Yoga teacher training in the Midlands 2018

12 May, 2018
(Registration open till 12 May)

Whether you plan to teach yoga, want to practise effectively by yourself at home, or would like to enhance your career as a therapist, the Dru Yoga teacher training course is for you! Whatever your yoga ambitions, you’ll find Dru Yoga an empowering, energising and balancing approach to vitality, health and wellbeing.

Course start dates

We are pleased to be able to offer you the option of 3 different intake dates for this course, which will then combine in September 2018 to form one teacher training course. This gives you a number of options, making it easier to join the course when it's convenient to you.

Option one

Weekend one: 17-18 March 2018

Weekend two: 21-22 April 2018

Weekend three: 9 - 10 June 2018

Option two

Weekend one: 12-13 May 2018

Weekend two: 26-27 May 2018

Weekend three: 9 - 10 June 2018

Option three

4-day module (covers weekends 1-3): 2-5 August 2018

The course dates then combine from 8 - 9 September 2018 as below.

Don’t want to teach? That’s OK! You can choose to do this training to become a teacher or for your own personal development. About one third of our students do the course for their own personal growth, knowing that Dru’s deep insights into the body-mind system will make a huge contribution to their lives. Generally, these students find the ‘teacher-training’ aspects of the course very beneficial.

No matter what—you will begin to experience new, higher levels of energy resulting from establishing your own daily yoga practice.  You will also find that you are more relaxed and can cope better with the stresses of everyday life. Above all, this is the start of a wonderful period of in-depth learning, building personal and professional skills, establishing new friendships and an exciting journey of self-discovery! 

Earn as you learn

We’ve tried to make it as easy as possible for you to train as a Dru Yoga teacher. For example, we encourage you to gather informal teaching experience from halfway through the course, after an interim assessment. And from then on, you can easily pay for your course. If you gathered a group of 6 friends together every week, and asked them to pay you £5 each as a student teacher, you would make enough to cover 80-90% of your average monthly payments.

Since 1985 we have trained thousands of Dru Yoga teachers world wide, with many hundreds currently in training. Half our students start to teach before graduation, helping to recoup their costs. 

Course dates

16 x non residential weekends
 - there are 3 opportunities to join this course which has 2 intakes and a Dru Yoga foundation Summer school to fast track for anyone wanting to join the course and covers the first 3 weekends.  The Summer school cost is discounted for existing Teacher Training students who would like to join as a refresher, (please call the Dru Midlands centre for price information)

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 ;-)

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.
