Do it just for yourself or to extend your skills

As we said right in the beginning, you can choose to do this training to become a teacher or for your own personal or professional development.

About one third of our students do the course for themselves or to further their own career as a

  • therapist
  • human resources leader
  • management trainer

Dru’s deep insights into the body-mind system will make a huge contribution to your life. The deep insights into group energetics that you will learn will enable you to dramatically improve your communication and team building skills.

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!

Dru Yoga - become who you really are.



You will begin to experience new, higher levels of energy resulting from establishing your own daily yoga practice.


Want to deepen your practice?

If you have no intention of teaching, you'll find the Dru Yoga course richly rewarding. You'll be in good company, because many Dru Yoga trainees do the course simply to gain yoga's many benefits just for themselves.


You'll enjoy the teaching skills

And in our experience you'll enjoy the teaching skills sections, which are deliberately taught with you in mind: they are fun, build friendships, and help you deepen your practice.

Moreover, these sessions help you learn the energetics of communication, which will boost your relationships with family, friends, colleagues and in your profession.

I enjoyed everything about this workshop. Nice to be on the receiving end. Padma's introduction to the koshas. The very interesting technique for the diaphragm and diaphragmatic breathing. The pear tree partner work and flowing individual sequence.

Friendships that last

The nature of Dru Yoga teaching creates a warm, supportive group environment. It's very likely that you'll form some of the greatest friendships of your life from amongst the warm and friendly bunch of like-minded people you'll meet.

Give back to the world

Dru Yoga practitioners tend to enjoy giving back to society, finding their own unique ways to add to the world. Run a marathon in Rwanda to support rebuilding efforts? Set up a new charity?  Dru Yoga will help you discover the sky is the limit!

Discover your potential, clarify your purpose

Above all, the Dru Yoga teacher training course helps you become more 'you'. It will help you clear away the stress and busy-ness of modern living, soften old emotional pains and regain the fresh originality of your lifelong dreams.
