Why choose the path of the Peaceful Warriors?
The online course can be completed as a stand-alone course, and/or as great preparation for the in-person experience here with us in Bali.
It is entirely up to you how you choose to approach the online program, you could choose to study 100% online or only a few modules, or you could choose to simply see the online program as a permanent record of the entire YTT program, which you are free to (re)visit at any time. Regardless of your approach in addition to the online program, you are free to come to do the entire YTT in person here with us in Bali.
The online program is a great way to prepare for the in-person training. Plus having access to the online material means that you will always have access to the recordings of all the lectures, workshops and classes etc. long after your in-person experience has finished which is a great advantage over doing only the in-person training.
Our programs are continuously evolving and you will have access to any new content/updates added in the future and you can study at your own pace, from the comfort of your home.
Our online training includes all the key elements of an in-person training, such as community, live interaction and teamwork.
The online program is a combination of live and pre-recorded material; lectures, classes, practices, workshops, asana and teaching clinics, as well as of course your own teaching practice and self study.
The online program has a flexible and modular structure, allowing you to go entirely at your own pace or to make it more of an intensive experience by following the day to day program as provided by us, and/or design your own online/in-person experience.
We offer one of the most affordable Yoga Alliance Accredited YTTs offered worldwide, we believe in providing great value for money.
We love yoga and we go above and beyond to share our passion with you, we pour our heart and souls and all that we know into offering you a comprehensive training and a truly unique, life changing experience.
We combine Tradition and Evolution in a creative and intelligent blend of traditional Hatha Yoga with contemporary Vinyasa Flow, bridging eastern and western knowledge, philosophy and teachings, providing you with a balance between a long established, holistic and grounding practice side by side with a dynamic creative and playful contemporary flow style.
Our instructors are all passionate, expert practitioners and E-RYT teachers, with an advanced level of knowledge and expertise.
We believe every Yogi is unique; every Yogi has his or her own voice, practice and (teaching) style. We strive to provide the opportunity, tools, guidance and encouragement for you to experiment and to find your voice as a teacher and a yogi.
We believe in yoga as a life journey of (self)-awareness and personal transformation. A deeply transformative ‘tool’ that brings about real change and growth in your life. Through this training we strive to offer you a deeply life changing experience and to find the support you need to leave the training not only a newly certified yoga teacher but with a new way of looking at the world – evolve and connect with the best expression of yourself.application form

You have the following program options and flexibility to complete your 200HR Yoga Teacher Training
There are 4 different ways of taking part;
You can choose to do the training 100% online as an Intensive by following our day-to-day program of live and prerecorded contents over the course of February 2021 (i.e. 1 February - 2 March, 2021). This will require a commitment of 4-7 hours daily Monday through Friday and 2-3 hours on Saturdays. The live calls and classes will be at fixed times and a timetable will be shared with you prior. We aim to schedule the live classes according to different time zones, to make sure everyone gets the opportunity to join in on some of the live contents. If you miss a live lecture/class, not to worry, it will be recorded and can be watched on your own time.
The pre-recorded contents, you’ll be able to work through in your own time. But there will be a schedule so you know which pre-recorded classes, lectures, assignments and practice teachings to do each day.
You can choose to do the training 100% Online at your own pace. If you’d prefer to take your time and go at your own pace then you have until 31 December 2021 to complete all the contents (if you’d like the Yoga Alliance (YA) accredited certification at the end, if you don’t care about the YA certification you can take all the time you need). In addition to the prerecorded contents, you can watch all the recordings of the live calls, classes and lectures in your own time so you won’t miss out on any of the contents. You will still have a specific order to work through the content so that the course is congruent and progressive.
You can choose to do "50% Online and 50% In-Person". If you are not in a rush to complete this training you can choose to follow a modular structure; completing part online and part in-person here with us in Bali. In consultation with us we will personalise your experience, and guide you in what to study online and what to leave for an in-person experience. If you choose this option you can do the online part entirely in your own time and then come join us for an In-Person experience in Bali in 2021, when the Indonesian borders reopen to international tourism. With this option it does not have to be exactly 50/50, we are always more than happy to help you tailor the online experience to your needs and availability.
You can choose to follow the course online (as described in option A or B) and also do the full in-person training here with us in Bali in 2021, when the Indonesian borders are open to international tourism again. With the online course you will have unlimited, lifetime access to the course and you will be able to revisit it at any time, and/or use it as preparation for the in-person training with us in Bali.

