Course structure

The Dru Kids and Teens teacher training is an interactive online training course designed to train you to confidently teach Dru Yoga to children and young adults, from 3 to18 years old.

The course spans over three weekend days (Saturday or Sunday) over 4 weeks. There will be some sessions for you to watch in your own time, and we will be live for the three mornings with practical interactive sessions on Zoom.
