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


Dru Meditation foundation course

Thinking of joining the Dru Meditation teacher training course, but want to try it out first?  Come and explore Dru Meditation in more depth on this Dru Meditation foundation course in Snowdonia.

The Dru Meditation course

On the Dru Meditation course you will learn a holistic process of meditation, from its most physical techniques to the most subtle awareness of your own energy.  You will explore different styles of meditation through your own practice will find real inner peace. You’ll explore movement to prepare for meditation as well as the breathing and relaxation techniques that are an important preparation for sitting. You will also learn the art of teaching meditation to others, and guiding them through that same process.  This is more than just a course – it is also a powerful transformational journey. It provides you with the tools to examine and transform ways of being that you find unhelpful so that you can transform them and engage with your life in a positive and successful way.

Amongst other things, you will learn:

  • Meditations for awakening each kosha
  • A deeper understanding of subtle energy
  • Dru prana kriyas
  • Pranayama to enhance meditation practice
  • Mudras for meditation, health and emotional wellbeing
  • Structuring and planning meditation classes
  • Meditative prayer and contemplation techniques
  • Chanting/singing and mantra meditation
  • Meditation for healing the body and the earth
  • Meditation in the workplace
  • Concentration techniques to develop your focus for successful meditation

‘Dru Meditation helps me calm my thoughts and navigate my life.’ Raj, yoga teacher

'I find Dru meditation really helps to bring balance in myself in this hurly burly world. It is a wonderful tool to take out and share with others.’ Judith, remedial therapist, Abergavenny

How do I prepare to come?

We encourage you to have attended two Dru Meditation retreats before the Meditation course. It helps if you are familiar with some of the basic Dru Yoga and Meditation techniques taught on those retreats, and helps us move the whole group ahead at the same pace. These include:
  • Working knowledge of Energy Block Release 1, 2 & 3 and other Dru Yoga sequences
  • Experience of the Prana Kriya techniques
  • Good knowledge of the Vertical Alignment, Blue Mist and other Dru techniques
  • An established meditation practice
  • Knowledge of the chakras and subtle energy systems

Course structure

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 *

Course Tuition

2 x payments of £305 

Residential Fees

£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.

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.
