I’ve experiences the postures as never before. We looked at them in so much detail I could really see and feel the benefits. Working in pairs was useful with a member of staff on hand to observe.

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.

This course came as a support at a difficult time, spiritually, for me. The Spirituality of Yoga Course provided focus, a structure to move forward, and showed me some of the jewels of spiritual practice that will stand me in good stead for years to come. Thank you.

This weekend has released a huge amount of energy and joy in me. I have found my teacher training school and I now know that I want to teach Dru Yoga!

Stevie Foster

Teacher, Leeds
Ayurveda Retreat
 
Thanks so much for such a wonderful weekend. I really enjoyed connecting with you all again.
 
I know a lot about the topics discussed but hearing them spoken about with such passion by a group of experts really helped to clarify a number of points I was not completely sure about. I found it very motivating and gave me a greater understanding of why I need to do certain practices. I do most of the practices already so I don't really need to add anything. I would like to know more about the herbs that might be useful for me specifically but I would need a personal consultation for that. 
 
Thank you for such an information packed and motivating weekend. I am looking forward to looking all the materials in the course.

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.

Thanks to all the Dru team for such a wonderful 3 weeks on the Spirituality of Yoga course.  I thank you with so much gratitude for the knowledge and wisdom shared by all teachers.  To feel the richness of the love and support was quite profound. Finding your inner peace and stillness is your natural state and this course gave you the tools through yoga, meditation, mantra and nature to help with your spiritual quest.    It was also so beautiful to be part of a community from all over the world with people of like mind who want to make a difference on our amazing earth. Namaste.

The workshop was very friendly and welcoming. Good combination of gentle flows and more challenging movements. I really enjoyed it - learnt some new movements and enjoyed the sequences.

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.

Yoga changed my life! I started the course feeling anxious, unsure of myself and afraid of the future. I finished it empowered, confident and ready to teach Dru Yoga to anyone that wants to learn!

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!

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.

Nice sociable, friendly day. Great mix of activity and relaxation - positive atmosphere. I enjoyed all aspects. Hope I can remember some things to add to my yoga practice. The workshop was well organised and planned - all running very smoothly. All teachers very enthusiastic, confident and reassuring.

Linda Griffiths

Dru Yoga and Meditation Teacher, Porthcawl
My name is Linda I did the Meditation teacher training in 2010, after teaching Dru Yoga for 6 yrs.
Knowing the benefits that Dru Yoga had for me, I then went on to teach both Dru Yoga and Meditation, I found that Dru Meditation took my practice to another level, I became a much calmer person, slept better, my outlook on life changed, my love for nature increased, what I found astounding was when I began teaching meditation, was watching, over the course of time the wonderful changes in people, it was almost like they were blossoming !
So many of my students told they felt so much better since beginning to meditate.
I would recommend the Dru Meditation Course to anyone, it really is a life changer.

The Spirituality of Yoga Course was beautifully balanced and life affirming. I now feel a strong connection with the earth and grounded for the first time in my 60 something years! A good starting place for the onward journey. Thank you all.

Mairi MacNaughton

Clinical Manager /Person centred therapist, Glasgow
The Spirituality of Yoga course allowed me to connect back in with my self at a time when the external world had become very challenging and uncertain. Through the various tools and teachings from the course, It reminded me of the strength that lies within and the stillness that is there.  This  benefited me on a individual level but also my family and my colleagues and clients as I was able to share a sense of clarity and calmness back  into the workplace.

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’.

I have just completed session 1 of the Swadharma Dru Dance Course and I wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed the dance. I already feel that I have started to develop some muscle memory and connection with the spirit of the dance. So well done, great teaching. Also great design of a very relevant and creative practice utilising ancient wisdom and symbology to open awareness of Swadharma. Perfectly right for me at this time. 

Thank you and I am looking forward to the next sessions enthusiastically.

My experience of The Spirituality of Yoga Course was amazing.  The tutors were so warm and friendly and made the content really accessible.  The course was extremely well-planned and built up step by step.  As it was quite intensive, I think if you were new to yoga and meditation you might have needed a longer time between sessions for absorbing and practising.  However, as we were able to download the sessions (a wonderful gift), there is plenty of time for replaying and reinforcing the learning.   I enjoyed every minute of the course and am very grateful that I had the opportunity to take part.

Lucy Cleary

Yoga Teacher and Yoga Therapist, Bolton
I found this Spirituality of Yoga course so helpful.  It was a real treat during this strange time in our world to be able to take my focus deeper inwards.  Each aspect of the course was very well thought-out and taught.  The knowledge and personal experience of each of the tutors shone through, and for me this is what made the course so special.
I have been left with a personal practice that gives me a deeper sense of connection to the world around me, that helps me to feel more accepting of myself, that gives me more resilience for when things are hard, that is helping me to learn to trust myself - and that is helping me to go out into the world and put that love and knowledge into action, to make a difference.
