Post Grad Dru Back Care course in London
The Dru Back Care course is a 24 hour course at diploma level, which is open to qualified Dru Yoga teachers and teachers from other accredited yoga schools.
How will the course benefit my classes
The course is designed to enhance your teaching skills and enable you to work confidently with students who experience back pain, using therapeutic techniques from Dru Yoga.
The Dru Back Care course is a part of our postgraduate education programme and can be undertaken as a stand-alone module, with an emphasis on the practical application of yoga in a class-based setting. You will study current guidelines for back care in the NHS, current medical management, and potential diagnoses that yoga teachers encounter in their students.
In addition, the course will examine back problems through an understanding of koshas, chakras and prana; how the practice of Dru Yoga benefits the spine; how yoga can be adapted for back problems; and how to approach relaxation as an essential tool.
Participants on this course will be asked to conduct a series of classes for people with back problems and to complete a written reflection of their experience between the first and second weekend. On successful completion of the course, you will receive a certificate.
To give yoga teachers deeper knowledge, skills and confidence when teaching yoga students with back problems in their classes.
To help yoga teachers recognise some of the common imbalances / problems associated with back pain.
To train yoga teachers to safely run effective back care classes.

I not only enjoyed it, I loved it! Thank you. It really helped me to feel my core stability muscles. I'm looking forward training them ;-)
If you want to physically strengthen your body and emotionally enhance your mind, Dru Yoga will give you the tools to take into your daily life and help you cope with the stresses of modern living.
Thank you, this was lovely. It was great to have your teaching in my home! Great production also - good picture, good sound, easy to fast forward and great that I could see what was happening as I fast forwarded so I knew when to stop. I also like the way Dru Online is bringing us more specific subjects like this one, that before we have only seen in the workbooks. Thank you.
