As part of your path to becoming a yoga teacher we invite you to explore the beauty and magic of Bali. A yogic Paradise. Canggu, a laid-back, serene yet vibrant and trendy beach town perched on the southwest coast of Bali. Nestled in between beautiful green terraced rice paddies and black sand beaches Canggu is the bohemian home away from home for yogis, surfers, spiritual seekers, conscious hipsters and healthy foodies. Canggu is the perfect balance of Balinese culture, authenticity and cool comfort. Canggu feels more like a state of mind than an actual place.
We consider Bali part of our yogic path and we structure our course in such a way that you have time to explore this magical place. And as part of the course we offer you the opportunity to see Bali from a yogic point of view, inviting you to experience some of the amazing things that Bali has to offer.
We provide an intimate and supportive learning environment (max. 25 students).
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 in the strength of community and we offer you the opportunity to make deep and lasting connections and friendships. Strangers become family when we are all on the same path!
We offer you the opportunity to Surf while you deepen your yoga practice and become a yoga teacher. Our Shala is only minutes away from the beach and some of the best surf breaks in Bali.
Surf lessons/guiding/packages and board rentals are easily organized. We are pleased to offer the highest level of professional instruction and surf guiding for an affordable price with our preferred surf partners.
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.

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.
