Whatever your yoga ambitions, you’ll find Dru Yoga an empowering, energising and balancing approach to vitality, health and wellbeing.

If you choose to continue with the teacher training course, you can do so smoothly and seamlessly. So, here are the dates for the foundation course, which you will note gives you 3 options for starting.

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.

The course dates then combine from 8 - 9 September 2018 as below for the teacher training course, should you decide to continue on your Dru Yoga journey.

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! 

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.

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.
