Maggie Sanderson

Dru Yoga & Meditation teacher, The Netherlands
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.

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.

I learned about various aspects of Dru in a relaxed and friendly environment.  As someone who does not mix easily, I felt at home immediately.

Dru yoga and Meditation teacher. Tasmania, Australia

Spirituality of Yoga Course

I really loved how all Dru presenters shared their love and Dru joy as though they were really jumping out of the screen and into my room and my heart and mind.
I found the Adhikari Namaskar incredibly beautiful to learn, to practice, and to have ready for ALL occasions and events that require learning. The physical/energy movements, mudras and affirmations are truly wonderful.
The Abundant Heart meditation reaches far and wide in my world. I find it so rich with love, and with daily support from vedic archetypes, mantras, mudra and abundant opportunities to stay in contact with Jane, Andrew and the Dru Sangha.
I am feeling a sense of the high joy and love I first experienced meeting Dru Yoga for the first time, and having Dru so regularly, visually and auditory in my life again.

SEN Teacher, Leeds
The Spirituality of Yoga Course was a beautiful oasis of calm in an otherwise quite stressful time. I felt held and nurtured by the tutors and the practices they offered us. The group developed into a real community of people upholding, supporting and gently challenging it's members to make a commitment to ourselves and our spiritual growth.

The Spirituality of Yoga was a great course, very inspirational and also quite practical. And it was perfect to raise the mind above the worries and problems linked to the world situation. I certainly want to carry on with the follow up and can’t wait for the next one.

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.

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.

Sally

Retired IT Manager, Derbyshire

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.

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.

Nicky Cassell

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.

Dru invites you to work at a much deeper level, it is an inside out journey. When you arrive at that place where you realise the commitment required, jump in, embrace it, live it and breathe it.

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 :).

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

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.

The teaching/learning has been fantastic, however there have been many other benefits on a more personal level that I hadn’t expected. Being immersed in yoga, with wonderful people in a beautiful setting has allowed me to ground myself, reflect and focus. Thank you and I can’t wait for module 2.

Louise Edwards

Clwyd, UK
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.

I would thoroughly recommend the APD to anyone that is considering doing it.
I have benefitted enormously from it.
I did the course during the covid pandemic lockdown. A time of anxiety and fear. The knowledge that I gained helped me to recognise and acknowledge my feelings and gave me tools to deal with them.
The yoga postures , sequences and breathing techniques that are already familiar can be used to change our emotional energy.
In the same way that we have learnt to scan our physical body for aches and pains and stiffness or injury and use yoga postures and stretches to ease ourselves , I have learnt to scan my emotional and energetic body and recognise negative thoughts and patterns and how to correct them. By doing this regularly I feel more self-confident and happy .
I remember a very powerful moment when we were doing the Eagle posture and imagining that we were looking down at ourselves and what we perceived. I thought ‘ I am cool ‘ ! That thought has stayed with me.

The Algarve retreat gave me the best gift – to finally believe in myself. I enjoyed walking on the beach every morning to watch the sunrise – to be so close to the sea was wonderful. I loved working with the Dru teachers and appreciated the mentoring sessions – I felt I let go of a lot of personal issues. Thank you!
