At Dru we're passionate about positive health and wellbeing. With yoga and meditation at our core, we care deeply about nutrition, remedies and relieving the stresses of everyday living.
Dru Yoga is at the heart of what we do here at Dru.
Our aim has always been to promote a positive, healthier and more peaceful existence for adults and children alike, giving back to the community by channelling resources into good causes.
The major passion we share is our love for yoga and meditation. It is through these media that we initially wanted to inspire the world and the community around us to find a healthier, happier, more empowered way of living. Of course we recognise these are only two of the many routes to achieving a more fulfilling existence. However they remain at the very core of what we do here at Dru.
BODY & MIND
When we originally set up Dru, the major passion we all shared was our love for yoga and meditation. It was through these practices that we initially wanted to help the world and community around us find a healthier, happier, more empowered way of living.
Of course, we recognise these are only two of the many routes to achieving a more fulfilling existence. However, they remain at the very core of what we do here at Dru. We call these aspects Dru Body & Mind.
With its foundations set firmly in ancient yogic tradition and its emphasis on soft, flowing movements, Dru Yoga can help increase energy levels, ease back pain, and wash away stress.
Dru Dance is a more energetic, stress-busting form of Dru Yoga that blends the benefits of yoga and dance.
If you’re feeling agitated, Dru Meditation will bring you calmness. If you’re feeling exhausted, it will give you energy. If you’re feeling anxious, it will bring you peace.
Tired of trying to juggle worktime, family time and YOU time? Here at Dru we believe that worklife balance is about smart working and giving time and energy to those things that you love and value.
Learn to prioritise, manage time, de-stress quickly and, above all, learn to step back from what’s happening around you and make clear decisions from a point of inner calm. It‘s all part of the tried and tested Dru package.

HEALTH & NUTRITION
There are many ways to gain a healthier, more fulfilling lifestyle. Yoga and meditation are a good start. Equally important is how fully we nourish ourselves, from the food and drink we take in to the time we take out—treating ourselves to therapies that relax the body and retreats that
lift the spirit.

NOT FOR PROFIT PROJECTS
Right from the beginning we wanted to create a worldwide network of empowered individuals working together to make a difference to the world in which we live. We believe that in giving back to the wider community and helping individuals less fortunate than ourselves, we help to create a better, more understanding environment.
Dru Not For Profit Projects is a global range of initiatives into which we channel a percentage of our resources, time and effort. From working with inner city youth and running worklife balance programmes to creating free medical camps in India, de-traumatisation training for NGOs in Nepal and supporting the World Peace Flame, it’s our way of helping to change the world for the better.
We are able to achieve so much at Dru because of the help of our many enthusiastic volunteers—from builders, graphic designers, cooks and students working in our centres around the world to Dru Yoga teachers taking their skills free of charge to deprived inner city areas.
Dru supports a number of charities. The World Peace Flame is an eternal flame which has, to date, inspired millions of people from all over the world to believe that they as individuals do make a difference. The Flame champions values such as inner strength, determination and humility in resolving conflict of any sort. Political and religious leaders alike, people from all walks of life, from every nation, faith and social standing have lit the World Peace Flame and use it as a means of creating bridges and promoting peace.
From setting up medical camps in India and sourcing fair trade goods from Africa to feeding the homeless on our doorstep, our Outreach Projects show Dru at its best. They rely on the team work, determination and the numerous skills of our many volunteers all over the world.
