Having the opportunity to be in touch with the gratitude within and the abundance in all of us.
I enjoyed trying different sessions during the day. I feel relaxed and content, open and calm!! Thank you.
I remember reading the course handbook over 2 years ago, thinking and believing I could never do it; not feeling good enough and deep panic and fear about the whole idea of teaching - being in front of people and having the focus on myself. Now I sit here writing this at the end of 2 years, on graduation day, and I say to myself 'you did it!'. You are enough! My head told me I couldn't do it, but my heart said 'yes, you absolutely can'. It has changed my life and I can't recommend the course highly enough! Life is a journey of coming home to yourself, your true and highest Self. Dru Yoga is absolutely helping me to do that.
I enjoyed the challenging yoga moves with Padma before and after lunch. It was a beautiful day for me - an opportunity to take care of my wellbeing and remind myself of good practice that I can do at home, with kindness to myself.
What I'll take from today's yoga postgrad workshop:- My favourite part was the Salutation to the 4 Directions. I love doing and teaching this already, but really enjoyed using colour and affirmations within the sequence.
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 :).
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.
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 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.
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.
A very heart-based workshop - I feel full of gratitude, happiness, wonder and wisdom
Love DRU and that's why I am doing my Teacher training with them. I am truly enjoying the journey inwards so I can be a better person on the outside.
I enjoyed everything about this workshop. Nice to be on the receiving end. Padma's introduction to the koshas. The very interesting technique for the diaphragm and diaphragmatic breathing. The pear tree partner work and flowing individual sequence.
I can feel myself changing as a person. I feel more confident and more loving. I have taken on a position of increased responsibility at work and have found the postures have increased my confidence. My patients tell me I am nicer.
Some of the kindest, most inspiring people I have ever come across. I am leaving with a whole new family unit and support network.
I’ve never felt so happy in my whole life.
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.
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.
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.
A Dru workshop is always a joy and a treat. Total rejuvenation in a bite sized piece!
Dru Ayurveda & Yoga workshop:- A thoroughly enjoyable day, enlightening me to how I can work on my health and happiness with minimal effort - great for a kapha type!
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.
I not only feel empowered to teach but also empowered to be me.
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 course will transform and enrich your life by opening up a new relationship with your inner Self, your body and your mind. There are hundreds of personal development courses ... and then there's DYTT! This course will help improve so many aspects of your life; physically, mentally, emotionally, at home and at work, in facing whatever challenges come your way.
DYTT comes with outstanding resources in the quantity and qualifty of the teaching, the written workbooks and the online videos and information.
I thoroughly enjoyed the workshop. I felt reconnected and restored. It was an amazing Dru experience.
Thank you for changing my life and empowering to go and change other people’s lives now.
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.
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.
