    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 :)

    Due to 2020 being very 2020 I had to switch to the online version. It had a few teething issues as it was newly created due to the Pandemic, so it wasn't the most polished course when it comes to video quality, communication and layout. I would have much preferred an in person course as I am a tactile learner BUT we were all learning how to make 2020 work! And in the end they did make it work. From what I have seen they have taken on feedback and continue to learn and improve the online experience and all students get to remain part of the online community which is loving and supportive. All the teachers, both yoga and other specialists were incredibly knowledgeable and passionate and I learnt so much more than I expected and continue to. It is so much more than teaching people how to perform and teach Asanas. They really dive deeply into all 8 limbs of Yoga philosophy and it really helps deepen the understanding of the practice as well as provide business tools to create your own sustainable business. Thank you for the life lessons!

    I would highly recommend Bend it like Buddha Algarve as a first 200hr training. Everything was spot on. Location - Easy to get to from Faro Airport (and transfers arranged by BILB), beautiful beaches, all the amenities needed such as pharmacy, shops etc Hotel - 4 stars, very clean, kitchenette, large enough bathroom, bedroom and sitting area, comfortable after a full day at studio, excellent wifi Food - Amazing, super juice and cafe Rocha fed us well, I felt so healthy from all the juices and tasty meals Studio - Clean and cool (needed in hot Portugal), mats and props provided Schedule - 10/10 schedule, the day flowed seamlessly and each class was taught by very good teachers Yoga - I came home stronger and more flexible with the classes we attended each day The certificate - I felt confident to teach after leaving the course. I have already started my own business teaching and have started to see the returns coming in already Thank you Farrah and all the other teachers for a wonderful course xx
