I feel like I made an excellent choice for my teacher training. The teaching of the poses was excellent - Jennifer has a special gift for teaching. She is very attentive and accommodating, yet she remains objective. I learned so many techniques and secrets to help help me better my practice. There are so many different trainings being offered all over the world, and this training was the best one for me. There is so much emphasis on correct alignment and safety. Thank you Jennifer and Frog Lotus Yoga!
Overall, this has been one of the most life-changing, inspiring, and introspective things I've ever done. I took a huge risk coming here, not knowing the studio/philosophy/teacher, and I so thrilled to say that Frog Lotus Yoga and Jennifer were 100% the right choice for me. Thank you! A+ for course content. The assisting was a great addition; the poses were covered very thoroughly and I loved the anatomy. When people within the yoga community ask me where and with whom I trained, I will be so excited to say "Frog Lotus with Jennifer Yarro!"
The training was great. Jennifer clearly put her heart and soul into the work and was completely supportive throughout our process. I feel empowered and well on my way to teaching. I would recommend this program to others without a doubt.
The teacher training at Frog Lotus not only changed my practice but also rooted me in a confident, competent place to share the gift with others. There are many teacher trainings available, but none with the well-roundedness or heart and soul of the Frog Lotus experience. So much expertise was bestowed on me for the money.
This training allows the space for physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual bodies to develop and emerge. If someone wants a life-changing experience, this is the place. Jennifer is very knowledgeable. She is supportive and nurturing, yet was able to hold us accountable. I respect Jennifer as a teacher and as an aware human being. All the teachers were really supportive of the trainees' endeavors here. Thank you thank you thank you!
This training was one of the best, if not the best, experience of my life. I feel that I have more than enough knowledge and skills to succeed. Everyone should go to Frog Lotus Yoga teacher training! I am truly privileged and blessed to have the opportunity to learn from Jennifer. Her loving patience and perseverance pulls us all together. She really holds the space for our sacred circle and touches people on a level that not many can. I am so grateful. The classes at the studio welcome anyone and everyone. The atmosphere is peaceful and inviting. I know I am a better, happier person because of this amazing experience.
The training was exactly what I was looking for with some surprises. This was not just a teacher training but also life lessons and a chance to go really deep within. The course content was challenging and interesting. I know I have the grounding for a solid career.
The training was incredible! Well worth my time, effort, and money. I learned an amazing amount over the course of a month and feel fully capable of going out into the world as a yoga instructor.
Jennifer's support as a teacher is really a gem. She makes space for all of her students and pushes them to be their best selves. I thought the teaching and practicing of assists was superb. Jennifer loves to share all that she knows; her excitement, enthusiasm, and deep respect for the learning process made our training a great experience.
You can't get any better than Jennifer; she is super accomplished, amazing, and very knowledgeable. She is approachable and giving, but tough in a good way!
The training is a month of intensive physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual growth. It's a life-changing experience and a spa for the soul. The course content is well-rounded and enlightening. Jennifer is a phenomenal woman who inspired me creatively, professionally, and personally. I am blessed to have had her at the beginning of my teaching journey.
