Like most professional bodies, the DPN has a Code of Professional Conduct that acts as a guide for teachers and health coaches in their interactions with clients and outlines DPN policies you need to know about. It covers issues such as your responsibilities as a teacher or health coach, advertising and website guidelines, professional standards and more.
You can read the Codes of Professional Conduct via the links below.
It’s important to read it before you tick that you agree at the time of joining the DPN. If you have any queries about the Code of Professional Conduct, please contact the DPN Member Services team.
Please take time to read these important guidelines for Dru Yoga teachers, Dru Meditation teachers and Ayurveda Health Coaches.
The 'Find a Teacher' service is a complimentary service for DPN members. Here’s how it works: about a month after you join we will send you a link to create your Dru Web Page and advertise your classes/clinics. When you fill in your DPN application form, you give us the contact details you are happy for us to provide to people inquiring about Dru teachers or health coaches in their area.
You can choose to provide the postcode where you teach or hold your clinics, a telephone contact, an email address and your website address as well as a space where you can describe what you offer in more detail - this is called "Locale and info" and you need to update that yourself online. We will only provide details that we have your permission to give out, in order to protect your privacy.
Full members are eligible to have a listing in the 'Find a Teacher' or 'Find a Health Coach' feature on the druyoga.com website. If your details change, you can update them yourself when you log in to your account by clicking "EDIT" and choosing 'Find a Teacher' or 'Find a Health Coach'. If this is difficult for you to do, please let us know and we can update your details for you. Please help us keep the information current so that we provide a good service to your potential students.
