Bend it like Buddha was great! The atmosphere was amazing, the teachers were incredible, and the food was delicious! The whole Bend it like Buddha team worked hard to make sure all the students were happy. I would definitely recommend this school to any yogi, young or old, new or experienced. I traveled all the way from Seattle to Portmão for this school and it was one of the best experiences I have ever had. Full Review

I started my Yoga Journey about 5 years ago, back in 2018. In 2020 due to the covid circumstances, I found the Bend it like Buddha Algarve School and decided to do my 200 Hour Training with them. It was a great decision and I am more than happy I had the chance to learn, practice and get my first teaching experience with them. Even after the training I felt still taken care of and supported. I also started teaching online for them, right after I completed my teacher training, with helped me a lot to get more confidence in my teachings. I can definitely recommend this school. Full Review
