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.
What is the DPN
Our Dru teacher training programmes 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.
Find details of DPN membership costs here.
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!
Continuing Professional Development
The way we in Dru (and many professional bodies) ensure these high standards are maintained, is by:
- offering postgraduate courses and workshops
- the Dru Star Lounge (which is included in the Dru Yoga Online Studio membership - if you are a member of the DPN).
- doing refresher training (attending sessions at current teacher training courses)
- being a support tutor on current teacher training courses

We've made recording CPD simpler for you!
Simply book online for a postgrad event, and your teaching skills CPD points will be automatically added to your CPD record. If you book a public Dru workshop online, your personal development CPD points are added. However, as these are not the only way to achieve CPD points, you will still need to send in your CPD record if you use one of the many other ways of accruing CPD points. See the CPD points we have registered for you here (you must be logged in!)
Bonus if you subscribe to the Dru Online Studio
If you subscribe to the Dru Yoga Online Studio, then as a member of the DPN you will also have access to the Dru Star Lounge (at no extra cost) - a valuable resource to support your teaching, post qualification.
There are also many other benefits, including access to promotional material and discounts for the Dru Yoga Online Studio, online courses, Dru products and special DPN rates for many Dru workshops and events.
