Spirituality of Yoga Course

With the technology available to us to be able to be watch live and then be able to review it all at your leisure followed up by the tutorials was a very nurturing way to learn. Many thanks to all involved  for such a wonderful experience

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.

After coming here and being with so many brilliant and bright people, it’s more like coming home, than a holiday or break.

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.

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.

Pilates and Dru Yoga teacher, Isle of Wight
This Spirituality of Yoga has been an amazing experience for me, it has brought me back to my authentic self, helped me to realise that I need connection with nature (even when it's raining!) I have found such a sense of calmness and groundness, with the meditation practice, discovered that I need to value and trust myself.  I know this is just the beginning of my journey and still have a lot to learn, but so looking forward to the ongoing journey with the support and encouragement of the wonderful Dru team!

The Spirituality of Yoga course has inspired me to continue to develop my Sadahana practice particularly with relevance to meditation and sacred texts.

Carolyn Bennett

Dru Teacher, Bristol

Participating in the course has helped me to go deeper and experience things about myself that I have not experienced before. It brought up emotions and has enabled me to find tools that help me to deal with them. I am a lot more confident in everything I do; I feel comfortable with myself, my life and now find that I am able to deal with everything which comes my way. My language has developed and I now feel confident to use words to try and take my students into experiencing all kosha levels.

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.

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.

Having attended classes for over a year it was really good to have a taster of a longer session and different poses, breathing techniques. Felt very centred.

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.

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

An expanding experience of the body and mind. A really special & beautiful place to be a part of. Meeting lots of new people, though from very different backgrounds but all wanting to explore further/increase their knowledge of Dru yoga & its various elements and also those who make Dru principles their lives and want to help others enhance their lives.

My experience of the Spirituality of Yoga Course was immensely positive - it couldn't have come at a more perfect time. The live sessions/teachings were so uplifting and authentic. The depth of the tutor's knowledge and experience steered and navigated us with immense skill and care over the 3 weeks and I truly felt 'held' and supported each step of the way. The sense of community and connection created made me feel that I belong and that I'm not alone. This course is fuelled with years, decades of personal experience and knowledge/wisdom and I felt privileged to be a part of this sharing and this coming together. For anyone that feels 'lost' out there, I would urge you to reach out and welcome this amazing experience with open arms.

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 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.

Having come to the end of the Spirituality of Yoga adventure I am looking forward to taking this further. It was a truly beautiful experience shared with and offered by such open souls. We attuned with nature, nourished ourselves with uplifting yoga and meditation and were offered wisdom to weave into our daily lives. We met as like minded friends to discuss our practice devoting ourselves to explore our spiritual path. Thank you Dru I am so glad to be part of this journey.

The workshop was warm, friendly, very interesting and mind altering. It was all inclusive, encouraging and well put together.

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

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
