Welcome to the 
Dru Professional Network

The professional body for Dru Yoga Teachers, Dru Meditation Teachers, Dru Yoga Therapists and Ayurveda Health Coaches.

ABOUT THE DPN

By joining the Dru Professional Network (DPN) you know that Dru is standing behind you and your qualification.

When we originally created Dru, the major passion we all shared was our love for yoga and meditation. It was through these practices that we initially wanted to help people find a healthier and more empowered way of living. Of course, we recognise these are only two of the many routes to achieving a more fulfilling existence. 

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 world wide 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 bone fides of graduates that market themselves as professional Dru Practitioners.
