The Dru Professional Network is an excellent resource of materials and information ranging from marketing tips through to teaching advice. 

Why is it important to be a member of the DPN

To continue the high quality of teaching for which Dru is known, it is important to maintain your membership of the DPN.  

Dru Yoga teachers have permission to use the term Dru Yoga to describe and promote any of their Dru Yoga lessons, seminars and personal consultations.  These full 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.  If these members use the term Dru Yoga, they must use the ‘Dru Yoga registered teacher’ logo and no other Dru logos for these purposes.

Registered Dru Yoga teacher logoThere are 3 essential points in the Code of Conduct for maintaining membership:

  1. 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’.
  2. 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.
  3. It is the responsibility of individual Dru Yoga teachers to arrange professional indemnity insurance.  Where possible the DPN will endeavour to arrange competitive pricing deals with different insurance providers for its members.  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 (graduating from the DYTT) 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 teacher

  1. You need to be a member of the DPN
  2. Keep your CPD up to date
  3. 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 accurately and professionally.

I'm a student, can I become a member of the DPN

You can be a student member of the DPN, once you have passed a mid-way assessment and are up to date with all your assignments.  You are only able to remain a student teacher for one year after completing your Dru Yoga teacher training. Student teachers of Dru Yoga have their own Professional Code of Conduct.
