Testimonials from the YogaBeez teacher training:

“What a wonderful experience, a gift really which keeps on giving... Reconnecting with one's inner child felt warm and comfortable, seeing how simple things can make yoga accessible for children, making it FUN and joyous, and being surrounded with fellow students to embark on a path which is exciting and thrilling. A couple of months later I can say it has already entirely changed my perspective on things, life, friends, family and perhaps most of all, the way I look and interact with my own children.” Cindy Maas. Brussels, Belgium

After making the decision to train as a children’s yoga teacher I began to look for an in-depth training course. I was delighted to find Yogabeez. Bryony’s training covers the fullest age range that I could find. She also offers the most diverse training and covers the spiritual importance of Yoga. The Yogabeez training has far surpassed my expectations. Bryony not only teaches from her wide experience as a Montessori teacher and children’s yoga teacher, but also from the heart. She is very generous with her knowledge and brought out the potential in all of us. She teaches in a very fun and accessible way, which made the learning experience a wonderful adventure. I do truly feel armed with the tools to safely and effectively begin my journey of teaching. My heart pours out thanks and brims with knowledge." Josephine Reckitt, Kent, UK

The YogaBeez Foundation course was refreshing and inspiring and welcoming. The mix of people involved was wonderful and we were led in a flowing and imaginative journey." Jenny Pickston, Durban, South Africa

The YogaBeez training was really special. Just fabulous … the best think I’ve done in years!" Sara Spencer, Kent, UK “I realised during this course that a Children's Yoga class is really a laboratory and a microcosm and that we have unlimited possibilities to bring nature, sciences, arts, colours, psychomotor activities and languages to it. I have never thought of how a yoga class apart from passing on yoga which is already a treasure for us all, it can also be so rich pedagogically. Finally, after this training I realised how serious and buttoned up we all behave and that this is a big mistake. We slowly and gradually distance ourselves from the source of laughter and lightness that lies inside us. It was a great therapeutic experience for me to learn and also play and laugh with everyone else and touch and dance and move freely as a child. I felt safe in the hands of great educators who work with respect and love for children and took back home so much out of this training.” Despina Christadoni, Greece


"Thank you for your wisdom, passion, energy and warmth. You have given me the confidence to continue on this path of truth and light. May we all share the miracles of yoga with the same open heartedness that you gave it to us. This training was energizing, hands-on, creative and informative." Amy Friedman, Copenhagen, Denmark

"Bryony is the real deal when it comes to being both a yogi and a teacher. She comes from a wealth of experience and shares her knowledge in a genuine way. Her lessons and resources for teaching yoga to kids are thorough and effective, they exceeded my expectations. I feel really confident in starting my children's yoga classes." Kim Buikema, USA

As I reflect back to the beginning of my journey with Yoga Beez, I can definitely highlight the continuous understanding and support that I have received from Bryony, right from the very first time we spoke over the phone. Her passion and ambition to make a difference in today’s modern society was such an inspiration for me that I wanted to be part of this hive. Taking everything into account from the Foundation Stage, I can only re-affirm my strong believe and strongly commit myself into continuing the Yoga Beez unique journey. The knowledge and open approach of the tutors was a truly magnificent experience and I can hardly wait to see what the next modules unfold into! I think we all have brought together a really special gift to the course and hopefully we can all keep that special seed growing and look forward to celebrate together being part of the “Yoga Beez Family”. The possibilities and ideas were endless! I honestly can’t thank you enough for all the tools and inspiration that the training have given me to improve my current classes.” Lorena Luque, Argentina, South America.
