Why train
with Dru Yoga?

45 years ago a group of university students discovered a shared vision to create a more positive world. Today Dru is an inspired global community committed to giving back to the world.

As a social enterprise, we are dedicated to transforming the world by giving people the tools to transform themselves.

These tools include yoga, meditation and Ayurveda. So for us, yoga isn't just about movement - it's a tool to balance and heal every part of your body and mind.
