Speciality Teachers

Avi Basuki
"In this time and age of change, being a teacher is one of the most demanding and at the same time rewarding opportunities that I encountered in my life. It wasn't an easy task at the beginning, especially when you are working with children. It was a big test for me of really coming back to and from the heart, creating a safe space for them and also for their future.
I find it rewarding to be able to share with the children “soft skills” that they may decide to further develop as they grow and which can be a support for them no matter which direction they choose in life"
Avi Basuki

Having trained with Rainbow Kids Yoga and Calm Classrooms, as well as studying with various advanced teachers from the traditional tantric yoga lineage, shamanism and the magic world of sound healing, Avi will bring the unique use of music and sound into this heartfelt training.

ABOUT JEANNE

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. All over the world, there is an accelerated growing need for children to learn life skills that could extend beyond the school walls and promote health and wellness in other areas of their life.

Over the past 10 years, I have been working with children with all types of backgrounds, sharing the gift of yoga. Noticing this growing need for change, I wanted to create a training not just for Yoga Teachers, but for 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. Anyone who wants to invest in themselves in a way that would benefit children for years to come.

When people stop and ask me what I do for a living, I tell them I teach children the skills I never had growing up as a kid Jeanne Welsh

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

Leticia Debas

January 2020

"It has been a journey that I will be forever grateful for!"

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!

"...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.
