Dru is the power tool I use to clear the debris from my body and mind.

How much CPD do I need?

CPD can be made up from both, 'professional development' and 'personal development' opportunities. See below for examples of these >

 

Dru Yoga teachers

For the first year after your final Dru Yoga teacher training day there is no CPD requirement.

Following this first year, you will need 12 CPD points over a year, with a minimum of 6 points being professional development.  

 

 

Be part of a highly professional network of Dru Yoga & Meditation teachers!

 

There are so many ways to accumulate CPD points; to keep your teaching qualification current and maintain the high standards of Dru Yoga & Dru Meditation.

How do I acquire my CPD points?

You acquire CPD points from attendance at events or doing online courses.  One hour of tuition = 1 CPD point unless otherwise stated.

Professional development may come from attending Dru events that upgrade your skills or include reference to teaching methodology such as posture modification or enhancing the effect on the koshas etc.

Professional and personal development >

Dru Meditation teachers

Dru Meditation CPD follows the same principles as Dru Yoga, except 9 points of CPD are required each year with 6 points being professional development.  Professional development may come from attending Dru events or using online Dru facilities that upgrade your skills, deepen your practice or help you become a better teacher.
