There was lots of variation, some easy, some more challenging. Lots of explanation about how to move and the theory behind the moves. I love to know stuff :).

Positive, loving people, learning things deeper, connecting with the earth and loving what’s already here on earth and appreciating it.

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.

When I came along to a Youth course at Dru I didn’t really know what to expect as I had no prior experience with any yoga. But it was a really enjoyable experience and I’m glad I made the decision to go.
The people on the course were all really nice, and I’m friends with everyone I’ve met through the retreats.
Also, the food is really incredible, you will love it.
I’ve always had really tense back and shoulder muscles, resulting in poor posture and poor shoulder flexibility. Even though at first difficult if you stick with it you will eventually see results, as I have.
If you’re considering coming to a Dru Youth retreat I would recommend it, and I found it to be really worhwhile

Yoga teacher, Helston, Cornwall

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.

If you are thinking of doing the teacher training course, I would say just do it. You get more flexibility and knowledge of yoga, find peace in yourself with the ability to pass it on to others. Each one you meet knows there is something about you with a readience of peace and confidence around you. 'Find your inner light of peace'.

LD

Dru Yoga teacher, West Yorkshire

As a qualified Dru Yoga teacher, I thought I had a good understanding of asana and the koshas - which of course I did, but the APD course has taken that level of understanding and more importantly my personal experience of my yoga practice to a different level.  

The course took me on a journey through the koshas in a way that not only increased my awareness of how I experience asana but also how to use asana to reshape my experience.  With the support and guidance of the tutors, I was able to revisit the asana I previously avoided which has contributed to my body being stronger and more flexible than at any time since my twenties - and I now love to practise those asanas.

Emotionally, it has helped me process difficult emotions such as grief and shown the way to change self-limiting beliefs.  For me, the real gift of the course was the tutorials which became the foundation for building a supportive sangha of wonderful yogis which continues to exist.  It was during these sessions of deep personal sharing that our fantastic tutors were able to share further their incredible wisdom and answer the many questions that inevitably spring forth in any process of swadhyaya - I highly recommend this course!

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".

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.

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 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.

Gaynor

Scientist, Coventry

The course has been so inspiring to me as an individual who was simply interested in yoga at the beginning. I have learned so much from the tutors and my peers and hope to share my learnings with lots of other people in my classes. The depth of the experience has been immense and has developed my passion for yoga philosophy and has made me want to learn so much more - consequently have signed up for my next course already.

As a yoga teacher, this course has taken my practice to a level I didn't even know existed!! It has shown me my true path in life and shone a light on it. The course has helped me incredibly in every way by taking classes to a different level and has given me the pathway to connect to people's souls.

We had a really great day yesterday.  The mixture of yoga, relaxation, cooking demonstrations and eating was just right.  It has left me wanting to know more about doshas and how yoga and food can balance someone.  We also loved the partner poses, beautiful and fun.
