"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.
WAY OF THE PEACEFUL WARRIOR
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 and February The Peaceful Warriors will be collaborating with Jeanne Welsh and two orphanage’s Jodie O'Shea House, Stella’s Child. Offering a 6 Day / 50HR Immersion & TT into Yoga and Mindfulness for Children and Youth.

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.

The Peaceful Warriors training exceeded my expectations to say the least! In addition to learning about the Asana practice and the physical aspects of Yoga, the training complements your learning with so much more: Anatomy, meditation, breathing, the history and the philosophy of Yoga, Nutrition, Ayurveda, etc, putting the yoga practice and lifestyle into a much more wholistic context. Every class I attended brought me with so much understanding of not only yoga but also who I am. I felt that I was learning and expanding as a person, which is essential if you would like to take your practice to share with other students. Bente and Maria as the main teachers of the YTT are fully dedicated, inspiring and deeply knowledgeable. Their teaching methods complement one another which exposes the students to various ways of teaching from day one. They are also available to answer any question at all points of the training. The guest teachers are also amazing experts and add tremendous value to the learning. Bente and Maria eased the group into the idea of teaching, starting with peer-teaching, then small groups before you can confidently stand and teach the whole class. The space where we practiced was beautiful, overlooking the rice fields of Bali and waking up to the sunrise before practice was just priceless. The teachers facilitated the group dynamic and created such a strong team spirit throughout the journey. That is why I highly recommend this YTT without any hesitation
This unforgettable adventure peaceful yoga warrior comes to end for me. I feel very grateful. Bente and Maria are amazing teachers with a lot of knowlegde and know how. Always supportive, here at everytime to answer questions or anything else. Be sure they will do our possible to make you feel at ease during this month. The others teachers are also great and super talentuous. I didn't expect to learn as much. The field of this ytt is very large and it's something I appreciate (ayurveda, nutrition...).. The shala opens towards the rice fields is the perfect place to practice and the monday breakfast a paradise for food lover. It's for me an unforgettable human experience I recommend to everyone who loves yoga.
This teacher training exceeded all my expectations. First and foremost the teachers are excellent. They are so so encouraging, supportive and inspiring. The wide range of knowledge that I gained was exceptional. The classes are really varied, exciting and enjoyable. I was introduced to a wide range of subjects, including Ayurveda and nutrition. I have a much more complete vision of who I am and who I want to be as a teacher and have been set up perfectly to now go away and really delve into the areas that interest me personally. This journey was about so much more than yoga, the friends you will make and the personal development that you go through is too amazing to put into words. I really can't recommend this enough.
