Claire Phillipson

Dru Yoga Teacher, Derbyshire
The decision to join the Spirituality of Yoga course came to me unexpectedly and after some hesitation.  I'm so thankful that I did!
The practices have affected me, some very deeply, in a way that feels more certain and deep than anything else I've done; awakening new awareness but also drawing me back to long held understandings that had slipped from my life.  Most of all, at this time in my life, in the world, it has helped to experience deep stillness and steadiness, with a renewed compassion for my self as well as others.
On a practical level, the online course fits in easily with daily life, with a balance of learning, practice and space to absorb one thing before moving on.  The videos are all there to go over as many times as needed - and also to return to the energy of the live sessions.
The support throughout is amazing, steady, generous and infused with love, joy and a lot of laughter!  It's been wonderful to feel closer to our amazing tutors and the wider community on the course. I know this is another step in a lifelong process and I'm looking forward to the next stage of the journey....Thank you Dru!x

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

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.

If I could tell myself one thing when I started the course, it would be to Believe. To believe in me, in the training, in the higher goal. The course has given me confidence in myself and shown me that I know more than I think, and am more capable than I ever thought. Inspiring individual both tutors and students have given such support to me and it has been truly a life changing experience.

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!!

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.

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.

Dru yoga teacher, Vinyasa Yoga teacher. South Australia
The Spirituality of Yoga course came at the perfect time, a precious gift from a beautiful soul and dear friend.  I loved the connection, in 4 zoom sessions I fell in love with Jane and all the women in my group.
I loved how safe it felt to speak openly, honestly and from the heart about our experiences as we worked through these potent practises together.  Not together but it felt very connected, supported and a togetherness.  I didn't want it to end.  I love that we can keep the downloaded practises and revisit them often. loads of light and love filled moments

This Spirituality of Yoga course brought me back to my deeper self, and allowed me to feel entirely connected. Not only to those in this Sangha, but also to nature, consciousness, all people and living things. The sequences brought through some profound wisdom and old patterns that I needed to change. I loved the format and the frequency of attendance. Such a gorgeous blessing to have come out of an isolated lockdown situation. I’m looking forward to the next chapter, it has relit my fire for sacred texts and other aspects I have allowed to slip. I feel I am now deeply back on the path I have always meant to be on, and as a result my life feels much richer.

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.

Marion Gerritsen

Yoga Teacher, Netherlands
My experience of the Spirituality of Yoga course is that it reminds me of who I am. By remembering. By the examples of the teachers. In a way profound and simple at the same time. Also joyful and deep. It helped me to ease and to be more conscious during the day. About my thoughts, feelings, good etc. A kind of reset and go on again. I am grateful for that and it helps me to trust my inner life/voice more and more.

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.

I have been doing Dru yoga along with my husband Alan Inglis for a number of years now and go to his classes. I have to say that Dru helped me get my strength and walking ability back after a very severe illness. I am a true fan.

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!

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 am just working on the spine assignment. Apart from really enjoying all the research and information, I had to smile, because whilst writing about the spine and common back problems I have discomfort in my back (chronic) and sitting in one position, not as relaxed as I would like, is aggravating it. I have been taking frequent breaks, doing the Dru stretches, tri spinal release, marjariasana, bringing my knees up and rocking my spine which I love, standing forward bend and squats and when I finish studying each day I do a long relaxation. I have been drinking lots of water as well. I love the fact I have the tools from the Dru to help myself and have the chance to put it all into practice. It's all made such a difference to my back, neck and rest of my body. From a happy yoga student!
