The training was fabulous! I loved the schedule, all the anatomy, the hands-on assisting, the group activities, the progression of the three weeks . . . what a wonderful place and group! I feel totally prepared to teach and so grateful for this little bubble of peaceful, powerful yogis. We were in such good hands! I trust Jennifer completely and have learned so much. Jennifer is a Goddess; she really held the space for us. Morning practice was consistently awesome. Having the new voices of adjunct teachers was really refreshing and balancing. They were incredible - so compassionate and genuine and open. I feel more equipped to live a healthy, abundant life after this experience. And, I can't wait to start teaching!

It would highly recommend this experience for anyone seeking to deepen their on practice, knowledge, and yoga community!

Jennifer Yarro is a wise, dedicated, and patient teacher. Her knowledge of yoga asana, theory, and philosophy is immense and is only rivaled by the compassion and playfulness with which she passes it on to her students in her teacher trainings. Learning in any capacity from Jennifer is a privilege and a blessing.

I cannot recommend Frog Lotus Yoga Teacher Training enough! In three weeks, the staff managed to turn me into a confident teacher! I came here more for my personal practice but now after the training, I cannot wait to go home and share! The teaching staff is amazing and have so much knowledge. I was constantly and all of them and all they shared with us. Thank you Jennifer & Frog Lotus Yoga!

Jennifer Yarro is one of those rare teachers that offers a unique balance of strong challenge and genuine support for her students. She has extensive knowledge of biomechanics, alignment, and uses a variety of healing arts to supplement her yoga teaching. Through her support and training, I have been able to elevate my teaching to a new level.

—Michael F.

The FLY training has power, has heart, and has compassion. You will come away from this training with a solid foundation in Hatha Yoga and Vinyasa Flow, anatomy...more importantly how each pose addresses/heals the body, and a clear understanding of how to intelligently sequence a class. In my travels with the non-profit I work with, I have met hundreds of yoga teachers. In my opinion many of them could have benefited from a FLY training with Jennifer Yarro and her staff. YOU WILL get your monies worth and a whole lot more with this training. This training is a fantastic, life-changing experience!

—Chris E.

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!

—Janet F.

I took my 200hr Intensive Yoga Teacher training with Jennifer Yarro of Frog Lotus Yoga in 2012. I absolutely loved the experience! The curriculum was extensive and thorough and I felt I was continually learning so much each day. In fact I learned more about Yoga during our training than I had ever expected. From the theory and traditional history of yoga, to anatomy, postures and everything in between, I came away feeling confident and ready to teach. Jennifer’s teaching style is strong and graceful, her patience and wisdom are a natural extension and you just know you are being guided by a teacher who really cares!

—Heather H

I began my training at Frog Lotus in 2010. Inspired by many years of practice, I was driven to share my passion for yoga with anyone interested. It was a beautiful journey. Training was intense and mind opening. I found myself enjoying every moment on the mat, sharing a unique bind with people who became life long friends. Jennifer Yarro is a gentle spirit who puts her whole heart and soul into her practice. Learning from her was an experience I will always cherish.

—Sherry Z.

The Frog Lotus Yoga 200 hour teacher training program is one of the best experiences I've had! I feel more than prepared to go out and teach. However, this program is even more than just a teacher training. I got to meet such amazing teachers and fellow students and really built some strong relationships while here in Bali! I recommend Frog Lotus Yoga to anyone considering a program even if it's just to develop your own personal practice.

—Trang H.

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!

She really holds the space for our sacred circle and touches people on a level that not many can. I am so grateful. The atmosphere is peaceful and inviting. I know I am a better, happier person because of this amazing experience.

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!

—Lesha B.

The teacher training with Frog Lotus and Jennifer Yarro 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.

—Patricia M.

Jennifer is an amazing yoga instructor with many years of experience; you will notice it the minute you walk in to her class. Every class of the training was dynamic, fun and I learned a lot about how my body works. Jennifer will walk you step by step thru the asanas with clear and very specific instructions and will always show modifications making the class appropriate for every level. I definitely recommend Frog Lotus Yoga to all my friends!

—Mirtha Q.

The training was so amazing. There was so much love and intention that went into it all. It exceeded any expectations and such a nice atmosphere was created here. Jennifer is a great teacher with the right attitude, right amount of compassion and presence, and a disciplined focus. So much valuable wisdom and knowledge was passed down, thank you! The staff was great! Everyone is friendly and warm. The food was tasty, nourishing, beautiful, thoughtfully prepared, fresh, balanced, and absolutely delicious. Overall, so so awesome!
