The Spirituality of Yoga course was very thought provoking and helpful. I think this will help me a lot as a teacher and also with my personal yoga practice

Alison Hayward

Dru yoga teacher. Devon
The Spirituality of Yoga course has been particularly helpful to me in anchoring my morning wellbeing practice.  I had already started doing a short morning walk in nature, but this now involves me walking barefoot on the grass for part of my walk, and being able to do some yoga outdoors in what has become my sacred space.  This has lifted my mood and I find that I am in a more contented state than previously. Even if there are just little things that I might do some days, such as lighting the candle before I do my practice, selecting a vision card and pausing at odd moments through the day, these small actions are very beneficial and enable me to be not so hard on myself.  I am steadily reviewing the videos but not rushing this process as it takes time for these practices to be understood and appreciated.  Having the ability to watch the sessions repeatedly is tremendously helpful in embedding the learning.   I am enjoying the process of this learning, knowing that I can approach this in a relaxed way and pick out a different session each week or so to review and practice.  I have appreciated the structure of this course being over 3 weeks, where we were able to practice the learning from each session in-between.   It has avoided feelings of being overwhelmed with the amount of content and therefore not really taking anything in because I don't know where to start. There is much more for me to do with the practice that we have been introduced to and this will take some time and it will require some courage and exploration outside my comfort zone, but that is ok.  I know that I can seek help with this as and when I need to.

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.

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.

Dru Yoga teacher, Aberdeen

I was really delighted to be the recipient of the most wonderful Ayurveda massage while staying at the Lodge. I had travelled for hours from the north-east of Scotland, so my body was tired and I felt very ungrounded. Sandra gave me the most nurturing massage, which allowed me to rest very deeply and to sleep soundly afterwards. It was a little bit of heaven given by a very caring and attentive therapist. The room and the towels were warm and cosy and the smell of the oils divine. I felt very balanced and peaceful the next day. Thank you.

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

The Dru yoga teacher training is so much more than learning how to teach yoga! Is is an entire personal development system that helps you find peace in yourself and in a crazy and chaotic world. Love yourself enough to do it!

Keith was such an inspiration with his delicious dishes and I felt very nourished by our shared meal. I especially enjoyed the creamed carrots and will definitely be making it for my family. I was also reminded that it's not just about the cooking and that putting love and intent into it is what makes a real difference.

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 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!

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.

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.

Reflexologist, Axminster, Devon, UK

I liked the gradual building of positions into a sequence, so that you felt you had mastered each position before it became a sequence, which was very relaxing and confidence building.The workshop overall was friendly and welcoming, whatever level you are, whether you are a beginner or teacher. I was able to achieve positions I previously hadn't been able to because of the slow, precise instruction.

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.

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.

Dru Yoga Teacher

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.

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.

Susan Hardwick

Dru Teacher, Nottingham

The course has helped me to understand the ‘nuts and bolts’ of how Dru yoga works. I feel that it has been great for self-development and identification. It has help me progress in future learning and further development. I also feel the course has inspired my teaching by bringing in more koshic awareness.
