Shona Sutherland, Director Dru Ayurveda and Dru London
The Advanced Practioner course has dramatically increased my awareness of the impact of movement and postures at each of the kosha levels. My practice is now much richer. I have a new toolkit to manage life's challenges. I am much more aware of the koshas in everyday life and have become a witness of reaction, behaviours and motivations. I know have a choice whether to accept these changes or redesign them if necessary.
As a yoga teacher, the course has developed my skills in using language to enrich the practice for students.
The workshop was friendly, stimulating and a nice venue. I enjoyed learning new postures, the different layers of postures, diaphragmatic breathing. It was very clear, a good pace, informative on all levels. Great kindness and care from all tutors.
Very good style of yoga - with many benefits.
I enjoyed the energy and enthusiasm of the teachers and the positive vibe. I love learning new things. The workshop was excellent: enlightening and fulfilling.
The day was wonderful! Thank you. Dru Yoga is amazing; everyone should try it!
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.
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.
I remember reading the course handbook over 2 years ago, thinking and believing I could never do it; not feeling good enough and deep panic and fear about the whole idea of teaching - being in front of people and having the focus on myself. Now I sit here writing this at the end of 2 years, on graduation day, and I say to myself 'you did it!'. You are enough! My head told me I couldn't do it, but my heart said 'yes, you absolutely can'. It has changed my life and I can't recommend the course highly enough! Life is a journey of coming home to yourself, your true and highest Self. Dru Yoga is absolutely helping me to do that.
What I'll take from today's yoga postgrad workshop:- A found it a very holistic day. Sharing the teaching of postures with the others was very useful and I loved the Salutation to the 4 Directions. As usual, great resources and excellent teaching from Anne & Padma. Thank you.
What I'll take from this postgrad yoga workshop today:- integration of movement and emotions and the affirmations. Also developing asana work at a different pace.
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
Dru Yoga really is the Yoga of the Heart. It brings awareness to the heart space and heart - our spiritual heart. Inspiring tutors.
If you want to physically strengthen your body and emotionally enhance your mind, Dru Yoga will give you the tools to take into your daily life and help you cope with the stresses of modern living.
This was a lovely and deeply nourishing day.
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.
I can’t say which is better: the amazing people here or the food!
Dru Dance is a special gift for yourself to nourish and nurture your own practice as a teacher which is often overloaded or neglected when you teach others. I’m looking forward to sharing Dru Dance with students in masterclasses and workshops
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!
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.
What I'll take from today's yoga postgrad workshop:- Underpinning the true purpose of yoga - to develop a relationship with the Self that exists deeply within. Loved the relaxations, especially 'Waves of Peace'. The pancha koshas provide us with a road map for better understanding of our psychological and spiritual development.
There is a greater understanding and a deeper awareness of the essence of Dru Yoga and how it deeply touches and embraces you to align yourself to the truth with you/the higher divine within you.
I think it has brought me to a place of acceptance of myself because I have gained a deeper understanding of myself. I think I’m on the path of aligning myself to the divine within.
Also, I think this course has developed me as a teacher tenfold. I now have more understanding of my students and I am able to give them the opportunity to explore themselves in their practice.
The masterclass was very informative and well presented and demonstrated. Can't fault it, a very enjoyable day!
It has inspired me to be more disciplined with my practice and in addition, to think more deeply about its effect on me at all levels; I’ve learnt so much! The course has also enabled me to continue the process of unwinding, freeing up and reaching out to life!
I have gained more knowledge – I feel more confident. It’s given me a much wider vocabulary to take students into other koshas, to vary my teaching and experiment more.
It has taught me to listen to my own body and the voice inside me that knows exactly what I should say and do. By taking the course, I know that my life will be full of abundance - I have it all inside. I feel I can connect to my pupils on a different level and I am able to help them on their life journey.
I enjoyed all of this workshop, but particularly EBR3 and the flowing tree. My overall impression was that this workshop was great; very peaceful and as a complete beginner, easy for me to do.
