    The training provided by Bend It Like Buddha Algarve Portugal was absolutely brilliant! The teachers were all highly experienced, knowledgeable in their area and highly skilled communicators and taught to a high standard. The teaching, while focussing on Ashtanga/Vinyassa styles was well rounded and inclusive. The training in Asana was unbelievably good and I learned so much from observing and taking part in beautifully constructed flows. The training was highly practical and students were teaching and presenting from day one. I feel that I finished the training well prepared to start teaching yoga, confident to do so safely and inclusively, aware still of how much I have to learn. The whole BILB team were friendly and professional. Accommodation and food were great, and its in a beautiful place with a stunning beach. Did I mention that it was a whole lot of fun too!

    I would highly recommend this school for training to be a yoga teacher! The course gave me the knowledge, experience and confidence I needed to start teaching immediately as soon as I returned home. The course schedule is well planned and content heavy, in a good way! The days are well planned out with a good mixture of educational content, teaching experience, personal development and growth, and asana practice. My only minor constructive feedback would be for the schedule to include more movement during the day (e.g. a mini 30 minute asana practice before lunch). But the course gives really excellent value for money and the teachers inspire the students to perform to their best ability - a very supportive environment! Amazing 2 weeks experience with Bend it Like Buddha and an experience I will never forget. I am eternally grateful to Farrah and the BILB team for providing such a great yoga teacher training course :)

    The two week intensive made for an absolutely immersive experience that was so incredible! For two weeks, we lived and breathed yoga. We had 5 teachers throughout the training, each with their own styles and specialties. Additional experiences, such as cacao ceremony, sound bath meditation, Reiki workshop and a private talk with a Buddhist monk added so much to the training. Months later, I still look back on and draw inspiration from those experiences, both in my teaching and my personal practices. A highlight for me was the several hours dedicated to an arm balance and inversion workshop in the second week of the course. It really helped to transform my personal practice and was so much fun! The teacher training took me beyond my comfort zone to a place where I was really able to grow and learn. Daily teaching practice gave me the confidence and ability to start teaching yoga right away. Immediately after training, I came home and began offering donation based classes in my local community. It's now been almost 4 months since I finished teacher training with Bend It Like Buddha and I'm now teaching yoga classes for a resort and at a local fitness center. Beyond being an incredible teacher training experience, the location by the beach in Portugal is amazing!

    It was great experience and I could not recommend Bend it like Buddha teacher training more. I absolutely loved Ashtanga Lessons with Dani Cullen and Yoga Nidra with Farah Furtado.

    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.
