Welcome to the Dru Professional Network (DPN) - the professional body for qualified Dru Yoga and Dru Meditation teachers and also student teachers who have passed their interim assessment and successfully completed lesson plans. You can also join the DPN as an Associate member if you have graduated but are not teaching.
What is the DPN
Our Dru teacher training programs offer a high standard of teaching and it is important to Dru that these standards are maintained by all Dru teachers.
So you need to be a member of the DPN if you are:
- teaching Dru Yoga classes in the community or in the workplace,
- are a Dru yoga therapist offering 1-to-1 sessions,
- are a Dru Meditation teacher.
The Dru Professional Network is here to support you and also to ensure you have access to opportunities to keep up-to-date with developments in teaching practice, including safety, and to provide opportunities for further development in a variety of fields, such as pre-natal, back care, meditation, ayurveda and much more.

Discovering the love inside is amazing, discovering how to help others to discover that love inside themselves is stunning.
Deepen your personal practice
Dru also wants to offer you the opportunities to deepen your personal practice, so that you also progress on your own journey with increasing confidence. Of course, that also means you can offer your classes more.
It's a win-win!
