What our students think
Best experiences I’ve had
“I recently completed the Bend It Like Buddha 200RYT Course and I can honestly say, it was one of the best experiences I’ve had. As someone who has practiced yoga for a few years, it rapidly became a passion of mine and something I wanted to learn more about. The organisation of the whole course, made everything such a breeze. Although I’ve already completed the course, it’s definitely made me interested in furthering my studies and continuing to deepen my personal practice.”
“Amazing life changing experience!“
“Where do I even begin with writing this review. Bend it Like Buddha offered online YTT for a fraction of its cost when the world needed it most.. this defines them beautifully to me. The bend it like buddha team are a genuine, authentic and caring tribe of yogis.”
Positive: Communication, Professionalism, Quality
“Absolutely loved sharing my time with these guys. Thank you for the time and all I have learned. I never imagined I would learn so much pranayama, and about the human body and soul. Truly a life changing experience that I will carry on forever. I hope I get to learn more with you ❤️”
Great teachers and collegues!
“I did the 200h Yoga Teacher Training (acreddited by Yoga Alliance) and was an amazing experience! It was for sure the best part of Covid19 pandemic! The flexibility of the online course was super important for me. The zoom classes were great, and even if we couldn’t attend them online, we could see them after. I liked the way we were in touch with all colegues and focused in the course by the facebook group. I loved the homework’s feedback: really helpful and clear! Great teachers and collegues! I strongly recommend this course!”
“This training brought out a side of me I was hiding to myself, all my weaknesses and all my strengths in the same time. And if I made it, it’s because of all the beautiful people I found there, starting from teachers, sharing with us all the passion, all the knowledge, all the love they have for this beautiful discipline.I’ve learned so much on myself, on the world, on yoga… It makes me feel almost overwhelmed! And most of all, I loved every single moment, every little step of this journey, shared with the most beautiful souls I ever met.”
We LOVE to be of service to our yoga family around the world.
