact with the people and places around me. Being a part of the SOY course has connected me to so many wonderful people, creating a beautiful feeling of community and friendship, very much appreciated at a time when connection with others has been so limited. The Dru Team made the online version of this course very accessible, with plenty of time to absorb the teachings between sessions and to put in to practice all that was shared. I’m delighted to be a part of the ongoing SOY Sangha and grateful to have this opportunity to both offer and receive support as we continue our spiritual journey together.

Great to re-connect with yoga through flowing sequences; energising at same time as being relaxing and nurturing.
