Postgrad Back Care & Wellbeing Course for Social Prescribing - 2020

4 June, 2020

This short course is open to all qualified yoga teachers and will cover common stress management and wellbeing issues including, anxiety, depression and panic attacks. We will share suitable yoga solutions for working with these.

Here at Dru Yoga we have recently expanded our highly successful Post Graduate Back Care course to include a Wellbeing component addressing many of the common health issues encountered by all yoga teachers. The additional component includes designing appropriate yoga sessions for people with stress-related health conditions as well as a broader approach to yoga for health and wellbeing.

This additional component creates a comprehensive package that will enable you to feel completely confident in offering yoga within the scope of social prescribing and in wider healthcare contexts than your general yoga lessons.

Social prescribing

You may have come across social prescribing, and perhaps you’ve already been approached to run yoga classes. You don’t have to be a health worker to do this, but it helps to have the right training and the reassurance that your teaching meets high standards. The Dru backcare and wellbeing course for social prescribing provides just that.


This course gives you 50 CPD points comprised of 40 points for contact hours plus 10 points (a minimum of 10 hours) for personal research.

Course structure

The full course is held over two x 3-day weekend modules - one in June 2020 and the other during the weekend of 19-22 November 2020. You need to complete both modules to complete the course, as well as complete the after-course studies to receive the certificate.

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.