This was by far one of the best decisions I have ever made in my life. The Peaceful Warriors have shared their love, light, and knowledge with so many people in Bali and now they have offered it online for students?! AMAZING! So many downs had occurred for so many people in this world, but the training was only one of the highlights of my 2020 year. I am proud to say that I am a Peaceful Warrior graduate and I cannot wait to go back to their training to attend the 300HR YTT (hopefully they'll release soon)! Every teacher that is part of the Peaceful Warrior family brings such phenomenal knowledge to the table to where you truly get many bits and pieces of yoga to help guide you to be your own teacher. I received clarity and growth from things that I never knew that I would grow from, to become a better student and now a better teacher for my future students. Thank you so much to all of the Peaceful Warriors (students, graduates, and teachers) for all that you do for your community and for spreading the teachings of Yoga for all to learn!
You guys provided such a well rounded beautiful course. The idea of an online YTT scared me at the beginning but I must say that it has absolutely exceeded all expectations. You have delivered such high quality material, your choice of teachers has been immaculate and the general structure of the course was truly on point. Your knowledge and passion to share yoga are so inspiring and even though I didn’t do the training with teaching in mind, I will for sure end up teaching one way or the other. Its so inspiring to see such powerful female leadership, and Im excited to follow your lead. I’m so very grateful for this opportunity.
I’d like to take the time to extend my deepest gratitude to ALL of the members of The Peaceful Warrior team. I am feeling extremely blessed to have worked with such a dedicated, knowledgeable, and passionate group of people. Bente and Maria, I can tell how much heart and soul went into creating this teacher training and I have learned SO much from you both. You’ve created an incredibly holistic program and selected amazing teachers who each have their own unique and important set of skills to bring to the table. Bernd opened my eyes to a whole new side of yoga and truly helped me to find a better balance in my practice (I will miss his stories and his dogs!). Sean’s knowledge helped me gain an important understanding of the human body, creating a stronger foundation in my own practice and more confidence in my alignment cues. I loved and appreciated the variety and rotation of teachers, from Magdalena’s fiery sequences to Karin and Jessica’s calming approaches. Learning from Lauren, Avi, Jeanne and Zoe were all inspiring as well and helped open new curiosities for me on my path of learning.
I strongly believe that the Universe leads us to where we are meant to go and this was certainly a serendipitous stretch of my journey. I feel prepared and well-rounded in my foundational knowledge, but most of all I feel excited to move forward with my dream of being a yoga teacher. Thank you for recognizing and helping to stoke the passion for this work inside of me.

It forced me dive into myself & is helping me to begin to establish a relationship between my physical body, my mind and my soul.
Some days I thought were “rock bottom” ... but it only made me realize that was part of the journey, the journey of trusting myself of becoming my own “hero” the person who I’ve always been but have never really trusted! All these “things” I see as signs from the universe telling myself to trust ME to believe in ME and to hear ME ... to L O V E me as I am and accept all the little “flaws” that comes with being a human and all.
But I couldn’t have done it without all these beautiful souls, these magical humans who were always there to listen to just “one more story” of why “I’m crying right now” or to give me some ibuprofen when my muscles ached or to pay for a cab ride back to the hotel when I didn’t have any more cash on me and didn’t sweat it cause “it happens to all of us” or that person who believed in me more than I did when I finally landed that “tri-pod headstand” and says “I told you, you could do it!” Or that person who held my hand while I got stitches for the first time & for that I’m so thankful to you all ♥︎ .
if that weren’t enough the universe blessed me with some great teachers. So knowledgeable while being so understanding when we were faced with feeling frustrated. Teachers Who would stay 15 (or more) minutes after a two hour lecture or practice making sure they answered all our questions ... & to our yoga philosophy teachers who knew some subjects were hard & uncomfortable and gave us time to absorve it all and were understanding if we (me) shed a tear and needed a moment to ourselves. Thank you @thepeacefulwarriorsyoga for this journey I couldn’t be more grateful!

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.

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.
