    The 200hour training with Bend it Like Buddha yoga school was thorough, informative and I felt well supported by the teachers throughout. The feedback that I received from my teaching practice was very encouraging but there was also helpful guidance in developing my skills as a teacher. The written information was brilliant and the online portal was very helpful. The facebook group that was set up was also a helpful resource.

    Teachers were skilled and had clear pedagogy, and made me feel supported throughout the training. I had some issues with their administrative organization and customer service, but the training I received despite that was stellar.

    My experience training with Bend it like Buddha Algarve was unforgettable. The teachers and classes were so welcoming and informative. My time here not only taught me about what was needed for my 200h but also about life beyond just the asanas. I also made some life long friends that I will be forever grateful for.

    Overall the athmosphere was very warm and welcoming on the online YTT. I liked the combination of live classes, recorded videos and teachable platform. Online live classes with Danni were just beautiful. Danni is very inspiring and competent teacher! The let downs were video and audio quality in some of the lectures. Also I would have appreciated better information about practical things like graduation dates or cancellations of lectures. I loved the facebook community for students which was very supportive. Teacher Laurens feedback of the homeworks were very thorough which was superb!

    Bend it like Buddha Teacher Training got me through 2020! I wish I could have done the in person training but with the pandemic, I opted for the online TT. Even though the instructors and fellow classmates were spread out across the globe, there was such a beautiful sense of community. I would love to continue future teacher trainings with Bend it like Buddha, hopefully in person next time!

  • The immense positive energy, passion and wisdom of all my teachers is something I will never forget and is what I would love to share going forward. A whole new world is unfolding for me now, and I have Farrah, Danni, Reshy, and Lauren to thank! Thank you for sharing so much with me, and starting me on my journey!

    I loved my training with Bend It Like Buddha!! The teachers are amazing, I loved the online training as well as the in person one (I completed one of each). The content was presented in an easy and understandable way, the classes were engaging and a real community was build. I went through such a transformation with both trainings and will be forever grateful to have been able to participate. Thank you so much!!! Namaste :)
