Empower Young Minds to be in Touch with Their Inner Being

Empower Young Minds to be the Best They can be

This training is not just for Yoga Teachers. But for anyone who wants to make this world a better place. Parents, Teachers, Educators and Caregivers, anyone who wants to empower young minds to be in touch with their inner being; anyone who wants to empower young minds to be the best they can be. Anyone who wants to teach children to love who they are, Body, Mind & Soul. Invest in yourself in a way that would benefit children for years to come. ❤️

"If a child is to love his or her body, she must know her body. If a child is to love his soul, he must know his soul

Kids are incredibly sensitive when it comes to what they can and can’t do, how they look, how other people perceive them, how they compare to others, even to what they might be able to do too well. Yet, most of this awareness has to do with the external, and kids tend to internalize those external judgments: If I look like this, I must not be worthwhile, or, If my friend said that about me, it must be the way I really am.

Yoga flips this way of perceiving, helping the child to see his or her internal worth first, so that the child’s inner light can radiate outward, transforming the external from the inside out. If kids love their inner selves, their souls, they can also learn to cherish and nurture their bodies.” Jeanne Welsh, Peaceful Warrior | Educational Therapist | Children’s Yoga Teacher | Mindfulness & Wellness Coach.



We at The Peaceful Warriors practice and teach Yoga with a deep conviction that the potential to change the world lives in each of us. Our bodies, minds and souls must be connected in order to create lasting change.

We believe that there is a powerful experience that is much needed to begin a revolution in the way we heal and transform the lives of children and youth.

This November, February and July The Peaceful Warriors will be collaborating with Jeanne Welsh and MTC BALI, a non-profit organization created to enhance the daily lives of children and families affected by physical and mental disabilities. Offering a seven days, 50-hour immersion and teacher training into yoga and mindfulness for children and youth.

Our mission is to help kids thrive in the world regardless of circumstances, and navigate the many challenges they face with a sense of personal power and self-awareness. Therefore, The Peaceful Warriors & Jeanne will be donating a shared 15 percent from the training profits to MTC (Matahari Terbit Center).

Created from my own childhood trauma to give children the tools I never had growing up…  My story begins at Uzenmyethu child care facility, GuGulethu Township, Cape Town, South Africa. In the South African nucleus of crime, poverty, and riots, the Accelerated growing need for the children to learn life skills that could extend beyond the school walls and promote health in other areas of their life.

Jeanne Welsh is a leader in the field of Children’s yoga education. Jeanne champions the efficacy of innovative, evidence-based yoga programs for schools to establish lifelong foundations for student’s fitness, wellness, and productivity. Over the past decade, Jeanne  has worked closely with educators, health professionals, and parents to enrich school communities with yoga tools to more authentically and effectively teach to their students and children. A pioneer of yoga education, Jeanne is also the founder of Wellness for Kids in Cape Town South Africa, a company that creates sustainable yoga programs for Cape Town schools. When not at home in Bali, you can find Jeanne leading trainings and retreats,  empowering educators and to integrate yoga into schools across Europe, Asia, and South Africa. 

Fueled by the success of this whole school yoga and mindfulness implementation program, I have evolved with the intention to reach more schools, more educators, more parents, and more students. Together, we are changing education through the practice of mindfulness and yoga.

My hope is to give children tools to calm down, slow down and feel better when they are troubled. I sure wish I had these tools at my disposal when I was their age. Imagine if all the children around the Earth learned to use these tools during their childhoods. What a change our world would experience within just one generation.

TESTIMONIAL from Sunrise School Bali

The benefits of mindfulness and yoga are unquestionable, Sunrise School Bali undertook Jeanne’s services and training  this year across all areas of our school. As a result, we now have all of our teachers using consistent language and techniques with our students to support them in their emotional, social and behavioural journeys. At Sunrise, we believe all children learn best when they feel safe and supported, so her program has offered us a way to connect with our students on a deeper level. When children feel connected, they can learn. The Mindfulness activity card sets are a wonderful and practical tool for teachers to use in all classes, and at all times during the day. We often hear the children talking about the 'Sound Detectives' and 'The Belly Breath'.

Our teachers have also been through a personal journey, guided by Jeanne, in understanding how important their own well being and care is to their role as teacher. It was interesting for them to discover that the techniques Jeanne has given them for working with children are just as relevant for them as adults.

We highly recommend the services Jeanne provided and her training and tools for both teachers and children. We are very grateful to Jeanne for working with our teachers and allowing them to extend themselves both professionally and personally.

Some nice words from some of our teacher training graduates

"...most incredible group of students"

To put the last month into words is impossible, to put into feelings is impossible and to put into emotions is even more impossible.

When I signed up for my yoga teaching course I genuinely didn’t expect so learn so much about myself, I didn’t expect to open my heart and open my mind as much and sure as hell didn’t expect to open my tear ducts as much.

I think I’m still trying to process, or even being to process the learnings and new ways of thinking. So from here, the learnings & new practices have only began. From here, I’m nervous for a new future and from here all I can say is fuk yes.

Thank you  @thepeacefulwarriorsyoga for this journey. Thank you to the most incredible group of students I got to share this with, and thank you to all my incredible teachers legit you’ve changed my life. 😭 Analu, Sean, Jono, Maria, Bente, Magdalena & Rachel Fearnley.

"...thank you for sharing this journey with me"

It’s official, completed my 200 hour yoga teacher training with  @thepeacefulwarriorsyoga. Without sounding cliché, this journey was life changing. When we think of yoga we often only think of the physical practice, poses, turning oneself into a pretzel! It’s the western way of thinking, and we forget about the connection to the mind and soul. We forget that yoga is also about the breath, meditation, energy systems and the power of what this connection can bring to our lives. I am full of gratitude! I have found a deeper purpose from this journey and I look forward to what lies ahead to help others live a more healthy, and meaningful life.

To all my teachers Bente, Maria, Sean, Rachel, Analu, Magdalena thank you for inspiring me, I have a light inside that is shining brighter then ever! And to my fellow classmates, thank you for sharing this journey with me, for being vulnerable, and for being courageous! I do not believe we came together by chance, but more so to each learn and grow from one another.

"...no words to describe this month"

Be a lamp, a lifeboat, a ladder. Help someone‘s soul heal. Walk out of your house like a shepherd. - Rumi
One week ago, I passed my final exam and became a hatha-vinyasa yoga teacher  @thepeacefulwarriorsyoga in Canggu Bali.
There are no words to describe this month with these amazing loving kind joyful people that will always have a place in my heart and a bed in my home.
It truly was a journey to the depth of my soul. Surrounded by the magic of Bali.
Creating a space where we felt safe to laugh, to cry, to sweat, to grow, to learn, to teach, to love, to share, to connect, to move, to trust, to overcome, to reach out, to dream, to let go, to express, to shine, to BE...
I am grateful beyond words for everyone and every step of this path.
