ABOUT THE DPN
By joining the Dru Professional Network (DPN) you know that Dru is standing behind you and your qualifications.
When we originally created Dru, the major passion we all shared was our love for yoga and meditation. Of course, we recognise these are only two of the many routes to achieving a more fulfilling existence.
Full Membership - currently £65 per year, renewable every year. Comes with full range of benefits eg discounted online studio membership including the Dru Star Lounge, reduced prices on Dru events and reduced price for specialised yoga insurance with Balens. Full membership requires commitment to accrue 30 CPD points over a two-year period.
Associate Membership - currently £45 per year, renewable every year. Comes with full range of benefits similar to the full membership, but no CPD requirement is necessary, nor do you qualify for the reduced yoga insurance.
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 worldwide in their application and harmonise with standards used by other bodies internationally.
The Dru Professional Network (DPN) helps sustain the connection and skilling of all those who have qualifications to teach, care for or coach others using Dru techniques or learning.
The Network assists its members to continue to learn and grow by being a source of communal advice and materials. It also functions as the authority for registering and confirming the bona fides of graduates that market themselves as professional Dru practitioners.
These benefits apply to the following DPN membership categories:
Dru Yoga Teacher, Dru Meditation Teacher, Dru Yoga Associate,
Dru Ayurveda Health Coach, Dru Yoga Therapist
Free and Discounted Online Studio Membership
As a course trainee you've enjoyed free access to the Online Studio, which ends with your graduation. However, when you join the DPN you can renew your online studio membership as a full member or an associate member at the substantially discounted rate.
- Pay monthly - you get 4 months of free membership, so you don't pay until month 5. From month 5 your monthly fee is discounted by 30% (£6.99 per month instead of £9.99). Together this is worth £64 in the first year of membership, which virtually covers your first year's DPN membership fee!
- Pay yearly - you get 4 months of free membership and then you pay £75 for the next 12 months.
- Simply join the DPN and then renew your online studio membership here.
Our graduates really enjoy being part of a supportive network that is committed to helping you become a successful teacher, health coach or therapist.
