Your experiences

Estate agent, Plymouth, Devon, UK

I really enjoyed being amongst like-minded yogis. I enjoyed the moving posture work as it's not often I do postures I tend to do EBR[s or sequence work. I enjoyed the sequence this afternoon. I absolutely love all of these workshops and they keep me connected, both with new yogis and in my own body and mind. There was. very good mix of exercises, things to think bout and contributing verbally.

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

I liked the warm-up - the twist, my era! It was a good venue; comfortable and nice choice of refreshments. The workshop was lovely, gentle and supportive. Reaffirms why I love yoga.

What I'll take from today's yoga postgrad workshop:- My favourite part was the Salutation to the 4 Directions. I love doing and teaching this already, but really enjoyed using colour and affirmations within the sequence.

Firstly, what a professional bunch you all are there at Dru! The love, enthusiasm and dedication put in by the tutors and support staff was hugely impressive - never in 50 years have I been on such a good, well done, well thought out course with such enthusiastic and caring people - you make me realise how bad a lot of the courses I have been on were! A hugely liberating and affirming life experience- the air almost crackled with the positive energy of the tutors, support staff and students. I felt a foot taller, twenty years younger and brimming with energy!!

Dru Yoga is so gentle and flowing with no forced movement; my body always feels so much better after practising.

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.

Dru has helped me to transform my life slowly; to find some sunshine despite life's challenges. It works subtly and powerfully to bring us back to balance with ourselves and our inner nature. Dru Yoga is suitable for all people of all abilities. Just go for it!

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'.

A perfect day. I felt a bit tired in the afternoon and a little resistent to working in a group - it turned out to be the best bit!! Full of joy!

This week was incredibly fantastic. I did not only reload my body energy and unwind my mind about any worries, but I totally felt like I had an uploaded bubble-bath!
With this experience Dru makes it much easier for me to bring the techniques into my daily life. Thank you for the amazing way you take care!

Teacher, Cornwall

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.

Dru Yoga is like an onion, peeling the layers to discover who you are and want to be!

It’s like a spider's web - you can delve into so many facets of physical practice, to the food you eat, to your emotional well-being. All ending in the an amazing feeling of well-being.

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

A wonderful way to spend a Saturday afternoon. Taking time out from busy schedules and just pausing to take care of myself and be in the moment. I feel very calm and centred.

What I enjoyed about this workshop was the dynamic relaxation - so relaxing I fell asleep! I liked the vitality sequence and useful explanations of the koshas. The workshop planning and presentation was of a high standard. Excellent balance of sessions. Thanks to all involved.

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.

You’ll make friends who will last the rest of your life and become really self aware in what you want to do in your life and how to reach your goals.

These Dru Youth yoga retreats are so beneficial and have given me so much confidence to be my true self in everything I do and my everyday choices. 
When I feel stressed or going through a rough time it is so amazing to remember that I have such a close support network from Dru  who all share their support, love and care with everyone whenever it is needed. This love, care and support is always reciprocated. 
Dru Yoga courses are such an amazing experience to have. I think everyone would benefit from having an experience like that. They teach you so many stress-relieving techniques that everyone can benefit from.
The friends and memories you make at Dru stay with you for life. 
I look forward to the Dru Youth course all year round
