I had the most fun during my YTT! We covered a broad range of subjects, learning so many different things from anatomy, to philosophy to Ayurveda, so I always felt so enthusiastic to learn more. The teachers were so full of knowledge and the yoga classes were amazing! Everyone was attracted to different parts of the course, so it really gave you a platform to find your passions and then delve deeper into it. I also thought it was great how there was a balance between challenging lectures, with fun workshops like aerial and acroyoga! By having the asana lab, we were teaching each other from day 1 and having bente / Maria / Lala on hand to help, everyone was more than ready to teach by the time the final practical rolled around. Canggu is also the best place for yoga, it's so relaxed and chilled out, with amazing food and beaches- what's not to love!
Going into this training I was sceptical, I loved yoga but wasn’t sure if teaching was really for me but after completing my 200ytt wth the peaceful warriors my mind completely flipped. Delving into every aspect of yoga possible, meeting incredible people and being taught by amazing teachers in not to mention an unreal location, this training was everything you’d ever want plus more! I highly recommend this course for anyone wanting to branch out even just to try something new, you won’t regret it!!
I choose to do my YTT with Peaceful Warriors as I was told ‘they teach from the heart’...and they sure do! The teachers were authentic, the fellow participants were kindred spirits, and I loved the wholistic range of topics from Ayurveda to Breath work. The daily asana practice makes you physically stronger and flexible, all along building your confidence to teach. And then there is the subtle shift too, making you more open hearted and less fearful. The yoga shala itself is a beautiful open space in Canggu, a lovely little part of Bali that offers great food, with the beach and it’s beautiful sunsets only a short walk away. 200hr YTT is transformative on all levels and I highly recommend Peaceful Warriors as the way to experience this.
The motto: East meets West - perfectly realised in all the lectures! Bente and Maria lead awesome Yoga classes and the Asana Lab is fun and helpful at the same time. A perfect introduction to everything about yoga - from philosophy to business to nutrition. I feel well prepared to go out there and start teaching 😊
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.
It’s difficult to know where to begin in describing the excellence of training I received from the Peaceful Warriors.
I wanted to thank you both again for putting together an amazing month! Upon arriving home; I arranged a meeting with the guys from crossfit and I’ll now be teaching 4 weekly yoga classes at their studio. I also start teaching at the yoga studio, starting next week. All this is something I’ve wanted to do for a while and I feel like it’s a bi-product of you guys putting together an amazing Yoga Teacher Training. So thank you again!
I’m so grateful that I did this journey with The Peaceful Warriors, thank you for all your love, nice words, patience & encouragement, you inspired me so much and planted a seed in my life. I will never forget it!
After a challenging, exhausting and intense Journey, I taught my first yoga class this morning and it just felt amazing. Thank you to all The Peaceful Warriors for being there, you did a great job. Thank you Maria and Bente you are wonderful and Thank you Lauren for your sweetness. Life-changing journey!
I attended one of Maria and Bente’s wonderful Yoga Retreats in Canggu Bali in August 2016.
I’ve been practicing yoga for more than 3 years and have attended a lot of different classes. But the teachers have never made me feel as comfortable, confident and balanced as I did during both Maria & Bente’s classes.
Throughout this week I learned a lot about myself as a person and about my body and my limitations, but most importantly I learned to accept and respect it.
Maria and Bente always take each students level into account and they bring out the best of us. You can feel that they are very passionate and love what they do!
Bente is very sporty and she loves surfing, she has a special calming voice that helped me to relax and to go deeper into my practice and be more aware of the present moment. Maria is a very lively and adventurous girl who will offer you a new fun perspective of yoga both upside down or flying.
I would definitely recommend you to join a training or retreat with The Peaceful Warriors!
