ABOUT THE DPN
By joining the Dru Professional Network (DPN) you know that Dru 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.
When we originally created Dru, the major passion we all shared was our love for yoga and meditation. It was through these practices that we initially wanted to help people find a healthier and more empowered way of living. Of course, we recognise these are only two of the many routes to achieving a more fulfilling existence.
Well recognised accredited Dru qualifications can now be pursued in the domains of Yoga Therapy, Ayurveda Health Coaching, as well as different applications of Yoga and Meditation.
Students, clients, and professional bodies can readily confirm the learning background and professional status of an individual they wish to engage by referring to the table opposite.
The Dru Office can be contacted to confirm the correct use of these 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.
