My Yogateachertraining in Bali

If you would have told me one year ago, that I will become a yoga teacher and do my yoga teacher training in BaliI probably wouldn’t have believed you. But there is one thing I’ve learned during our world trip last year: it never comes like you thought it would. I thought a couple of time about developing myself and do this training, but I did the final decision last summer 2019. I never thought I would teach yoga in the end. I decided to do the training to dive deeper in my own practice, to learn more about yoga itself and to develop myself personally. After some research I found the perfect yoga school in Bali, which sounds for me the best to do so. I contacted them immediately, but they told me they were fully booked and I have to apply for it at least one year in advance. But luck meant well and Bente (one of the lead teachers) contacted me again to told me they have a free slot and if I’m still interested I can jump in the course scheduled for next month. I remember this moment so clearly, I was sitting in our camper van in New Zealand and got some tears in my eyes. YES, of course. I immediately booked some flights to Bali and just a few weeks later we found ourselves at the airport in Bali with four exciting weeks ahead.

You don’t have to be super flexible and you definitely don’t have to do some of those advanced Instagramable asanas to do the yoga teacher training in Bali. Definitely not. One or two years of a regular yoga practice is definitely enough, to do the 200hr course. The most important thing is to know that you’re not a perfect yoga teacher after this training. But you will become after practicing, teaching and more experiences. The decisions to do my yoga teacher training in Bali was one of the best decisions of my life so far.

One month later and 200 hr packed with yoga, meditation, pranayama, workshops and learning how to teach, I’m a certificated yoga teacher.

This training was an unforgettable experience with a lot of emotional up and downs and you can’t thing you’re going on a relaxed Bali yoga holiday. Then you are definitely wrong and at the wrong place. Physically and emotionally you will push yourself to your limits. The days are fully packed and well planned and you will try to get over all those new and interesting things you’re learning during this time. That’s why it is really important to be well prepared before you’re doing this training.

The Peaceful Warriors in Bali

After some research I found The Peaceful Warriors and it sounds for me like the perfect yoga teacher training. The include everything I was looking for and managed to make these four weeks to one of the bests in my life. I decided to do my training with a focus on hatha and vinyasa yoga, because I practiced myself vinyasa yoga before. Another important thing for me was that the training was thought in english. One the one hand to improve my english skills and on the other and to get more possibilities to work world wide in the end. And as I knew Bali pretty well, because I’ve been there more than eight times before. I knew that the island of gods was the perfect place for me. Canggu offers the best conditions with nice longboard waves, the best vegan cafés and restaurants you can ask for and a great flair. I’m a huge Canggu fan and The Peaceful Warriors are doing their training in Canggu.

The two danish women Bente & Maria founded The Peaceful Warriors a few years ago in Bali and more than 400+ students choose their path with them. The training is perfectly put together and there is nothing I could admit to this.

From the beginning to the end it’s perfectly designed. As well as the selection of the 25 students. We were 25 Women’s and after one week I’ve got 25 sisters. Even we were just women there was no space for anger or jealousness. Quitte the contrary: I have 25 new close friend all over the world and love to see how all of them fulfill their dreams.

To do my yoga teacher training in Bali with The Peaceful Warriors was one of the best decisions in my life so far. It was an unforgettable and unbelievable beautiful time I don’t wanna miss. If I could do so I would do it all over again and again. I learned so many incredible things during these four weeks, about myself, my body and my mind. I will never forget this time. And after just two month I’m already teaching yoga, have a couple of classes every week and love every single minute of teaching. Even though I thought I will never be a teacher.
