“This Balanzs TT was far beyond my expectations! I didn’t know if I wanted to be a yoga teacher in the future. I started the course because I wanted to learn more about yoga and improve my personal practice. Shortly it became obvious that I want to teach yoga and share what I learnt.

The whole TT was run so smoothly and professionally yet humble. I have felt a true connection with the whole team. The brilliant Balanzs TT teachers are knowledgeable, dedicated and each of them has something unique to teach you! This TT is not only about learning the asanas and the teaching skills of how to teach yoga, but it’s also about integrating yoga into your daily life.

When I finished my course, I applied as a teacher and happily I have become a part of the team.

I would definitely recommend this TT to everyone who wants to learn more about Yoga in a safe, professional and personal atmosphere.”

“I often consider Balanzs my “yoga home”. My first studio yoga class took place at Balanzs. After completion of my Teacher Training at Balanzs, I am now fortunate that I am able to teach several classes a week at Balanzs.

The teacher training gave me a good foundation on which I could build the rest of my teaching career and all the classes since have helped, and still help, develop and refine my own personal teaching style.

Not only did the training kickstart my teaching career, it also allowed me to break free from an old life and career that I was no longer happy in, and so also helped lay the foundation for the person I am today.”

“I’ve always liked the atmosphere at Balanzs.

What I really liked about the TT is that we got to learn from different experienced teacher, each one of them sharing their own experience and knowledge. And all of them guided us with the same openness and kindness I know from Balanzs.

The TT provided me the opportunity to really discover myself as a (yoga)teacher. That was also what the teachers encouraged us to do. We were given lots of tools but mostly honest feedback on our own journey, the struggles that come along with it and of course also the beautiful parts of it.

During the whole teacher training I also felt the honest intention from the teachers, which is to spread yoga, kindness, love and to encourage each others inner strength. Sometimes it was confronting, but for me it felt like it all was for the good.”
