Lead sessions that truly make a difference for your clients!

The DROM Practitioner Certification is designed to inspire Recreation professionals to deliver a dynamic and powerful practice to your participants. DROM is a unique combination of drumming (the DRUM) and meditation (the OM) to energize, relieve stress, bring clarity and calm – all while having FUN drumming on an exercise ball or tables and chairs.


Dive into the world of DRŌM,
a program designed for everyone, regardless of age or ability!

There is no wrong way and the only rule is, you must have FUN!  Everyone deserves the opportunity to move their body and find joy in the moment.  Creating a safe and positive space is what we do, and together, we can change lives.  Let's share the power of movement and mindfulness for all!

There are endless benefits to DRŌM

"DROM is a powerful holistic TR intervention that targets all domains, and can be utilized across diverse settings. The DROM Practitioner Training Certification is an excellent addition to the TR training landscape and I encourage interested Recreation Therapy students to add this training to their professional toolbox."

I enjoyed the modules and I am impressed at how DROM engages the entire being and this is why I decided to sign up. Thank you Val for the encouragement, and also Amanda for the support. Keep up the fantastic work!!


DROM journey is a favourite - even when just using it as a demo for staff to explain a bit about the program, the response is "can we do this every day!"


Participants get so involved with Drom that they forget that they are exercising.

Bring something new, engaging & exciting to your participants!
