DPN AUSTRALASIA Professional Codes of Conduct
Dru Yoga Teachers
Dru Meditation Teachers
To continue the high quality of teaching for which Dru is known, it is important to maintain your membership in the DPN.
Dru Yoga/Meditation teachers who are DPN members have permission to use the term Dru Yoga to describe and promote any of their Dru Yoga lessons, seminars and personal consultations. DPN members may use the term Dru Yoga in their company names, website names and email addresses for as long as they are full members of the DPN.
There are 3 essential points in the Code of Conduct for maintaining membership:
- Only successful graduates of the DYTT who pass their final assessment and join the DPN may describe themselves as ‘Registered Dru Yoga teachers’, referred to in this Professional Code of Conduct as ‘Dru Yoga teachers’. As a result, only full members of the DPN who have graduated from the DYTT may call themselves ‘Dru Yoga teachers’.
- In order to remain a member of the DPN, it is a requirement that full members update their skills by attending post-graduate training to a minimum of 30 points over two years. More specific details on what constitutes these 30 points is described here >. In the event of extenuating circumstances or valid reasons for not completing CPD training, please contact DPN member services.
- It is the responsibility of individual Dru Yoga teachers to arrange professional indemnity insurance. The DPN has arranged discounted professional indemnity insurance for its members through Balens Ltd. The DPN will not accept liability for any claims or losses arising from any of the Dru Yoga activities of any of its members.
Any person who is not a member of the DPN needs written permission from Dru (UK) to use the trade-marked term Dru Yoga. This also applies to logos, company names, websites, email addresses, and other marketing.
In summary, to call yourself a Registered Dru Yoga and/or Meditation teacher
- You need to be a member of the DPN
- Keep your CPD up to date
- Have valid insurance
If your DPN membership lapses, you no longer have the right to use the logo of the Dru Professional Network or call yourself a Dru Yoga teacher. This is so that Dru can confidently stand behind your training and know that you are teaching Dru Yoga professionally.
