ABOUT THE DPN
Your Dru Professional Network (DPN) is standing behind you and your qualification.
Welcome to the professional body for Dru teachers—keeping you up-to-date with all the latest developments.
It’s the pathway to higher learning, qualifications, professional development and a vibrant interactive worldwide community.
In Dru, the major passion we all share is our love for yoga, meditation and Ayurveda. It is through these practices that we want to help people find a healthier and more empowered way of living.
You can now pursue well recognised accredited Dru qualifications in Yoga Therapy, Ayurveda Health Coaching, as well as different applications of Yoga and Meditation.
To ensure your students, clients and professional bodies are aware of your learning background and professional status your DPN membership type will inform them. Refer to the table below.
Or contact the Dru Australasia office to confirm the correct use of these different titles/appellations. They are world wide in their application and harmonise with standards used by other bodies internationally.
We are here to support you and also to ensure you have access to opportunities to keep up-to-date with developments in your chosen field.
We also want to offer you opportunities to deepen your own personal practice, which enables you to progress with increasing confidence and offer even more to your yoga students.
It's a win-win!
