Advanced Practitioner Diploma - Online and in person in Scotland 2023
Dru Yoga as you've never experienced it before.
How is it that Dru is so very, very effective in transforming emotions, shaping your mind to acheive your goals, healing your body..., and well, the list is impressive, isn't it?
This course shows you how. In depth. And with such remarkable clarity that your students and friends will be wondering how your teaching has suddenly become so transformative.
You'll travel along a magical journey of healing and fulfillment, working systematically through each kosha: in your physical body, your pranic field, your emotions, your knowings/attitudes, and eventually in the core life goals that inspire your journey through life. Within each kosha, the course takes you sequentially through the chakras, showing you yoga's main techniques for transforming these vital parts of your consciousness.
The Advanced Practitioner Diploma is the recommended next step for yoga graduates or senior students who want to be a more confident teacher, able to brilliantly share yoga's rich tradition of subtle energy and the holistic mind, based on the chakras and kosha system. It gives you two years' of CPD.
You're probably already familiar with the idea that the chakras are the parts of your mind that control the ways you relate to your world - abundance, relationships, empowerment, giving, the awareness of dharma and your life goals. But these are just words. This course enables you to explore these as living experiences, giving you yoga's techniques to master them at every level.
This course is open to Dru yoga teachers and senior students of the Dru Yoga teacher training course.
Read on for more details, and we are so looking forward to helping you lift your yoga and your life to magnificent new heights!
This course is in blended format: in-person in Scotland and online
You'll have an incredible experience whether you choose to do it in person or online in the comfort of your home. Read on!

Master an inner world of vivid transformational potential
An in-depth exploration of asana modification and the physical level
As you are aware each posture has an essence, an inner transformative power waiting to be discovered. During this session we will explore how to finely attune modifications to the needs of the individual, in doing this, we will discover keys to help us embrace the essence of every posture. We will then go on to explore the physical level, working through the chakras from base to top.
Sessions 2 - 3
Discovering your pranic body
We work through the chakras from base to top at the pranic layer. You’ll learn how to work with specific postures and sequences to strengthen or balance each chakra. We’ll explore how these postures and sequences affect your subtle energy, with remarkable exercises for expanding your capacity to master your subtle energy.
Sessions 4 - 5
Discovering the power of the motivational kosha
Working again through the chakras from base to top, we focus on the emotive layer, and how we can use the postures and sequences already previously explored at these more subtle levels. You'll learn how yoga techniques enable you to revolutionise your emotional landscape, and how to help your students (and friends and colleagues!) do the same. You'll also learn how each chakra is the part of our mind that controls crucial aspects of life (abundance/vitality, relating, achieving goals, building harmony, knowing the right thing to do, discerning your role in life, achieving unity).
Sessions 6 - 7
Harnessing the 'body of creation' - the vijnanamaya kosha
Exploring the chakras at an even more refined level, from base to top, we now reach the culmination of yoga's potential for designing every aspect of your life. This is the realm where you can effortlessly transform old habits and past conditioning, where you can reconfigure your heart and mind towards the success that is natively yours.

It has taught me to listen to my own body and the voice inside me that knows exactly what I should say and do. By taking the course, I know that my life will be full of abundance - I have it all inside. I feel I can connect to my pupils on a different level and I am able to help them on their life journey.
Taking part in the course has added Kosha awareness and improved my language to explain and explore yoga. It has deepened my spiritual awareness and provided me with tools to develop my skills with healing.
The course has developed my knowledge of the koshas and has given me a practical step by step method for incorporating this into my practice (which has changed phenomenally)!
