I don't think I can meditate. Is it for me?
We teach you how to meditate easily. We will do yoga to settle you body, breath work to settle you mind and also teach you how to sit so you can meditate comfortably.
I’m a yoga beginner... Is that OK?
Absolutely yes! All of the retreats in this brochure are suitable for beginners as well as for experienced yoga and meditation practitioners.
I’m not flexible. Can I do Dru Yoga?
Dru is for everyone and you’ll be surprised how quickly your body becomes more flexible when you practise regularly. Always listen to your body and don’t overstretch or strain.
I've been to this retreat before - will I benefit by coming again?
Absolutely!!! We carefully craft our timetable to match the needs of the people, the time of the year and - of course - our own delight in exploring meditation's many frontiers. So, most of the time you'll be learning new techniques from one retreat to another, and even when we do repeat a technique you'll discover it in a whole new depth.
What about therapies & mentoring?
From ayurvedic Abhyanga full body massage to foot reflexology—when you enjoy a therapy on one of our retreats, that’s when you really feel the true benefits of the whole Dru experience. You can also book a personal mentoring with one of our expert tutors on topics such as chakra analysis, vedic astrology and much more.
What’s the food like?
Our catering gets rave reviews from our course participants. It’s delicious vegetarian cuisine, tasty and healthy, and complements the courses perfectly. We also cater for vegan and other special diets, such as gluten-free etc. Let us know when you book.
