"...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.

"...no words to describe this month"

Be a lamp, a lifeboat, a ladder. Help someone‘s soul heal. Walk out of your house like a shepherd. - Rumi
One week ago, I passed my final exam and became a hatha-vinyasa yoga teacher  @thepeacefulwarriorsyoga in Canggu Bali.
There are no words to describe this month with these amazing loving kind joyful people that will always have a place in my heart and a bed in my home.
It truly was a journey to the depth of my soul. Surrounded by the magic of Bali.
Creating a space where we felt safe to laugh, to cry, to sweat, to grow, to learn, to teach, to love, to share, to connect, to move, to trust, to overcome, to reach out, to dream, to let go, to express, to shine, to BE...
I am grateful beyond words for everyone and every step of this path.

"This was the best decision I have ever made for myself"

Officially a Hatha/Vinyasa registered yoga teacher, with the best teachers from  @thepeacefulwarriorsyoga. Couldn't choose a better place and yogi family to experience this journey with.

Thankful for every single moment I experienced and every single person I met in the past month. This was the best decision I have ever made for myself, feeling so light, happy and blissful. An end of an important life chapter and a start of a new journey. I have gained so much knowledge about yoga, myself, people, the universe, and it made me eager to learn even more.

Keeping all the beautiful moments close to me, meditation in the morning with the sunrise embracing your face, 108 sun salutation practice, the walks, deep talks and beaches, seeing Sticky Fingers and Ziggy Alberts live, being blessed by balinese holy water, dreaming underneath the stars at night, having the sweetest roommates, sharing all the knowledge about essential oils and crystals amongst the yogis, surfing with sunsets and Bintangs, daily vegan feasting, meeting local beautiful minded people. For every single moment, from the anatomy lectures from Sean to the Bintang sunsets with the sweetest people, I am beyond grateful.

Wishing all my yogis the best of luck and soooo proud of them for going through a soul expanding journey like this and seeing them grow and sparkle up . We will meet again. Having trust in what's coming next.

"Loved the course content and attention to detail"

Loved the course content and attention to detail. Each of the teachers gave their own personal input and shared their knowledge and understanding. The shala was beautiful and a great atmosphere was created, it became our home. Bente and Maria held lots of space for us to go through our own personal journeys. The group was incredibly supportive and I believe this came from their leadership. We learned so much depth about yoga and the surrounding subjects, yoga history and anatomy were paid particular detail too. There were plenty of activities to do which really added to the experience, the water temple was a special experience for me.

"Amazing month!"

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!

"...meeting incredible people and being taught by amazing teachers"

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 with 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!!

"The teachers were authentic..."

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.

"My experience with the peaceful warriors was great!"

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 😊

"An outstanding training & a game changer of your yoga journey"

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

"Unforgettable experience"

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.

"Couldn't have hoped for better. Highly recommend!"

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.

"...it was obvious that every possible detail had been thought of"

It’s difficult to know where to begin in describing the excellence of training I received from the Peaceful Warriors.

From the moment our group met, it was obvious that every possible detail had been thought of. The schedule was thorough but still allowed us time to see the local area and feel a real part of Bali. The support from our leaders Bente, Maria and all other staff was second to none. They were always available day or night for any queries and it was clear that they fully appreciated the roller coaster that a yoga teacher training can take an individual on, not just physically but emotionally. Since leaving the course, they have remained in contact and support all of our next steps whether we took the training to become a teacher or to deepen our practice. In most classes I have attended since finishing, the teacher has been able to recognise that I have undertaken a training often commenting on the understanding of my own body and postures that I now exhibit. And that is what the Peaceful Warriors give you in abundance; not just learning how to break down a posture or sequence and teach it successfully but a true knowledge of what yoga is about so that you can share that understanding where ever you go.

"...this is something I’ve wanted to do for a while"

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!

"Unforgettable experience"

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!
