Post Grad Dru Back Care course in London

6 May, 2017

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.

Course objectives

  • 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 first came on the youth course when I was 14 and I’ve just kept coming since then. The youth course has totally shaped who I am, my confidence and my identity, not only through the things we’ve learned but also from the amazing people I’ve met.
