Dru Event 2016
A few weeks ago, we celebrated 38 years of Dru. Since our humble beginnings at Bangor University in the 1970s, Dru has now expanded to become an international team of people working to transform the world by giving people the tools to transform themselves.
Enjoy this exciting glimpse into a memorable and heart enriching few days spent in the mountains of North Wales. Every year we celebrate Dru's anniversary with plenaries & workshops, meditation, walking, singing, friendship and fun!
One of our main events is our awards evening - congratulations to all the 2016 prizewinners (see below). Do contact us if you’d like to volunteer with Dru this year, and become part of our international team. To see what we're up to visit druyoga.com and see what events, classes, courses and volunteer opportunities await you!
We look forward to seeing you soon!
The Dru Team.

Your contribution has made possible everything that is visible today on our courses around the world. You update websites and edit videos. You teach our yoga and meditation courses. You help maintain our centres and you assist with catering and a host of other unseen acts of kindness. By offering your time and your skills, you make it possible for us to reach out and touch so many more lives.
