Meditation Foundation Course (Snowdonia) starts Nov 2018 or Jan 2019
What is Dru Meditation?
Dru Meditation is about developing techniques and practices that will help you to remain calm and focused whilst navigating the challenges of life. It will help you discover a mindful awareness, or a still point within, by exploring the science of meditation. This is done uniquely in Dru Meditation, by focusing on the different levels, or koshas, through which we experience the world, taking the awareness from the physical through to the deepest layer of our being.
‘Dru Meditation enables you to bring your practice to the next level, leaves you feeling light and gives you a way forward.’
Karan, Dru Yoga teacher, Cheltenham

This course consists of two five-day modules. Modules run from Thursday evening to Tuesday after lunch. The course is residential, held in the beautiful location of Snowdonia Mountain Lodge in North Wales. This is the dedicated Dru Yoga Centre, a beautiful venue which contributes to the process of meditation. Time in nature forms an important part of our meditation experience, and the stunning mountains and fresh air bring an extra sense of stillness!
What if I miss a module?
While there is some flexibility around the course (if you miss a module in Wales you can catch up in London, the Midlands or Scotland)
What does it cost?
There is a one-off, non-refundable Registration Fee of £150 *
2 x payments of £305
£300 per module which includes accommodation, all meals and refreshments during breaks. There is a supplementary charge for a single room of £150 per module.
** On some occasions we may suggest that you do some more preparation before joining the course, or that another stream of Dru would better serve you. If that happens your deposit is fully refundable.
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.
