The Algarve retreat touched me deeply, from the inspiring sessions, yoga, meditation, walks and the wonderful friends I made. I felt connected to a new beginning and a clear path opened up to follow through this year and beyond

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.

The spirituality of yoga course and the sangha that followed have really helped me establish a daily meditation practice and have helped me grow in self-confidence and feel more connected with myself.

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.

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.

Great to re-connect with yoga through flowing sequences; energising at same time as being relaxing and nurturing.

Retired Teacher, Llanerch-y-Medd
I feel like this course is enabling me to discover myself, module by module - whether I wanted it or not deep soul searching is ensured and a new ‘me’ is emerging.

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 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.

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 just completed the Spirituality of Yoga course and I am so very grateful to you all for these beautiful teachings and I do the meditation daily and my spiritual sacred space.  I’m actually going to watch the course again as I think there are a lot of things I may have missed, a bit like revisiting your books, you always see something you never noticed before.  I have definitely felt a shift in my life spiritually and am so very thankful to you all for this.

This course really helps you look clearly at yourself, in a very gentle and supportive way. It teaches you to accept and love yourself as you are.

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.

Gaynor

Scientist, Coventry

The course has been so inspiring to me as an individual who was simply interested in yoga at the beginning. I have learned so much from the tutors and my peers and hope to share my learnings with lots of other people in my classes. The depth of the experience has been immense and has developed my passion for yoga philosophy and has made me want to learn so much more - consequently have signed up for my next course already.

Julia Law testimonial

Julia Law

Yoga teacher, Cornwall

Taking this course has helped me to find balance and harmony in my life. No longer buffeted by the opinions and behaviour of others, I have been able to find my true self and be guided by achieving my true self in my actions, feelings, words and thoughts. This has brought me resilience. I like myself (me) far more. This light is shining and I know it is affecting others in a positive way. Don't look externally for what you desire, the answer lies by looking within. This course will give you that.

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.

Ingveld

Norway
Thank you all so much for this! What a precious gift this has been.
Connecting in with teachers and fellow Dru yogis around the world is always a great joy. 
Following the videos and working on the meditations has been everything I have needed this week.
I am opening my classes again here in Norway after having been closed since 12th March. 
So a very special time indeed. 
I feel so blessed - belonging to this community, doing this work, bringing positive change to the world. 
Thank you

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.

Kari

Gwent

On the 5 day spirituality challenge leading up to this course, I realised I did not love myself. Since starting on the Spirituality of Yoga course and working with the practices, I have experienced a deep cellular healing, a shifting in my emotions, deepening into a sense of peace and quiet control/flow of life.

I have had so many realisations on this course; one in particular was a feeling of falling in love with my practice...and wondering if this could lead to an unconditional love commitment to myself to uphold a deeper consistent practice?....

Another insight was a deep self acceptance of where I am at now, giving myself permission to listen to my inner promptings and act on them; rather than see myself as failing when I don't meet my rigid expectations. A bit of freedom..

This course is a must for any spiritual seeker who is looking to deeply anchor and regularly maintain their spiritual practice. You will never look back as you create your own spiritual unfoldment and community to support and carry you forwards. I so look forward to our continuing journey. Thank you to all our Tutors for their sincere, joyful and ongoing commitment to helping us achieve spiritual greatness.

GP, Yorkshire
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.

Dru Yoga has positively changed my life in all areas. I used to have some sort of block, a kind of disconnect with life. Now everything just flows and I can connect with life on a deeper level.

Stevie Foster

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.

Hlary Symmans

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!

What I'll take away from today's postgrad workshop:- sharing with other yoga teachers from other yoga schools of yoga. Great explanation of the koshas and I'll add Salutation to the 4 Directions to my lessons.
