Dru Yoga and Walking Holiday
These yoga holidays include three hours of Dru Yoga and Meditation classes daily, as well as guided walks in beautiful Snowdonia National Park or the Anglesey coastline.

The walks will be around 3-4 hours long (including breaks) and will take you to mountains, forests, coastlines and majestic lakes. You’ll also enjoy glorious relaxation sessions and optional therapies to help you to de-stress and re-charge. This holiday is suitable for people of average fitness, and is an ideal introduction to the beauty of North Wales for overseas guests. All weekends are suitable for beginners, while the September course is intermediate - ideal if you've done some yoga before and want slightly stronger walks.

The Bhagavad Gita - the timeless manual for successful living and spiritual realisation - contains a detailed set of instructions on overcoming adversity and reaching your fullest potential.  As the sourcebook of yoga and meditation, it contains the essential wisdom you need to live a fulfilling life. 

The four day retreat in Snowdonia will include study sessions and lectures on the Gita, chanting sessions to help you pronounce the verses, Dru Yoga and meditation classes as well as walks in Snowdonia, weather permitting! You’ll learn how to apply the lessons of the Gita to your own self-development, and ways to introduce this beautiful text into your yoga or meditation classes.

A section of the world’s longest - and oldest - epic poem, the Mahabharata, the Bhagavad Gita is a dialogue between Arjuna and his mentor, Krishna. Arjuna represents each one of us, seeking a more fulfilling and successful life. Krishna represents our inner wisdom, or the still voice of spirit within. Their conversation is the climax of what could be considered one of the world’s greatest dramas, in which two branches of a family are pitted against each other in a struggle between right and might that will determine the fate of the world.

Taking us beyond the cultural and topical content of ancient India, the Bhagavad Gita delivers a universal message relevant for each of us in our lives.  It shows us that the way we deal with our mind and emotions reflects in our thoughts, attitudes and outward conduct and teaches practical methods for dealing with the anger, grief and frustrations that can torment our minds and have affected the minds of human beings since pre-history.

The course will rely upon and cross-reference to material from The Dru Bhagavad Gita and the Bhagavad Gita DVD Series, the main source material.

"Having just been to a brilliant Dru retreat in North Wales I am 'chilled', yet fully charged! The style and quality of presentation is excellent, the content fascinating, the dedication and enthusiasm of the staff without question and the organisation has a 'track record' approaching thirty years. I have been to three Dru conference/retreat events now and can highly recommend them."

Our 'Dreams' Course has been very successful, covering the areas of finance, spirituality, relationships, health and career. Over the last couple of years we’ve been learning the spiritual laws to make every area of our life totally successful and fulfilling. We’ve now opened up this next module on Spirituality, so you don’t need to have attended the other modules to attend. We’d like to warmly invite you to join us!

Spirituality ‘Realise the power you have within you to manifest your dream. No one else can do what you are here to do. So stop making excuses and get on with it.’  Mansukh Patel

The likely hood of the universe being brought about by chance is like the idea of a whirlwind blowing through a scrap yard and creating a Rolls Royce. So learn those laws which make spirituality practical in your life, to further ignite your dreams and make every aspect of your life successful.
