We believe in in the strength of community and we offer you the opportunity to make deep and lasting connections and friendships. Strangers become family when we are all on the same path!

As part of your path to becoming a yoga teacher we invite you to explore the beauty and magic of Bali. A yogic Paradise. Canggu, a laid-back, serene yet vibrant and trendy beach town perched on the southwest coast of Bali. Nestled in between beautiful green terraced rice paddies and black sand beaches Canggu is the bohemian home away from home for yogis, surfers, spiritual seekers, conscious hipsters and healthy foodies. Canggu is the perfect balance of Balinese culture, authenticity and cool comfort. Canggu feels more like a state of mind than an actual place

We consider Bali part of our yogic path and we structure our course in such a way that you have time to explore this magical place. And as part of the course we offer you the opportunity to see Bali from a yogic point of view, inviting you to experience some of the amazing things that Bali has to offer

We offer you the opportunity to Surf while you deepen your yoga practice and become a yoga teacher. Our Shala is only minutes away from the beach and some of the best surf breaks in Bali. Surf lessons/guiding/packages and board rentals are easily organized. We are pleased to offer the highest level of professional instruction and surf guiding for an affordable price with our preferred surf partners.

We believe in yoga as a life journey of (self)-awareness and personal transformation. A deeply transformative ‘tool’ that brings about real change and growth in your life. Through this training we strive to offer you a deeply life changing experience and to find the support you need to leave the training not only a newly certified yoga teacher, but with a new way of looking at the world – evolve and connect with the best expression of yourself

THE TEACHERS | Meet the Peaceful Warriors

Maria has been practicing Yoga for the last 7+ years. From a young age, she was always passionate and interested in a variety of sports. It was in 2013, during her travels in Southeast Asia when she fell in love with yoga. During that time, she discovered yoga had much more to offer than she realized. This helped find the balance in life in which she was seeking. From here, she hasn’t stop learning all aspects of yoga. She still considers herself ‘a student’, always learning and getting inspired by others.


Maria completed her Vinyasa – Yoga Teacher Training (registered with Yoga Alliance) at Power of Now Oasis, in Bali. Since then, she has completed trainings and workshop in Yin Yoga, Restorative, FlyHigh Yoga and Acroyoga. Her journey didn’t stop there, as she took a100hr training in “Thai Yoga Massage” at Sunshine Massage School in Chiang Mai, Thailand.


One of her main goals is to share the benefits of yoga and bring more mindfulness and awareness into peoples lives, to live and enjoy the moment; and to connect with themselves. Yoga is not a competition.

As a teacher, Maria always has a big smile on her face along with her soothing voice, to create a space where everyone feel welcome.

Focused, but not restricted to Vinyasa and Hatha Flow, she loves to create a dynamic and challenging practice. Maria also teaches slow and deep Yin and Restorative Yoga. Including Pranayama breathing exercises, to center and balance her students during practice, helping them reach a meditative state of mind.

She loves the Ying and Yang aspect of yoga, the needed balance of life.

She also loves teaching FlyHigh and Acroyoga. Enjoying the playfulness and teamwork experience of its practice. Who knew that trust and fear facing exercises could be that fun?


Travelling changed Marias life and opened many doors. It’s that one thing she just loves. Planning the next trip in this big-small world, exploring new places and learning from different cultures. Just loving every aspect of it, almost as much as she loves chocolate. 😀

Through the years Bente has developed a strong personal practice and teaching style, continuously deepened and inspired by an endless number of auspicious yoga teachers, workshops, constant curiosity. lots of research…and lots and lots of playing around on the mat : )

Bente embraces a creative, full-spectrum approach to embodying the diversity of Hatha & Vinyasa Yoga, in the perfect blend of deep, grounding and soothing Yin & Restorative practices to vigorous, energizing. challenging and playful Vinyasa flows. Bente invites you into a moving flow. cultivating a strong. radiant, connected and flexible body and mind, with a combination of Hatha/Vinyasa Flow, Pranayama, fresh beats. deep meditative postures….and always lots of heart.
Bente is furthermore a very keen surfer. with a great love for the ocean. Often referring to the Ocean as her favourite yoga mat.

Bente strives to inspire her students to always move with ease. whether the movement is challenging or simple. Resting the focus calmly on the breath. moving safely, easily and efficiently. leaving space for the mind to get calm, centered, and focused.
